Madonna want to take on the role of Wallis Simpson in a movie about her relationship with Prince Edward.

According to The Sun the singer sees similarities between herself and Simpson and was working on the project before her divorce halted development. It's now a project she is keen to return to.

King Edward VIII abdicated his throne in 1936 so that he could marry American divorcee Simpson making Queen Elizabeth II's father George VI king.

And Madonna has rumoured to have written to the Queen to get her permission to make a movie about Simpson and her love affair with Edward.

However Madonna's acting career has had mixed success although she received critical acclaim for her role as Eva Peron in musical Evita her performance in Swept Away was mauled.

Last year saw her make her directorial debut with Filth and Wisdom which also failed to win over the critics.
