Storyline

With Wallis firmly established as his mistress and his hostess, gossip and muttering begins. When her instructions to the household staff are ignored, the Prince lets it be known in no uncertain terms that whatever she says is to be followed to the letter. With her husband unavailable due to business commitments, Wallis and the Prince set off for an extended holiday sailing in the Mediterranean. King George V and Queen Mary are concerned at the Prince's lengthy absence from his official duties all the more so when he extends the holiday by three weeks. They are also concerned that he has yet to marry and that his relationship with Wallis may lead to something more serious. The King consults the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Prime Minister but all agree that little harm can come of the relationship as long as she remains married. On the death of his father, the Prince becomes King Edward VIII. Written by garykmcd
