Prince Harry is the Antichrist.
The claim has circulated for years, but took off again recently when Prince Harry stepped down from the Royal Family.
Many social media users rely on convoluted math formulas and charts to try and prove Prince Harry is the Antichrist.
Misbar’s investigation found that Prince Harry is probably not the Antichrist.
The Christian New Testament directly mentions the Antichrist only three times: I John 2.18-27, I John 4.1-6, and 2 John 7. These passages say that the Antichrist is coming and that he denies the existence of God and Jesus.
However, Prince Harry is a confirmed Anglican. His wife, Meghan Markle, even converted to the Church of England before their marriage. The couple baptized their child, Archie Harrison, at Windsor Castle. Prince Harry’s continued involvement in the church implies that he does not deny the existence of God and Jesus.
The Bible also discusses a persecutory figure that many conflate with the Antichrist. In Revelations, this figure is called the “Beast from the Abyss" and “the Beast from the Sea.” According to Revelations, the number of the Beast is 666.
Many of the claims that Prince Harry is the Antichrist stem from what Misbar’s team can best describe as fuzzy math connecting Prince Harry to the number 666. For example, one of the claims says that Prince Harry is the Antichrist because he has six names, therefore invoking the number of Beast (or at least one of the numbers of the Beast). However, Prince Harry’s full name is Henry Charles Albert David. He has never used the surname Mountbatten-Windsor.
Further, the Antichrist will allegedly “produce great signs and omens” as well as “wonders.” While there is still time for Prince Harry to start producing these, as of yet he seems like a fairly normal person. He did describe having a child as being “magic,” but since many people have children that hardly qualifies as a great sign, omen, or wonder.
Prince Harry has also publicly stated that he wants to “break the cycle” of the “pain and suffering” of growing up in the Royal Family for his children. Based on popular descriptions of the Antichrist as delighting in other people's pain, it seems that he would not try to actively stop the pain and suffering of others.
Further, most of the conceptions about the Antichrist come from medieval texts, not the Bible. This means that even for those who believe the Bible is non-fiction, most of their ideas about the Antichrist would still stem from fictional sources.
Since it seems highly unlikely that Prince Harry is the Antichrist, but since we cannot prove it definitively, we rate this claim as suspicious.
