Wallis Simpson was, depending on your view ofhistory, either the woman who destroyed the monarch or who saved the monarchy by enticing the pro-Nazi Edward VII away from the throne. Anne Sebba uncovers previously secret letters that throw surprising new light on the Duchess of Windsor, who famously said that a woman could never be to rich or too thin. She talks to Rowena Danziger.
 
Presented with UNSW.
