"Breakthrough moment": Charles and Camilla's "secret son" shares new pics

<p>Simon Dorante-Day, the Australian man who made headlines with his claim to be King Charles and Camilla’s son, has taken to social media to share a side-by-side comparison of himself and his would-be royal family. </p> <p>Simon initially posted a picture of himself at the age of 23 to celebrate his 57th birthday, with many in the comments telling him that he looked just like Prince William in the snap. </p> <p>A short while later, Simon posted the comparison of himself, Charles, and William, all appearing to be around the same age when their respective pictures were taken. </p> <p>As Simon told <em></em>, “photo comparisons like this are so important to my case. It’s always a breakthrough moment.”</p> <p>It was more than enough proof for Simon’s supporters, with over a hundred comments soon piling onto the post, all celebrating the resemblance they found between the three.</p> <p>“As soon as I saw your post I couldn't believe how much you and William look alike,” one wrote. “I can't wait till the truth comes out and [you] take your rightful place."</p> <p>“Just remarkable,” said another. “Hopefully this is the year Charles acknowledges you and your dear brothers and their families know that you have always been out there in the world."</p> <p>“I actually thought it was an old photo of William!” confessed one. </p> <p>“When I saw your post earlier where you told us it was your birthday, I initially thought it was a photo of Prince William accompanying it!,” someone else agreed. </p> <p>“The resemblance speaks for itself,” came further belief in the father-of-nine’s claim. </p> <p><iframe style="border: none; overflow: hidden;" src=";show_text=true&amp;width=500" width="500" height="256" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></p> <p>Meanwhile, one follower’s thoughts turned to Camilla, and what must be going through her mind if Simon was actually correct, writing that she “wonder[s] how Camilla feels every year on your real birthday because only she can know how it felt.” </p> <p>It’s a thought that Simon seems to have had as well, with the Australian confessing that while his birthday is “just another one” for him, he often considers what they might be thinking on the big day.</p> <p>“Especially Camilla,” he said, “not like she doesn’t know.” </p> <p>He went on to explain that despite this, it was “their loss” in having nothing to do with him, his wife, or their nine children. However, it isn’t enough to stop him from getting to the bottom of his family tree ‘mystery’, with Simon telling <em>7News</em> that he has every intention of getting answers from a DNA test. </p> <p>“Supporters and visitors to my Facebook pages are always sending me comparisons,” he noted. “But it’s important for people to know that my belief that Charles and Camilla are my parents isn’t based on photos.</p> <p>“I have a lot of research that backs up my claims, a lot of evidence. And I want people to remember that my case has spent a long time in the courts, trying to find a resolution, and my legal battles are still continuing.”</p> <p>And as he had admitted in the past, it was all about his desire to know who his real parents are. He believed it all stemmed from that search, and “the thought that it could be Charles and Camilla didn’t come into it until much later on - for years I was simply searching for my parents.</p> <p>“But then eventually, all the evidence just kept on coming back to Charles and Camilla.”</p> <p><em>Images: Facebook</em></p>
