by Diana Mitford (Lady Mosley)

A consummate writer and intimate of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Diana Mosley was a frequent guest at their parties in Paris or at 'the Moulin' in Orsay, where they were neighbours. Written in her inimitable style - archly intelligent, witty and perceptive - Diana Mosley paints a remarkable portrait of her friend that is both extremely life-like and realistic with regards to her flaws. What was it that utterly captivated the heir to the throne and made him renounce it so that he might never be parted from her? It is this question which Diana Mosley seeks to answer and which she is perhaps better qualified to answer than anyone else, given her love of her husband Sir Oswald Mosley, Leader of the British Fascists.

A different view with new information. Quite interesting and informative on new information.
I think you will enjoy this book.
I enjoyed reading a biography written by an actual friend of the subject. I feel the content was accurate. The style was neither gossipy or sensationalistic but was an honest rendering.
It's a biased in favor of Wallis.
Includes greater understanding of why the abdication pf the King in 1936. Surprising insight by Ms Mitford.
Mr Freeman
Worth a read for a more balanced view. Right or wrong does not matter it seems love was what mattered. Who are we to judge....
I found this to be very "floral" in descriptive nature. I expect the author to walk around looking like Wallis in this picture and a long-stemmed cigarette holder waving about in her hand. Her bias is over the top. It never occurrs to Diana that her background could seriously color her perception of her "dear" friends to the point of totally ignoring some of their very shallow behaviors. I really wish I could return my Kindle copy for another version in the library.
I am still waiting for this book to be sent.
Written by a personal friend of the Duchess

good book, but I still get the thought that the Duchess was a self centered spoiled party lady

how many jewels does it take to make one happy???
