Astrologers warn of rocky road

Arun Kumar Bansal, president of the All India Federation of Astrologers’ Societies, saw a mostly rosy future for the second in line to the throne and his wife-to-be, who announced they would marry next year.

“They match quite well. Together they score 24 points out of 36 on general compatibility,” he said after pouring over the couple’s astrological birth charts, which he said showed the benign influence of the planet Mercury.

“She has a softer personality than him. She will agree to his demands, and be accommodating of his needs. They will share a good friendship. They will not fight, in public or private — and Kate will conduct herself well in public.

The only cloud on the horizon, he said, was that the couple may struggle for years before they can conceive the next generation of Britain’s royalty.

One of Hong Kong’s top feng shui masters, Yeo Tinming, saw no such problems on the children front, predicting Middleton would likely get pregnant in 2012.

Another Hong Kong fortune-teller was less optimistic, saying the royal union would likely end in divorce — condemning the couple to the same fate as William’s parents Prince Charles and Princess Diana.
