Love’s Glittering Expression Adrian Dickens returns to the Club to present another fascinating talk on Prince Edward and Wallis Simpson, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. In 2013, Adrian went to Paris seeking insight into the abdication of King Edward VII and the purpose of the Duke and Duchess’ legendary art and jewellery collection.
