Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, October 25, 1974 Windsor's 'flawed character9 illustrated Former king stingy and selfish LONDON (AP) The late Duke of Windsor, who gave up the British throne to marry an American divorcee, was stingy, selfish and unable to .understand ordinary people, says a new biography publish- ed Thursday. Frances Donaldson, who wrote the book Edward VIII, illustrates what she calls the ex-king's "flawed character" YAMAHA ORGANS Mew and Used COLLEGE MALL Phone 328-3694 with numerous incidents. She says he once failed to turn up at a ball in his honor in Australia. In Canada he kept his guests at a banquet waiting for two hours while he played squash. The duke was delighted if anybody else paid a restaurant bill, she says, although he himself was a wealthy man. She says he cut the beer money of his servants at Buckingham Palace and sparked resentment when the palace staff was used to load cases of champagne or fur- niture destined for Wallis Warfield Simpson, whom he married after his abdication in 1936. The duke died at his home- in Paris in 1972 at the age of 77. Lady Donaldson, who is the wife of a life peer, says the king ran his plane at govern- ment expense. "Yet he contin- ued to use it for the benefit of his friends and even for the importation of goods on which duty should have been she says. NOT A RADICAL The author describes as "rubbish" reports that Edward VIII was a political radical. She says that when he was governor of the Bahamas after his abdication, he refus- ed to let non-white visitors enter by the main door of the mansion.

She says the ex-king was re- garded by the government as a security risk because of his alleged carelessness with secret papers. The foreign of- fice screened all documents that went to him because of his pro-German sympathies, she adds. When a nearly defeated Britain faced a victorious Nazi Germany during 1940, the ex-king could only insist that his wife should receive royal honors, Lady Donaldson says. During the fall of France in 1940 he left his post with the military mission to the French army to follow his wife to the seaside resort, of Biarritz in southwestern France, she says. On the ex-king's love life, Lady Donaldson says Edward VIII needed to be "pas- sionately, abjectly in love" with a woman who would dominate him and, in a sense, mother him Lady Donaldson is the wife of Baron Donaldson of Kingsbridge, a farmer who has held many distinguished public posts, especially con- cerning the welfare of dis- charged prisoners. The book is published by Weidenfeld and Nicolson.
