Harry is not the only real English member to give up the crown for love

But, this would not be the first time a situation of this kind occurs in the royal family, For 83 years ago the scandal after the resignation of a king for love, toured the world.

On January 20, 1936, King George V (grandfather of Queen Isabell II) died, a day later his eldest son, Eduardo VIII, rises to the throne at 42 years of age, but by that time the monarch was madly in love with a woman who was not well seen in royalty.

Like Harry, Edward VIII gave his heart to Wallis Simpson, a divorced American actress like Meghan, and after not getting her accepted into her family, the king decided to abdicate so he could marry her, who by that time was still married to her second husband.

“Everyone knows the reasons that have impelled me to renounce the throne, but I want you to know that in renouncing my rights I never forget my country and the Empire, that as prince of Wales and as king I have always served faithfully. But you must believe me when I tell you that it was impossible, sin the help and support of the woman I love, bear the heavy burden of responsibilities and fulfill my duties as king”, Eduardo announced.
