WHEN HIS UNCLE RELEASES THE THRESHOLD TO LOVE
The life of Queen Elizabeth II, who holds the title of the world’s longest-reigning monarch, is indeed the kind you might see in movies or novels. His uncle abdicates the throne for love and his father becomes king in his place. And then, as the eldest child in the family, he ascended the throne after the death of his father. Perhaps his uncle, King VIII. If Edward hadn’t abdicated for Wallis Simpson, Queen Elizabeth and her children would be in a very different position today.
