Of the then Prince of Wales, later to be Edward VIII (and shortly thereafter Duke of Windsor and married in 1937 to Wallis Simpson) Cheiro* wrote in 1928:
"It is within the bounds of possibility... that he will in the end fall victim to a devastating love affair. If he does, I predict that the Prince will give up everything, even the chance of being crowned, rather than lose the object of his affection."
