What to watch: What happened to the Windsors?

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues and so many of us remain on lockdown, we can find ourselves bored, channel surfing while trying to find something to watch on television.

Those with a True Royalty subscription can now tune into “What happened to the Windsors?” on the streaming service. It focuses on the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and their life in exile after the former’s abdication in 1936.

How and where did they live? What did they do? Who did they associate with? All these topics are discussed in the 90 minute documentary.

What makes this programme different than the other documentaries on True Royalty? This one is presented by a family member of the Duke of Windsor – his great-nephew, Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex (the youngest child of Her Majesty The Queen).

Prince Edward the documentary that airs the former King Edward VIII’s abdication speech, explains why American Wallis Simpson couldn’t be Edward’s wife, how the family didn’t come to his wedding after the abdication, and how Wallis was never given the HRH style.

Of course, the Windsors’ relationship with Adolph Hitler is discussed, as is Edward becoming Governor General of the Bahamas. The documentary continues through the Duke of Windsors life after World War II and time in the Bahamas until his death.
