Edward VIII signed the instrument of abdication on December 10. It did not become official until December 11.

No surprise at all, she was married three times, probably one of those women that gets bored easily and always looks for the next guy.

A crowning humiliation: How Edward endured a life of torment at Wallis's hands and was even subjected to a joke coronation by her gay friend in a New York nightclub

    Wallis Simpson, who triggered Edward VIII's abdication, soon grew bored of him
    The American divorcee started outrageous relationships to denigrate the Duke
    She knew the abdication had made divorce from her new husband unthinkable
    One of her relationships was with the young Woolworth heir Jimmy Donahue
    Ignored by his wife, the disgraced Duke ended up dying in the arms of a nurse
    Extraordinary claims are made in the final extract of Andrew Morton's biography

Wallis was so not worth abdicating for, although it is better that Edward wasn't king, with his Nazi ties and all.

The sad part was that he was devoted to her and thought her "worth" abdicating for. He also apparently got some sort of thrills at her treating him badly. A biographer said that she would put signs on the bedroom door "stay out."

That relationship sounds all kinds of sick and twisted.

Did Edward VIII have a lack of respect for tradition and ceremony that irritated courtiers?

During Edward VIII's brief reign as king, only one set of stamps was issued for Great Britain.

Edward was not good king material. And it would make sense that only one set of stamps was released because he was king for less than a year.

leogirl, That is correct. It was wise that only one set of stamps of Edward VIII were issued. Whatever would have been done with an even dozen? huh huh huh

Do you believe that Edward VIII was emotionally prepared for the reactions to his decisions to abdicate and marry Wallis?

^Nope. To a certain extent, I think he may have regretted it for the rest of his days.

From what I read he was so besotted with Wallis he did not have regrets marrying her and giving up the throne for her.

There are letters of hers that show she regretted the marriage though . She never wanted marriage and never dreamt it would come to that. She was  unfaithful to him and treated him badly, even in front of other people

If Wallis had become queen I"m sure she would have been happier. She was reviled in her home town from what I've read and this would be the best revenge.

The Duke of Windsor attended the Queen Mary Memorial unveiling in 1967.
