Wednesday 16 October; 2pm - 5pm
Bourne Hall, Spring Street, Ewell KT17 1UF 
This friendly talk will explore and examine the constitutional crisis that arose over the issue of the King's intended marriage to Mrs Wallis Simpson.

Edward VIII's readiness to forsake the throne in order to marry an American divorcee has become a focal point for debate, rumour, half-truth and gossip ever since, and carries issues and implications that resonate today.
