ROYAL EXPERT LISTS SIMILARITIES BETWEEN HARRY AND EDWARD VIII
In an interview with Fox News, Mr Bullen listed some of the similarities between Harry and Edward.
Edward, who abdicated in 1936 to marry American divorcee and socialite Wallis, wrote a ghost-written autobiography after he was cut off with no source of income.
Book A King’s Story: Memoirs of the Duke of Windsor was published in 1951, and included detail about the royal split and his relationship with Wallis. Harry is currently writing his own memoirs after signing a £29million four-book mega-deal.
The first book, which is as yet untitled, will include the “definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him,” Random House announced.
Both men wed divorced American women, experienced “sibling rivalry” and gave bombshell interviews on their lives within the Royal Family.
“It’s fascinating when you draw the parallels between the two,” Mr Bullen said. Both of them married divorced American women. We all know that, but it goes much deeper than that.
“Edward and his brother also experienced their own sibling rivalry can be compared to Harry’s strained relationship with his brother, Prince William.”
