Actually I suspect the pro-German views stemed more from the relationship of royalty in Europe. The royal families of most European countries were/are related to each other by blood or marriage at some point in time. The British royal family are Windsors (Victoria, the Edwards, Elizabeth II, etc) and were originally a German family anyway so the Duke's sympathies for the Germans is not too surprising. And, if memory serves, Wallace Simpson, his American wife was from a wealthy American industrialist family that had pro-German sympathies in both wars.
