Madonna 'to play former Prince of Wales' mistress onscreen'

By Super Admin

London, February 16 (ANI): Madonna will reportedly play the role of Wallis Simpson, an affair with whom placed the former Prince of Wales at the centre of royal fury and criticism.

The Queen of Pop was said to be extremely impressed with the story of the couple that famously included the future King Edward VIII's abdication to be with his twice-divorced lady love.

Madonna had allegedly found a resembling streak between Wallis and herself, and had returned to her project plans after putting aside her divorce with director Guy Ritchie in January this year.

"Madonna sees Wallis Simpson as her next big film project. She is as passionate about it as she was about playing Eva Peron in Evita," the Sun quoted a pal as saying.

"Madonna said she is fascinated about this American commoner who refused to conform or offer explanations for her tangled love life," the pal added.

Edward and Wallis's struggle was hailed amongst the greatest stories of the 20th century.

He had said in a radio broadcast as he abdicated: "I have found it impossible to carry the heavy burden of responsibility as king without the help and support of the woman I love."

The norm-defying couple, who were later bestowed with the titles of Duke and Duchess of Windsor, went on to be together for their remaining lives in France and the US. (ANI)
