Storyline

According to research, mainly from FBI files, British king Edward's abdication was not exactly the price for marriage to twice-divorced American Wallis Simpson, an outrage, especially for the royal head of the Anglican church. It was a convenient excuse for the British government to remove a royal prince who, from before his ascension to the throne end even during the Second World War, let his Nazi sympathies prevail on patriotism, making him a spy for Berlin, mainly trough Von Ribbentrop. Hitler hoped to restore Edward as a satellite pawn after militarily conquering Britain. Written by KGF Vissers

A great synopsis of Edward's treason
13 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The facts of Edward VIII's treason have been covered up so well by those protective of the monarchy's image (and that even includes Churchill, for whom Edward was his worst nightmare) that the world still thinks of his story as a romantic sacrifice instead of what it really is: the story of a blatant traitor to his country, who endangered the lives of millions of Allies and who favored and aided Hitler and Nazism.

This documentary is one of a few that have been done on this subject. Another good, though longer, one is "Edward VIII: The Traitor King." The virtue of this particular documentary is that it's short and to the point, easy to follow, and doesn't include an overwhelming amount of less-important information.

It's available to watch on YouTube, if you search for the playlist title of "The UK's Nazi King Edward VIII, Duke of Windsor: Traitor & Enemy of Britain."
