The controversial "nazi salute" of Elizabeth II

The images recorded in the early 30, the future King â€" so with 6 or 7 years of age â€" comes close to the Queen Mother, Princess Margaret and uncle-the future Edward VII, which seems to encourage the controversial gesture.

Stig Abell, responsible editorial of The Sun, justifies the "purist" of the newspaper, saying that "it is the national interest and the public to reveal a document with historical and cultural significance".

The ties between Edward VIII and the nazi regime always fed speculation in the United Kingdom. In 1937, a year after relinquishing the Crown in order to marry Wallis Simpson, an American divorcee, the ex-monarch met with Hitler in Germany.

But the role and position of the future Queen Elizabeth II during World War II, serving in particular behind the wheel of an ambulance, has never been the subject of debate. And the affection of a large number of Britons to the Queen Mother and King George VI is due to the decision not to come out of London during the German bombing of 1940.

William Shawcross, official biographer of mother of Isabel II, explains that he spent "six years researching in the actual files, and in all the documents and letters written in 20 years", 30 and 40, there is not the slightest indication that he ever wrote or had any kind of pro-Nazi sentiment ".

The Royal House is now trying to determine how the video, which remained away from the public eye for more than 80 years, fell into the hands of The Sun.
