I spent some time at the Greenbrier, and they have some royal photos on the walls. I took snapshots with my phone, so they aren’t great quality, but I thought you might be interested. There is only one that I think I have seen before. I put them on a flickr page. It isn’t a public page, but I think you can get there with the url. If not, let me know a working email and I can send you a link. http://www.flickr.com/photos/102914349@N08/ Enjoy!
Unfortunately I can’t see them! I think I have to be your friend on Flickr:
Please add me as a friend so I can see the photos! :)
Certain PBS markets (unfortunately mine is not included) will be airing a documentary on Edward VIII and George VI tomorrow at 10pm and Sunday at 7pm.
Check your local listings! It’s called “Edward and George, Two Brothers, One Throne” and I haven’t seen it.
Thanks to Marcia from TheRoyalFanzine for the tip!

I must advise writing your brother instead of the telephone. I think with a slow brain such as his that he doesn’t take in ideas as quickly as you speak.
Wallis writing to David, February 1937
Lot of shade getting thrown on poor Bertie. See, if I was making this kind of dig I would say call him instead of writing him because he’s too dumb to read, but Wallis’s comment is probably more insulting.
7pm EST: Wallis and Edward Chat. Everyone from last time will be messaged with info and there will also be a public link with a trivia question password to ward off scammers and trolls. If you don’t know the answer you can PM me to get in anyway.
9pm EST: The Palace Episode 3 Liveblog

Day Seven: Post your all time favorite photo of your OTP together.
There are so many great photos of Wallis and David together. I’m happy that they’re one of the only royal couples of that era who were willing to show affection and emotion in public. This is my favorite photo because of how flirty Wallis looks. The way she’s looking at her husband is just adorable. David’s looking at the camera all smarmy too! I love both their outfits and general expressions here as well.
Day Six: Post the photo of your OTP where both parties look the most attractive.
I think they both look pretty nice here. David looks like an old-timey movie gangster with that carnation in his button-hole. Also, I suspect he is whispering something dirty into Wallis’s ear.
Day Five: Post the most feels inducing photo of your OTP.
This picture is definitely my choice! Look how they’re smiling, and how close they are. This is a couple who’ve been together almost half their lives, and everyone wanted their marriage to fail. Yet here they are, more happy and in-love than ever. They grew old together. Very sweet and heart-warming, I think.
Day Four: Post your best dressed photo of your OTP together.
Three words: matching plaid suits. Your fav would never.
Day Three: Post your favorite adult photos of each member of your OTP separately
Day Two: Post your favorite childhood photos of both members of your OTP.
I think both of them were about sixteen here. I just love the outfits. Wallis is working her monocle and David is wearing some horrible costume his parents made him put on and he does not look happy about it.
I’m thinking of doing a Wallis and David chat.
Like all Wallis and David, all the time. No I don’t mean a regular thing just one chat when all of us who are interested can get together. I know most everyone in the fandom who would be interested and would send out messages to most of them, but I’d like to hear from people who would like to attend to find out if there is anyone who would like to do this. Please message me or reblog this so I know! If you’re an anon you can message me anon. I accept anons.
Get in loser; we’re going shopping!
