Selma Museum To Hold Event About The Duke And Duchess Of Windsor Royal Wedding

The Max G. Creech Selma Historical Museum, in anticipation of the upcoming Royal Wedding in May, will be hosting a special program on the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.

Historian Eric Jackson will share the story of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. Jackson will discuss the events that led up to this “other royal wedding” that took place 80 years ago. “It was an event that had worldwide attention and 80 years later it is still a thrilling story”, Jackson said.

The program will take place this Saturday, April 28th at 11:00am at the museum, located at 104 West Anderson Street in Uptown Selma.

“Wallis Warfield Simpson is the woman who a King gave up his throne”, says Jackson. “I think the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has seen an upsurge in anything Royal Family and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor’s story is a perfect fit”.

In addition to the program, refreshments in keeping with the royal spirit will be served. There will be a Royal Door prize given away.  The event is free and open to the public.
