Description

'This riotous and engaging biography has it all'
GUARDIAN

'As much fun to read as a good political thriller'
WALL STREET JOURNAL

At the outbreak of war, the British monarchy was in turmoil. Edward VIII had abdicated, leaving his brother Bertie to take on a role he never expected: King George VI. Meanwhile, as Edward awaited the decree that would allow him to marry his mistress, Wallis Simpson, he took an increasing interest in Hitler's expansionist plans. How did this squabbling, dysfunctional family manage to unite in the face of the greatest conflict in their lifetimes? And what was the true extent of Edward's betrayal?

'Genuinely revealing, politically insightful, scrupulously researched . . . has the narrative pace of a champion thoroughbred'
Tina Brown, author of THE PALACE PAPERS
