S1E7: Royals | Charles and Diana & Ernest and Wallis Simpson

 

This week, Alicia and Stacie explore the not-so-fairytale world of English royalty, and the fated romances of two of the modern era’s Prince of Wales. First, we look at possibly the most famous trashy divorce in living memory, Prince Charles and Princess Diana. Next, we give a fresh take on the romance – or was it? – between Wallis Simpson and Edward VIII, which led him to abdicate the English throne after less than a year upon it.
