Nostradamus predicted King Charles III will abdicate and Prince Harry will take throne
Nostradamus predicted King Charles III will be forced to abdicate and Prince Harry will ascend the throne, according to an author. The bizarre claims come from an interpretation of the French astrologer’s book Les Prophéties.
In the collection of 942 poems published in 1555, Michel de Nostradamus claims to predict future events.
Mario Reading, an author who wrote a book about Nostradamus in 2005, claimed in his work to have interpreted one of the poems to mean King Charles III will abdicate and the throne would pass to the Duke of Sussex and not the first in line, Prince William.
Mr Reading also claims Nostradamus pointed to the death of Queen Elizabeth II in another of his poems.
He writes in Nostradamus: Complete Prophecies for the Future: “The preamble is that Queen Elizabeth II will die, circa 2022, at the age of around 96, five years short of her mother’s term of life.
“Prince Charles will be 74 years old in 2022, when he takes over the throne.
“But the resentments held against him by a certain proportion of the British population, following his divorce from Diana, Princess of Wales, still persist.”
Mr Reading’s claim about Harry ascending the throne is based on his interpretation of a line which reads: “[A] man will replace him who never expected to be King”.
The author asks: “Does that mean Prince William, who would have expected to succeed his father, is no longer in the picture?”
“Prince Harry, by process of default, becomes King in his stead? That would make him King Henry IX, aged just 38.”
The late author also claims in his book that Nostradamus predicted many Commonwealth countries would break away during King Charles III’s reign.
This claim is based on a line from Nostradamus which mentions a “King of the Islands”.
Mr Reading’s book shot up to the top of the Sunday Times general paperbacks chart after the death of the Queen on September 8.
