Apparently, the leader of the British band The Cure, Robert Smith, predicted the date of the death of Queen Elizabeth II, a decade ago.

Recently, a video recorded in 2012 came to light in which the 63-year-old interpreter is heard saying that her Majesty would die on September 7.

Twitter users re-shared the clip after the sad news that Queen Elizabeth II had passed away “peacefully” at Balmoral on September 8 at the age of 96.

The video is part of an interview conducted during the German Hurricane music festival, in which the musician and the interviewer speak unkindly of the Royal Family.

As the interviewer states that the monarch is ‘as popular as ever’, Robert replies, “The queen is going to die on September 7, there will be a big uprising, and I will be made king.” The clip concludes with the singer saying, “Vote for me for king,” making the peace sign.

Despite the fact that the video was recorded ten years ago, users of social networks are still surprised by the predictions of the interpreter of ‘Boys Don’t Cry’. One fan wrote: “Can we talk about the fact that 10 years ago Robert Smith predicted that the queen would die on 7th September?”

All of Her Majesty’s children attended Balmoral after doctors said they were “concerned” about her health last Thursday. Hours later, the monarch died surrounded by her family.

“The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon,” a Buckingham Palace spokesman announced.
