A seemingly innocent comment made by Queen Camilla to the Archbishop of Canterbury about her relationship with King Charles has become new “proof” in Simon Dorante-Day’s claims against the monarch.

For several years, 57-year-old Simon from Queensland has claimed that he is the love child of King Charles and Queen Camilla.

However, there have been several holes in his fact checking that have seen his claims been slammed.

One major blindside in his story is the fact that he was born in 1966, and Charles and Camilla have famously dated their relationship back to when they were introduced by a friend in 1970.

When Charles and Camilla first met, they were aged 21 and 22 respectively, and were not photographed publicly together until 1972.

However, in a new documentary titled The Real Crown: Inside the House of Windsor, Dr George Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, said their relationship could go back further than initially believed.

Dr Carey was the Archbishop of Canterbury from 1991 to 2002, and gave his blessing for Charles and Camilla to marry.

In the explosive documentary, Dr Carey says Camilla confirmed that her relationship with Charles went “back to when they were teenagers”.

The former Archbishop said he met Camilla at his son’s flat in Peckham, London, to discuss the possibility of marrying Charles, who was then the Prince of Wales.

He explained they had met at the obscure location to avoid attracting public attention.

“She walked through the front door and we had coffee together… we had an animated conversation and we talked about her relationship with Charles, going way back to when they were teenagers,” Dr Carey said in the TV interview.

“And after that I decided there was no way I could treat her as anything other than a really nice human being who is deeply in love with Charles.”

Dr Carey later gave his blessing for the pair to marry.

Dorante-Day has long claimed that his own personal research has shown that Charles and Camilla first became close in 1965.

He believes that months later, in the lead-up to when he was born, Camilla disappeared from Britain’s social scene for at least nine months, while Charles was sent to Australia.

“I have been unable to find any photos of Camilla from the last months of 1965 or the beginning of 1966, when she would’ve been heavily pregnant with me,” Dorante-Day said.

Speaking to 7News, Dorante-Day said the new interview with Dr Carey casts doubt over the public history of Charles and Camilla’s early relationships days.

“My adoptive grandmother said to me, she said to me quite clearly, that Charles and Camilla were your parents,” he said.

“So when I looked back in the history of when they got together and if this was even possible, I didn’t just believe it. But I went off and I researched it.”

“When you go back and you look at the newspapers from the time and read the royal biographies, it was always stated that they first met in 1972 at a polo match in Windsor.”

“You know, sometimes the media got it wrong and said 1974 or things like that. But that story was always 1972 until I started doing this.”

“Then royal commentator Robert Jobson changed it to 1970 in a TV interview with me, pushed it back a few years.”

“People just keep changing the date. It’s interesting to me.”

“And now the Archbishop’s story, that Camilla said that they went back to when they were teenagers as well. Yeah. Come on.”

“It’s the first time someone has given a concrete account of when they met, where it wasn’t just reports and changing dates.”
