In my professional opinion it is not surprising that Edward VIII was monitored by his government during the time he was contemplating abdication as it was a sensitive and unstable time for him and the country
(PRWEB UK) 24 May 2013
According to The Telegraph report by Tom Whitehead: Intelligence files: Edward VIII bugged by own government as he prepared to abdicate, intelligence files kept secret for almost 80 years reveal that phone calls from Buckingham Palace and Fort Belvedere were monitored while he decided whether to give up the throne for Wallis Simpson or not.
The Telegraph report goes on to say that Gill Bennett, the former official historian at the Foreign Office who reviewed the files for release, said they were kept secret because they were regarded as "too difficult" to know what to do with. Released through the National Archives on 23 May 2013, the papers give a good indication of what happened during the days before the abdication. The GPO is asked in a “most secret” letter from the Home Office to intercept telephone conversations between Fort Belvedere and Buckingham Palace.
