How Queen Mother put Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson in Exile

Queen Mother called Wallis Simpson a 'naughty lady' and helped exile her and Edward VIII
Secret letters and diaries reveal how she implied that Simpson was a 'naughty lady', made sure 'no one' went to her wedding with Edward and that the pair left for France. The revelations have come to light in two-part TV programme, Queen Mary: The Reluctant Queen. After Edward's 1936 abdication, when Mrs Simpson's presence threatened to make her husband King George VI's position on the throne unstable, she wanted to 'get rid of her husband's ghosts' because 'you can't have two kings can you,' she told royal biographer Philip Ziegler.
