|Wallace Simpson Two-Timed Prince of Wales|
- Edward was never told of his wife's extra-curricular activity
WALLACE SIMPSON was two-timing Edward, the heir to the British throne, back in the 1930s, newly released government papers have revealed.
The relationship and then marriage of Simpson and Edward was the deepest crisis the British monarchy faced in the last century with the possible exception of the post-Diana grief period when many saw the Queen and Prince Charles as villains.
Edward was forced to abdicate the throne when he insisted on marrying the American socialite Simpson, whose divorcee status was unacceptable to establishment opinion at the time.
What is most intriguing about the revelations is that it appears the powers that be decided not to tell Edward his belle was also romantically involved with car salesman Guy Trundle. There is now speculation that establishment high-ups were keen to get rid of Edward, considered a wild card partly due to his support for fascism, in favour of the more reliable George, father of the present Queen.
