Man who claims to be King Charles' secret son looking to force DNA test by doing Netflix documentary

Man who claims to be King Charles' secret son looking to force DNA test by doing Netflix documentary

The man who claims to be King Charles’ secret son is wanting to turn his life into a Netflix documentary, saying he has been ‘inundated’ by filmmakers wanting to share his story. 

Simon Dorante-Day has been out to prove that he's the lovechild of King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla since the 1990s, regularly posting 'evidence' on Facebook claiming he bears a strong resemblance to the royals. 

Dorante-Day was born in the UK and adopted when he was eight months old, with both of his adoptive grandparents having worked for the late Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip. 

He claims his parents repeatedly told him he was the son of Charles and Camilla, saying the couple secretly conceived him in 1965, when the now-king was just 17 years old.

As you might expect, the Royal Family have never responded to Dorante-Day's claims.

Now, however, Dorante-Day hopes to turn his life into a new documentary, saying he has a number of offers on the table. 

Speaking to 7News, he explained: “I’ve been inundated in recent weeks with many documentary filmmakers and filmmaking companies keen to share my story. 


“I didn’t expect this to happen - but I’m glad it is. I’m considering their offers. 

“Ultimately I would like to see my story on Netflix, or a similar streaming platform, and will approach them about doing so. I am already speaking on one person, who I trust, and is happy to act on my behalf. 

“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. 

“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.” 

Dorante-Day says he was kept a secret from the world and given up for adoption, claiming his middle name of ‘Charles’ points towards his alleged biological background. 


He is currently working on plans to visit the UK – his first trip back to the country since the claims about his supposedly famous parents went public. 

“I have built my whole life in Australia, with my wife Elvianna and my children,” he said. 

“But I’m looking forward to going back to the UK and really ramping up my quest for answers. 

“I’ve even got radio interviews lined up in Glasgow, Manchester, Dublin, and Portsmouth when I finally get over there.” 


LADbible has reached out to Netflix to see if the streaming service wishes to comment on Dorante-Day's unusual pitch.
