Indian mystics: Royal baby will stand for elected office

Crowds of people try to look at a notice formally announcing the birth of a son to Britain's Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, placed in the forecourt of Buckingham Palace, in central London July 22, 2013.

MUMBAI, Maharashtra - Britain's royal baby may be "born to rule" as third in line to the throne, but Indian mystics Tuesday 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 stargazers 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. "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 holistic healer, Larra Shah, said he would run in an election for president or 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.
