Theatre review: You, too, might fall for the queen of tarts

The fasination in watching HRH, Snoo Wilson's new play about the dubious activities of Edward and Mrs Simpson during their wartime spell in the Bahamas, lies in the constant shifts in our sympathies. We succumb to the batty charm of an upper- class twit and his savvy American beauty only to recoil from the ghastliness of what they have to say. We're glamoured by the insider gossip (being king, Edward tells us, is a "bloody boring job"), titillated by details of Wallis' sexual adventures, and then chilled by the selfishness, snobbishness and anti-semitism (not to mention the friendship with Hitler). It's love 'em and loathe 'em.
