How, eighteen years ago, King Charles' grandpa fooled Hitler

– King George VI, grandfather of King Charles, played a key role in Operation Fortitude, a deception mission to mislead Hitler about the D-Day invasion.

– The King visited southeast England, heavily publicized by media, to make Germans believe the attack would come from Calais, France.

– He also made a trip to Scotland, hinting at a potential attack on Norway, further confusing German troop positioning.

– This elaborate ruse, along with other tactics, convinced Hitler to defend Atlantic Wall locations that weren't the actual D-Day landing sites.

– King George VI's involvement as a high-profile decoy helped ensure the success of the D-Day invasion.
