Edward VII died in May 1910. I expect you meant Edward VIII.

I recently read Princes At War by Deborah Cadbury (ISBN 978-1408845080), which was based on research including access to George VI's war diary. It was a good read: I recommend it to anyone who is interested in this stuff.

Edward VIII's pro-Nazism was not confined to sentiments and did not end when the war started. He did things that they could have had him shot for, including disclosing war plans to the enemy, deserting his post, collaboration, and conspiracy to defect. Everything that we have darkly suspected since the Seventies is true, and more.
