A book reinterpreting the poems of 16th Century French astrologer Nostradamus is flying off the shelves after it appeared to correctly predict the Queen's death.

Nostradamus: The Complete Prophecies for the Future is a 2005 release from an expert on the psychic, Mario Reading.

Reading's work analyses Les Propheties, a hard-to-interpret book of poems written by Nostradamus in 1555. Les Propheties is made up of 942 poetic quatrains that allegedly predict real world events.

According to Reading, Nostradamus predicted the exact age and year the Queen would die.

"The preamble is that Queen Elizabeth II will die, circa 2022, at the age of around ninety-six, five years short of her mother’s term of life," the author said.

Reading also thought Nostradamus predicted that King Charles will abdicate and make way for "a man who never expected to become king" to take the throne.

“Because they disapproved of his divorce, a man who later they considered unworthy; The People will force out the King of the islands; A Man will replace who never expected to be king,” Nostradamus wrote according to Reading’s interpretation.

Some have said this might be referring to Prince Harry or even Australian Simon Dorante-Day, who claims to be the secret son of Charles and Camilla.

Sales of Reading's book have now boomed after news of his Queen prediction went viral on social media.

According to the Sunday Times, it has shot to the top of their bestsellers list with nearly 8,000 copies sold in the week ending September 17.

That is compared to only five copies sold the week before her death.

Sadly, Reading is no longer alive to witness his sudden success, having died in 2017 aged 63.

Nostradamus is said to have made his prophecies whilst high on nutmeg, which causes hallucinations when taken in large doses. He would look at visions in a basin of water before dictating them to his secretary.

Some of his supporters claim he predicted other events like the Great Fire of London, Napoleon’s rise, the Apollo moon landings and the 9/11 terror attacks.
