A letter from the exiled Edward VIII finally lifts the lid on the bitter rancour within the Royal family over his marriage to American divorcee Wallis Simpson.<br />
<br />
A candid letter revealing the Royal Family's bitter resentment towards Edward VIII following his controversial abdication has come to light. <br />
<br />
The letter from Edward to press baron Lord Beaverbrook was penned in 1939, less than three years after he rocked the nation by stepping down as King.<br />
 <br />
The three-page letter reveals he was warned to stay away from England while his brother Albert established himself as the new King. <br />
<br />
The letter was part of Lord Beaverbrook's archive which was sold following his death in 1964, and is now being sold by for £8,000.
