A man who was adopted as a child believes that he is the secret love child of Prince Charles and Camilla. He’s even gone to the lengths of launching a legal bid to force the heir to the throne to have a DNA test.
Simon Dorante-Day, 53, claims that when he went to file the papers at the high court in Australia the court clerks laughed. This is after three previous legal claims have been thrown out.
The engineer, who moved to Sydney after being adopted, is adamant that he knows the real story to his heritage and is refusing to give up his “40 year search for the truth”.
Simon was born in Gosport, Hampshire, and in April 1966 was adopted at 18-months-old by Karen and David Day.
He claims that his adoptive grandparents, Winifred and Ernest, once worked for the Queen and Prince Philip as a cook and gardener and that they told him “many times” that he was “Charles and Camilla’s child”.
If this bizarre claim is true, it would mean that he was conceived in 1965 – when Charles was 17 and Camilla was 18. It is understood that the couple met for the first time in their early 20s, in 1971.
Simon has posted several images on social media of himself as a young man next to photographs of Camilla and other members of her family in a desperate attempt to find some resemblance.
Previously he has stated: “I know it sounds unbelievable, but anything I say is check-able.
“I’m simply a man looking for my biological parents, and every road has led me back to Camilla and Charles.”
Just before Christmas, Simon filed papers and says they have been sent to the high court judge in Sydney to be reviewed and assessed.
He believes that the palace is aware of his legal action and he expects that the Queen is in a “panic” over the situation.
He is even convinced that Meghan and Harry’s decision to leave the royal family and the subsequent Sandringham crisis summit is all a “cover-up” to hide his secret birth.
He said: “While the whole world was thinking they were talking about Harry, we believe this legal battle would’ve also been on the agenda and discussed.
Simon added: It’s definitely the most significant step I’ve taken so far – I’ve had to force a deadline, hold them to date because we need answers.”
The British National, who refers to himself as “Prince Simon” online, has made claims on social media that he has “compelling evidence” that proves his case. However, he has added: “As things are all part of the court case at the moment I can’t discuss much further.”
He told New Idea: “My grandmother, who worked for the Queen, told me outright that I was Camilla and Charles’ son many times.”
His wife Elvianna elaborated: “We believe that Camilla fell pregnant to Charles and, with the help of her family and the royals, kept Simon until he was 18-months-old.”
Simon currently lives in Queensland and is requesting a mediation session and a “Statement of Paternity”.
