On August 27, 1979, Louis Mountbatten was on his boat “Shadow V” along with five family members and an employee. The Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA) detonated a bomb on the boat, killing Mountbatten and three others, injuring the rest. Eighteen UK soldiers were killed in another attack the same day.
The IRA considered Mountbatten a valid military target as part of the IRA’s war for independence and reunification. Within days of the bombing, in retaliation, the UK’s SAS murdered an IRA suspect unrelated to the bombing.
On August 20, 2019, seven days before the 40th anniversary of his death, files became public showing that the FBI knew Mountbatten was an alleged pedophile. Mountbatten was friends with Jimmy Savile in 1966, when he made Savile an honorary “admiral” in the British navy. Rumours abounded since then that Mountbatten was involved in Savile’s crimes against children, but nothing more concrete emerged until now.
Mountbatten was second cousin to Elizabeth and introduced her to his nephew, Philip. Hence, Elizabeth and Philip are third cousins. Mountbatten is also great uncle to prince Andrew, friend of Jeffrey Epstein and alleged participant in the latter’s criminal activities.
