How Queen Mother put Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson in Exile: Senior royal called American divorcee a 'naughty lady' as she ensured the Royal Family shunned their wedding

    Secret  letters and diaries reveal how she implied Simpson was a 'naughty lady'
    Queen Mother also wanted to 'get rid of her husband's ghosts' after he became King following 1936 abdication of Edward
    Wanted to ensure that 'no one' attended Edward's wedding - fewer than 20 went

The Queen Mother called Wallis Simpson a 'naughty lady' and helped to ensure that the Royal Family shunned her wedding to Edward VIII and that the pair were exiled to Paris, secret letters and diaries reveal.   

The revelations, which have come from a two-part TV programme, Queen Mum: The Reluctant Queen, help to create a picture of a woman who was more than a dutiful wife. 

Instead, as reported by the Sunday Express, the letters indicate a cunning and astute monarch who at first wanted to tread carefully in the 1930s Wallis Simpson affair.

[...]

Royal biographer Philip Ziegler told the programme that, after asking her why she had been so forceful in keeping Edward and Mrs Simpson out of Britain, she replied 'you can't have two kings can you?'

The pair remained married until Edward's death in 1972, and lived in France for much of their life together. 

The Queen Mum: The Reluctant Queen, airs on Channel 5 on Saturday at 9pm.

Very ironic considering the Queen Mum lent a safe house to C and C to cheat on their spouses. Hypocrisy 101.

Some sources say the Queen Mum was disappointed Prince Edward did not choose HER. ANd is spiteful over that.

George VI had morals, he ditched his married mistress before even thinking of courting Lady Elizabeth. He is nothing like Charles. too bad he did not live long enough to try to keep Charles on the straight and narrow, Mountbatten encouraged Charles to have mistresses and his grandmother made him feel he could do no wrong.

Queen Elizabeth, the QM favoured Prince Charles from her other grandchildren.

Undoubtedly George VI was insecure and introverted but he certainly had the qualities for a King during WWII.

^^ His morals weren't that great either as he had a married mistress. But yeah good he ditched her before going after Elizabeth.

I just don't understand why it was so "normal" passing around married spouses in their circles.

Unlike Charles he dropped the married mistress. HE did not bring baggage into his marriage.

I don't think passing around married spouses is normal it is gross.
