As heir to the throne of his father, King Charles the III, William is now the Prince of Wales, and his wife Catherine is the new Princess of Wales. As hard as it is to grasp it, that title no longer belongs to Diana, Queen of Hearts.
And like Diana, though in a much different way, Catherine seems destined to be the beating heart of what must become the people’s royalty – if the British Monarchy is to survive at all.
It has always been William – the man – for Catherine, a woman who wanted a home in the country, a fancy AGA range cooker, kids, dogs and gardens. Her Venus in Aquarius tells us that she would follow her heart, whether it led to a cottage or a throne. Yet whatever William or Kate may have thought when they first met, Kate turned into Catherine, a wife who was also born to be a queen.
And if we are to be scrupulous in our astrological analysis, it must be noted that Kate’s Capricorn Sun would have noted with approval that a throne happened to come with this man…
We can see it all in Kate’s birth chart (equal house). It starts with an Ascendant at 19 degrees of the royal sign of Leo, raised to new heights of authority with a Sun in Capricorn, topped off most tenderly with a Moon in Cancer. Add to this her Venus and Mercury in Aquarius, and you have that slightly unorthodox, not quite predictable lady of fashion, royal family photographer, modern, edgy interests, and a lady with her heart in tune with the masses of Britain and, somewhat reservedly, the people of the world.
