Both King George VI (as Duke of Normandy) and Queen Elizabeth were shocked to see the Channel Islands fall under Nazi occupation and made a special trip after the liberation to celebrate their return to freedom.

In political matters, the 'Windsors' send messages symbolically. The Bavarian Bratwurst Parure and the Prussian Pretzel Tiara were last seen on Queen Mary in 1941.

In 1940-41 when the Germans occupied the channel islands 14 year old Elizabeth was shocked and demanded that her father and Winston Churchill send an army there to reclaim it back for Britain.

The Queen was not crowned until 1952, after the end of the war. They King was not in a position to do anything, because the Prime Minister makes government decisions. When the Germans invaded the islands, Churchill decided that they were of little strategic importance and not worth fighting for at the time, so he left the islanders in the hands of the Germans. Many young people, especially girls, had been evacuated by ship before the occupation.
