The story of Edward VIII’s American mistress then wife from her early days in Baltimore to a life in exile after Edward's abdication in 1936

Based on Wallis Simpson’s letters and diaries, this follows Edward VIII’s American mistress then wife from early days in Baltimore to a life in exile after Edward’s abdication in 1936.
