Edward & George: Two Brothers, One Throne

EDWARD & GEORGE: TWO BROTHERS, ONE THRONE tells the remarkable story of two brothers and two women at the heart of an infamous episode in British history. While the story of Edward and Wallis is fairly well known, the relationship between Edward and George has seldom been explored. The abdication marked the end of the fraternal friendship between the two - a friendship that would never be repaired. Using archival footage along with new interviews (including ones with Royal biographer Hugo Vickers and the Countess Mountbatten of Burma), EDWARD & GEORGE examines how, despite their differences, the brothers looked for similar qualities in the women they loved. These quests changed their relationship from one of love and loyalty to suspicion and betrayal.
