One of the Best Documentaries Ever!
25 January 2000 | by JREwing7See all my reviews

Inside look at the life of King Edward VIII from his birth until he left England. A "must see" for anyone who is interested in the Royal Family or British History. Includes in-depth interviews with His Royal Highness The Duke of Windsor and The Duchess of Windsor. Based upon His Royal Highness's book of the same name, published in 1951. I would advise everyone to see this film.
