Edward VIII was destined for the throne from the time of his birth in 1894. Born to King George V and Queen Mary, the young Prince Edward was to lead a life shaped by his early years growing up with an emotionally abusive father and aloof mother. Many historians have theorised that this kind of upbringing is what led him to seek out equally dysfunctional relationships in his adult life. One of those relationships would change the course of history and rock the British monarchy to its very foundations.Although Edwards relationship with the American socialite Wallis Simpson is undoubtedly the most famous aspect of his life, there are other questions about this man who would be King that seem to go unmentioned. In this programme we examine his involvement with Nazi Party and ask whether or not Edward and his wife were willing spies or just naive puppets in Hitler's grand plan? We also look at the bitterness Edward felt for the British establishment and the jealousy that grew as he saw his younger brother take the throne and become one of Britain's best loved monarchs.
