Royal Wives at War The British royal family torn apart, a nation and empire thrown into crisis and the world plunged into war. A revealing new look at Britain’s abdication crisis of 1936 through the eyes of the two women at its very heart. In a series of dramatized monologues set in 1967, Elizabeth the Queen Mother (Emma Davies, Emmerdale) and Wallis Simpson (Gina McKee, The Forsyte Saga) look back at the dramatic events that led to the British King, Edward VIII, giving up the throne for the woman he loved. Combining drama reconstructions, archives, and a chorus of acquaintances and biographers, it tells the intimate and moving story of two strong women drawn into a bitter feud over their two weak husbands.
