When you're bored with yourself, marry and be bored with someone else.
Of course, I do have a slight advantage over the rest of you. It helps in a pinch to be able to remind your bride that you gave up a throne for her.
I wanted to be an up-to-date king. But I didn't have much time.
These works brought all these people here. Something should be done to get them at work again.
I have made this, the most serious decision of my life, only upon the single thought of what would, in the end, be best for all.
You all know the reasons which have impelled me to renounce the throne. But I want you to understand that in making up my mind I did not forget the country or the empire, which, as Prince of Wales and lately as King, I have for twenty-five years tried to serve.
