Legendary astrologer Nostradamus has predicted that the Royal family will be finished once the Queen dies.
After a tumultuous week for the family following Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, online conspiracy theorists say writings point to the monarchy's dissolution.
In Nostradamus' written works, Century 8 Quatrain 97, he spoke of "great powers" changing and a "Kingdom growing no more".
A post share on conspiracy forum Above Top Secret reads: "At the end of the war the great powers change. Near the shore three beautiful children are born.
"Ruin to the people when they are of age. To change the country's Kingdom and see it grow no more.
"The three children refers to Prince William, Prince Henry and Princess Beatrice.
"Prince William was in fact born seven days after the end of the Falklands war.
"This predicts the end of the British monarchy and the beginning of a British republic happening very soon."
Nostradamus, full name Michel de Nostredame, was a French astrology alive in the 16th century.
He is famous for his prophecies supposedly predicting future events, and his followers believe he correctly predicted the rise of Adolf Hitler, the outbreak of World War Two and the Great Fire of London in 1666.
It has been a difficult week for the monarchy. Meghan and Harry's interview has been the TV event of the year so far and featured a range of accusations, including supposed concerns from one member of the family over their son Archie's skin tone and Meghan's claim that Kate Middleton made her cry.

Heir to the throne Prince Charles, who reportedly could not bring himself to watch the interview, has been next in the line of succession since he was just three years old.
It makes Charles, now 72, the longest-serving heir apparent in British history.
But some think Nostradamus' prediction means he will never get the opportunity to sit on the throne.
However sceptics believe the legendary figure's cryptic written passages are too vague to be considered genuine accounts of what will happen in the future.
Brian Dunning, a science writer and creator of the Skeptoid Podcast, said: "Nostradamus' writings are exploited in a number of fallacious ways.
"Ambiguous and wrong translations, 'creative' interpretations, hoax writings, fictional accounts, and the breaking of non-existent codes within his quatrains all contribute to a vast body of work, all of it wrong, and many times the size of everything Nostradamus ever actually wrote."
