The biggest scandal of the years leading up to WWII was the abdication of the throne of England by Edward to marry an American named Wallace Simpson. The love story captured the hearts of the world and their every move was talked about, even despite their desire for privacy. Here the couple is spotted in 1938, two years after the scandal broke, vacationing in Paris. Wallace Simpson leads Edward in what can only be described as a paparazzi style photo, issued by Acme and stamped on the back by a rare Paris photographer!
