Billed as a 49-minute documentary focusing on Queen Victoria’s favourite grandson, Prince Charles Edward where he went from a British Prince to a German Duke. He ended up fighting for Germany in World War One and lost his British titles as a result.

True Royalty explains, “Prince Charles Edward was Queen Victoria’s favourite grandson. At the age of 16, he was ordered to Germany by his grandmother where he was transformed from a British Prince into a German Duke…and eventually Nazi.

“At the outbreak of the First World War, Prince Charles Edward had no option but to fight for Germany against the country of his birth. When the War ended, he was stripped of his British titles. Disillusioned and depressed, Charles Edward became an enthusiastic supporter of Adolf Hitler’s National Socialist Workers’ Party, and unwittingly helped him in his rise to power.”

This is a perfect documentary as royals all over the world are marking the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War this year. Take a look into how royals didn’t always work for the good when it came to World War Two and Adolph Hitler in “Hitler’s Favourite Royal”.
