A critical new piece of evidence involving Camilla's BROTHER surfaces in the'secret Australian son' case
The Queensland father who believes he is Prince Charles and Camilla's Australian son has spoken out about critical new photographic evidence involving the Duchess' late brother.
Simon Dorante-Day has garnered worldwide attention since making his claims public, which he claims are the result of decades of research (see box below).
Now, a new photo comparison of the 55-year-old and Camilla's brother Mark Shand has sparked outrage on social media.
Dorante-Day is pictured alongside Shand, who died in 2014, in a Facebook post, and hundreds have commented on the "eerie" similarities.
“A few people have commented that we resemble twins, and I have to agree,” Dorante-Day explained.
“One of my supporters discovered the comparison, which sparked a massive response on Facebook.
“I believe this is one of the more compelling photo comparisons; it's difficult to deny how similar we look.
Facial similarities are critical in paternity cases and are definitely taken into account by the court - and you can see the striking similarities between myself and Camilla, as well as her brother, her son.
There are also numerous similarities between my children and members of the Windsor family, particularly Princess Charlotte and the Queen. "Many have commented on how much I resemble Prince William and Prince Andrew, to name a few."
Many royal watchers were taken aback by the comparison on Facebook.
“It appears as though you are one and the same,” one observed. “There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that you are Camilla's son.”
Additional: “You are entirely correct; he is your twin. Amazing.”
A third stated: “My God, you're the doppelganger! I adore you and your family (fellow adoptee here!) because you are so courageous in your pursuit of the truth.”
I added another: “[You are] Mark's spitting image. Camilla must realize how similar you are to him. She must have some sort of emotion. Every day, any mother who has given up a child thinks about them.”
Dorante-Day has spent the last three years battling in the courts to compel Prince Charles and Camilla to submit to DNA testing.
“This is a lengthy legal process, one that I will not abandon. I took my case to the Australian High Court, but it was remanded to the Family Court - which will occur again in the coming months,” he previously stated.
“I'm also seeking legal representation in the United Kingdom in order to take my fight international.”
- Simon Dorante-Day has made these claims to substantiate his claim that he is the son of Charles and Camilla.
- Dorante-Day was born in Gosport, Portsmouth, on April 5, 1966.
- At the age of eight months, he was adopted by Karen and David Day, a local couple. Winifred and Ernest Bowlden, his adoptive grandparents, had both worked for the Queen and Prince Philip in one of their royal households. Ernest Bowlden was also a recipient of the Imperial Service Medal.
- Dorante-grandmother Day's repeatedly informed him that he was Camilla and Charles's son. “She didn't imply it; she told me outright,” he explained.
- According to Dorante-research, Day's Charles and Camilla first became close in 1965. He claims that months later, in the months preceding his birth, Camilla vanished from the social scene in Britain for at least nine months, while Charles was deported to Australia.
- According to a historian, the hospital where Dorante-Day was born did not deliver a single baby during the decade he was born. Additionally, it is believed that the names listed on his birth certificate were "fictitious."
- Dorante-Day claims Camilla kept him until he was eight months old, concealing him with the assistance of royals and protection officers. He continues by alleging that when he became too old, it was arranged for him to be adopted by one of the Queen's former house staff - Dorante-adoptive Day's grandmother.
- Dorante-Day recalls being taken to houses around Portsmouth as a small child. He would spend time with the woman he believes is Camilla in this location while protection officers and his adoptive parents waited outside.
- Dorante-Day stated that his biological parents gave him his first and middle names, Simon Charles. “My adoptive mother informed me that it was a requirement of the adoption that my given name - Simon Charles - and middle name remain the same,” he explained. “At the time, Charles and Camilla had a close friend named Simon.”
