Churchill’s Effort To Hide Nazi Plot

2

Britain’s Daily Mail reports that according to newly opened archives, former Prime Minister Winston Churchill tried to stall the publicizing of a Nazi plan to install the Duke of Windsor as king in the event that England was successfully invaded. The pro-Nazi Duke of Windsor, former King Edward VIII, had abdicated the British throne in 1936 to marry a divorcee.

“If they were to be included in an official publication they might leave the impression that the Duke was in close touch with German agents and was listening to suggestions that were disloyal,” Churchill wrote to then President Dwight Eisenhower in 1953.

The Windsor papers were published in 1957.
