Prince Harry is currently the sixth in line to the British throne, but a Nostradamus prophecy suggests that he will be the one to ascend the throne when Queen Elizabeth II dies. The reputed French seer made prophecies about the royal family 500 years ago, around the same time he accurately predicted the rise of Adolf Hitler, the dawn of World War II and the Great Fire of London.

Nostradamus prophesied that the fortune of the 34-year-old Duke of Sussex could significantly change in the near future as he becomes the King of England, sidestepping his father, Prince Charles, and his brother, Prince William. According to him, Prince Harry’s crowning will be enjoined by a court order. While it will be met with much skepticism by the British public, he will eventually be able to win their support because of his charm.

YouTube channel 2 Minute Facts discussed the bizarre prophecy. “Adding to the satchel of prophecies is the prophecy of a new King on the throne. Wondering who this might be?” the narrator said. “Well, opening the doors of suspense, Prince Harry, the youngest son of Prince Charles and Princess Diana is supposed to be the next King sitting on the throne of Hales.”

According to the prophecy, the youngest heir who is least proficient and capable of the throne will be the King of England following Queen Elizabeth’s reign. If Nostradamus is right, then Prince Harry’s ascension to the throne will destroy the current order of royal succession.

In the event Queen Elizabeth II dies, the Prince of Wales, Prince Charles, should be crowned king. Second in the order of royal succession is Prince Charles’ eldest son, Prince William, and then his children — Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. All these royals need to be kings and queens first before Prince Harry, the sixth in line, becomes king.

It is interesting to know how Prince Harry will react to this prophecy, considering that he once suggested that none of the royals wanted to be the next king or queen. “Is there anyone in the Royal Family who wants to be King or Queen? I don’t think so, but we will carry out our duties at the right time,” he said.
