The King's Speech
In my books Mrs Simpson takes great delight in making fun of the then Duke of York for his horrible stammer, and criticises his wife at her lack of style.She calls her the dowdy duchess. Of course the Duchess made it quite clear that she disapproved of Mrs Simpson and that Mrs Simpson would never be one of them.
When the Prince of Wales abdicated, putting her husband on the throne instead,the new Queen Elizabeth never forgave Mrs Simpson--to the extent that she had never allowed Mrs Simpson back in the country not even for her husband's funeral.
Hopefully I'll be back to typing a week or so.
