Prince Charles Ignores Family’s Pro-Nazi Past When Comparing Trump to Hitler
Royal family unquestionably pro-Hitler in the 1930s
Dec. 22, 2016
Despite Prince Charles comparing the Trump era to Nazi Germany, the British Royal Family was unquestionably pro-Hitler in the 1930s and even performed the Nazi salute.
The family’s support for Adolf Hitler was so undeniable that the royalty placed intense pressure on UK tabloid The Sun to not publish a secret 1933 film showing Queen Elizabeth practicing the Hitler Greeting.
The Sun refused and released the film last year showing the Queen being taught the salute by Prince Edward VIII, who later became king but abdicated in 1936.
Hitler once implied that Nazi Germany may have never went to war with the UK had Edward VIII stayed in power.
“I am certain through him permanent friendly relations could have been achieved,” said the Führer. “If he had stayed, everything would have been different.”
“His abdication was a severe loss for us.”
