The things we do for love.....

The 10th of December marked 70 years since Edward VIII abdicated from the British throne in order to be with the woman he loved.

It is an event and romance in history that has long fascinated me and I think I have read most books printed on the subject. I think what really got me interested in the subject of Wallis Simpson was the sight of her jewels when they went to auction....the Cartier panther items particularly.

The fascination with this pair resulted in my first pair of cats being called Edward and Mrs Simpson!
