The Duke and Duchess of Windsor

According to Christopher Wilson's book, "Dancing with the Devil, The Windsors and Jimmy Donahue", Oxford students linked Prince Edward romantically with his tutor Henry Peter Hansel.

By 1935, Prince Edward was friends with Wallis Simpson.

The Duke allegedly allowed the Duchess to play dominatrix.

Papers released by the Public Records Office reveal that in 1935 Wallis Simpson was also having a relationship with a car salesman called Guy Trundle.

Prince Edward became King of England in 1936 but then abdicated because of his love for Wallis Simpson.

According to Wilson, Wallis Simpson, the Duchess of Windsor, was a man.

Dr John Randall, consultant psychiatrist at the Charing Cross hospital in London, reportedly told Michael Bloch, the Duchess’s bigrapher, that Wallis Simpson had androgen insensitivity syndrome, a hormonal irregularity that causes a genetically male body to develop as a woman, although without fully developed sex organs.

Wilson writes about the Duchess, the Duke and their relationship with the Woolworth heir Jimmy Donahue, "a gay playboy twenty years her junior." Donahue reportedly helped the Windsors financially.

Donahue was ‘a school dropout who enjoyed playing expensive practical jokes’, including dressing as a nun.

Donahue was an ‘intimate’ friend of Francis Spellman, New York's allegedly gay Cardinal Archbishop.

According to Charles Higham’s book "Trading With The Enemy": In the early stages of World War II, the Duke of Windsor had a secret meeting in the Hotel Meurice in Paris with Rudolf Hess, Martin Bormann and Errol Flynn. The Duke of Windsor reportedly promised to help Hess contact the Duke of Hamilton, which "finally led to Hess’s dramatic landing on the Hamilton Estate in 1941."
