Simon Dorante-Day has exclusively revealed to New Idea the extraordinary story of his alleged royal heritage. He claims he is the secret son of Prince Charles and Camilla.

‘I know it sounds unbelievable, but anything I say is checkable… I’m simply a man looking for my biological parents, and every road has led me back to Camilla and Charles,’ he tells New Idea.

Simon’s story starts on April 5, 1966, when he was born in Gosport, Portsmouth, in the UK. At 18 months old, he was adopted by local couple Karen and David Day.

His adoptive grandparents, Winifred and Ernest, both worked for the Queen and Prince Philip in one of their royal households.

‘I was very close to my grandmother, and she told me many times that I was Camilla and Charles’ child,’ Simon says.

Simon believes that Camilla fell pregnant to Charles in 1965, but she kept her pregnancy a secret.

Simon’s Australian wife Elvianna explans: ‘We believe that Camilla fell pregnant to Charles and that Camilla, with the help of her family and the royals, kept Simon until he was 18 months old.’

Simon also tells New Idea that he also remembers being taken to homes around Portsmouth as a small boy, and spending hours with a young, blonde woman he now identifies as Camilla.

In his search for answers, Simon has written to many high-ranking officials in Australia and the UK, including Prince Charles himself, but has been largely ignored.

He refuses to give up.

‘I’ve hired Australian lawyers to act in the UK and I’m going to fight it in their legal system,’ he says.

‘I want DNA tests. I want the truth to come out.’

Could it be true?! I guess time will tell. We do love a good scandal.

  • According to my Applied Kinesiology testing, the story is TRUE!


  • I think he’s deluding himself.


  • Ooooh scandalous! Hope we get to find out too!


  • The way the royal family is shrouded in such secrecy, nothing would surprise me and anything is possible. If he is, I’m sure he’s been very well looked after


  • Wouldn’t be surprised. Funny his always been told that as a child than grows up to look alot like his potential grandfather , princes charles father ?


  • Well, you never know. These two have been cavorting for years. BUT, then New Idea is known for their lies in a lot of their stories. Anything juicie will do them and hit the headlines. Anything good, well just chuck it in the dust bin.


  • I don\’t believe this story ever! If he was adopted out it would be to high class parents of the Aristocracy and anyway he does not look like either of them!


  • Need to compensate Simon give him balmoral


  • Bet that no DNA will ever be done – pity for Simon. A lot of English people display these features though.


  • I think Camilla wasn’t in the limelight at that stage. What year did Prince Charles and Princess Diana get married? I don’t she would have been in the limelight then either.

    • Charles and Diana got married on 29 July 1981. Camilla was 19 years old in 1966, when Simon was born.
      Checking in wikipedia I found this:

      “Camilla and Prince Charles reportedly met in mid-1971.[48] Though they both belonged to the same social circle and occasionally attended the same events, they had not formally met. Gyles Brandreth states that the couple did not meet at a polo match, as it is believed.[49][50] Instead, they were formally introduced to each other at an event by a mutual friend,”

      If that’s true, it’s almost impossible that they had a child together 5 years earlier.


  • Interesting!! It could be true, you never know. At that time it would have surely been a big scandal if Camilla was pregnant!


  • … His appearance suggests a possibility! :O Keep us posted!? :D


  • wow what an interesting story, I hope that he has some success or at least confirmation right or wrong


  • Lke ms


  • Sounds unlikely but anything is possible. DNA can easily end the speculation.
