Edward VIII received the title Duke of Windsor in June, 1937. That same year, he married Wallis Simpson, an American, who became Dutchess of Windsor. However, since his wife was not given the same privileges of a royal English dutchess, they were pressured to live abroad.May 22, 1953.

The strong link of friendship between King Edward and Mrs. Ernest Simpson, was evident on the King's recent vacation cruise, when the monarch and the former Baltimore society belle were snapped holding hands. The picture was made when King Edward and his party disembarked from his chartered yacht at Rab, Yugoslavia.October 20, 1936.

New York: The Duke and Duchess of Windsor who arrived on the S.S. Queen Mary looks as if they are having a little difference of opinion as the camera, last word in candidness, caught them in their limousine after disembarking. They came here from France, via England which is now in a tizzy over the approaching wedding of Princess Elizabeth, to which the Windsors (he is Lillybet's uncle Eddie) were not invited.1947.

This is interesting,not Wallis but;
This frock is among the crations (Schiaparelli) chosen by Mrs. Simpson, to be worn after her forthcoming marriage to the Duke of Windsor. Mrs. Simpson's flair for sport clothes is demonstrated in the above. It is a crepe marocain, boldly printed in blue, black and white.
