An Australian engineer who believes he is the secret love child of Prince Charles and Camilla has claimed he was taken to meet the duchess at a country estate owned by the Royal Family.
Simon Charles Dorante-Day, 55, last week shared a comparison photo of the facial similarities between his 14-year-old son Liam and a young Queen Elizabeth, which quickly went viral online.
Mr Dorante-Day is a British-born engineer who settled in Australia after being adopted.
The father-of-nine shared a photo of his son in an attempt to prove they are related to the Royal Family, claiming the 14-year-old is the spitting image of a young Elizabeth II.

Mr Dorante-Day claims he was taken by his adoptive mother to Broadlands, a grand Hampshire home owned by the royal family to meet Camilla, whom he says was his real mother
Mr Dorante-Day insists he’s not ‘looking for a title’ or in it for the money – though he has recently set up a new business called ‘Royal Riffs’ selling handmade guitars ‘with that royal finish’ – and is ‘simply a man looking for my biological parents’.
He has since described memories of being taken by his adoptive mother to meet Camilla at Broadlands House, a grand country manor in the English county of Hampshire.
He said he remembered being left by his adoptive parents at the grand home.
‘I have very clear memories of both the inside of the house and the grounds,’ he told 7News.

‘As Nana said to my adopted mother “He’s too old, he’ll remember” – yes I do, quite clearly.’
Mr Dorante-Day said he met with Camilla, the future Duchess of Cornwall, at different homes as a child, but remembers being at Broadlands multiple times.
He claimed to remember playing with toys as a child in the house, next to a woman with blonde hair he believes was Camilla.
‘There’s a picture of Prince Charles from around that time with Camilla at the polo. And that’s the woman I see, who I see in that memory – Camilla,’ he said.

Broadlands was owned by Earl Mountbatten, Queen Elizabeth II’s cousin and an uncle of her late husband, Philip.
The Queen and Phillip, and also Charles and Diana, spent their honeymoons at the home.
Camilla and Charles were romantically involved before and during that marriage and eventually married in 2005.
Mr Dorante-Day was born in 1966 – five years before Charles and Camilla are officially thought to have first met.

He claimed his research suggests Charles and Camilla first became close in 1965, with one report alleging he said they met at Winston Churchill’s funeral in January of that year.
Mr Dorante-Day asserted that, at the age of eight months, he was adopted by a local Portsmouth couple called Karen and David Day.
He claimed to have been told it was a condition of the adoption that his names Simon and Charles were not changed.

He believes Charles and Camilla had a close friend called Simon at the time.
He said his adoptive grandparents, Winifred and Ernest Bowlden, had both worked for the Queen and the late Duke of Edinburgh, who died on April 9 aged 99, as a cook and a gardener in one of their royal households.
He claimed Winifred told him outright Camilla was his real mother.

Mr Dorante-Day also shared other childhood memories, including receiving expensive presents from unknown people.
Charles and Camilla are widely reported to have met at a polo match in Windsor Great Park in 1970.
Legend has it that she introduced herself with the line: ‘You know, sir, my great-grandmother was the mistress of your great-great-grandfather – so how about it?’ – a reference to Edward VII and his mistress, Alice Keppel.
She eventually married Charles in 2005, 10 years after her divorce from Andrew Parker Bowles in 1995.
