Summary, etc.:
The complex and contradictory lives of the Windsors following Edward's abdication of the British throne in 1936. Shut out by the royal family, the couple was forced into exile--but a glamorous one in which they flitted from sumptuously appointed mansions in the south of France to luxurious residences in Palm Beach. They were spoiled, selfish people, obsessed with their image, reveling in adulterous affairs, and financially exploiting their position in a glittering world riddled with treachery and betrayal.
