Bringing the past to life with colour

The Windsors and the Führer


In October 1937, against the wishes of the British government, the former Edward VIII, now the Duke of Windsor, and his wife, the Duchess of Windsor, made a much publicised visit to Germany, during which he met Adolf Hitler.

Edward’s admiration for Hitler continued throughout the coming war, and beyond. apparently saying  to a friend privately: “I never thought Hitler was such a bad chap.”
