Prince Philip’s passion for UFOs and aliens exposed – Duke collected books for decades


It has been revealed the Duke spent last summer reading The Halt Perspective – a 2016 book by retired US Air Force Colonel Charles Halt and ex-West Midlands detective John Hanson. It details British UFO sightings including the Rendlesham Forest incident.

The Sun claims Prince Philip's private secretary Brigadier Archie Miller-Bakewell wrote a letter to Mr Hanson, in which he stated the book would be “read with close interest over the summer”.

The secretary also referenced another book called ‘Haunted Skies: The Encyclopaedia of British UFOs’ also by Mr Hanson.

Brigadier Miller-Bakewell reportedly said that book would “make a most welcome addition to his library”.

The ‘Rendlesham Forest incident’ to which The Halt Perspective makes reference is considered to be one of the most famous UFO sightings in Britain.

A documentary on it, titled Codename Rendlesham, investigates reports by US airmen who claimed to have seen a UFO in the Suffolk forest in December of 1980.

The story goes that multiple US Air Force personnel, based at RAF Woodbridge at the time, decided to investigate “lights” they spotted in the trees nearby.
