In light of newly unearthed FBI files, sources close to Lord Mountbatten have admitted that he used to frequent “an upmarket gay brothel used by senior naval officers” in Rabat, Malta.
Lord Mountbatten served as the Commander-in-Chief of the Mediterranean Fleet in Malta during the 1950s. The decorated British war hero, and uncle to Prince Charles, was well-known for his sexual appetites and even admitted that he and his wife “spent all our married lives getting into other people’s beds.”
However, during research for his book ‘The Mountbattens: their Lives & Loves’, British Historian Andrew Lownie discovered FBI files which described the war hero as a “homosexual with a perversion for young boys.”
Lownie’s book also goes on to mention how Ron Perks, who was the Earl’s driver in Malta in 1948, spoke about how Mountbatten had one favoured destination, the Red House in Rabat, which he described as “an upmarket gay brothel used by senior naval officers.”
According to reports, Mountbatten was under US surveillance for more than three decades with FBI files dating back to February 1944, soon after Mountbatten had become supreme allied commander of southeast Asia.
He’s been described as being “erratic” and “an unfit man to direct any sort of military operations” by people close to him and his fondness of the ‘Red House in Rabat’ casts some serious doubt about his integrity and character.
