The attached article is a very juicy, action-packed piece written in the immediate aftermath of the abdication of Edward VIII. The journalist detailed how the whole affair evolved at 10 Downing Street and in the parliament; the reaction across the empire. The writer also endeavored to introduce the readers to the two unknown heirs: George VI (1895 1952) and Elizabeth II (b. 1926).

"Thus the ruler of the world's greatest empire joined the shabby band of ex-kings: the wood-chopper of Doorn, Germany's forgotten All Highest; Alfonso of Spain, who roams the Continent looking for pleasure; Ferdinand of Bulgaria, an old man doddering over his stamps; Prajadhipok of Siam, Haile Selassie of Ethiopia, Abdel Medjik of Turkey, and Amanullah of Afghanistan."

At the end of the day, history will remember him simply as one of the most henpecked husband.
