Behind the Scenes
After his audience with Baldwin, the King spoke to his mother and brothers to tell them that he wanted to marry Mrs. Simpson. He said that he was prepared to give up the throne for her if he could not have his way, but, at least to the Duke of Kent, he made it clear that he wanted to make her his Queen.
