Nostradamus's books have sold like hotcakes after he predicted the demise of Queen Elizabeth II.

After appearing to foretell the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, a book interpreting the prophecies of 16th-century French astrologer Nostradamus is flying off the shelves.

Nostradamus' collection of poetic prophesies, "Les Propheties," is the subject of the 2005 book "Nostradamus: The Complete Prophecies for the Future."

According to The Sunday Times, the book, written by Mario Reading, has sold more than 8,000 copies since September 17.

One of the poems, according to Reading's interpretation, predicts that Queen Elizabeth II would pass at around the age of 96.

Nostradamus also foresees King Charles III abdicating the throne because of "resentments held against him by a significant part of the British populace,

 following his divorce from Diana, Princess of Wales," according to Reading.

Nostradamus' work has a passage about a "king of the islands," which is where Reading's assertion is related.

Reading's analysis ultimately comes to the conclusion that Prince Harry will succeed to the throne after Charles III abdicates.
