In the spring of 1936，Mrs Simpson wrote a letter to her husband．Dear Ernest, she wrote. You have been very kind to me. You are a good and strong man.But I must tell you that our marriage is finished.I am in love with the King and I want a divorce. Dont be angry.There is nothing you can do. Ill never forget you, but I have to be free.Ernest replied immediately: Your letter arrived this morning.I will do what you ask, but Ill never stop loving you. And if you need me, Ill always be here.That night the King and Wallis met at a small restaurant in Piccadilly.Edward read Ernests letter again and again.Thats wonderful news, he said. Nothing can stop us now!The next day, when Edward came down to breakfast, Gordon Lang, the Archbishop of Canterbury, was waiting for him.Good morning, Gordon, the King said. How nice to see you again. And what can I do for you?For a minute the Archbishop said nothing.
