IDENTFYING THE REAL COMMANDER X
WILL THE REAL COMMANDER X PLEASE STAND UP
“IDENTITY” OF MILITARY INTELLIGENCE OPERATIVE REVEALED...
FOR FIRST TIME!
For more than a decade the mysterious Commander X has caused controversy and dissension among conspiracy theorists, Area 51 aficionados and UFO believers world-wide. Some accept his hair-raising accounts of working behind the scenes with the CIA, the NSA and other government and quasi-federal agencies at face value, while others scratch their heads in bewilderment and wonder if his first-hand chronicles are not at least partially linked to a disinformation program promoted by the New World Order. His face to face confrontations with the greys and reptilians have caused deep concern and discomfort to many.
For the first time, here is the complete dossier on Commander X’s many exploits both with various groups of highly aggressive ultra-extraterrestrials as well as his various battles with our own earthly authorities hell-bent on keeping all these matters of a highly confidential – TOP SECRET! – nature.
Included among the many shocking – and surprising – revelations
* The Alien Dinosaur Connection.
* Who inhabits the Subterranean Regions of Earth?
* Evidence suggests humans victims were still alive when their blood was drained and body parts removed in underground UFO bases.
* The many special powers of ETs – including levitation, dematerialization, invisibility, mind control, advanced light beam technology.
* A Nazi – Alien collaboration. How the Occult inner circle of the Third Reich contacted grey aliens before World War II using ritual magic.
* Evidence Hitler shipped equipment and slave laborers to the Antarctic to construct a fleet of flying saucers.
* The end results was the start of a program to infiltrate the governments of the world after WWII. Many of the early UFO contactees had Nazi UFO connections.
* Proof that the Nazis transferred into the midst of the American spy and space agencies.
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY OF ALL – ARE HUMAN CLONES GOING TO BE USED TO REPLACE ASSASSINATED POLITICIANS?
Only Commander X dares answer these questions.

Groundbreaking UFO Video Just Released By Chilean Navy
By Leslie Kean
An exceptional nine-minute Navy video of a UFO displaying highly unusual behavior, studied by Chilean authorities for the last two years, is now being released to the public. The CEFAA - the Chilean government agency which investigates UFOs, or UAP (unidentified aerial phenomena), has been in charge of the investigation. Located within the DGAC, the equivalent of our FAA but under the jurisdiction of the Chilean Air Force, CEFAA has committees of military experts, technicians and academics from many disciplines. None of them have been able to explain the strange flying object captured by two experienced Navy officers from a helicopter.
The Chilean government agency always makes its cases public when an investigation is complete, and acknowledges the existence of UAP when a case merits such a conclusion.
General Ricardo Bermúdez, Director of CEFAA during the investigation, told me that “We do not know what it was, but we do know what it was not.” And “what it is not” comprises a long list of conventional explanations. Here is what happened:
On November 11, 2014, a Chilean Navy helicopter (Airbus Cougar AS-532) was on a routine daytime patrol mission flying north along the coast, west of Santiago. On board were the pilot, a Navy Captain with many years of flying experience, and a Navy technician who was testing a WESCAM’s MX-15 HD Forward Looking Infra Red (FLIR) camera, used most often for “medium-altitude covert intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance,” according to the product website. The aircraft was flying at an altitude of approximately 4,500 feet on a clear afternoon with unlimited horizontal visibility, and the air temperature at that height was 50 degrees F (10 C). There was a cloud base above at 10,000 feet, and a layer of stratuscumulos clouds below. The helicopter was flying at about 132 knots, or 152 mph.
At 1:52 pm, while filming the terrain, the technician observed a strange object flying to the left over the ocean. Soon both men observed it with the naked eye. They noticed that the velocity and the altitude of the object appeared to be about the same as the helicopter, and estimated that the object was approximately 35 to 40 miles (55-65 km) away. It was traveling W/NW, according to the Captain. The technician aimed the camera at the object immediately and zoomed in with the infra red (IR) for better clarity.
Shortly thereafter, the pilot contacted two radar stations - one close by on the coast, and the other the main DGAC Control system (Ground Primary Radar) in Santiago - to report the unknown traffic. Neither station could detect it on radar, although both easily picked up the helicopter. (The object was well within the range of radar detection.) Air traffic controllers confirmed that no traffic, either civilian or military, had been reported in the area, and that no aircraft had been authorized to fly in the controlled air space where the object was located. The on-board radar was also unable to detect the object and the camera’s radar could not lock onto it.
