The Nazis’ Choice for King and Queen

1-King-Edward-VIII-and-Wallis-Simpson

A wedding photo of the former King Edward VIII and divorcée Mrs Wallis Simpson, now the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, on  the 3rd of June 1937.

Had the Germans won the second World War, Edward would have almost certainly been installed as a puppet king, and Wallis, enthusiastically pro-Hitler, would have been his Queen.
