Members of royal families who relinquished their titles 

It is not the first time that members of royal families have relinquished their titles to live a relatively common life. King Edward VIII abdicated the throne to marry Wallis Simpson, an American socialite and divorcee, in 1937 which threatened a constitutional crisis in the United Kingdom. The couple lived together until Edward’s death in 1972 and Wallis died in 1986 at the age of 89.
