This documentary tells one of the most dramatic stories of the 20th century. Using rare and previously unseen archive and interviews with Edward and Wallis Simpson, this is the real story of the man who gave up the throne to pursue his obsession with a twice-divorced American.
The strength of Edward’s feelings for his lover sparked the abdication crisis of 1936. Instead of a coronation in 1937, Edward married Wallis, and as the Duke and Duchess of Windsor the couple embarked into a life of exile and roleless celebrity.
