A glimpse into the private world of the man who was King Edward VIII for just ten months in 1936 and of the woman he loved and married in June 1937.
In an informal conversation with Kenneth Harris, recorded at their Paris home, the Duke and Duchess speak of their life together. The Duke talks about the Establishment, his father, golf, blood sports, and his great-niece: the Duchess on children and their parents, careers for women, loneliness, and the Duke's bad habits.
