I know the world of VBCW is kept deliberately vague once the war actually breaks out, to give gamers maximum freedom in developing their forces' backstory and whatnot, and the events leading up to the outbreak of war are pretty well recorded in the Source Book.

However, there's one thing I can't seem to find mention of:

When does Edward actually marry Wallis Simpson? In our timeline it wasn't until June 1937, as her divorce didn't become final until that May.

In the VBCW timeline, Edward's aborted coronation and attempted assassination take place in May – are they already married by this point, or do they get married after fleeing to Worcestershire?

Just wondering.

Is she mentioned anywhere in fluff?

I guess I assumed she thought things got too hot to handle and bowed out.

Not that I actually play…

In the source book it states that Edward and Wallace flee to Worcestershire after the attempt on his life, and there are several references later on to "his marriage" rather than "his proposed marriage", but I can't find any mention of the wedding itself.

19th May, 1937: it's a family tradition.

it's a family tradition.

Royal family or yours?
