Astrologers predict baby will run for office
Britain's royal baby may be born to rule as third in line to the throne, but Indian mystics made the intriguing prediction that the new prince will one day stand for elected office.
Taking his date, time and place of birth -- 4:24 pm in London on Monday -- two fortune-tellers in Mumbai have separately charted a much more politically active destiny than that of recent British monarchs, whose job is largely ceremonial.
“Maximum by 2044 he may make politics a career and start contesting elections,” said astrologer Raj Kumar Sharma, adding, “I’m seeing very strong changes in the monarchy,” he said.
The future king ‘may break some rules, he may be known for doing something not happening in the last 200 years’, he added.
Another mystic and healer, Larra Shah, said he would run in an election for Prime Minister ‘and will probably win it’.
“Being a king or prince will not matter to him,” she said, explaining he would want to work for the good of the people. “He will be very politically inclined,” she said.
The prince will also improve British relations with other countries, especially Arab ones, she predicted. Shah said the royal, influenced by the hot planet Mars, would be extremely intelligent, a multi-tasker, romantic and flirtatious.
“Physically he could be a little big and maybe on the plumper side at some point. He will love food and luxuries, not to mention women,” she said.
Sharma predicted that the as-yet-unnamed prince would live a long life and marry early -- by the age of 26 -- and have three children.
Both fortune-tellers said the prince was born on a very lucky day -- a full moon. Another well-known Indian astrologer Bejan Daruwalla predicted that the prince would be an ‘understanding’ king.
“At his age of 22 he will be having a very good time,” he added, without elaborating.
