Buckingham Palace scolded Rupert Murdoch’s top-selling Sun tabloid on Saturday for publishing a previously unknown film from 1933 that appears to show Britain’s Queen Elizabeth performing a Nazi salute as a young girl.

The black-and-white film from the year Adolf Hitler came to power purports to show future British king Edward VIII instructing his nieces, the current monarch Elizabeth, aged about six or seven at the time, and her three-year-old sister, Princess Margaret, how to perform the Nazi salute.

    The British Royalty consider themselves the “true Israel”, and their roots are German, not British, so why the shock?
    This family is not to be trusted.

    I am positive the British play no small role in Iran deal. All secret dealings the US have originate from the British. Like the non-governmental Bermuda Conference. Spielberg will make a movie exonerating them and 100 movies about a Kinder transport.

  • The person hiding behind the label Buckingham palace source uses framing and misleading language when stating that no one at that time knew how it could evolve.

    In 1933 the British royal family was being kept extremely well informed by British intelligence, and everyone knew what Hitler was shouting from the rooftops about Jews and other “sub-humans”.

    To imply today that no-one in that picture of 1933 knew anything about nazi ideology and its dangers is a blatant lie.

    As for Edward, who in the 1933 picture encourages the girls to make the nazi salute, he did not abdicate of his own will and certainly not because of the Simpson woman.

    That was a lie invented to make the reasons for his abdication acceptable to the public, as all historians well know.

    In truth he was prompted by the British government to abdicate because of his nazi sympthies.
