I wanted to share this video from CBS news that is tied to Madonna's new movie WE for Wallis and Edward, King Edward VIII and divorcee Wallis Simpson, whom he abdicated the throne of England to marry. The videa includes info about a new book with exerpts of letters the author recently found by Wallis to her ex husband. I found it very interesting and wanted to pass it on.
If Edward had not abdicared to marry Wallis, King George VI, father of Queen Elizabeth would not have been king and therefore no Prince William in the lineup down the road. England also may well have caved to Hitler, as Edward was a know Nazi sympathizer.
As Noel Coward said "There should be a statue of Wallis Simpson in every English village for saving the nation in time of war".
The video below starts with a commercial of course....sigh....
