Crises Hit Buckingham Palace Over Paternity Mess, King Charles 111 Allegedly In Disarray
OpenLife Nigeria reports that as the burial ceremonies of late Queen Elizabeth 11 progresses, there seems to be fresh controversy over who the real next-in- line is in the British succession regulations.
A British-born Aussie who believes he is the lovechild of King Charles III and Queen consort Camilla has said it is a ‘kick in the face’ to see William named as the Prince of Wales.
Queensland-based engineer Simon Charles Dorante-Day, 56, was adopted at eight months old and maintains that his adoptive grandmother told him on her deathbed that he was the ‘secret son’ of Charles and Camilla.
He has for years spoken of his desire for the royals submit to a DNA test to prove his genetic heritage and has even sought senior legal advice after a letter penned to the Queen speaking of his plight was not dignified with a response.
‘It’s hard not to take Charles naming William as the Prince of Wales as anything other than a kick in the face,’ Mr Dorante-Day told News7.
‘I don’t want to feel that way, but I do. I just think, the least Charles can do is give me an answer – acknowledge me. He gives William a title like that, well where’s my answer? Where’s my DNA test? If you are not my father, then prove you’re not.’
The Aussie also reaffirmed his commitment to pursuing legal action in an attempt to force the King into a paternity test.
‘There has been a discussion in there between a judge and myself and his barrister about the legal standing of Charles, and whether the monarch is protected by the law or is above the law,’ Mr Dorante-Day explained.
‘And the answer to that was no – they told me that we don’t see any reason why he is. And secondly, Camilla and her family are certainly not above the law. So that argument’s already been had and settled.’
Mr Dorante-Day insists that Camilla kept him until he was eight months old, hiding him from the world with the help of the royal family and protection officers, and claims to have been told it was a condition of the adoption that his names Simon and Charles were not changed.
However by eight months he was growing too big to hide and it was arranged for the daughter of a royal household staff member – Mr Dorante-Day’s adoptive grandmother – to take him under her care.
Mr Dorante-Day believes inconsistencies on his birth certificate and his name also prove he is of royal blood.
But his timeline of events contradicts official records that say the new King and Camilla met each other five years after Mr Dorante-Day’s birth.
Mr Dorante-Day claimed his research suggests Charles and Camilla first became close in 1965, meeting at Winston Churchill’s funeral in January of that year.
