The British royal family has its own fair share of scandals.

Many people look up to the royal family. However, just like any human being, they sometimes make poor choices too. Here's a list of the biggest controversies involving the members of the royal family.

Prince Harry's Nudes

In 2012, the Duke of Sussex's nude photos made headlines. According to reports, Prince Harry was playing strip billiards in Las Vegas. Prince William's brother expressed his regret over it.

"I let myself down, I let my family down, I let other people down," he said. Prince Harry is already a changed man, especially after he met his wife, Meghan Markle.

Sarah Ferguson's Toegate Scandal

According to royal expert, Prince Philip is furious with the Duchess of York due to her infamous toe-sucking photos with her financial advisor, John Bryan. It was reportedly the reason her marriage with Prince Andrew ended.

"She was famously photographed with her financial advisor and she was wearing a bikini in some garden in the south of France and he appeared to be sucking her toes," royal biographer Penny Juror said in the documentary. "She was at Balmoral when those photographs came out. The family came down for breakfast and there was Fergie in this shocking scene and that was the end."

Princess Anne's Ex-Husband Has a Love Child

Princess Anne married Lieutenant Markle Phillips in 1973. However, 12 years later it was revealed that he had an affair and was fathering a secret love child in New Zealand.

Princess Anne and Philips separated in 1989 and divorced in 1992. The Royal Princess married Commodore Timothy Laurence in 1992.

Princess Margaret's Married Lover

Queen Elizabeth II's sister reportedly fell in love with a married member of the royal staff, Group Captain Peter Townsend, before she married Anthony Armstrong-Jones. Townsend was 16 years her senior and their romance was caught when she flicked a piece of fluff on his uniform during Queen Elizabeth II's coronation.

King Edward VIII Abdication for Love

Unlike Prince Harry and Markle's relationship, King Edward VIII's romance with American divorcee Wallis Simpson was not well-accepted by the royal family and the public. The U.K. government and Dominions of the British Commonwealth raised a number of religious and moral arguments against their marriage.

So, King Edward VIII decided to gave up the throne for his lady love and they exiled to Australia. In a broadcast, he said that he could not fulfill the job of a king "as I would have wished" without the support "of the woman I love."
