Summary

Alice Ravenscroft discovers how her great grandfather was Wallis Simpson's lawyer, tackling one of the most significant divorce cases of the 20th century prior to her marriage to the Duke of Windsor, formerly Edward VIII. Fiona Crace learns about how her relative - the Bishop of Bradford - gave a sermon in December 1936 to his diocese during the height of the constitutional crisis, in which he criticised the moral leadership of the king, as he prepared to renounce his crown in favour of the woman he loved. Presented by Chris Hollins.
