Wallis & Edward

Who: Wallis Simpson & Edward VIII A.K.A. Edward Albert Christian George Andrew Patrick David Windsor.
Married on:
3rd June 1937
Location: Château de Candé, in Monts, Indre-et-Loire in France (loaned to them by French millionaire Charles Bedaux).
Edward said:  “I have found it impossible to carry the heavy burden of responsibility and to discharge my duties as king as I would wish to do without the help and support of the woman I love.”
Wallis said: “You have no idea how hard it is to live out a great romance.”

Key questions we explore in this podcast:

  1. Are we still subject to the anti-Wallis propaganda of the 30s?
  2. Does sex as a power tool work equally well for men and women (Cleopatra Clips* aside)?
  3. What on earth was Madonna’s film about Wallis Simpson called?

Take 30-ish minutes of time to hear us talk about those things here:

*You’ll need to listen to the podcast to find out exactly what a Cleopatra Clip is.
Rest assured it’s rude.
