Slack blogger, but I do give good comment.
Very fine choice. Have you seen the picture of him and his wife jumping - they're both mid air and he's in his socks.
Thanks for your visit Quink.I passed on the jump pic because I wanted the Duke to look elegant, but the jump photo shows the 2 of them were good sports."Hustler of Culture - Philippe Halsman's Jump BookA portrait photographer for Life magazine in the 1950s, Halsman asked many of his subjects to jump for his camera. Here are shots of 191 celebrities in the ..."I know Halsman got Tallulah Bankhead and Monroe to jump.
My grandmother had a huge crush on Edward VIII. Bless her.
Any guy who'd give up what he gave up for the love of a woman is special.

I think the fact that he gave up the Crown for love says alot about... well, everything really.Although, I am a hopeless romantic.
I think it was rather romantic too (the swanky attire also). Although, you really would want to get away from the royal life wouldn't you? To avoid going any nuttier than ordinary life already encourages!
We're going to disagree here. He was a right infantile little tantrum throwing twit. Wallis wouldn't have lasted two weeks with the media these days. Their pictures were airbrushed and they barred for life the one photographer who published their pics, warts (Wallis) and all.It's a shame that being King through a war killed George Vl.
By the way, I have the fair Isle pattern for that jumper he's wearing.
RH, you should be on TV.I'm laughing like a madwoman.I love bloggers.JT is now knitting I presume ?
David (as he was known to intinates) was more of a political animal than other monarchs. He supported British Facist Leader Oswald Mosley and espressed some admiration for the pre-war achievements of Herr Hitler. Wallis was the 1930s answer to Yoko Ono.
Those shoes with those smarty tailored strides.What a stylemeister!
Eddie 8 was way ahead of his time in the triumph of style over substance department at least.
Just to add a bit more history here, old Teddy was shipped out to the Bahamas at the start of the war (if memory serves) after he'd reached a deal with Adolf that, should the Germans win, he'd retain his post as King. Apparently the government thought it best if he was out of earshot. Now we know where Prince Harry gets his 'romantic' streak from. You've got to love the Sax Coburgs.
