Prince Philip was very interested in UFOs and aliens, royal aides have revealed. The Duke of Edinburgh was a subscriber to Flying Saucer Review and gave his former assistant Sir Peter Horsley “carte blanche” to collect stories about UFOs from the RAF. The Duke read a number of books on the topic, including Haunted Skies: The Encyclopedia of British UFO and The Halt Perspective, which tells the story of “Britain’s Roswell”.

The Duke may have been interested to learn that the Pentagon has confirmed that images and videos showing UFOs buzzing over Navy warships were taken by branch personnel. The 2019 images and footage, caught off the coast of California, show unidentified objects flying above four US destroyers, including the USS Kidd Navy destroyer. They will be shared as evidence in Congress later this year.
