Simon Dorante-Day, a man born in the United Kingdom and then relocated to Australia, is sure: he is the hidden child of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles. To support his theory, the 50-year-old posted on his Facebook page a photo of his 14-year-old son, a carbon copy of Queen Elizabeth II, according to him.
He persists and signs. Simon Dorante-Day, a 55-year-old Australian citizen, insists he is the hidden son of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles. The 50-year-old, who regularly discusses his alleged kinship with the royal family on social media, recently posted a snapshot of his 14-year-old son, who was amazed by the striking resemblance to Queen Elizabeth II when she was young.
“I think the evidence speaks for itself.Every morning when the kids talk to me, the first thing I see is their faces so I can’t ignore that resemblance,” he explained on the Australian television show Sunrise. According to information relayed by the Daily Mail, Simon Dorante-Day, who was adopted in the United Kingdom by a British couple at 18 months, claims that his grandparents told him he worked as a cook and gardener for Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.
For the presenters of the Australian show, Simon Dorante-Day’s allegations are hard to believe, since he was born in 1966 and the meeting between Charles and Camilla dates back to the early 1970s. Convinced of his family ties to the future heir to the throne, Simon Dorante-Day does not intend to stop there. “I know it seems unlikely, but everything I say can be verified. I’m just a man looking for his biological parents and all roads led me to Camilla and Charles,” he said.
The justice system
While he has been collecting evidence for several years, Simon Dorante-Day, has also sent many letters to the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, all remained unanswered. Determined to have his relationship recognized, the father of nine even defended his case before the High Court of Australia. However, his legal claims have been rejected three times.
