A previously unknown glimpse into the life of Wallis Simpson.

For the past 75 years, Wallis Simpson has been cast as the scarlet woman of 20th century British history – the siren who seduced Edward VIII and caused him to give up his throne. But a trove of secret letters written by Wallis suggest that the story of their infamous marriage may not be entirely factual. Wallis Simpson: The Secret Letters airs Saturday, August 8, 2015 at 4 p.m. on WXXI-TV.
