The footage is from around 1933 and shows the family at play in the garden.



The black and white footage, which lasts about 17 seconds, shows the Queen playing with a dog on the lawn in the gardens of Balmoral, the Sun says.
The Queen Mother then raises her arm in the style of a Nazi salute and, after glancing towards her mother, the Queen mimics the gesture. Prince Edward, the future Edward VIII, is also seen raising his arm.
The footage is thought to have been shot in 1933 or 1934, when Hitler was rising to prominence as Fuhrer in Germany but the circumstances in which it was shot are unclear.


Although disapointed the footage has been released the Palace say it's all a misunderstanding and they were just fooling around.

A Palace source said: "Most people will see these pictures in their proper context and time. This is a family playing and momentarily referencing a gesture many would have seen from contemporary news reels.
"No-one at that time had any sense how it would evolve. To imply anything else is misleading and dishonest."

Kinda makes sense of how we won the war but Germany rules Europe.
Once a Saxe Coburg always a Saxe Coburg.

Nobody at the time thought giving a Nazi salute was a bad thing to do, so there was nothing wrong with doing it.
At approximately the same period, my father was given a copy of Kipling (a school prize) with a swastika on the cover. That wasn't because the school was endorsing everything the Nazi's later came to stand for. It was because the swastika had no bad significance at the time.

You may be right but the conspiracy part of me says they're getting ready for when cousin Adolf comes to stay , flexing their salute mussels , but the rational side agrees with you.

I'm not a Monarchist so prefer conspiracy theory

I'm no fan of a constitutional monarchy system of govenment, but as others have said, the Nazi salute did not equate to genocide at the time the film was made so really it is a non-story as far as I see it.
Now, if the film had been made in say 1945 it would be completely different.

How many kids have done that?

Most of the world unsurprisingly never knew the plans of Nazism in 1933, which was 6 years before WWII.

Edward VIII is known to have been slightly on board Nazism at it's commencement due to despising Communism in Russia that had caused the demise of the Russian aspect of his family. That and Simpson fueled Archbishop Lang's behind the scenes decision for his abdication.

Dressing up as or faking salutes doesn't make a person a nazi, though distasteful, back then it was less of an issue due to the political climate and the fact that nazism didn't reveal it's plans to the world before commencing them.

nypost.com...


Like many of his class, Edward was instinctively sympathetic to Hitler’s far-right regime. During the 1920s he had seen the collapse of Weimar Germany, the mass unemployment, crippling inflation and virtual civil war between left and right and believed that a strong leader could restore stability and prosperity.

Moreover the duke loathed Bolshevik Russia and, until his dying day, never forgave or forgot how the Communists ordered the murder of his godfather Tsar Nicholas II and family in 1918. It shaped his political thinking, believing that a strong Germany would act as a bulwark against a resurgent Russia, hoping that one day the two countries would slug it out between themselves while Britain enjoyed the fruits of Empire.

I also had a Kipling book with a swastika on the front cover, Inside as a book mark there was a piece of paper with morse code on it and the translation "Fox comprimised. Advise urgently"

yeah but when you do the nazi salute in front of your all seeing eye pyramid, then we know you're going to be a contender.

I also used to run around patting my hand over my mouth yelling "woowoowooowoo" so I was an Indian. Back before it was politically incorrect to be a child. I held shiny toy pistols and went "pshew pshew!!" - I was different, get off my case - and not once did I commit genocide or steal your buffalo.

Though the buffalo is sounding pretty damn tasty right now..

Imagine if the heir to the throne today were an ardent ISIS supporter. The 30's were indeed a very strange time.

Edward was forced behind the scenes to abdicate in 1936, and Nazism wasn't behaving as ISIS publicly in 1933.

Churchill and the Archbishop of Canterbury were against his connections to Nazism and to his choice of spouse.

It beats me why that section of film was kept at all. Put it this way, if the royal family didn't have their royal ears to the ground at the time, they sure as hell did know a short time later, and in any case, why the salute?...and they are all at it.

Well one good reason might just be that the Nazis came to power in January 1933, and by the end of the year had taken over the country...no wonder there was a lot of saluting going on. it's a fecking disgrace!
Just seeing that has put me right off the elders of the royal family

The "Nazi" Salute used to just be a salute; just like the swastika never used to have a bad connotation.

Well look out it seems Bill Clinton, and who would have guessed Ronald McDonald are Nazi's...





Seems when things can be taken out of context we get what this video is trying to claim.
