Capricorn arises on the eastern horizon with a deeply exalted Mars which is accompanied by atmakaraka Jupiter. Atmakaraka rising in lagna or navamsa indicates royal births(though not always as sometimes it might just be individuals having bearings like royal personages.) This union of Jupiter and Mars is in itself a powerful combination and it is present in 9 out of 16 prime divisional charts in this nativity! As I indicated in case of Aurangzeb royal personages often indicate peculiarities in divisional charts. Also examine powerful cancellation of debility of Jupiter as it’s with a planet which is in deeply exalted in a Kendra house. Moreover, lagna lord Saturn which is retrograde(by virtue of which it becomes even more of a benefic) and also sign lord of Jupiter aspects it fully from Labha bhava. 

There are two debilitated planets here-Mercury and Jupiter still their debilitation is cancelled. A similar cancellation of debility is seen in Barack Obama’s chart with Capricorn ascendant hosting Jupiter and Saturn. In this nativity we observe Moon in its own sign along with exalted Sun in the fourth house. Thus exalted Sun occupies tenth house of highest public visibility from Chandra lagna–making her a great celebrity. Jupiter, Mars, Sun and Moon occupy kendra houses which are source of power and influence thus she had enjoyed great power all her life. Deeply exalted Mars has about 50% directional strength and forms a doubly powerful Ruchaka Yoga from ascendant as well as Chandra lagna. Jupiter has full directional strength and creates powerful Gaja-Keshari Yoga giving her noble attributes.

Rahu and Ketu occupying their own houses in sixth and 12th houses is a powerful combination and they are in vargottamamsha as they occupy same signs in navamsha chart as well. 5 planets in exaltation/own houses is a great Raja Yoga especially for a royal scion.
