Would you like to be a king? To be rich and famous? Do you want to be the centre of every crowd? Do you want everyone to be looking at you? All the time? Every day?
A king is never alone. Someone is always watching him - his detectives, photographers, a thousand people in the street. Everyone knows his face, and he must be careful what he does, because he can do nothing in secret. And what a king says today, the world hears tomorrow. So he must be careful what he says, because someone is always listening . . .
But can a king be happy? What happens if he wants something, but he cannot have it? What does he do then?
This is the true story of King Edward VIII of Great Britain; a man who fell in love, and who wanted to be happy . . .
Classics, modern fiction, non-fiction and more. Written for secondary and adult students the Oxford Bookworms Library has seven reading levels from A1-C1 of the CEFR.
All he wanted to do was to marry the woman he loved. But his country said 'No!' He was Edward VIII, King of Great Britain, King of India, King of Australia, and King of thirty-nine other countries. And he loved the wrong woman. She was beautiful and she loved him - but she was already married to another man. It was a love story that shook the world. The King had to choose: to be King, or to have love... and leave his country, never to return.
