Edward VIII: The King Who Threw Away His Crown tells one of the most dramatic stories of the 20th century. Using rare and previously unseen archive and interviews with Edward and Wallis, this is the real story of the man who gave up the throne to pursue his obsession with a twice-divorced American, Wallis Simpson. The strength of Edward’s feelings for his lover sparked the abdication crisis of 1936.
