ET throne home
By CAROLINE IGGULDEN
Published: 23 Jan 2009
THE Queen and Prince Philip were gripped by the mystery of crop circles, it was revealed yesterday.
Letters seen by The Sun showed the couple asked to be kept informed about the weird farmland patterns.
Her Maj also asked an aide to send a sympathetic letter to Britains leading expert whose research was under threat.
And Philip was so intrigued he had newsletters on the circles thought by many to be created by extraterrestrial beings sent to Buckingham Palace.
They were published by researcher Colin Andrews, 61, an ex-local government engineer.
He said yesterday that his book Circular Evidence was placed on a summer reading list prepared for the Queen.
He later received a letter from her private secretary. It read: Her Majesty has taken an interest in the mysterious crop circles for some time and was sad to hear your results of years of research into the question are at risk through lack of funds.
Meanwhile, Philip paid £6 for an annual subscription to Colins crop circle round-up.
Colin said: What has infuriated me is that the MoD continues to deny the Royal Family took an interest in the subject when I know for a fact they did.
The Royal fascination matched the nations at the height of the phenomena in the 1980s and 1990s.
