The phenomenon of Wallis Simpson
Posted on May 15 2022
On December 10, 1936, Edward VIII uttered the phrase: "I have found it impossible to fulfill the duties of the king without the help and support of the woman I love." Then he resigned all royal responsibilities and left for France to marry the love of his life - Wallis Simpson, American. They met when she was already 35 years old. Wallis was married to Mr. Simpson and was already part of high society. Photographer Cecil Bitton described her as an unfashionably dressed, bony woman in sapphire velvet. A year later, he will change his mind about Wallis and call her bright, witty, and chic.
From now on, her image was carefully thought out: fitted silhouettes, elegant jackets, and a lot of jewelry that Edward would constantly present her with. A book could be written about Wallis' jewelry wardrobe. Cartier brooches, Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry - Simpson skillfully matched necklaces and earrings and neglected rings. She always hid her thin fingers in the photo and preferred not to focus on them.
