Many princes who were born to be kings have vowed to be true to their lady loves. However, in a thousand years of the British monarchy only one has dared to resign his crown for a woman's love. This documentary is the real history of a man born to be king who refused to behave like one. Instead, he believed he could use the power and majesty of the throne to pursue his obsession with his twice-divorced American mistress, Wallis Simpson. It recounts a familiar tale, but from a fascinating new perspective, exploring warning signs that were evident in Edward from an early age that ultimately led to years of scandal and controversy in the 20th century British monarchy.
