Bambi, the more gentler of the two, decided to turn legit and set up her own firm of bodyguards for the Las Vegas clubs and hotels, called Bambi’s Bouncers. Thumper loved a life of crime too much, and ran her own underground assassin for hire business, Thumper’s Thumpers. They still send each other a Xmas card, however.
Whatever became of Draco is one of the great lingering questions in the books and films. Would Fleming have brought back the character if he'd lived longer? I'm inclined to say yes--at the very least Fleming would have referenced Draco in a future Bond novel. Bond having an ex father-in-law who happened to be one of the biggest crime bosses in Europe...surely that would have provided further material!
"Did Draco seek out Blofeld for revenge?" Bond took care of this in the books. As for the movies, perhaps Draco was in Maibaum's early treatments for DAF, when Lazenby was still Bond? All the more reason why someone needs to study that material!
"Did he continue his efforts with the Union-Corse?" I have the feeling that Tracy's death, arriving so soon after she was "cured" of depression, must have taken a lot out of Draco. Perhaps he began relaxing his hold on the Union. Perhaps he began losing power and was pushed out during a power struggle. A civil war within the Union Corse could have been the subject of a future Bond story.
"Did he and Bond remain close?" We were deprived of a scene of the two grieving together at her funeral. Perhaps Draco would have held Bond somehow responsible for her death, or regretted encouraging her to marry a man with such a dangerous profession. But he just as easily could have had the opposite reaction. As Tracy poignantly said, "Whatever happens Papa, there will be no regrets."

He was father-in-law to Bond. He watched his daughter marry and then dealt with the tragic news of her death. He's such a wonderful character in the Bond universe and in the movie much beloved. Head of the Union Corse who rivalled S.P.E.C.T.R.E in scope and size. Yes his name was Marc-Ange Draco!
I know Raymond Benson brought him back for a novel of his. But lets forget that and answer the question...whatever happened to Marc-Ange Draco? Did he seek out Blofeld for revenge? Did he continue his efforts with the Union-Corse? Did him and Bond remain close? Lots of questions with this one...what say you Mi6...whatever happened to Marc-Ange Draco?
Bravo sir! 😂
And thanks @thedove - funnily enough I do love Bambi and Thumper, they’re two of my favourite characters but I can’t for the life of me imagine where they might end up! I’m getting my thinking cap on tho. Keep up the great thread! 👍
