Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall's alleged love child Simon Dorante-Day released new images to prove that he's related to the royal family.
The 55-year-old shared photos of his daughter Meriam, who looks like Princess Anne, and more snapshots of his son Liam, who has been compared to Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles.
Dorante-Day also showed pictures of himself alongside Prince William, Prince Philip and Prince Andrew — but the one that stood out the most was him next to Mark Shand, Camilla's late brother.
“That’s the one that often gets people,” he told 7NEWS.com.au. “It’s one of those lightbulb pics, where the similarity is too much to deny.”
Over the years, the Australian engineer pondered whether he shared DNA with the royal family.
“I’d been doing research for a long time to find my biological parents and roads kept leading to Charles and Camilla,” he said. “But after the birth of our daughter Chloe, that’s when we really noticed the similarities. When she was three months old, her ears just popped out."
“The curve of Chloe’s ears and the tilt is exactly like Charles. And medically, they say that the ear is as good as a fingerprint, genetically, to show where you’re from," he added. “I was teased for having big ears when I was at school. I don’t remember having them pinned back when I was a child. But when you look back at photos you can see they’re definitely different, that I must have had surgery at some stage. Six of our children all have features from Charles and Camilla. Not from [his wife] Elvie’s side – all from mine, and they don’t make sense."
As time went on, Dorante-Day felt the need to learn more about where he came from.
“After Chloe was born with the ears, we were driving through Lismore and someone we met laughed and said ‘With ears like that, you’d think she was Prince Charles,'" he quipped. “The more kids you had, the more you could compare their features to Camilla and Charles. And then everything starts making sense. All these strange visits to houses when I was growing up. All these visits that I went on, but my sister never went on. The woman with blonde hair who played with me."
“Why weren’t my real parents ever spoken of? All these things, just started to sink in. The things that grandma had said over the years," he shared. “And you think, ‘Well hang on, all these things don’t lead to nothing. They all mean something.’ That’s what started it.”
Dorante-Day was adopted by a local family in Portsmouth, England, who had ties to the Queen.
He claims his adopted grandmother, who worked in the Palace, said that his real mom and dad were Charles and Camilla. The two had an affair while he was married to Princess Diana, and they later tied the knot in 2005.
"At the end of the day, I'm just a man who's looking for his biological parents – and every road takes me to Charles and Camilla," he concluded.
Camilla and Charles have never commented on Dorante-Day's claims.
