"Wallis was a deeply insecure woman. While in high school, she pretended to like football just to get a boyfriend with a car and money (this was 1912!). Later in life, her aggressive behavior, which covered for her deep seated insecurities, would permanently estrange her from the British Royal Family, even though she married the then King Edward VIII. An interesting but unlikeable woman." Aug 27, 2014 08:57PM