The pilot tried several times to communicate with the UAP, using the multi-national, civilian bandwidth designed for this purpose. He received no reply.
The technician filmed the object for nine minutes and twelve seconds, mainly in IR. This sensor produces a black and white video in which the black, white and grey tones are directly related to temperature. IR detects heat, and the hotter the material being filmed, the darker it appears on the image. The officers stopped the camera when they had to return to the base and the object disappeared behind the clouds.
The Navy immediately turned over the footage to the CEFAA, and General Bermúdez, accompanied by nuclear chemist Mario Avila, a CEFAA scientific committee member, conducted interviews with the two officers at their Navy base. “I was very impressed by these witnesses,” Avila told me. “They were highly trained professionals with many years experience, and they were absolutely certain that they could not explain what they saw.” Both offiicers also provided written reports at the base, as is required, and for CEFAA.
The Navy Captain stated that the object was a “flat, elongated structure” with “two thermal spotlights like discharges that did not coincide with the axel of motion.” The technician described it as as “white with a semi-oval shape on the horizontal axis.”
But there is one additional component that makes this footage particularly unique: “In two instances it discharged some type of gas or liquid with a high thermal track or signal,” the technician stated. After filming for about eight minutes, the stunning ejection of a massive plume of a very hot material is captured on the video, trailing behind the object. (The plume blended into the clouds when seen in HD.) Another ejection occurred moments later. It is indeed bizarre to watch this on the video.
During the following two years, at least eight somewhat contentious meetings were held with members of the baffled CEFAA scientific committee, some of which included the active Air Force General who directs the DGAC. According to CEFAA international affairs director Jose Lay, the general tone of the meetings was astonishment: “What the hell is that?” No agreement could be reached to explain the video - theories that were proposed were ruled out by the data.
Written reports or video analyses were provided by the well-known astrophysicist Luis Barrera; an image expert from the Air Force photogrammetric service; photo and video analyst Francois Louange and colleagues from France, arranged through the French agency GEIPAN; Luis Salazar, Chilean Air Force meteorologist; a DGAC aeronautic engineer; a digital images specialist from the National Museum of Aeronautics and Space in Santiago; and Mario Avila, a nuclear chemist. All radar, satellite weather data, and details of air traffic in that sector at that time were provided.
The French analysts proposed that the object was a “medium-haul aircraft” coming in for a landing into the Santiago airport, and “the effluent trail observed on two occasions probably results from dumping some cabin waste water, forming a plume oriented along the local wind blowing from the west.” They based this on their calculation that the distance between the two hot spots was “consistent with the standard distance between the two jet engines of a medium-haul aircraft.”
Chilean experts knew that this would have been impossible, for a number of reasons: This plane would have been seen on primary radar; it would have had to be cleared for landing in Santiago or at another airport; it would likely have responded to radio communications. Airplanes do not throw out water when landing. In fact, in Chile a plane wishing to eject any material must request permission from the DGAC before doing so; that regulation is widely known and respected. And, it seems unlikely that this experienced pilot would not have recognized this as an airplane, or at least kept that option open afterwards if it were a possibility.
In fact, if - hypothetically - water was expelled, it would have immediately plummeted to the ground given the warm air temperature. According to NASA, “Contrails are human-induced clouds that usually form at very high altitudes (usually above 8 km - about 26,000 ft) where the air is extremely cold (less than -40ºC). Because of this, contrails form not when an airplane is taking off or landing, but while it is at cruise altitude.” The plume ejected from the object must have been some kind of gas or energy, and was not something tangible like water.
The French calculations confirmed that the UAP’s altitude was the same as the helicopter’s, and that “the helicopter’s velocity along its linear trajectory was constant (120 kt),” just as the witnesses had stated. In addition, Louange and his colleagues determined that the average distance between the helicopter and the object was “almost exactly the estimated value reported by the Navy (55 km).” Clearly the two witnesses were competent and accurate observers.
Data from the various reports eliminate other conventional explanations. Meteorologists determined that no weather balloons were in the sky at that time, and noted that a ballon would not move horizontally along with the plane because the wind was blowing from the west towards the shore. Comparing the footage to similar IR satellite imagery with known temperature values, they stated that the object’s temperature must have been higher than 122 degrees F (50 C). The object was not a drone; all drones require registration with the DGAC and whenever flown, the DGAC is informed, just like it is with aircraft. Also, radar would register drones. CEFAA staff went up the chain of command to a Navy Admiral who informed them that there were no joint Naval exercises underway with the US or any other country. The Admiral confirmed that this could not have been a US drone, or any type of espionage or secret vehicle from a foreign country.
