Internet Reacts To The Sun’s ‘Nazi Salute Queen’ Front Page

So, it’s safe to say The Sun’s latest front page scoop has caused a bit of controversy.

Of course, that’s nothing new for the UK tabloid but the splash on Saturday’s cover complete with headline “Their Royal Heilness” could be one of their most outrageous to date.

The story, to which the paper dedicated a whopping seven pages, centres on a photograph of a six-year-old Queen Elizabeth II mimicking the Queen Mother’s gesture in what is widely recognised as a Nazi salute.

And, unsurprisingly, the picture from 1933 (the year Hitler became chancellor of Germany) has caused a lot of outrage on social media.

It should be noted that The Sun also published a small column on page six justifying their publication of the controversial photos, and remarking that the images must be seen “in context”.

Others jumped in to defend the Sun’s decision to publish the photos…

And then, of course, the jokes started rolling in…
