Stuart's Daily Word Spot: Abdicate

Abdicate: verb - cast off, discard; relinquish sovereign power formally; renounce a throne, high office, or function.

‘When Edward VII decided to abdicate, in order to marry Wallis Simpson, he caused a constitutional crisis in Britain and was never fully forgiven by the rest of the royal family.’
