With Prince Charles and Camilla due to touch down in Australia in two weeks for the Commonwealth Games, there’s one person very excited about their arrival – Simon Dorante-Day, the man who believes he’s their secret Aussie son.
Now in a bombshell new revelation, the Queensland grandfather – who has a mountain of credible and alarming proof to back up his explosive claim – has revealed plans for a highly anticipated secret meeting with the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.
In an exclusive interview with New Idea, 51-year-old Simon says he’s ‘very confident’ his meeting will come off after the royal couple land in Queensland in April, and says he can’t wait to finally sit across from them.
‘I would love nothing more than to come face-to-face with Camilla and Charles. That’s all I want,’ he tells New Idea. ‘I just want to ask them the question: “Are you my parents?” See their reaction for myself, just to look at them with my own two eyes.
‘I was born roughly a year after Charles and Camilla were rumoured to be dating in the mid ’60s – and in the lead-up to my birth, Camilla had disappeared from the social scene for many months and Charles was sent to Australia.
‘On top of that, my birth certificate appears to be fake – there’s no record anywhere of the people who were listed as my parents, and the hospital it was claimed I was born at didn’t deliver babies at that time and has no record of my birth.
Adds Simon’s Australian wife Elvianna: ‘We believe that Camilla fell pregnant to Charles and that Camilla, with the help of her family and the royals, kept Simon hidden in Portsmouth until he was 18 months old.
Thanks to the support of Australians and many around the world, Simon says there are tens of thousands desperate to know the truth just like he is. This brings him a lot of comfort as he prepares for his meeting with Charles and Camilla.
‘Now I have all this support – all the emergency services up in Queensland are behind me and are following it all. But it’s interesting that the police are – I guess it’s their investigative nature. There’s a mystery, and they want to solve it,’ he says.
