Based on the book "Edward VIII" by Frances Donaldson.
On the evening of December 11, 1936, England's King Edward VIII formally broadcast his farewell to a nation. Torn between duty and love, he had decided to follow his heart. Follows the true story and the unforgettable romance that developed between the Prince of Wales and an extraordinary American woman named Wallis Simpson. That she was already married and rumored to have had other affairs, ruffled more than a few feathers. The scandal only heats up as the Prince becomes King and declares his intention to marry his mistress, who has since become divorced and available.
