Description
Prince Edward's relationship with American divorcée Wallis Simpson sparked an international scandal that led to his abdication of the throne of England, and yet he narrowly missed being embroiled in a considerably more damaging fiasco. Drawing upon extensive research in the Royal Archives and private collections, Andrew Rose's history—which features 16 pages of photographs—offers an account of the young Edward's World War I–era relationship with a member of the Parisian demimonde, Marguerite Alibert. Years after the romance ended, Alibert murdered her Egyptian playboy husband, and the ensuing trial threatened to expose the affair and Edward's dishonorable wartime service—unless the Royal Family intervened.
