Summary Of Each chapter
A lonely child
Prince Edward was born in 1894.His father,George was a cold man and didn't like the children.He thought his child was noisy.In this chapter,Edward once told a story about the house where they lived.When they were going to have their dinner,the servant brought the food to the wrong room and the king became angry.It could happen because Buckingham Palace was very big and people sometimes got lost.Edward didn't go to school,he was alone and he had a special class in the Buckingham palace
The Prince Of Wales
In the spring of 1911 King told him to make him Prince of Wales and he gave him clothes for the ceremony.
At first,He didn't want to wear them because he was just 16 years old and thought he would look like as a girl.In the ceremony,he became embrassed when he saw the crowd.
The Royal Star
After a year at Oxford University, Edward went to fight in the First World War, where he couldn't forget what he saw; his driver was dead.While he was away,somebody shot him. The war finished, in 1918, Edward returned to Buckingham Palace. During the five years he travelled 240,000 kilometres and 45 different countries. He was the different from the others. Because he was a man of the people with a hear of gold.
He met his love,Wallis, in the autumn of 1930. Wallis was married and she was beatifully dressed and smiled all the time. She told him; "Your trousers' are and your shoes' colours don't look right together." He realized that she was right. He wanted to learn everything about Mrs Wallis Simpson from Lady Furness.
Wallis was born in Baltimore. Her father died when she was 5 months old. Wallis wasnt unhappy child like Edward. She married Winfield Spencer who lost some money in the street. After the situation he began to drink so she had an unhappy marriage. Edward gave a birthday party for Wallis. They went to skiing and he proposed her. She thought it's just like a dream...
The King Is Dead! Long Live the King!
His father was ill and Edward knew he was going to die. When he arrived, the King opened his eyes and smiled. He said to him to be good to your mother after midnight he died. His three brothers came to him and they said; "The King is dead, long live the king". Edward informed it to Wallis but he said that nothing wouldn't be change and she'd be his queen.
Wallis wrote a letter to her husband to divorce from him. He replied and he accepted to do what she wanted. Next day, Edward met Archbishop of Canterbury and he learned their divorce was wrong in the eye of God. He understood that the Church would be against their marriage.
They met Prime Minister Metaxas, in Greece, Kemal Ataturk in Turkey, and King Boris in Bulgaria. He asked to Baldwin, the prime minister; "Do you think that divorce is modern?" and Baldwin agreed but also said she can't marry a king. But King said that he can't live without her. Next morning, "You told me that Wallis cant marry a King, so I'll gave the crown to my brother. I must follow my heart." The King said to Baldwin. King phoned Winston Churchill to say 'George will be king.'
That Woman I Love
His last night in England,'I want to be modern, kind King. I wanted to change the world but they stopped me. I've to leave.' Later, hundread of people come to see him. And they shouted,'Long live the King long live love.' Edward kissed his mother and he left his country as a thief. And George who is Edward's brother, became a King. When Edward arrived Hortsmouth a voice said;' The King is here', he suprised and said; ' I'm not a King, I'm just man in love.
The next morning, Edward phoned Wallis and he said; 'I left everything for you, but I love you. and I'm happiest man in the world.' In the wedding ceramony none of the Royal family came. He suprised and he called his brother to say,'Why didn't you came?' he replied,'I dont like your wife you can live here but Wallis not.' After this answer he understood that his family didn't want his wife so I didn't want them too.
