Andrew Lownie examines the years following the abdication of Edward VIII when the former king was in exile, feuding with his family over status for his wife, Wallis Simpson. He argues that the Windsors were not the naïve dupes of the Germans, but actively intrigued against Britain in both war and peace.
Andrew will be interviewed by Revd Canon Christopher Smith
