delivered 12 December 1936. A few hours ago I discharged my last duty as King and Emperor, and now that I have been succeeded by my brother, the Duke of York, my first words must be to declare my allegiance to him. This I do with all my heart. You all know the reasons which have - have impelled me to renounce the throne. But I want you to understand that in making up my mind I did not forget the country or the empire, which, as Prince of Wales, and lately as King, I have for 25 years tried to serve

On December 10, 1936, King Edward VIII submitted his abdication and it was endorsed by Parliament the next day. He thus became the only British monarch ever to resign voluntarily. The speech below is from December 11th, when Edward publicly announced his decision via radio to a worldwide audience. His younger brother, George VI, took the throne and immediately gave Edward the title, Duke of Windsor. The Duke and Simpson were married in France on June 3, 1937 and lived in Paris.

Having relinquished the title of King, Edward reverted temporarily to the title of 'Prince', hence Sir John Reith's introduction. In a speech the following day, his brother, King George VI, announced that the title Duke of Windsor would be conferred upon the prince. The sharp bump that can be heard at the beginning of this announcement led to some speculation that, on leaving the room, Sir John Reith had slammed the door in disgust. The noise actually occurred when the former monarch banged his leg against the table as he took his position
