This Baltimore woman, born in 1896 into relative obscurity, somehow, after she married Edward VIII and became Duchess of Windsor, launched herself as one of the world’s best dressed women who entertained in the most elegant homes fit for a King – or rather an ex-King. Anne will tell the story of how, in the context of the 1930’s, this woman was unacceptable as Queen of England and of the Empire. We will explore who this woman was and what was the power she had over King Ed-ward Vlll. Seventy five years since the Abdication in 1936, it is now time to reassess ‘That Woman’.Anne Sebba is a historian and author. Her biography, Wallis Simpson, published as That Woman, an international bestseller, proved that the world is full of people dying to know what goes on in other people’s bedrooms.
