As Wallis proceeds with her divorce, away from London, there is increasing concern in official circles as to what the future may hold. The American press are having a field day with the affair but the British press has remained silent. Of greater concern to the Prime Minister is the possibility of a constitutional crisis should the King persist with his intention to marry Wallis. The British media, led by the influential press baron Lord Beaverbrook, agree to cover the divorce in as low key a way as possible. The Prime Minister, who very much likes and supports the new King, expresses his concern to him but the King insists he has the right to have a friend. Mrs. Simpson obtains an interim divorce decree, to be made final in six months time.
