He barely conceived the possibility that Mrs Simpson might become queen; he played with the idea that she might be morganatically married and reappear as Duchess of Iverness or Edinburgh; he though it most likely of all that in the course of 1937 or 1938 she would lose the king's favour and retire to enjoy her rewards elsewhere.
