Edward VIII's 1936 abdication was 'the last thing' Wallis Simpson wanted

Edward VIII's 1936 abdication was 'the last thing' Wallis Simpson wanted, says

British author Anna Pasternak told People for its Royals' special fall edition that Edward had 'a ferocious, obsessive love for Wallis and was never going to let her go'. The Duke's abdication, which occurred in December 1936, rocked the monarchy and the country to its core - but apparently the woman he did it all for was against him making such a decision. Edward wed Wallis (pictured left), who was thought unfit to be Queen, having been married twice, in Tours, France (pictured right), a year after he ceased to be King.
