One of his other predictions was scarily accurate

A rediscovered interpretation of the prophecies of a famous French astrologer claims that King Charles III won’t be lasting that long on the thrown, and Prince Harry could instead take his place.

Nostradamus, the 16th century astrologer, has long attracted attention for seemingly predicting events such as the Iraq War, the 2008 Global Financial Crisis and even 9/11.

And one author’s interpretation of the astrologer’s 447-year-old predictions has seen some royal claims come to light too.

Mario Reading, an author and expert on 16th century astrologer Nostradamus, wrote books that reinterpreted Nostradamus’s predictions from hundreds of years ago.

A book that Reading wrote back in 2005, which looked at some of Nostradamus’s predictions, suggested Charle’s divorce from Princess Diana would see huge disapproval, forcing him to abdicate.

It also claimed that “a man who never expected to become king” could do so, leading people to believe this could be Prince Harry or Simon Dorante-Day – an Australian who claims to be the secret son of King Charles and Camilla.

While some will naturally be sceptical about such fortunes, some of Reading’s other interpretations of Nostradamus’s predictions have actually been scarily accurate.

In his book, the author said: “The preamble is that Queen Elizabeth II will die, circa 2022, at the age of around ninety-six, five years short of her mother’s term of life.”

The author sadly died in 2017, meaning he was unable to see the accuracy of his interpretation, though readers are still fascinated by his interpretations that are yet to be proved, and are eager to see how they play out.

Reading pondered on the term “King of the Islands,” used in one of Nostradamus’s prophetic poems, suggesting it described how most of the Commonwealth will be broken away by the time Charles becomes king, leaving the realm confined to the British Isles.

“Prince Charles will be seventy-four 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,” Reading wrote.

The author initially claimed that King Charles’s old age could force him to abdicate and see Prince William become king, but in his second book, his claims branched out further.

Considering Nostradamus’s line “a man will replace him who never expected to be king”, Reading questioned: “Does that mean that Prince William, who would have expected to succeed his father, is no longer in the picture?”

It was over two years ago that Prince Harry stepped back from royal duties and moved to the US to be with Meghan, where they now raise their two children, Archie and Lilibet. Despite this, Harry is still fifth in line to the throne.

Alternatively, Simon Dorante-Day, 56, could be an alternative.

Speaking to 7 News Australia, the self-claimed royal son said: “It’s certainly food for thought, because the prediction makes it clear that someone out of left field would replace Charles as king. I can see why some people would think I fit the bill. I believe I am the son of Charles and Camilla and I’m looking forward to my day in court to prove this.

“Maybe Nostradamus has the same understanding that I do, that all this will come out one day.”

One thing is for certain – only time will tell…
