A new biography from esteemed royal historian and Cambridge lecturer, Ted Powell.
With the Royal Wedding offering a gem of a PR opportunity for this book’s author, royal historian Ted Powell, it was all systems go from the moment the campaign began. In the first two weeks we were delighted to secure
the brilliant Ted Powell coverage across the Guardian, Metro, Forbes, Instyle, BBC Radio 2’s live Royal Wedding Special with Chris Evans and a televised debate broadcast on London Live (to name a few!)!
With that exciting start, we can’t wait to see what the rest of the campaign has in store.
A compelling new book, it challenges us to turn our perceptions of the infamous King Edward VIII on their heads. Ted Powell argues that Edward was a peace-loving, progressive prince who had the capacity to modernise the
monarchy beyond anything we’ve seen from a reigning monarch if he had not abdicated.
King Edward VIII is full of stories about surfing trips, cowboy ranches, all-night jazz parties and strings of clandestine affairs – but it is also an intellectual, fundamental reassessment of the role America played in the abdication of Edward VIII.
We can’t wait to share more of Ted’s historical expertise in the media!
King Edward VIII: An American Life (published by Oxford University Press) is published on 23 August 2018 – please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
