Royal Wives at War: Elizabeth vs Mrs Simpson

About the Show

A family torn apart, a country thrown into crisis and the world plunged into war. Eighty years after the abdication crisis, this drama-enriched documentary has, at its heart, the story of a family affair that changed the course of world events. With A-list actresses in the title roles, and contributions from leading royal commentators, this thrilling drama-documentary uses the original words of the two women at the centre of the battle: Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, the future Queen and later Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, and Wallis Simpson, the future Duchess of Windsor.
