Who is the alleged secret love child of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles? Do they really have one? The drama never stops when you're a royal!

In February 2019, there were some tense times at Kensington Palace when a man came forward claiming he was the secret love child of Prince Charles and his second wife, Camilla Parker Bowles.

Apparently, he claims to have photos showing proof that he is their love child, and that he is therefore entitled to his place in line for the royal throne.

Who is Simon Dorante-Day, and is he really the secret love child of Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall?

Dorante-Day claims he was conceived during Charles and Parker-Bowles' salacious affair while Charles was still married to Princess Diana.

He claims he was put up for adoption before anyone could find out he existed.

"We believe Diana knew of my existence and that she had put the pieces together," he said. "At the time, there were all sorts of rumors flying around about the royal family, and my existence was one of them. I think Diana was at a point where she was finding out answers about her life, how she was wronged, and she was going to go public with it."

There is only one problem with Dorante-Day's claim ...

He was born on April 5, 1966. That makes him 52 years old.

Princess Diana was seven years old in 1966 and not yet married to Prince Charles, so she would have had quite a hard time taking in that bit info in the way he says she did.

Moreover, Prince Charles and Bowles were both single in 1966. So, what's really going on here?

Dorante-Day claims that he resembles Camilla Parker Bowles' son.

Dorante-Day, who claims that his original birth certificate lists fake names for his biological parents, hinges his story on the fact that photos of him as a teenager bear a resemblance to Tom Parker Bowles, the Duchess of Cornwall's son with her first husband.

Dorante-Day was born in England and adopted by Karen and David Day.

His adoptive grandparents worked for Queen Elizabeth at the time, and he alleges it was them who told him the "truth" about his birth.

Simon claims, “I was very close to my grandmother and she told me many times that I was Camilla and Charles’ child. She didn’t just hint at it, she told me outright.”

There are some serious holes in his story, however.

Dorante-Day was reportedly adopted at 18 months old after being born near Portsmouth.

Camilla would have been 17 when he was conceived. Prince Charles would have been 18. He was born in 1966, but Charles and then-Camilla Shand did not meet until 1970.

Dorante-Day claims that he knows they actually met as children.

Dorante-Day has been making the claim for a few years now, to no avail.

Dorante-Day lives in Australia and has nine children.

He has been claiming to be Prince Charles' eldest son for several years now, saying he believes the truth of his birth would have been revealed if not for Diana's tragic death in 1997.

He has a public Facebook page where he lays out his claim to the throne.

There he has said, “Someone had commented on my facial bone structure being the same as Her Maj," and, “The Camilla-style hair doesn’t miss.”

While another of his Facebook friends commented on an old photo of Simon, "William looked a bit like you at this age."

His friends seem to back up his claim.

Dorante-Day calls himself Prince Simon on social media. He'd like a DNA test to prove he's the long lost son of Prince Charles and Bowles.

One of his friends commented on social media, "Simon, there is no doubt you are of royal blood. Why can't they just come out and admit it." Another said, "You very much look like Camilla's brother. I wish you all the best with your case."

Some sane individuals, however, were quick to question the dubious claims, with one commenting, "Two people who have blue eyes cannot produce a brown eyed person. How is that explained in your case Simon?"

He responded, "That's been explained publicly Sue it's already out there — that's why they had to tamper with my eyes — exactly the point!"

Prince Charles and Bowles haven't responded to his claims.

Prince Charles and Bowles have not bothered to lower themselves to commenting on the claims.

Charles has two sons — 37-year-old Prince William, and 35-year-old Prince Harry — from his marriage to the late Princess Diana.

Camilla has two children — 42-year-old Laura and 45-year-old Tom — from her marriage to Andrew Parker Bowles.