Astrophysicist Barrera explored the possibility of space junk re-entry - especially Russian - which somehow may have broken and released compressed gases at this low altitude. It was confirmed that no space debris entered the atmosphere on that date in that location, and in any case, such an object would have fallen rapidly and not flown horitzontally. Two independent experts on explosives told CEFAA staff that in such a scenario, the rounded vehicle would explode in the air due to the high internal pressure, and that the gas would catch fire in a flash. And any such re-entries would have been communicated to the Chilean government so that aircraft can be warned, as is the protocol.
Barrera also noted that when the first ejection event occurred, the material came out from two different parts of the object and then joined in space making one wake. The first was massive and dark in the IR (meaning very hot); the second lighter and semi-transparent.
Air Force photo analysts confrmed that the object was a real, three dimensional form with volume and that it “has control in its movements.” It was not affected by the winds, reflected the light, and threw out “some kind of energy.” They established that there was no evidence of hoaxing or of “alteration of the video by any computer application in the editing and processing of the images.” They also ruled out a bird, flying insect, drone, parachute or hang glider. “It can be concluded that the object has all the characteristics to be classified as an unidentified aerial phenomenon” wrote Alberto Vergara, the lead analyst from the Air Force Photogrammetric Department.
It is unclear how much of the apparent horizontal motion of the object may be the clouds moving or the relative motion of the camera on the helicopter, but the witnesses reported that the object kept pace with the chopper and the French analysts confirmed this. Also noteworthy is the fact that when in HD mode, the large plume looked like part of the cloud and would never be noticed as anything unusual by an observer. Without the IR camera, it would have been difficult to see the white object against the sky and impossible to capture this remarkable footage. It makes one wonder what kind of actiivites may take place within clouds that are unknown to us.
“This has been one of the most important cases in my career as director of CEFAA because our Committee was at its best, “ General Bermúdez said in an email. “The CEFAA is well regarded partly because there is full participation from the scientists of the academic world, the armed forces through their representatives, and the aeronautic personnel from the DGAC, including its Director. I am extremely pleased as well with the conclusion reached which is logical and unpretentious.” The official conclusion was that “the great majority of committee members agreed to call the subject in question a UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon) due to the number of highly researched reasons that it was unanimously agreed could not explain it.”
This case represents one of the most puzzling and fascinating of all cases in the CEFAA files, according to Jose Lay. “It is our first video taken with a sophisticated camera in the infra red; the first time we have ever seen the ejection of a substance from a UAP; the first time we have a sighting lasting over nine minutes with two highly reliable witnesses,” he said when we spoke.
The CEFAA has been a world leader in official and open investigations of UFOs. I have been priviledged to work closely with the staff there for about five years, learning a great deal. At the end of December, General Bermúdez retired, and although he remains an external advisor to the agency, Lay has assumed the duty of interim director until another General is appointed by the DGAC. I am grateful to General Bermúdez for giving me access to the outstanding CEFAA case files, inviting me to attend meetings there, and for his time in answering my questions. He has left a tremendous legacy with regards to the serious study of UAP and the official recognition of a real unexplained phenomenon in our skies.

2017 Will Be the Year We Decide Whether to Put a Call Out to Aliens
By Kaleigh Rogers
The search for extraterrestrial intelligent life in the universe may sound like science fiction to some, but it’s been a legitimate and active part of astronomy research for decades. Now, some researchers want to take the next step, from looking for signs of life to sending out signals and telling any aliens out there: “Hey, we’re down here!”
This idea has drawn criticism from the likes of Stephen Hawking and launched a debate that will come to a head this year as a young organization rolls out its plan to craft a message to blast out to potential aliens some time in 2018. METI International, launched in 2015, is a nonprofit research group that plans to start messaging by the end of next year. Their name means “messaging extraterrestrial intelligence” (a play on SETI, the “search for extraterrestrial intelligence”).
“One of the big questions has been: is this dangerous, to be transmitting to extraterrestrials?” said Douglas Vakoch, the president of METI International. “Maybe they’re having a bad millennium and they’re feeling malevolent. But if that’s the case, they can come anyway.”
