Who was the real Wallis Simpson? Anna Pasternak’s startling and intimate new book Untitled is the first positive biography of Wallis, looking deep into the life and legacy of one of the most misjudged women in British royal history. She shows Wallis to be a warm, loyal and intelligent woman, adored by her friends but written off by cunning Establishment men who sought to diminish her and ruin her reputation. Far from being the villain of Edward’s abdication she was in fact the victim. Using testimony from her inner circle of friends, Anna presents the real Wallis, drawing parallels with the recent arrival of another American divorcee in the Royal Family. Actor Geoffrey Streatfeild (RSC, National Theatre) will read from Wallis and Edward’s letters.
