The famous French fortune teller Nostradamus is believed to have made four chilling predictions for 2024.

When looking to the future, there’s one name you can rely on.

Michael de Nostradame, better known as Nostradamus, offered us some surprisingly accurate predictions all the way back in the 16th century.

Over the years, the internet has been blown away by the accuracy of his prophesies, including his 2023 revelations

And now, it’s been revealed that Nostradamus has made another four chilling predictions for 2024.

Nostradamus’s infamous book, ‘Les Prophéties’, contained all of his fortune tellings, but didn’t reference specific years, leaving some room for interpretation.

However, believers in Nostadramus reference his predictions of the rise of Adolf Hitler and JFK’s assassination as proof of the validity of his ‘gift’, as per

So, based on his writings, here are the biggest news stories to expect in 2024:

1. A new pope?

Nostradamus writes: “Through the death of the very old Pontiff / A Roman of good age will be elected.”

It’s true that Pope Francis, who is currently 87 years old, is not in the greatest of health.

Nostradamus also points out that the new pope will lead for a long time, but will ‘weaken his see’.

The definition of the word ‘weaken’ is up for debate, but it seems as though the new Catholic leader may be about to face some turbulent times after his rise to power.

Either way, it’s all eyes on the pope for 2024!

2. Royal problems

It’s safe to say the past few years have been rather tumultuous for the royal family.

From Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s headline-grabbing departure from their titles to the deaths of Prince Philip and then Queen Elizabeth II, you might expect 2024 to be the year things finally settle down for the royals.

However, if Nostradamus is anything to go by, that simply will not be the case.

Nostradamus references a leader he calls the ‘King of the Isles’, who has had a controversial divorce and who is ‘driven out by force’.

This ‘King of the Isles’ could certainly refer to King Charles, which has led some to believe he’ll be forced to abdicate at some point in the next year.

It’s been theorised that ‘persistent attacks on both himself and his second wife’ will force King Charles to step down.

Even more surprisingly, it’s Prince Harry – the man who has ‘no mark of a king’ – who’s predicted to take the crown as opposed to Prince William.

While this does seem a little far-fetched, stranger things have happened with the royals…

3. A war with China

There’s been a lot of fear about China’s rise to a global superpower in recent years.

Tensions between China and the USA are particularly high, with many comparing things to the Cold War.

And it seems Nostradamus predicts this may become more serious in 2024.

He wrote that the ‘Red adversary will become pale with fear / Putting the great Ocean in dread’.

The ‘red’ could be an allusion to Communist China, and the ‘great Ocean’ the Pacific, which lies between China and the US.

China also boasts an impressive military, making an attack by sea seem even scarier!

4. Climate disaster

It doesn’t take a fortune teller to see that climate change is a scary reality.

But according to Nostradamus, we could expect to see things come to a head in the next 12 months.

‘The dry earth will grow more parched, and there will be great floods,” he predicts.

He also makes mention of a ‘very great famine through pestiferous wave’, suggesting tsunamis could destroy agriculture leading to food shortages in 2024.

It doesn’t sound like we have much to look forward to in 2024!

We guess… there’s always next year?
