THE Queen has made it clear that she has never been in favour of the Holocaust.
The monarch stressed that a playful fascist salute as a seven year-old was not an endorsement of Nazi genocide, the invasion of Poland or Hitler’s alliance with the Japanese Empire.
A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: “Her Majesty would like to, once again, make clear that she was – and remains – firmly opposed to the Holocaust.
“As for strict laws on racial purity, Her Majesty believes that is a matter for Parliament.”
Meanwhile, it has emerged that as a 12 year-old the Queen wrote to Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin asking for a signed photograph.
The young Princess Elizabeth had ‘gone off’ Hitler after realising the Fuhrer had staged the Reichstag Fire in 1933 and blamed it on a Dutch communist.
A source said: “After that it was all about Stalin. He had very thick hair.”
