BROTHER AGAINST BROTHER

January 1936 had abdicated in December. I attended the coronation of his brother in Westminster Abbey. How beautiful that medieval ceremony was! I watched for the oft described moment when the Queen is crowned and the peeresses put their coronets on their own heads, a thousand white arms rising at a single instant. I was not disappointed in that nor in the summons to the people, made to the four points of the compass, by the Archbishop.
The Duke and Duchess of Windsor came to live in France after their wedding and rented a house in Versailles. They invited us there. We were eager to meet the heroine of this great love story. Seeing her helped us a great deal to understand it. She had so much vitality that it seemed natural to be attracted to her. The etiquette of royalty was maintained. Major Metcalfe assembled the guests in the drawing-room, then the Duke and Duchess descended the stairs and made the rounds of those present. The Duke wore a kilt of the Stuart tartan with sporran and with a silver dagger in his sock. In this costume he had great charm and appeared extraordinarily young. At table I was seated next to the Duchess; the Duke looked at her constantly. They seemed a much enamoured pair. He talked to me about a book he had admired a great deal; it was Guedalla's book on Wellington.
`But I have read very little,' he said modestly, `and the principal reason is that we were taught in rooms at Windsor that were so cold we had just enough strength to keep ourselves warm ... They tell me that you have written a book about my grandfather; I should like very much to read it.'
Then he described, without bitterness, the groups that had opposed him; he gave the impression of having wanted to be King of the little people as opposed to an aristocratic clique.
After that we saw the Windsors often. They invited us to spend Christmas of 1938 at their house at Cap d'Antibes and gave us a real English Christmas dinner to which the Duchess added smoked turkey from Virginia. In Paris they took us to a concert by Stokowski, the Duke much embarrassed because he had orchestra stalls and had never been in the theatre before except in a royal box. They came a number of times to have dinner with us, and to please the Duke I invited the politicians whom he wished to meet, among others Monsieur Hanotaux who had been Minister of Foreign Affairs during the reign of his great
