Nazis ban photos of former king
German newspapers are banned from publishing photos of the Duke of Windsor and Mrs. Wallis Warfield Simpson, reports the Associated Press.
Newspaper editors were informed of the official regulations today.
Newspapers were already banned from the publication of photos of Mrs. Simpson even before Edward VIII abdicated. The order has since been extended to the former king. Editors were "instructed" to not publish stories about the Duke of Windsor's visit to Austria.
No "official reason" has been given for the ban, but "authoritative circles" said it was meant as a "courtesy to Great Britain."
