Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle announced their engagement on Monday morning, as well as announcing that the two would be getting married sometime next year.
As you can imagine, the announcement attracted quite a bit of attention from the media. But one article by The Telegraph received more attention than most. The British newspaper asked handwriting expert, a face reader, an astrologer, a numerologist, and a relationship counselor how long the couple's marriage would last.
For reference, a numerologist is someone who believes that life works in cycles, "and by interpreting the numbers one to nine within these cycles, numerologists can gain insights into our personalities and relationships - using just a name, and a place of birth."
Unsurprisingly, people were somewhat confused by all the pseudoscience.
What a terrible article to write or even contemplate when a young couple are embarking on their life together— SandraSixty (@Sandra55) November 28, 2017
Jesus Christ!! Leave them alone. I’m not a fan of the Royals, but look what your lot did to his Mother— Mark Kelly (@Markkelly63) November 28, 2017
this is pretty lowball. to bury clickbait into premium content that discusses the chance of divorce of a high level couple that isn't even married yet. this isn't journalism worth paying for. it's not even journalism.— Future Looks Good (@analoguepilot) November 28, 2017

Sensationalism. It is uncivilised and stupid to ask. There is also no expert knowledge— Roel Prins (@RoelPrins1) November 28, 2017

For gods sake give them a chance to at least get married before you start to end it.— Anthony John Prince (@tonyp8886) November 28, 2017
