Buckingham Palace anger over Queen 'Nazi salute' footage [source]

The House of Windsor is merely a renaming of the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (a German House) that happened some 15 years before during WW1. The House found itself inside the British royal family through the famous Prince Albert, who married Queen Victoria around 100 years before the footage. Prince Albert was the great-grandfather of Edward VIII (although neither Edward nor his father George V were born when Albert died), so the ties with Germany were not distant.

While the article is right in saying that there is nothing wrong with this footage and it would probably have been a common scene back then, it is not surprising that one of the people (Edward VIII) is thought to have really been a sympathiser with the Nazis (as you posted in the comments section ;) ).

they are cousins ...
The Royal House changed the name not to sound too German...

However one must note that Hitler never considered England and the Brits as his enemies... but just opponents.
He even asked them to join him in the fight against the Red army.
A proposal made again after Hitler's ''death'' (read escape to Argentina)

However the attitude obviously changed during the war... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_prop ... ed_Kingdom
You were not aware about the fact that when Hitler was not there any more the Germany asked Churchill to join forces... this time against Stalin?

Hitler considered the Brits as natural allies, with descent from early Germanic tribes. But he was opposed to anyone who was against his ideology and the rise of a strong Germany, which the Brits always were.

Hitler respected Brits because of the royal family, German tribes, Lower German language and other bla bla history facts and that's why he lost in the end. He wanted to be gentle, but he paid his price of that sentiment. :D

I still remember prince Harry. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Public will be angry, but they don't care. After all, they're Germans. :lol: :lol: :lol:

So how are the Maltese coping with this heatwave? We're the hottest place in Europe right now, or so I read.

It's normal temperature, no? I was expecting it to be hotter. When I am riding my bike in the afternoon though, I have to pull down the visor because the air is hot, it's like a hair dryer pointed towards my face. :lol:

I hate summer a lot... When I was a kid it was totally different, I used to go out playing football even at noon. Or by the sea of course

Same here but not playing football at noon. No way. I remember once when I used to play football with my team, U16 IIRC, we had a play-off in July at 12:00 or 13:00 at the Sirens ground when it was still gravel. Those Youth FA bastards. :evil: I finished the first half with my lips dried up, like being in the desert. I poured a whole 2Ltrs bottle of water on myself. :lol:

Oh God yes... those gravel grounds... f*ck the 90s... and all that reflection in your eyes. However strange enough I'd perform better in such conditions rather than on wet surface... :?
IIRC ??? what is that?
