Sebba tells the BBC: "We live in the year 1936, when the people were appalled by divorced women.

"you were expecting it to herald would a godless society, where everyone would get a divorce.

"But the really Big Difference is that Edward was King , and Harry is the sixth in line to The Throne , - he will never be King . "

Simpson received sack-loads of hate E-Mails, often misogynist.

she wrote in her memoirs: "There are a few expletives, for my sex that was missing from my morning tray. "

read all about it: the news of the resignation sent shock waves far beyond the UK

But some of The Strongest verbal abuse came from other women.

According to Hugo Vickers ' biography, Behind Closed doors, the Tragic, Untold Story of Wallis Simpson , The Queen once said: "The Two People that caused me The Most problems in My Life are Wallis Simpson and Hitler. "

Continuing the theme, Simpson's childhood friend, Mary Kirk, of The Royal wife cuckolded second husband, Ernest Simpson , wrote in the diary of her former love rival: "I think, as a people, think, Hitler, an evil force... full of animal cunning".

Princess Margaret, according to her uncle, the beloved as "the terrible woman".

The popular tale bears, that Edward was already told by Harry was a wimp, manipulated by an ambitious and demanding lover.

But , despite Simpson ' s as "The Woman who stole The King ", Edward Royal duties and had always found unbearably dull.

How Meghan and Harry , he dreamed of escaping To Live in Canada.

Alan "Tommy" Lascelles, his Private Secretary , said he realized after a long conversation with The Prince in the year 1927, that "words like 'decency', 'honesty', 'duty', 'would', and so on, absolutely nothing meant for Him ".

Apart from Edward times of war spell as Governor of The Bahamas , neither he nor his wife can ever work again.

Olivette Otele, Britain's first black female history professor, points out that, while Meghan is a successful actress, activist and lifestyle blogger, was that Simpson never had a job in your life.

"one was a socialite," says the University of Bristol lecturer "and The Other is an independent, successful woman, earning rely on their own income. "

Prof Otele says: "the covert and open racist attacks" against The Duchess of Sussex, who is of mixed race, are a reason as to why it is "completely nonsensical", to the Parallels between the two.
