King George the Fifth was the father of Prince Edward. The King was a calm and emotionless person. He did not like children. He would often say that his son was very noisy. His wife agreed. She would say it was not so important whether the child was happy. It should be strong and quiet. The family lived in a huge palace. Later, Edward would tell many stories about this house. The estate was so big that people could easily get lost in it.

This story about Prince Edward and Wallis. Who were Edward and Wallis? And why was their love story so special?
