So now he was king, but no one could persuade him to give up Wallis. Not even Prime Minister[首相] Stanley Baldwin who spoke for the nation when he said Britain did not want an American divorcee[离婚妇女] for a queen. Ministerial car shuttled[穿梭] between Westminster and Buckingham Palace but the king could not be budged[改变主意]. He was forced to abdicate[退位] and all over the country flags flew at half-mast[半旗].

In the summer of 1937 there was a quiet wedding in France. The couple looked a bit nervous, especially the groom[新郎], but only a year before he’d been a king. Now he and his wife would be called the Duke[公爵] and Duchess[公爵夫人] of Windsor.
