A man "of extremely low morals". Mentor to Charles Windsor.
Lord Louis Francis Albert Victor Nicholas Mountbatten, 1st Earl Mountbatten of Burma was a ‘homosexual with a perversion for young boys’, according to FBI files released decades after his death. In 1979, Mountbatten was killed by a bomb hidden aboard his fishing boat in Mullaghmore, County Sligo, Ireland.
"Prince Charles’ mentor Lord Mountbatten... the celebrated war hero, who was the last Viceroy of India, and his wife Edwina Mountbatten were described as ‘persons of extremely low morals’ in intelligence files, which claim both frequently had extramarital affairs.
The 75-year-old FBI documents came out after being obtained through a Freedom of Information (FOI) request made by British historian Andrew Lownie for his new biography The Mountbattens: their Lives and Loves."
Attempt to create a "Commonwealth Bilderberg group"
Phillip Murphy has suggested that having attended Bilderberg "in the late 1950s and early 1960s" Harold Wilson was "sufficiently persuaded of [Bilderberg]'s value and influence in international matters to give consideration to the formation of a commonwealth Bilderberg group with Prince Phillip as its figurehead." This idea, promoted by Louis Mountbatten and Prince Phillip was ultimately unsuccessful.
Attributed to the Provisional Irish Republican Army.
