William to ‘be king sooner than expected’ – psychic issues ominous warning to Charles

Queen beams at mention of Prince William in private chat

The Prince of Wales will inherit the throne when his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, either steps down or dies. However, Prince Charles has been warned that his son and heir, Prince William, could ascend to the throne sooner than expected, a TV psychic has claimed.

Deborah Davies, a psychic who stars in the Real Housewives of Cheshire, previously predicted the death of Prince Philip and a “new disease” ahead of the coronavirus pandemic.

And now, Ms Davies – who identifies as a psychic medium – went on to predict how she thinks William will be King sooner than people expect.

She predicted: “I also think William will be king sooner than people expect!”

Back in June, a poll found more than half of respondents would prefer Prince William to be the next King rather than his father.

The poll looked into what voters in four different EU countries think of the Royal Family and the monarchy.

And more than half of the Europeans who took part in the survey, 56 percent, said they would prefer Prince William to become the next British monarch rather than the Prince of Wales.

Only 18 percent of the surveyed chose Prince Charles when asked who they would like to see succeeding the Queen on the throne.

The results appeared to show Europeans sharing a similar sentiment with Britons when it comes to who should become King next.

A survey carried out by Deltapoll for the Mirror between 31 March and 1 April on 1,590 people showed nearly half, 47 percent, of the respondents want Prince William to ascend to the throne after the Queen.

Only 27 percent of the British adults polled named Prince Charles, who was invested Prince of Wales in 1969.

Moreover, 18 percent said there should be no monarch after the end of the Queen’s reign.

This survey was carried out on a total of 6,000 people – including 1,500 adults eligible to vote and living in France, 1,500 Spaniards, 1,500 Italians and 1,500 Germans.

The interviews were conducted online on June 7 with people based in France, Italy and Spain and on June 8 with German adults.

The research was conducted by Redfield & Wilton Strategies and commissioned by Euronews as part of its new ‘Feel Connected to Europe’ initiative.

In preparation for this new role, the Duke of Cambridge has been taking an interest in how his father has been administering the Duchy of Cornwall.

In a 2019 ITV documentary ‘Prince Charles: Inside the Duchy of Cornwall’, William spoke about how he had started to think about inheriting the Duchy, how he would administer it and the importance of family.

The Duke’s discussions over the succession reduced Prince Charles to tears, the Prince of Wales himself confessed during the documentary.

Over recent years, the Royal Family has been subjected to criticism over Prince Andrew’s former ties with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

Most recently, the Firm has faced huge backlash following Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The couple relocated to California with their son Archie and have since welcomed a daughter, Lilibet Diana.

In her latest prediction, Ms Davies also said Meghan Markle and Harry’s departure from the Firm could cause a rift between the couple.

She told the Daily Star: “I think Harry is missing the UK and his family, I think Meghan is steadfast that she won’t have anything to do with the UK and I think this will cause a divide between them.”

Hollie Doyle blog: Trueshan better than ever

Hollie Doyle gets back on board Trueshan and Glen Shiel as she looks to repeat last season’s double on Qipco British Champions Day.

Sky Sports Racing ambassador Hollie Doyle hopes to end another memorable season in style on Qipco British Champions Day on Saturday as the two horses that put her on the map at Ascot 12 months ago – Trueshan and Glen Shiel – return to defend their crowns.

Hero Trueshan ready for hat-trick bid

My hero TRUESHAN has everything in his favour in his bid to repeat last season’s unforgettable victory in the Group Two Qipco British Champions Long Distance Cup (1.25) at Ascot.

He looked better than ever when demolishing a strong field including Stradivarius in the Group One Qatar Prix du Cadran on Arc weekend and has come out of that race in flying form.

Trueshan thrives on the easy ground he’ll get at Ascot and it’s a great feeling to be back on him just two weeks after missing out on that amazing performance through suspension.

Now a dual Group One winner, Alan King’s five-year-old seems to be reaching new peaks with every run. He’s a versatile, uncomplicated horse as he proved at Longchamp and when winning the Group One Goodwood Cup.

It goes without saying that Stradivarius is the obvious danger. He’s a legend in the true sense of the word and can never be under-estimated, even though my lad beat him emphatically last time and on Champions’ Day last year.

Latest Racing Stories

William Haggas’s Hamish is interesting. He comes to the race fresh and will also like the ground, though Trueshan beat him fairly and squarely in a conditions race at Newbury when they last met two years ago before taking his form to the highest level.

