The Queensland man who claims to be the son of the newly crowned King Charles III and Camilla is ready to take the monarch to court over paternity claims.
Simon Dorante-Day has regularly made headlines around the world after coming out and claiming that he was King Charles III and Camilla’s secret son.
The 56-year-old now says he is willing to take the new King to court and prove once and for all that he is their son.
He revealed that he has been in discussions with a judge and his barrister about whether or not Charles is above the law.
“And the answer to that was no – they told me that we don’t see any reason why he is,” Mr Dorante-Day told 7News.
“And secondly, Camilla and her family are certainly not above the law. So that argument’s already been had and settled.
“A lot of people were concerned that when Charles rose to be monarch that it would damage my case. But it’s not going to make any difference legally, it’s still pressing ahead the same way.”
Mr Dorante-Day was advised by the Family Court that if he were to come back with evidence “nice and neatly stamped” then the King and Camilla would have to take action.
“…then there’s no reason to deny an application for a DNA test.”
He confessed that before the Queen’s passing on September 8, he sent her a letter asking her to convince Charles to do the right thing.
However, her death put a stop to his plan of getting the late Queen Elizabeth II involved but he said that that brought up some anger.
“Her death brought up some different emotions, some anger. Because she’s been across all this and she’s been aware of all this, knows that it’s been going on. And she let that happen.
“However, by that same token, now I’m looking to the future and I’m thinking – ‘Well I’m not dealing with her any more, I’m dealing with him.’ So there’s that element of it too.”
Despite all the hurdles, Mr Dorante-Day said he won’t back down and knows the truth and will one day get his answer.
“They owe me – as a ward of the state, as an adopted child – the truth about what happened and that primarily is the driving factor. That’s always what I wanted.”
