Long Live Love! 愛情萬歲！
In 1970, two years before his death, Edward said:
There are some people who think that I was wrong to give away my crown. But they don't understand true love.
When I was young，I lived in Buckingham Palace. I could have anything that I wanted. But I wasn't happy be-cause my heart was empty.
Then I met Wallis and everything changed. For half of my life I have lived here with the most beautiful woman in the world. And she is everything to me.
When I sit in my garden with the Duchess by my side, I sometimes think about my early life. I remember the days alone in my bedroom. I remember the teacher who hit me with a stick. I remember the war and my travels around the world. And then I remember the crowds of people below my window，who shouted: "Long live love!"
On my last night in London I spoke with Winston Churchill. In the middle of our conversation he said: "I think, Sir, that the best things in life are free." I have nev-er forgotten those words. And now, many years later, I un-derstand what they mean. You cannot buy happiness. And you cannot buy love.
To be happy deep inside your heart is the most wonderful thing in the world. I have been a lucky man. And so I say：
"Thank God for Wallis，and LONG LIVE LOVE!"
