Back in 2012 The Cure's Robert Smith predicted that Queen Elizabeth II would die on 7 September, just one day short of her actual death.

Robert Smith has never been a fan of the royal family, but it turns out he provided the closest prediction for Queen Elizabeth II's death date just over a decade ago.

During an interview at Hurricane Festival 2012 in Germany, Smith spoke about his dislike for the royal family, and said, "The Queen's gonna die on September 7th, and there'll be a huge uprising, and I'll be made King." Skip to 36:00 to hear Smith's prediction.
