What a crazy love story this was. Giving up the fame and fortune of a royal life for the love of a woman.
Dreamy.

This is the most romantic love story I ever heard. The Nazi part, the spy part and the cheating are adorable.

This story is both inspirational and fascinating on many levels. But what kind of a name for a woman is Wallis?

One of those WASPy last-name-as-first-name deals.
Giving up the throne for love: priceless. Collusion with the Nazis: deplorable. For everything else, there's Mastercard.

Wallis Simpson was a truly awful person who came along at the right time and tilted the course of history. What would have happened to England at the outset of WWll if this great admirer of Hitler had been king?

i think he made the wrong decision. the women he married had married before and that didn't end well so giving up his spot as king to marry a women that hasn't had a good relationship is a dumb idea
