Keep right all the way, till you come to a tumbledown old white gate on the left. Then you go up a bumpy road full of holes, and eventually reach an even more tumbledown old house, and a tumbledown little person waiting on the doorstep- which will be ME!!!

vintage-royalty:

Wallis at David’s funeral. Hubert de Givenchy made her outfit for her in a day so she’d have something to wear. Wallis was very grateful for his efforts though she wasn’t very picky:

 ”Givenchy was so kind; he came over immediately to prepare what I needed to wear. And then, too, I thought, But I’m not going to a ball; I’m going to my husband’s funeral; I’ll wear anything. I knew I would never care about clothes again, or anything else for that matter.”

 The pearls were a peace offering she’d been left in Queen Mary’s will, though the two women never met.