Headgear may be key to Glen Shiel revival

GLEN SHIEL, the horse who gave me my first ever Group One victory in the most dramatic circumstances, returns to the scene of that last-gasp triumph when he defends his crown in the Qipco British Champions Sprint Stakes (2.00) at Ascot.

His trainer Archie Watson has declared him in blinkers for the first time in the hope of sharpening him up for a wide-open renewal.

A seven-year-old now, Glen’s a very laid-back individual who has become a bit lazy, but still possesses plenty of ability.

Indeed, a repeat of his second in testing ground in the Diamond Jubilee over the same course and distance back in June would be good enough to win this.

Dream Of Dreams, who beat him only narrowly that day, and this season’s July Cup winner Starman have both been retired so I’m not overly worried about the opposition.

It’s all about the way Glen acquits himself on the day. He’s still one of the top-rated runners in the line-up, has his favoured conditions and simply loves Ascot.

Watch every race of British Champions Day live on Sky Sports Racing on Saturday as the flat season reaches a dramatic finale

I wouldn’t have minded being drawn a bit higher but at least I’ll be racing away from two of the key pace angles in Art Power and Highfield Princess, which should allow me to do my own thing from over on the far side.

Glen looked in great shape when I saw him at Archie’s this week so I’m naturally hopeful of another big performance, particularly if the headgear has the desired effect.

Excited about latest O’Brien link up

One of the highlights of my season has been the opportunity to ride for Aidan O’Brien and Coolmore at some of the big meetings so I’m really excited to be back on board LA JOCONDE in the Group One Qipco British Champions Fillies’ and Mares’ Stakes (3.25) at Ascot.

This will be the third time I’ve ridden the daughter of Frankel, who made the running for Ballydoyle’s star filly Snowfall in the Yorkshire Oaks and the Prix Vermeille.

She stuck on gamely to finish third in both those top-level races, proving what a capable filly she is, so I’m hopeful I can use her high cruising speed to keep up a good tempo and finish in the mix with the likely favourite Snowfall.

Teal’s Warrior back to form in nick of time

Roger Teal’s KENZAI WARRIOR couldn’t have rediscovered his form at a better time and can out-run his big odds in the closing Balmoral Handicap (4.30) over Ascot’s straight mile.

He gets into the valuable contest after incurring a penalty for his win on the All-Weather at Kempton Park last month and will appreciate the ease in the ground.

Kenzai Warrior was smart enough to win the Group 3 Horris Hill Stakes at Newmarket in heavy going at two, but it’s taken Roger a long time to get him back to something like his best. Fingers crossed for a big run.

Addeybb looks to win consecutive Champion Stakes

Addeybb may be tough to pass in Champion

I’m rooting for William Haggas’s globe-trotting star ADDEYBB in the Qipco Champion Stakes (3.25), as he’ll be ridden as usual by my fiancé Tom (Marquand).

But Tom aside, I genuinely think he’ll be tough to peg back over his optimum trip on ground that brings the best out of him.

Addeybb won this in the grittiest fashion last year and has the credentials to get the better of his illustrious rivals Mishriff and Adayar over this 10f in a classic renewal.

Palace Pier wins the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot

Stick with Pier in QEII

Another mouth-watering duel will be served up in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes (3.10), which brings together Europe’s top miler PALACE PIER and the young pretender Baaeed, who puts an unbeaten record on the line.

John and Thady Gosden’s superstar Palace Pier must concede three pounds to his younger rival, but doesn’t have any chinks in his armour and is impossible to oppose on what looks a perfect stage.

Baaeed has all the hallmarks of a champion – he’s a Group 1 winner now – and I’d like to see him win for the Haggas team, but he faces the ultimate test.

Group One win my season’s highlight

As another Flat season reaches its official climax, I can look back with a lot of satisfaction, hoping I have another chapter or two still to add.

My Group One win in the Qatar Goodwood Cup on Trueshan was the obvious highlight, but my Royal Ascot win on Amtiyaz for my boss Imad Alsagar was very special.

I’m delighted to be sitting fifth in the jockeys’ table going into Champions Day, with 86 winners from close on 600 rides.

My prize money of over £1.6m has surpassed last season’s total, too.

After Saturday, I’ll be keeping busy on the All-Weather all winter, but I’m looking forward to riding at some of the big meetings overseas in the new year.
