This is Simon Dorante-Day, the alleged illegitimate son of King Charles III and Camilla: Do they look alike?

The UK has been mourning the death of Queen Elizabeth since her passing last week. The news has shocked and saddened people across the globe.

A 56-year-old man from Australia has claimed to be in a deep state of mourning after he found out about the death of his “grandmother”. The man in question is Simon Charles Dorante-Day and he’s claimed to be the unacknowledged son of Britain’s newly crowned King Charles III and Queen Camila.

The Australian spoke to the channel News7 and explained that he felt frustrated and disappointed at being completely rejected and ignored by the Royal Family. “I just think the least Charles can do is give me an answer, acknowledge me. He gives William a title like that, well, where’s my answer, where’s my DNA proof? If you’re not my father, prove you’re not,” the man claimed.

After the death of his ‘Grandmother’, Dorante-Day claimed via his social media platforms that he received hundreds of messages from people sending him their condolences.

Dorante-Day alleges that he was given up for adoption at the age of eight months old and that his adoptive grandmother confessed to him before she died that he was the “secret son” of Charles and his wife, the new Queen Camilla.

He’s desperate for King Charles III to do a DNA to confirm his claims are in fact true, but his attempts to contact the Royal Family have ultimately proved futile- he’s never received a response from them.
