Summary

Biographer Anne Sebba examines 15 letters by Wallis Simpson, the American socialite who was widely perceived to have lured Edward VIII away from the British throne. The documents were written around the time of the king's abdication in December 1936 and indicate she was in love with another man - information that could change Simpson's historical profile.
