Has a Ghost Busted a Prince of Wales From the Past?

Her name was Maria Fitzherbert.

She lived 250 years ago.

She was the Prince of Wales’ mistress,

Or wife.

Depending on who you believe.

Parliament?

Or the Pope?

Parliament said no.

The Pope said yes.

For the ‘yes case’ the evidence seems to have been destroyed.

Of course.

I have paranormal evidence that could settle this.

If we’re prepared to consider paranormal evidence.

There’s a mystery.

A mystery from the past.

An historical cold case.

I have solved the case.

Many other have tried and failed.

Mine is a new angle.

A real ghost with a message.

Plus 3 other secret messages.

A paranormal secret,

Supported by tangible evidence.

New evidence that fell into my lap at a critical time in my life.

I was broke, living in an old caravan in the Aussie bush.

I’ve written the book so you can judge for yourself.

After reading my book it will no longer be a secret.

I followed the clues, the evolving mystery, across 5 countries.

At last you can read my secret revelations.

Which all started with a ghost.

You can buy the book here at ‘The Great Regency Cover-Up’.

“You have discerned an amazing story,” says Writer’s Digest.

“Readers will love this fun and entertaining manuscript,” says another review.

Read the 236-page book and decide for yourself.

And be entertained as well.

Love and peace.

Was This The Ghost of The Prince’s Mistress? Or Wife?

There has been an unsolved mystery, and closely guarded secret, from the time of George the Fourth, Prince of Wales.

Was he married to this Roman Catholic widow?

Legitimately.

And did they have children?

Legitimately.

Heirs to the throne of England.

Would this have changed the course of history?

Two hundred years or so later there have been many attempts to answer those questions.

None very convincingly.

Have I uncovered a somewhat more convincing case.

Re-opened by a ghost.

A ghost whose story I stumbled upon while living, broke, in an old caravan parked by the roadside in a country town in the Australian bush.

Which led me on an amazing adventure across five countries seeking answers to the cover-up.

Here’s my true and shocking paranormal story.

Paranormal, yes.

About a ghost, yes.

Leading to genuine historical evidence to support the yes and yes case.

I’ve written the book called ‘The Great Regency Cover-Up’.

Order your copy now and see for yourself.

Love and peace.

What Is In This Small Old Book of Lost Royal Secrets?

I found this old limited edition small book of lost Royal secrets in my local country library.

I couldn’t believe my luck.

There it was in front of me among all the other quite ordinary library books.

But it was smaller that the rest.

This old book must have been sitting there for 40 years.

Unloved and unwanted.

The title seemed uninviting.

Who would ever have even picked it up, I thought.

‘The Chaplain: Being Some Further Account of the Days of Bobby Knopwood.’

Who was Bobby Knopwood?

I knew.

But who else would know?

Would you?

Probably not.

He was the Reverend Robert Knopwood, the first chaplain of Tasmania.

I knew from the research I’d been doing for my book and so, for me, it was a rare find.

And that’s how it turned out to be.

Here was the perfect story to introduce my historical romantic paranormal true mystery I had started.

What a find.

I’ll use an extract for my Introduction, I thought.

It’ll set the scene for the bigger picture I had to tell.

Just what I’d been looking for.

Now my book is done and you can buy it here.

In just a few paragraphs the author, Mabel Hookey, related her story of a local Doctor and his wife who were sent from England to the antipodes, Van Diemens Land (Tasmania), on condition that they never returned to England and they never divulged their secret that kept them from returning.

They were believed to receive a mysterious secret regular pension provided they stayed in the new homeland in the early days of the new penal colony.

Why?

There were rumours that he was physician to the King and she was Lady in Waiting to the Queen.

What was their secret?

Nobody ever knew.

Even the author didn’t know.

I know.

The little limited edition book has since disappeared from the library, from the shelves, the catalogue, every record.

Read my book and learn their secret here.

The Ghost Who Fooled Everyone.

She was Florence’s companion for five years. That is, until Florence started at school then she mysteriously disappeared.

Seems like, she was a ghost who had fooled everyone.

To Florence she was her granny.

She was her friend and companion for the first five years of her life.

I think Granny Fitz was her only friend for those formative years.

