A man who is claiming to be the secret lovechild of Prince Charles and his then-mistress, Camilla Parker-Bowles, wants his day in court.
Simon Dorante-Day was conceived in 1965, when the Prince of Wales was just 17 and the Duchess of Cornwall, 18. He was born in the UK but was adopted by a family.
According to The Mirror, he says his adoptive grandparents Winifred and Ernest both worked for the Queen and Prince Philip in the 60s. He says he’s sent legal papers demanding a DNA test but has been ignored.
FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR REUNION
“My grandmother, who had worked for the Queen, told me outright that I was Camilla and Charles’ son many times. We owe it to our children for them to have answers,” he told a local news station.
“We have some exciting new legal paths that we’re looking at to uncover the truth. 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.”
Camilla and Charles were believed to have first met in 1970. But he says he believes he’s their son and that Diana knew — and hinted that could have been why she was killed.
He’s not the first to claim to be a secret child of a royal.
