No. It will not work. The bootcamp thunderbolt drivers are not plug and play, you need to connect your devices to the macbook before booting up the machine. This means that you CANNOT simply plugin the display as you are used to with any other computer when using Windows. When you leave the room for a meeting, and return, you have to reboot, at which stage your display, keyboard, NIC etcetera are sometimes recognized, but surely not all the times. It's a very disapointing solution I am sorry to say and not workable.
(I am using a Macbook Pro retina and Thunderbolt display from May 2014, with the lates updates and patches)

Yes, taken from apple support article HT4951
"To use your Apple Thunderbolt Display with Windows 7 using Boot Camp, you will need:
A Thunderbolt-capable Mac.
The latest software and firmware updates for Thunderbolt-capable computers.
For OS X Lion, Boot Camp 4.0 (included with Lion).
For Mac OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard, Boot Camp 3.3 update."
