The man who would be king (and step down)

In which G.M. Norton admires a fallen king and his super stylish wife.

This weekend marks the 80th anniversary of the abdication of King Edward VIII so he could marry his beloved, Wallis Simpson.

King Edward VIII, who later became Duke of Windsor, was king for less than 11 months and hadn't even had his coronation. 

I've penned an article on this in issue 09 of In Retrospect magazine which is out now.

Today I thought I would simply admire some pictorials of the super stylish couple. Fancy joining me?

  1. Lovely pictures. Thanks for sharing :-)

  2. I'm so fascinated with Wallis and Edward and just lap up any photos and info about them. I mean seriously, it really is the greatest love story of all time! I look forward to having a read of your article in In Retrospect.
