Next Episode of Spying on the Royals is
Newly available evidence blows the lid on one of Britain's most controversial espionage operations: when our spies targeted and tailed our own royal family and even tapped their phone calls.
British spies targeted Edward VIII, Wallis Simpson and George VI. New evidence reveals the extent of the surveillance, who ordered it, and the unique insights it provided into the royal scandal.
This episode reveals that, as well as British spies following Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson's every move as they travelled across the Atlantic, the Americans were also on their trail. When Britain's former King Emperor Edward VIII - uncle of Queen Elizabeth II - and his wife, the American divorcee formerly known as Wallis Simpson, arrived at an exclusive American resort for a holiday, they thought they were enjoying every intimate moment of their trip in complete privacy. This programme can reveal for the first time how they were, in fact, being tailed, their phone tapped and their room bugged.
Looks like something went completely wrong!
