At this point, you may think you’re a royal family expert. Between Meghan and Harry’s wedding and William and Kate’s children grabbing all the headlines, the family certainly seems to be everywhere. But, did you know that the Queen and Prince Charles are doomed to never get along? It’s true because it’s written in the stars.* Here’s what else we know about the royal family’s zodiac signs via Horoscope.com.
Queen Elizabeth: Taurus (and Year of the Tiger)
Born on April 21, 1926, the Queen just barely falls into the Taurus category, which begins on April 20. She truly couldn’t be more representative of her star sign, though.
“Smart, ambitious, and trustworthy, Taurus is the anchor of the Zodiac,” Horoscope.com explained. “Amazing friends, colleagues, and partners, Taureans value honesty above all else and are proud that their personal relationships tend to be drama free.” Her only potential downside is that Taurus is typically known for being “stubborn,” which is probably why nobody in the royal family is allowed to eat garlic.
Prince Charles: Scorpio (and Year of the Rat)
Born November 14, 1948, Charles falls firmly in the Scorpio category. And, like his mother, he perfectly fits the bill.
“Passionate, independent, and unafraid to blaze their own trail no matter what others think, Scorpios make a statement wherever they go,” Horoscope.com said. “They love debates, aren't afraid of controversy, and won't back down from a debate. They also hate people who aren't genuine, and are all about being authentic—even if authentic isn't pretty.”
Prince William: Cancer (and Year of the Dog)
On June 21, 1982, Prince William entered the world, making him a Cancer. If you’re a member of the royal family you may not want to try to sneak anything by him because Cancers are reportedly psychic.
“Most Cancers have been called psychic at some point, and with good reason—Cancer can often intuit relationships, ideas, and motivations before anyone has actually spoken,” Horoscope.com wrote. “That can make for challenging interactions with this sign—Cancer hates small talk, especially when it contains white lies (like saying, ‘How nice to see you!’ when it's clear that both parties would rather avoid each other). That's why social gatherings can be overwhelming for Cancers. They'd much rather spend time in small groups where everyone is on the same page.”
Kate Middleton: Capricorn (and Year of the Dog)
Kate Middleton was born on January 9, 1982, meaning she’s a Capricorn through and through.
“Smart, hardworking, and fully in control of their destiny, a Capricorn will always get what they set their mind to, in both personal and professional life—no excuses,” Horoscope.com said, which makes sense for a smarty pants like Kate, who graduated school with honors. “Capricorns may get a reputation as stubborn, but they simply know what they want, and also know how they wish other people would behave.”
Prince Harry: Virgo (and Year of the Rat)
On September 15, 1984, Prince Harry joined the royal family. And that means he came in on the tail end of the Virgo sign. Though, at least from the outside, he looks to fit the sign quite nicely.
“Smart, sophisticated, and kind, Virgo gets the job done without complaining. Virgos are amazing friends, always there to lend a hand and also lend advice,” Horoscope.com said, rather perfectly explaining the charity-loving Harry. “Practical Virgos are incredibly adept at big picture thinking, and planning out their life, their vacations, and what they're going to do today isn't a drag it makes them feel in control and secure.”
Meghan Markle: Leo (and Year of the Rooster)
Meghan, the newest member of the royal family, was born on August 4, 1981, making her a Leo.
“Bold, intelligent, warm, and courageous, fire sign Leo is a natural leader of the Zodiac, ready to blaze a trail, vanquish injustice, and make a name for themselves along the way,” Horoscope.com said, nearly perfectly explaining Meghan’s place as the change maker of the monarchy. “Blessed with high self-esteem, Lions know that they possess enviable traits—and they're proud of them. They don't believe in false modesty and will be the first to praise themselves for a job well done. But Leo isn't self-aggrandizing or unwilling to roll up those sleeves and do the work: this sign knows that in order to be respected and admired, he or she needs to put in the effort worthy of a leader.”
*OK, so they probably aren’t doomed, they are mother and son after all.
