Queen reiterates opposition to Nazi genocide

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.”
