Proposals: Over lunch at Claridges, Esmond Harmsworth of the Daily Mail suggested the Morganatic proposal to Mrs. Simpson. This would mean she could not take her husband's rank and her children would be without rights of succession. The King favoured the proposal because Mrs. Simpson liked it, but Baldwin was furious when told of the idea.

Starring: Cynthia Harris, Edward Fox.
