Prince Philip’s UFO investigation could be published after Queen’s death
Prince Philip’s UFO investigation may be revealed after Queen Elizabeth’s death.
The prince has developed a keen interest in aliens after a bricklayer reported a close encounter with extraterrestrial life at the home of Philip’s late uncle, Lord Louis Mountbatten, but so far his investigation into UFO sightings in the UK remains confidential.
Philip, who died in April 2021 at the age of 99, created the so-called Royal X-Files about space and extraterrestrial life.
According to the Daily Star, the royal family is now facing calls for a public inquiry. The work was kept secret during the Queen’s reign.
Nick Pope, a former Ministry of Defense official who headed the UK government’s UFO office between 1991 and 1994, claims Philip and his former RAF colleague Sir Peter Horsley spent years investigating alien sightings.
“[Philip] closely followed developments, subscribed to UFO magazines and newsletters, and interviewed witnesses,” he said.
He also claims that Philip’s interest in the subject was deliberately kept secret at the end of the monarchy because it would cause a stir.
Nick told History TV: “It’s very sensitive. Here, the queen’s husband is investigating UFOs. If the news gets out, it’s sure to cause a stir.”
Lord Mountbatten and Prince Philip, who were assassinated in August 1979, are said to have “discussed at length” the possibility of extraterrestrial life.
UFO expert Richard Dolan is convinced that the late monarch knew about the conversation between Felipe and his uncle.
“You have to assume that Queen Elizabeth knew about it,” he said.
