So we went round again this morning with Thought for the Day. So here it is. Meanwhile, having mentioned the Abdication Speech yesterday, I have had it going through my mind all day. Great script – not great syntax – and Edward Fox did it so much better than Edward VIII. It’s all in the pauses.
But you must believe me when I tell you that I have found it impossible to carry the heavy burden of responsibility and to discharge my duties as King as I would wish to do without the help and support of the woman I love.
