“I am the bastard daughter of King Edward VIII, later the Duke of Windsor. The Crown may not agree, but my life and family history is worth telling.” Born to wealth and privilege in the countryside of England, Joy Drinkwater went from plenty to poverty when her stepfather abandoned her mother and made an astonishing claim…Drinkwater’s real father was the Kind of England, Edward VIII. Although the world remembers the Duke of Windsor for abdicating his throne in 1936 to marry American divorcee, Wallis Warfield Simpson, few know the story of the Princess Who Never Was. This riveting autobiography spans nearly eighty years and recounts Joy’s quest to prove her noble heritage in a rapidly changing world that refused to grant her any privileges. The adventures, loves, losses, and dreams of this remarkable woman are certain to captivate the hearts of readers and provoke controversy. The Royal Crown of England has never been asked to acknowledge Joy’s heritage as a legitimate Princess and will probably ban the sale of this autobiography in England.
