Thanks to M for this document, written by Edward VIII, who is surrendering the British throne.
Edward abdicated (meaning to disown or renounce) so that he could marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson.
The document was signed by his three brothers.
Albert became King and took the name George VI. He was the father of Queen Elizabeth.
So here’s a little history lesson for you on Family Day. (Hope you have a great day).
And today’s question is, what would you give up for love?
A throne? An inheritance? Ties to your family? Or nothing at all?
It is said that Edward came to regret his decision but he and Simpson stayed married until death.
