Prince Philip is a ‘devoted reader of books about UFOs’
Prince Philip is “a dedicated reader of books on UFOs and extraterrestrials and has built up an extensive collection over the years”.
- He believed his interest might have been piqued by his uncle, Lord Mountbatten
- Philip is said to have read The Halt Perspective last summer – a book about UFOs
- He reportedly added another UFO book to his “collection” last year
Prince Philip is reportedly an avid reader of alien books and has spent years building his collection.
It is believed that he became interested in UFOs and creatures from space because of his uncle Lord Mountbatten – who wrote an official report on a flying saucer that landed on his estate and was discovered by his mason.
Bricklayer Fred Briggs said he discovered a UFO and alien land on the Broadlands estate of Mountbatten in Romsey, Hampshire in February 1955.
The flying saucer hovered above the ground before a man in overalls and a helmet descended from the bottom of the vehicle, according to the report.
Mr Briggs was reportedly knocked off his bicycle and held to the ground by an “invisible force”.

The report was kept secret until Mountbatten died in 1979 and was exposed.
Prince Philip reportedly read The Halt Perspective last summer, which, according to The Sun, detailed the pros and cons of the Rendlesham Forest Incident.
On December 26, 1980, there were a number of reported sightings of unexplained lights near Rendlesham Forest, Suffolk, England that were linked to allegations of UFO landings.
One US officer even claimed he was close enough to touch one of the alleged spaceships.

The book was written by retired U.S. Air Force Colonel Charles Halt, who was the base’s deputy in command at the time of the incident, and retired West Midlands detective John Hanson.
Prince Philip’s secretary wrote to Mr Hanson, saying, “I am sure it will be read with great interest this summer,” according to The Sun.
And after receiving 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 be a very welcome addition to his library. ‘
