Prince Philip has been investigating UFOs for 70 years, it has been claimed.
Alien fans have called on ministers to release the results of the late Duke of Edinburgh following the death of his wife Queen Elizabeth.
Prince Philip, who died aged 99 in 2021, developed a “fascination” with the little green men after a close encounter at his uncle Lord Louis Mountbatten’s home in 1955.
The late royal was said to have spent much of his life investigating aliens, but the matter was kept quiet as it would “cause a sensation”.
Former Ministry of Defense official Nick Pope, who led the UK government’s UFO research in the 1990s, claimed that Philip, who was the husband of Queen Elizabeth II, who died in September aged 96, “followed developments, subscribed to UFO magazines and newsletters and interviewed witnesses.’
Speaking to History TV in America, the Pope said: “This is a very sensitive moment.
“Here you have the queen’s husband investigating UFOs. If this news became known, it would cause a sensation.’
Historian Richard Dolan also claimed that Lord Mountbatten “had a long talk with Prince Philip about it” about his UFO experiences, adding: “You have to assume that Queen Elizabeth knew.”
