Craig Hamilton-Parker (born 24 January 1954) is a British self-styled psychic and New Age author, referred to by the popular press as the Prophet of Doom. He achieved notoriety for claiming to have predicting Brexit and the 2016 election of Donald Trump. Hamilton-Parker's predictions and claimed mediumship have been controversial and attracted criticism. He claimed to have contacted the spirit of Princess Diana, and has made erroneous predictions regarding world events such as a second term for Donald Trump.

Psychic predictions[edit]

Hamilton-Parker is known for his supposed prediction of two significant and unexpected events of 2016: the exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union, and the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States.[2] He has been referred to by news organizations, particularly tabloids, as "the man who predicted Brexit and Trump".[2][3] He also predicted that the post-Brexit economy of the United Kingdom would "thrive", with a strong pound and weak euro.[4] However, Hamilton-Parker's claim to predicting Brexit and Trump has been disputed. During the 2016 Republican primaries, he originally predicted Jeb Bush would win, and his predictions for the actual act of Britain leaving the European Union were several years ahead of schedule.[5]

Hamilton-Parker also claims to have predicted the COVID-19 pandemic, claiming in 2017 that a flu pandemic would sweep the world at some future point.[6] In 2019, he predicted that Theresa May would pass a Brexit deal on 29 March and immediately resign to be succeeded by Boris Johnson.[7] Prior to the 2020 United States presidential election, he predicted that Donald Trump would win a second term with "unexpected" states such as Florida and that Joe Biden would drop out of the primaries.[8]

Hamilton-Parker has been remarked for frequently making bleak and dystopian predictions.[2] He has been colloquially referred to as the "Prophet of Doom"[9] and the "new Nostradamus".[6] He has predicted the apocalypse, claiming that by the time the Sun expands into a red giant and consumes the Earth, "mankind will have evolved to realize that the only reality is consciousness, and that consciousness is rooted in the quantum world"; this would allow humans to transform into spiritually powerful "super-beings" capable of living inside the Sun.[10]

Mediumship[edit]

Hamilton-Parker is also a medium, someone who asserts they can channel and communicate with the deceased. His highest-profile demonstration of mediumship was in a 2003 television production for Living TV Group,[11] when he purportedly contacted the spirit of Princess Diana. The program was extensively cut for broadcast in the United Kingdom to comply with Independent Television Commission guidelines.[12] It was not aired in the UK, and was extensively criticized there, because the consent of the princess's sons was not sought,[11] and in the United States.[11][12] Hamilton-Parker, alongside his wife Jane, starred in the BBC 2 series Mediums: Talking to the Dead in 2004.[13]

Books[edit]

Hamilton-Parker has published fifteen books on New Age topics since 1995.[citation needed] His books have been popular within the Spiritualist community of Britain, with excerpts serialised in major subcultural columns such as Psychic News.[14]

Film and television appearances[edit]

In addition to Mediums: Talking to the Dead, Hamilton-Parker and his family appeared in the miniseries Our Psychic Family on The Biography Channel in 2008.[15] The Hamilton-Parker couple previously appeared on a Channel 4 morning show titled The Big Breakfast, where they would predict the news of the upcoming week.[citation needed]

Personal life[edit]

Hamilton-Parker has been married to his wife Jane, a fellow psychic, since 1987. They have two daughters and live in Eastleigh.[16]
