ROYAL FLUKES






Reading Edward VIII:  The Uncrowned King by Piers Brendon, I am amazed by the similarity between the Duke of Windsor and Prince Albert II of Monaco.

This paragraph says it all:

"Edward lacked moral and mental faculties to set against his 'exceptionally strong primitive passions.'  Moreover he had no aesthetic or spiritual capacities.  Like the child in the fairy story, he was 'given everything in the world, but they forgot the soul.'"
