Summary
In 1936, Edward VIII abdicated in order to marry the woman he loved, Wallis Simpson, a twice divorced American. These events caused a scandal around the world and Wallis has since been demonized as the woman who stole the King of England. Wallis and Edward presents these events from Wallis's point of view. The drama follows the beginning of their affair, when Edward was the playboy Prince of Wales and Wallis was married to Ernest Simpson. When Wallis and Ernest finally divorce, the fear that Edward will seek to marry this American commoner builds toward a showdown, with even Wallis urging him to accept reality and let her go
