To celebrate the release of Madonna’s new film W.E., which stars Abbie Cornish, Andrea Riseborough and James D’Arcy and hits cinemas on January 20th, QueensOfVintage are giving one reader the chance to win an afternoon tea for two at Kensington Palace courtesy of Virgin Experience Days.

Madonna’s W.E. is a beautifully crafted, passionate tale about the search for true love in the modern world, viewed through the prism of one of history’s most fabled romances.  The year is 1998, and Manhattan is abuzz with anticipation about the upcoming auction of the estate of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.  But the auction is far more than a diversion for Wally Winthrop (Abbie Cornish), a transplanted Southerner trapped in an unhappy and abusive marriage.

Transfixed by the exquisite artifacts of the Windsors’ lives, Wally becomes obsessed with the love story of Wallis Simpson (Andrea Riseborough), the chic, charismatic American who captured the heart of King Edward VIII (James D’Arcy).   As she learns more about the sacrifices Wallis made in choosing to be with Edward, Wally finds the courage to follow her own heart and create her own happiness.

To be in with a chance of winning, simply answer the question below and email the answer to quoting ‘Wallis’ in the subject line.

Where did Wallis and Edward flee to once their relationship became public knowledge?

a)    Mexico
b)    South of France
c)    South America