The main criticism that arises is how little we know about any potential life forms out there, and if they’re unfriendly, alerting them to our existence could be fatal. They might decide to attack our planet for resources, or eliminate our entire species just for fun. Or, if they’re like the heptapods in Arrival, just trying to help unite us.
“We have almost zero idea of whether aliens are likely to be dangerous,” wrote Mark Buchanan, a physicist, in an issue of Nature Physics last summer. “The single history of evolving biological life that we know of — here on Earth — carries a strong theme of violent conflict, perpetual battle for resources and the oppression of weaker groups by stronger ones.”
We’re not exactly an optimistic case study. But those in favor of reaching out, like Vakoch, believe if these unfriendly life forms are out there, and have the scientific advancement to travel to us, they would have already been able to find us: the Earth has been leaking radio waves for decades, which have reached the nearest 7,000 stars.
Vakoch has a PhD in psychology but has been grappling with the question of whether to try to communicate with intelligent life in the universe—and what to say if we do—since the late 90s with the SETI Institute. He told me part of the METI mission is to test out a challenge to the Fermi paradox—which questions why, if the universe is theoretically teeming with life, we still haven’t met any aliens.
One theory is that intelligent alien life surrounds us, but is keeping itself hidden from us plebeian life forms. The only way to get their attention would be to reach out first. (Fellow Star Trek fans will recognize this theory as fitting in nicely with the Prime Directive.)
It wouldn’t be the first time we’ve deliberately sent messages into space: NASA has done it, with its golden record on Voyager, plaques on Pioneer 10 & 11, and (for some reason) a Beatles song it beamed out in 2008. But the difference is that these messages were tangential to the real mission: great, if some aliens stumble across them, but they were not directed at a planet where we think life might exist. METI, by contrast, would be very deliberately sending messages to specific locations, such as Proxima B, an Earthlike planet in the habitable zone near our closest neighbor, Proxima Centauri. That message could travel to Proxima B in just over four years, meaning we could have a response (if there is indeed intelligent life there) just over eight years after sending the message.
But if you’re still siding with Stephen Hawking with this one and are worried it’s too risky, don’t panic yet. Vakoch told me METI will be hosting three important meetings this year to continue this debate. One meeting, in St. Louis in May, will specifically consider the potential risks and benefits of alerting other possible life forms to our existence, and may in fact convince the group to hold off on sending out messages.
“That’s possible,” Vakoch said. “We want to hear from people who do have concerns and we want to look for a method that will let us find common ground.”
And even if METI goes forward with its plan to send out a message in 2018, it will need either the permission of one of Earth’s existing large radio telescopes, or enough funding to build their own, so there’s no guarantee either will happen.
Whatever side of the debate you fall on, it’s pretty fascinating to see the different arguments unfold. The possibility of intelligent life in the universe is so real, it’s causing some of our greatest scientists to freak out over whether or not we want to find it.

Reality’s Different Levels or Dimensions
Have you wondered why some people cannot believe in the existence of a nonphysical world even though they may have encounters with nonphysical beings?
I remember a friend who saw the ghost of his father in his living room after the father’s burial. The ghost smiled then disappeared.
My friend, a highly rational and skeptical man, could not believe he saw his father’s spirit because he did not believe in ghosts. He dismissed the incident as just a product of his own imagination.
“Maybe I just missed my father, and so my mind created and projected an image of him. But he wasn’t really there,” he said.
Others dismiss ghosts and other nonphysical entities because of religious bias. The Christian religion teaches that when a person dies, his/her spirit goes to heaven, purgatory or hell and, therefore, cannot return to earth. “Whatever is seen is the devil’s work, or a product of one’s imagination.”
The great English essayist and thinker Sir Francis Bacon pointed out that once a person adopted a point of view or opinion agreeable to him/her, he/she would do everything to preserve that belief. Even if there were better reasons to believe otherwise, he/she would make distinctions or rationalizations so that the original opinion or belief remained intact.
I see examples of this tendency of the human mind quite often.
I once accompanied an American science writer to see our faith healers (psychic surgeons) at work. He saw the healer open the body of a patient with his bare hands, take out diseased tissues or blood clots, and close the opening without any trace of the procedure.
The American watched all this at close range and took lots of pictures.
