It goes without saying that the British Royal family is one of the most talked about in the world. From the birth of Kate’s children, to the death of Princess Diana, we can’t get enough of what’s going on behind Buckingham Palace’s walls.
Did you know, though, that there is more to the family than meets the eye? Over the years, a number of mysteries surrounding British royalty have surfaced, and they’re not exactly what you would expect. If you think you knew everything about the Royal family, think again; they’re hiding some weird and dark secrets which will change everything that you thought you knew.
King Edward VII Was A Nazi Sympathizer
When Edward VIII abdicated his throne in order to marry American Wallis Simpson, it seemed like just another case of whirlwind romance. If you look a little closer at the affair, though, things take on a much more sinister turn.
The pair began making regular visits to Hitler and his wife after they married, and the MI5 believed that Wallis was responsible for carrying confidential information to the German forces. According to historical sources, the Nazis wanted to reinstall Edward as King once they won the war, a fact which the ex-Royal never alluded to in his life.
Richard III Was A Murderer
Richard III was one of the most interesting and unsettling Royal leaders in history. Among other strange tales in his past lies the fact that he might have been responsible for the deaths of his two young nephews.
Sources show that Richard III sent the boys to the Tower of London and killed them in order to cut off their chances of reaching the throne. Scarier yet, the King never even acknowledged the princes’ deaths, something which only points further to his guilt.
