Edward VII (1841-1910) and his grandson Edward VIII (1894-1972) were heirs to an unenviable role as kings-in-waiting. Their upbringings were dictated by the heavy weight of obligation and filled with insubstantial engagements not suited to their personalities - Edward VIII preferred dance floors, riding and women. This study provides unexpected perspectives on two public figures better known for their reigns, and is a timely reflection on the current position of Prince Charles.