Then she just disappeared.

Had she died?

Florence had assumed so.

But no.

Recently Florence decided to look into the family history and research her family tree.

When she tried to find her favourite granny there were her official records.

No trouble.

So she went looking for her gravestone which was located at the Melbourne Cemetery.

Success.

But there was a problem.

It seems like Granny Fitz died seventeen years before she was alive and well as Florence’s childhood companion.

Was she a ghost then?

Together Florence and I went though every other granny in her family, every relative, every family name, nut no Granny Fitz.

Was it a false name?

Was it a friend?

Was she a nanny?

To Florence it was none of the above.

I looked her straight in the eye and asked, who was Granny Fitz?

And she replied, quite annoyed with me for even asking, Granny Fitz was my companion.

So who was she?

Was the answer in her name?

Did she have a secret?

Was this really a ghost with a secret?

I think so.

I’ve set out the whole case for an explosive answer to that question.

There was a mystery here.

And I’m on to it.

See for yourself in my autobiographical book ‘Man Steps Off Planet’.

Read the rave reviews first here.

It’s a book full of twists and turns.

And a real romantic historical mystery.

How a Ghost From The Past Led Me To Investigate a True Royal Mystery.

I didn’t see it coming.

“I always thought it strange my Granny Fitz never ate at the dinner table,” Florence told me, “You see, she was dead.”

Seems that Florence’s dear childhood friend Granny Fitz was probably a ghost.

What do you think?

I’d called in to visit my mother on my way home from the city late one afternoon when I l lived in Melbourne and worked from home as a freelance advertising copywriter.

I thought I was making a social visit to learn the latest gossip about the family but I was in for a shock.

As Florence greeted me at the door, eyes watering and cheeks flushed, she looked like she’d seen a ghost.

I think she had.

She’d been researching the family tree.

So when she came to check the birth and death details of her childhood companion at the Melbourne Cemetery she got rather more than she expected.

According to the information on the gravestone her Granny Fitz had died seventeen years before Florence was born.

Interesting.

What royal secret did Granny Fitz bring beyond the grave with her?

Where did my investigations lead, what major historical characters were revealed from this simple fact?

And what unexpected historical territory did I enter when I started to follow the trail that Granny, or Mrs Fitz, left for me?

Read this amazing mystery for your self in my book ‘Man Steps Off Planet’.

Best wishes,

Neil

My Spiritual Adventure Across 5 Countries

The author in San Remo on the Italian Riviera

Just when I thought my life was over the files to an explosive historical secret landed in my lap.

A secret that was asking to be told.

Well okay, I thought, I was a writer looking for a project and a story looking for a writer looking for a project.

Here was an adventure looking for someone who could not resist an adventure.

I was unemployed, homeless, penniless and friendless at the time.

My freelance copywriting business of some 10 years had just been declared bankrupt and I had lost everything. (Read more about me HERE.)

I was living alone in an old caravan parked outside its owner’s home in the Australian bush with all my worldly possessions crammed inside.

Then everything changed.

What was going on?

The files revealed the life of a granny who had died 17 years earlier than she was last seen.

Which meant she was a ghost.

My curiosity was piqued and I started on a journey to learn her secret.

Then there were the 3 hidden messages which all came together for the first time and found to have significant links to each other.

And to the past.

When deciphered, they revealed a possible blood link between George IV and an unsung hero from the early days of British settlement of Australia around 1800.

Here’s a clue as to his identity: he was Commander of a famous sailing ship which was more recently replicated and is today sailing the Seven Seas as one of the Tall Ships.

You can read where the clues led me and the supporting historical evidence in my book ‘Back to the Wall’.

My travels with nothing included 6 months in exciting New York and 4 months in romantic Italy in my search for answers.

For someone down on his luck this was a truly romantic world adventure across 5 countries that could not possibly have happened without a little, how shall I say, outside help.

Call it coincidence if you like. Carl Jung would have called it ‘synchronicity’.

You decide.

When the adventure ended I returned to write the story in ‘Back to the Wall’.

Read my adventure for yourself – HERE.

It’s a great read, a real page-turner, I promise.

Best wishes.

Neil
