King Charles II and Queen Camila's alleged love child has revealed the details of his latest legal bid to prove his royal paternity.

Simon Dorante-Day, a British-born Australian from Queensland, was adopted at eight months old by a couple whose parents worked for the late Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip.

According to the alleged "Prince Simon," he grew up being told by his parents that he was the royal couple's son.

His theory is that his supposed father - then just 17 years old - conceived him out of wedlock on a 1965 trip to Australia - despite it being widely reported that the couple first met in 1970.

Although the Royal family has never responded to Dorante-Day's claims, he has never given up on having his identity confirmed.

In a new interview with 7News, the 58-year-old has shared that he plans to take the King and Queen to court if they travel to Australia for a royal visit in October.

Simon said the visit is the perfect chance for him to launch his legal bid in having Charles and Camilla submit to a paternity test.

He said that he would keep details about the case private, but assured that he and his wife, Dr. Elvianna Dorante-Day, have been working hard behind the scenes.

“What [legal action] am I going to do this time? Well, I’d be a very silly person that when he comes into the same jurisdiction as me not to do something,” he told the outlet. “But I think I’d be even sillier to let that cat out of the bag right now.”

“You know, there’s always something going on in the background here at our place. It never stops. People think just because it goes quiet on Facebook, [the case] is quiet, but it doesn’t. We’re hammering in the background," he added.

 Dorante-Day has been asking for a DNA test from Charles and Camilla for several years because he strongly believes he's their illegitimate son.

“I’m 100 percent confident that I will have the answers to this and the truth out there,” he told the outlet. “I’m not doing all this to be a Facebook character. And I’ve had to learn to do this and objectionably at times because we were private people."

“These accusations that I’m doing this for money? Yeah, right, okay. And I’m doing it for fame? None is true," he continued, adding, “All we want is the truth. All we want him to do is tell the truth, and her, Camilla as well. They both need to own up.”


The alleged prince also shared with 7News in 2022 that he wants to get his story on the big screen so that the King will take notice.

"I’m taking my case through the proper legal channels, but I know that sharing my story and getting as many people aware of my claims as possible is going to be key to having Charles and Camilla address my claims," he said.

"I want a DNA test from both of them, as ordered through proper legal means. If sharing my story on Netflix or to a greater TV audience will help do that, then I say let’s do it," he concluded.
