This is the story of an almost impossible choice - a choice between love and duty. A choice to be made by the King of England, Edward VIII. To choose love is to deny his birthright and throw an Empire into constitutional crisis, to choose duty is to deny himself.
This compelling and award-winning seven-part drama covers the period between 1928 and the King's abdication in December 1936. The drama unfolds as desperate attempts are made to bring the King to understand his duty and obligation - a situation which polarised the Cabinet, the Church of England and politicians across the Empire.
