A book interpreting the prophecies of 16th-century French astrologer Nostradamus is flying off the shelves after it apparently predicted the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

The book “Nostradamus: Complete Prophecies of the Future” was published in 2005 and is an interpretation of the “Prophecies” of Nostradamus, a collection of poetic prophecies. The book, written by Mario Reading, has sold more than 8,000 copies since September 17, up from five in the week before the Queen’s death, according to The Sunday Times.

Reading’s interpretation of one of the poems is reported to read: “Queen Elizabeth II will die at about 22, aged about 96.”

According to Reading, Nostradamus also predicts that King Charles III abdicates throne because of “grievance against him by a certain part of the British population after his divorce from Diana, Princess of Wales”.

Reading’s claim is related to the section of Nostradamus’ work that discusses the “King of the Isles”.

“Because they did not approve of his divorce, a man whom they later considered unworthy; The people will drive out the King of the Isles; A man will replace the one who never expected to become a king, ”says Nostradamus in the work.

Reading’s interpretation ultimately concludes that Prince Harry will take the throne upon the abdication of Charles III.
