Prince Philip is a 'devoted reader of books about UFOs'

Prince Philip is a ‘devoted reader of books about UFOs and aliens and has spent years building an extensive collection’

  • Believed his interest may have been sparked by his uncle Lord Mountbatten 
  • Philip allegedly read The Halt Perspective last summer – a book about UFOs 
  • He also reportedly added another UFO book to his ‘collection’ last year 

Prince Philip is reportedly a devoted reader of books about aliens and has spent years building his collection.  

It is believed that he became interested in UFOs and creatures from outer space because of his uncle Lord Mountbatten – who wrote an official report about a flying saucer landing on his estate, spotted by his bricklayer. 

Bricklayer Fred Briggs said he spotted a UFO and an alien creature land on Mountbatten’s Broadlands estate in Romsey, Hampshire, February 1955.  

The flying saucer hovered above the ground before a man dressed in overalls and a helmet descended from the bottom of the craft, according to the report.

Mr Briggs was then reportedly knocked off his bike and held on the ground by an ‘unseen force’.

The report was kept secret until Mountbatten died in 1979 and it was uncovered. 

Prince Philip allegedly read The Halt Perspective last summer which details the ins and outs of the Rendlesham Forest Incident, according to The Sun. 

On December 26, 1980, there was a series of reported sightings of unexplained lights near Rendlesham Forest, Suffolk, England which have become linked with claims of UFO landings.

One US officer even claimed he was close enough to touch one of the alleged spacecrafts.

The book was written by retired US Air Force Colonel Charles Halt, who was the base deputy commander at the time of the incident, and retired West Midlands detective John Hanson. 

Prince Philip’s secretary wrote to Mr Hanson and said, ‘I am certain it will be read with close interest over the summer,’ according to The Sun.

And after being sent another book, Haunted Skies: The Encyclopedia of British UFOs, his private secretary replied: ‘His Royal Highness will add this copy to his collection. It will make a most welcome addition to his library.’
