OK but one-sided
3 December 2005 | by (Sunderland, England) – See all my reviews

A good-enough documentary of his life up to the time he left England.

But it is one-sided. Little is said of his "spoilt-brat" attitude.

Nothing much after the Abdication - which the Duke usually saw as the world trying to stop him doing what he wanted. The book was published in 1951, so this "documentary" makes nothing of the wasted 1950s when the Duke and Duchess wandered from one party to another, spending the allowance and cash from the sale of his private estates which saw them end up effectively broke, living in a free house courtesy of the French Government.

A watchable film based on the book designed to paint the Windsors in the best possible light, and ignore anything that might tarnish the image.
