内容説明

In this candid and moving account Susan Williams tells the story of wht really happened, drawing on diaries, secret documents and thousands of letters sent to Edward by the public to re-create the tgragic events that led to his abdication. She reveals a hugely popular, deeply loved monarch, one whose modern ideas and sympathy for the poor so unsettled the establishment that his devotion to Wallis Simpson provided the peercect excuse to force him off the throne.
