David, Prince of Wales with Wallis Simpson - Preview Image

David, the Prince of Wales, is pictured here with Wallis Simpson, a married woman with whom he fell in love.  When Wallis divorced her husband, she would be free to marry the Prince of Wales who wished to make her (an American) his Queen.

Throughout their life together, David bought Wallis many presents, including jewelry.  After her death, several of those items were sold at auction.
