With six planets in Water signs, the new prince will be sensitive and emotional - definitely in touch with his feelings. The Sun, Mercury, Mars and Jupiter are all in the sign of Cancer giving him a strong sense of family loyalty and a deep need to help others. He will respect his family's heritage, his country's traditions, and his own place in history.
Born under the influence of a Water Grand Trine - a very rare major planetary configuration which hasn't occurred since the mid-1920s - the new prince will be swamped by very powerful feelings. Instinct, intuition and perception will be a driving force in his attitude to life. He will be idealistic, imaginative and compassionate.
It's always interesting that, in families, people are connected astrologically, almost as if certain patterns in the parents' charts are 'inherited' - or at least reflected - in the charts of their children. The new prince is a Cancerian like his father, William - and also like his late grandmother, Diana. He was born during a Cancer/Capricorn Full Moon - just like his mother, Catherine.
The prince's natal Sun is in a positive trine aspect to his Ascendant. This indicates that he will be happy, likeable and popular. With his Ascendant in the sign of Scorpio, the prince will posses great inner strength and willpower. He will have a radiant personality which will enable him to reach out and influence many people.
Born when the Moon was in the sign of Capricorn, the prince could be quite shy and reserved during his childhood. He will be very sensitive to other people's opinions of him and he will constantly seek public approval.
Mercury in a square aspect to Uranus in the birth chart suggests quite an eccentric personality and also highly strung. However, in no way will this royal ever be considered 'out of touch' with modern attitudes and ideas as he will have a fascination with all things technological and scientific.
Mars in conjunction with Jupiter indicates someone who is open and direct, confident and decisive. A competitive outlook and great physical energy points to a love of sporting activities.
For the first time in many years, this newest member of the Royal Family will marry someone from another country. The new prince has an extremely dynamic chart and will become someone who, one day, will make revolutionary changes, not only within the royal household, but also throughout his kingdom.
