The BBC have revealed the story behind the some 60 images of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor meeting Adolf Hitler which sold at auction for £6,830.

The controversial photographs were taken during a 1937 visit which was not supported by the British government and appear to further support the long standing  accusations that the former King and his wife were Nazi sympathizers. 

However, Royal historians have insisted that the Duke's actions were 'peaceful' and were part of his way of carving a new image of himself and his wife whom he had given up the throne for in 1936.

The black and white images were sold at Duke’s Auctions in Dorchester, Dorset.
