On the 11th of December 1936, a man spoke on the BBC. Millions of listeners held their breath as he announced his resolve to go forward with a decision which was, and remains, unique in British history: his abdication to the throne. That man was Edward VIII. The reason behind his abdication was his love for a woman that the British Court and the establishment would have never accepted as a Queen: the American, twice divorced, Wallis Simpson.

E60: Edward VIII

Play
Read more

King Edward VIII reigned for just 327 days, abdicating the throne after a crisis that involved his being romantically involved with an American divorcee named Wallis Simpson. Following his abdication of the throne, both Edward and his new wife were roundly accused of being Nazi sympathisers, with both having close ties to Nazi government elites. Edward would regularly correspond with Nazi officials, allegedly making statements on more than one occasion that indicated that his loyalty to Britain was now in question. This would lead to the Nazis devising a plan that allegedly involved installing Edward as king once again, using his questionable loyalty to their advantage.

In this episode, we discuss the state of Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1936, the Edward VIII abdication crisis, Operation Willi, the Marburg Files, and much more.
