Man who claims he’s Charles and Camilla’s son is now using his own child as ‘proof’
Simon Dorante-Day, 55, took to Facebook to share a picture of his son placed alongside two photos of the Queen – one when she was younger and another more recent.
Captioning the post “uummmm an interesting comparison” he was clearly urging viewers to spot a family resemblance between his teenage boy’s smile and that of England’s monarch.
And they duly did. One wrote: “I see [a] mouth and nose similarity. Maybe face shape and hair colour also.”
Another commented that the teen was “the double of the queen in her older years.”
And a third said: “For sure you would have to be blind or bloody ignorant to not believe they are related.”
Last week, Dorante-Day shared a follow-up montage, including a snapshot of himself next to Prince William (who, if his claims were true, would be his younger half-brother).
Commentators flocked to voice their amazement at his “similarity” to the Duke of Cambridge.
“OMG the likeness to William is amazing,I thought it was two pics of Simon,” one gushed.
“My goodness, you and William are twins,” said a second.
And another agreed: “Amazing family resemblance! The evidence is becoming overwhelming.”
Dorante-Day was born in April 1966 and was adopted by a family who had connections to Buckingham Palace.
His adoptive grandparents were Winifred and Ernest Bowlden, both of whom had worked for the Queen and Prince Philip.
Dorante-Day, who now lives in Australia, claims his grandmother told him categorically that he was Charles and Camilla’s son. He believes that he was conceived when the royal couple were 17 and 18 years old.
Over the past few months he has posted constant comments and articles about the royal family and his British roots, as well as what he deems to be photographic “evidence” of his alleged parentage.
Here’s just a glimpse at his portfolio:
The 55-year-year-old’s is so convinced by his own royal claims that he has even gone to the Australian High Court to demand that the duke and duchess take DNA tests, having failed with three previous legal attempts.
Charles and Camilla have never responded to or acknowledged his theory, and Dorante-Day has previously claimed that the pair, who married in 2005, have ignored his letters to them.
Speaking to 7News back in June, Dorante-Day said many of the comparison photos were sourced and shared by royal fans, and that he was constantly blown away by the “uncanny likenesses” they revealed.
"They stop me in my tracks, even to this day," he told the news site. "All the royal fans and supporters who send them to me, they’re amazing.”
He continued: "There are so many people invested in my story now and helping me, it’s really amazing.
"But at the end of the day, it would be really nice to wake up in the morning and not have to look for evidence and keep defending it.
"Every day, I am defending myself, explaining myself and going over the same points to people.
"It would be nice to just wake up and know who my parents are, for the world to know who my parents are."
