British Royals Cry Foul Because Newly-Released Video Shows Them As Nazi Sympathizers
Mainstream media reports are brushing off a newly-discovered home video shot in 1933 showing Queen Elizabeth and her younger sister giving the Nazi salute on cue from the Queen's mother and her uncle, the future King Edward VIII, a renowned Nazi sympathizer who abdicated the crown in 1936 so he could marry Wallis Simpson, an American who had previously been married and divorced. The Sun newspaper is being excoriated for making the video public, which appears may have been inadvertently released to documentary makers by the royal family last year. The House of Windsor as it is known is actually of German ancestry like most of the other royal families of Europe.
