British royal family faces TV 'Nazi' exposé

The documentary is said to include unseen extracts from a private memoir in which one sister talks of her early admiration for Hitler

Published: Updated:

Nazi speculations surrounding the British royal family will allegedly be exposed in a documentary made by UK's Channel 4.

The Channel 4 documentary is set to reveal Prince Philip’s older sister’s previously unpublished memoir. Sophie, is a godmother to Prince Edward. In her memoir, she allegedly wrote of entertaining both Hitler and his henchman Hermann Goering before they rose to power.

According to the Daily Mail, she said that she and her husband were 'impressed' by Hitler and his plans for Germany's future.

It was also revealed that Sophie had joined the Nazi Women's Auxiliary and was photographed at Goering's wedding on the top table with Hitler, and her husband Prince Christoph von Hessen, who was head of the SS in the Air Ministry.

Footage that has been leaked from Buckingham Palace also shows Queen Elizabeth II performing a Nazi salute as a child, which was allegedly shot in 1933, months after Hitler came to power and six years before the start of World War II.

The documentary is said to include footage of when Prince Philip attended a family funeral in Germany in 1937 where he was confronted by crowds giving the Heil Hitler salute.