When the process was over, the writer slumped on a chair in a state of shock. I was talking to him but he did not hear anything. He just sat there staring blankly. His wife gave him water to drink. Afterwards he said to me, “I see it, but I don’t believe it!”
When his article came out in Omni Magazine, sister publication of Penthouse, he declared that the whole process of bare-handed psychic surgery was completely fraudulent. But he could not explain how Filipino faith healers did the trickery in front of him.
“The hand is faster than the eyes.” He believed what was taken from the patient’s body, the tissues or blood clots, or whatever they were, were hidden cleverly in the hands of the healer and did not really come from the patient’s body.
This is still the opinion on psychic surgery of majority of western investigators. “It’s simply sleight-of-hand or trickery.”
But I think there is another explanation why some people cannot believe in ghosts, elementals, psychic powers and other paranormal events. It has something to do with different levels or dimensions of reality.
We have, on the one hand, our common, day-to-day type of reality, which neuro-scientist Lawrence Le Shan calls Ordinary Reality. But there is another way of perceiving the world, what Le Shan calls Clairvoyant Reality.
The problem is that people using ordinary perception do not and cannot see other levels of reality. Thus, they cannot believe it exists. To “see” spirits and ghosts, or experience a supernatural event, one must somehow be in an altered state of consciousness.
I think the basic problem lies in the insistence of materialist science that there is only one level or dimension of reality, the physical world. All the rest are illusions or imaginary. So they label supernatural stories “fairy tales.”
Commonly held or accepted beliefs are difficult to change. There was a time when everybody believed that the sun revolved around the earth, until Galileo proved it was the other way around.
But since that view was considered not only unscientific but, worse, heretical from an ecclesiastical standpoint, Church authorities forced him to retract his statement or be burned at the stake. He reluctantly retracted under duress but he reportedly murmured, “But it (the earth) still moves.”
Mexican shamans, whom anthropologist Carlos Castañeda wrote about in his fascinating books (beginning with “The Teachings of Don Juan”), say there are two ways of looking at reality, Tonal and the Nagual.
The Tonal corresponds to Le Shan’s Ordinary Reality and the Nagual to Clairvoyant Reality. A person in the Ordinary Reality cannot see anything beyond the physical world. But, in the Nagual mode, he/she can see the unseen, or what ordinary eyes cannot see.
Psychics, mystics, and holy men and women of all countries from ancient times to the present have attested to this fact.

Children Who Claim to Have Died at WTC on 9/11
It was a terrible day for humanity: There was fire, fear, and lots of pain on September 11, 2001, in New York City where an attack performed by radical groups killed thousands of people and still creates much controversy. But what if somehow these people who lost their lives there, were reincarnated?
These days there are reports of children giving full details of what happened that September 11 at the World Trade Center, in a way only someone who was there would know. We’ve learned before about children remembering past lives. Are these children, reincarnated 9/11 victims?
The reincarnation of a firefighter who died on September 11
Rachel Nolan is a mother who claims her nearly 4-year-old son, Thomas, is the reincarnation of a deceased firefighter. The boy has been talking for one year about what happened that September 11 during the attacks at the World Trade Center. It all started when the child was asked what he wanted to be when he grew up, to which he replied: “I don’t just want to be a firefighter, I have always been and already am a firefighter!”. This took everyone by surprise, but he went on to say: “I used to get up in the morning, go to work and in the evenings I would come home and take off my fire proximity suit.”
The mother thought that these were just children’s games, although she found the level of detail to be unsettling, for instance, he said he used an ax to check if there was fire behind walls and to flee if there was danger at the site, but something more shocking than this occurred when the boy saw a picture of the World Trade Center in a magazine and said, “The bad men burnt these buildings, and people had to jump and I couldn’t help”, “There were people waiting for firefighters, waiting for me but I could not get there to help them.”
Hearing all the details given by the boy, his mother concluded that someone had reincarnated in the body of her son so she asked him how he got there. Thomas gave details of the exact model of the truck used by the firefighters in Manhattan, a Ford Johnson R8. Rachel kept listening to her son because in the family was no firemen and no one who could have given details of what happened in the attacks of 2001. The child spoke with confidence as if it were the firefighter living in that little body after reincarnating, something really incredible.
Another case of a child who claimed to be a firefighter who rescued people during the 9/11 attacks was introduced by a woman who called to a radio station, saying her son started to describe very specific circumstances of that day as soon as he started to talk. The boy even said that he had been able to decide that she was going to be his mother. This is a subject that is not commonly discussed in the United States, being a sensitive matter and very hard to prove.
