Were there any financial considerations for a possible child? A
non-HRH Duke of Windsor peeling potatoes at the local diner might have
been awkward. A down-on-his luck duke might have posed a political
problem as the senior male in the dynasty.
I believe Edward VIII was compensated for private property his father had
left him that was intended to pass with the Crown (e.g. he sold
Sandringham to his brother).
The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.
