Man claims he is Prince Charles and Camilla's love child, says Diana was ready to go public about his existence before she died
Simon has convinced himself that he was put up for adoption by the then 18-year-old Camilla Shand, with a young Prince Charles, who would have been 17 at the time he was conceived
A certain man, who is fully convinced that he is the love child of Britain's royal Prince Charles and his now-wife Camilla Parker, has now claimed that late Princess Diana knew about his existence and birth before she passed away.
Simon Dorante-Day was born in Gosport, near Portsmouth, in April 1966, and was adopted when he was only 18 months old by a British couple, Karen and David Day.
The 52-year-old now lives in Queensland, Australia, where he has spoken a number of times about his outlandish belief with respect to the royal couple, reports Daily Mail.
Simon has managed to convince himself that he was put up for adoption by the then 18-year-old Camilla Shand, with a young Prince Charles, who would have been 17 at the time Simon was conceived. He also shared an eerily similar looking photo of himself and Duchess Camilla, as well as his resemblance with other members of the royal family.
In a recent interview with New Idea, Simon elaborated on his belief that Princess Diana, Prince Charles' first wife, knew of his birth, and that she had been preparing to "go public" with the news of her husband and Camilla's love child before her death in 1997.
He said: "At the time, there were all sorts of rumors flying around about the royal family, and my existence was one of them." Simon added, "I think Diana was at a point where she was finding out answers about her life, how she was wronged, and she was going to go public with it."
According to the father-of-nine, his adoptive grandparents, Winifred and Ernest, worked for the Queen and Prince Philip, with Ernest even receiving an Imperial Service Award for his work. "I was very close to my grandmother and she told me many times that I was Camilla and Charles' child," Simon said. "She didn’t just hint at it, she told me outright."
Meanwhile, he also mentioned that a photo of him as a teenager is further proof that he is the Queen’s illegitimate grandson since it shows an uncanny resemblance to his "biological parents", their Royal Highnesses. "Someone had commented on my facial bone structure being the same as Her Maj," he shared on Facebook.
Simon’s wife Elvianna too has no doubt that her husband is indeed of royal blood. "We believe the royals kept Simon until he was 18 months old," she shared during the course of the interview. "And Diana knew ... she was going to go public."
