With the chances of getting the government's support for his marriage to Wallis ever diminishing, the King attempts to get their support for a morganatic marriage. Used in some countries when royalty marries a commoner, a morganatic marriage results in the sovereign's wife not becoming Queen and does not allow the children to inherit the throne. There is no provision in British law for this type of marriage and there is no support, either from the government or the Opposition, to enact the necessary legislation. Wallis for her part simply can't understand why the King just doesn't order everyone to accept their situation. Wallis and the King agree that she should go to France for the time being.
