UFO expert thinks aliens would love Queen Elizabeth.
Journalist Nick Pope – who has investigated UFOs for the Ministry of Defense – offered his thoughts on what extraterrestrial beings would do to the British royal family, and he suggested they would have mixed feelings.
As quoted by the Daily Star newspaper, he said: “I don’t know what aliens would think of our monarchy.
“But they would probably wonder how this powerful institution got bogged down in gossip and scandal.
“Having said that, I think they would see the Queen as a real leader.”
Unfortunately for aliens, if they visit Earth for the 95-year-old monarch’s Platinum Jubilee this year, they won’t be allowed to dance with her at the Royal Albert Hall.
Although the Queen has appeared in the lodge at the historic London venue countless times over the years, a 150-year-old document means she can’t get up and boogie likes other punters.
Venue CEO Craig Hassall recently said, “It’s in the constitution, you’re not allowed.”
There was a time when the rule was nearly broken when Nelson Mandela was the guest of honor at the “Two Nations Celebrate” concert in 1996.
He arrived in the UK for a four-day state visit, with Phil Collins, Tony Bennett and Quincy Jones performing on the special, which was raising money for the Prince’s Trust.
The Queen, Prince Charles and Mandela’s daughter, Zenani Mandela-Diamini, were all in attendance, but policy means people in the club are not allowed to dance.
However, artistic director Lucy Noble explained: “The whole royal family was here in the queen’s box with Nelson Mandela.
“It was a full party atmosphere – the whole Royal Albert Hall was dancing. But there’s this policy in the Queen’s box that you can’t dance.
“They were all sitting there. But Nelson Mandela gets up and does this really cool dance. Then the Queen got up and held her purse and just stood there. It was hilarious, that moment.”
