THE British public had never seen its King or Queen in a photograph in anything less than a “dignified manner” until the late 1930s, a documentary reveals.

King Edward VIII stepped down from his royal duties less than a year after becoming King following the death of his father George V in January 1936, and married Wallis Simpson. The shock decision of Edward VIII to choose his relationship with Ms Simpson over the throne led to his younger brother George VI becoming King and then his daughter Princess Elizabeth taking over as monarch. Ms Simpson was twice-divorced and marrying her would have been scandalous because as king, Edward was head of the Church of England which opposed remarriage after divorce.
