Prince Philip Is Apparently Very Into Reading About Aliens
The royal has reportedly “spent decades collecting a library of books” on the subject of close encounters.

Like all good X-files fans, Prince Philip knows that “the truth is out there,” which is why the royal has reportedly spent decades preparing himself for a close encounter of the third kind by compiling a library of books on the subject.
According to The Sun, it was Philip’s uncle Lord Mountbatten who first sparked his interest in the subject of extraterrestrials. Mountbatten wrote an official report about a flying saucer landing on his Broadlands estate in Romsey, Hampshire after it was spotted by bricklayer Fred Briggs in February 1955. According to the report, which was kept secret until after his uncle’s death in 1979, Briggs claims that he saw a flying saucer hover above the ground and a man dressed in overalls and a helmet emerge before he was knocked off his bike and held to the ground by an “unseen force.”
Last summer, the husband of Queen Elizabeth also reportedly brushed up on his knowledge of alien sightings by reading The Halt Perspective about the Rendlesham Forest Incident which took place over the course of three nights beginning on December 26, 1980 near Suffolk, England. The book chronicles the series of UFO sightings and unexplained lights that took place on two U.S. airbases on those nights, with one officer even claiming he was close enough to touch the spacecraft.
In a letter to one of the co-authors of the book, retired West Midlands detective John Hanson, Philip’s private secretary Brigadier Archie Miller-Bakewell reportedly wrote, “I am certain it will be read with close interest over the summer.” After receiving another book on the topic— Haunted Skies: The Encyclopedia of British UFOs—Miller-Bakewell again replied, “His Royal Highness will add this copy to his collection. It will make a most welcome addition to his library.”
When asked about this recent revelation of the Prince’s interest in his book, Hanson told the outlet, “Why shouldn’t any sensible person have an interest in a phenomenon that has baffled mankind for millennia?”

ABOUT WINSTON CHURCHILL
Churchill knew about aliens, and likewise, Prince Phillip also expressed a very bold interest in flying saucers. He once asked Armstrong, Collins and Aldrin who were welcomed at Buckingham Palace as the Royal Family’s Honorable guests, whether their almost surreal mission to the moon had left them with more poignant impressions about the mysterious Universe. But the his disapointment the Astronauts, who were all suffering from a wretched flu at the time, explained that they had been much too preoccupied with the technicalities of the mission they were confronted with. I imagine, Prince Phillip, had been yearning for more pertinent answers of a more spiritual dimension and was clearly left questioning and pondering the many unanswered questions posed by all humans since time immemorial, about ‘why are we here and what is our destiny? Who is God?
Wartime Prime Minister Winston Churchill knew about aliens as far back as the 1950s a controversial new book claims. Codename “Angel”, is a historical novel based on true events that occurred in the 1950s during Churchill’s second term in office.
On the 28th July 1952 Churchill wrote a memo to one of his chief scientific advisors, one Lord Cherwell wanting to know more about flying saucers.
What does all this stuff about flying saucers amount to? What can it mean? What is the truth? He promptly requested a report at Lord Cherwell’s convenience.
28th July 1952
Author Jason Chapman came up with the idea for the book when he downloaded Churchill’s memo from the national Archives. He thought it would make an interesting storyline for a novel, Jason stated. After he downloaded Churchill’s flying saucer memo he discovered more documents relating to a group which operated in total secrecy during the 1950s. Known as the Flying Saucer Working Party it was made up of both scientific and military personnel. Their role was to gather information on flying saucers up and down the country, and sightings have since those days come into focus once again and have been on the increase around the globe.