Other 9/11 Reincarnation Stories
Another mother named Lucia said that her 4-year-old had also started describing what happened during that same event on September 11, 2001, but in this case his son claimed to be a worker who died in the tragedy. When shown a photo of the towers he was able to identify the window where he worked and told his mother, “That’s where I worked, Mama”, the awesomeness of this case is that the child says he felt the building fall and even said: “Mom, I’m still buried there.”
These cases give us evidence of the inexplicable and strange phenomena of life after death. These reincarnation cases of September 11 leave more questions than answers, but a lot to say about reincarnation and past lives. Is this possible? Could these people who died tragically be returning to life on other bodies? Should these children keep talking and researching to find out?

Bad News About Wessie, Maine’s Mysterious Giant Snake
By Paul Seaburn
One day, in the early summer, you became the talk of the paranormal world. Whispers of your existence were reinforced by mysterious sightings and the discovery of a huge discarded skin. You made the national and world news and got your own exhibit at a cryptozoology museum. Then … you’re not seen for six months. No videos, no tracks, no skins, no blurred appearances on cellphone cameras. The fickle media – hungry for stories of terrified witnesses – decides you’re dead. Let this be a lesson to Bigfoot, Nessie and other cryptids. Keep your name in the news or you could end up in the cryptid obituaries with Wessie, the late, great, giant snake of Westbrook, Maine.
The story of the giant snake began in June, 2016, with the Westbrook law enforcement getting reports of a 10-foot-long snake in Riverbank Park. The sighting was confirmed by police officers who spotted a large snake in the Presumpscot River, apparently eating a large mammal – possibly a beaver.
Rumors of other alleged sightings spread quickly but interest skyrocketed on August 20th when a resident found a snakeskin near the river measuring about 12 feet (3.6 m) long. That skin was identified by experts as a green anaconda (Eunectes murinus) that could reach 17 feet in length. With this announcement, the giant snake was given a name – Wessie (how clever) – and it began appearing everywhere … on T-shirts, memes, social media, billboards, tourism guides and the like.
The International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland was swamped with questions and now has a piece of the snakeskin on display and an exhibit case ready for the full skin. Oh, and you can still get “Where’s Wessie” T-shirts there too. As for proof that Wessie is still alive, director Loren Coleman is grateful for the publicity but skeptical that it will be found.
"That’s kind of what happens with mystery animal stories. They go from being very active factual sightings to becoming part of the folklore of the area. That’s what happened to Wessie."
That’s a nice way of saying that the snake is probably frozen at the bottom of the Presumpscot River or hidden inside a dam where it’s winter provisions for vengeful beavers. Media outlets like the Portland Press Herald agree with Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife biologist Derek Yorks.
"The snake probably didn’t make it past October. There are none of them that occur outside that (tropical) climate, so physiologically and ecologically, they don’t have any capacity to deal with winter."
Who does? However, when you don’t have arms and hands to put on a coat and gloves, you end up being yesterday’s frigid cryptid.
Will Wessie return? That depends on the news, says Loren Coleman.
"In a year when people have had to deal with a lot of news of terrorists and shootings and turmoil caused by the presidential race, people want some relief. What better than a giant mystery snake that can’t be caught?"
When the weather breaks, Westbrook residents better start watching for Wessie again.

Swedish Queen Says Royal Palace Haunted by "Friendly Ghosts"
The Queen of Sweden has claimed the royal palace where she resides is haunted.
Queen Silvia, 73, who has been married to the King of Sweden, Carl XVI Gustaf, for 40 years, claimed ghosts were haunting Drottningholm Palace in Stockholm County while being interviewed for a documentary.
When speaking to the Swedish public broadcaster, SVT, Queen Silvia said: "There are small friends... ghosts. They're all very friendly but you sometimes feel that you're not completely alone. It's really exciting. But you don't get scared."
Princess Christina, the king's sister, backed the claims of the Drottningholm phantoms.
"There is much energy in this house. It would be strange if it didn't take the form of guises," she said in the documentary.
"There's stories about ghosts in all old houses. They have been filled with people over the centuries. The energies remain."
Drottningholm Palace, which is on the UNESCO world heritage list, was built in the 1600s on Lovon island in Stockholm.
It is the permanent residence of the King and Queen, who is the daughter of a German businessman and a Brazilian woman.
