Britain’s new King Charles 111 will be crowned on 6 May. Special preparations are underway in London for the coronation of King Charles 111 and Queen Camilla. More than 2,000 people will be presented as special guests.
The family of Britain’s new King has also had a relation with Mussoorie, because of which historian Gopal Bhardwaj has sent a letter congratulating King Charles 111. Earlier, Bhardwaj had congratulated Queen Elizabeth II of Britain on the completion of 70 years of her reign. Bhardwaj had also sent a letter to the private secretary of the Queen with the original copy of the horoscope of Queen Elizabeth prepared by his father RGR Bhardwaj.
He disclosed that, on 22 July, the Queen’s private secretary thanked him on behalf of the Queen by letter. He said it is a matter of pride for him that the Queen took cognizance of his letter and the horoscope made by his father. He recalled that his father was a scholar of astrology and had prepared the horoscope Queen Elizabeth II on 20 May, 1953, stating that her reign would be historic. She would rule in a peaceful manner and her life would also be long.
Bhardwaj added that Queen Elizabeth II was born on 21 April, 1926, at 2:40 a.m. at 17 Bruton Street, Mayfair, London. The horoscope was prepared on the basis of this information. He also recalled the association of the royal family with Mussoorie, with members having visited on occasions in the past.
Gopal Bhardwaj said that astrology has been practiced in his family for 500 years. He has the 300 year old birth chart of Sri Ramchandra, Krishna and Guru Nanak Dev. His father also made the horoscopes of Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Sardar Patel, Motilal Nehru, Madan Mohan Malaviya, etc., which he still possesses. He added that he has many important historical documents, which the government should preserve.
