One thing I did find is that the back and forth over this generated a lot of discussion back at the time of the abdication also and I happened to find archives of the correspondences regarding the Letters Patent of King George VI in regards to his brother.


The drafting of the letters patent of 1937

The actual verbatim Letters Patent of George VI on May 27, 1937.

Thanks for that. We know exactly what happened. The powers that be were determined to deny Wallis Simpson the title of HRH. They only way they could do this was to lie about what the law said - and so they did. I have no axe to grind either way, although it does get up my nose when people lie in order to deprive someone of something they are entitled to. It wasn't right and that's it. I don't care whether the person doing the wrong happened to be the King, although, in my book, it makes it worse when people abuse a position of power in this way - and with their own brother!!!
