An Australian man who believes he is the love child of Prince Charles and Camilla has released more images to prove he is related to the Royal Family.
Simon Dorante-Day, a British-born engineer who settled in Australia after being adopted, last week shared a comparison photo of the facial similarities between his 14-year-old son Liam and a young Queen Elizabeth, which quickly went viral online.
Now, the 56-year-old has offered up a new match-up highlighting the resemblance between his son and Her Royal Highness.
But Mr Dorante-Day believes the most notable comparison is his resemblance to Mark Shand – Camilla’s late brother – who would be his uncle if his theory is correct.
‘That’s the one that often gets people. It’s one of those lightbulb pics, where the similarity is too much to deny,’ Mr Dorante-Day told 7News.

The Queenslander said he became convinced of his royal ancestry after the birth of his six children, who he says all bare features of Prince Charles and Camilla.
‘After the birth of our daughter Chloe, that’s when we really noticed the similarities. When she was three months old, her ears just popped out.
‘The curve of Chloe’s ears and the tilt is exactly like Charles’. And medically, they say that the ear is as good as a fingerprint, genetically, to show where you’re from.
Mr Dorante-Day said he had big ears as a child and believes he must have undergone surgery at some stage because they no longer stick out.
Born with blue eyes, like Prince Charles and Camilla, Mr Dorante-Day claims his eye colour changed to brown ‘overnight’, which he believes was the work of people trying to hide his biological roots.
In a video posted on Facebook, he previously recalled an incident where he was given a juice box and fell to sleep, only to wake up with his eyes in ‘extreme pain’.

The new photo collection comes after Mr Dorante-Day appeared on Sunrise last week to claim his son is the spitting image of a young Queen Elizabeth after lining up an image of Liam next to Her Royal Highness.
‘I think the evidence speaks for itself,’ Mr Dorante-Day told hosts David Koch and Natalie Barr last Tuesday.
He then shared the image to his Facebook page, where he often posts about his alleged blood relation to the royals.
‘I just shared it with the people on the page and a lady took the photo and changed it into black-and-white and rotated it and put it alongside the Queen,’ Mr Dorante-Day said.
‘I said every day, when I get up in the morning and the kids speak to me, the first thing I see when I turn around, is that, so it is always in my face.’
Barr replied: ‘I know it is a likeness but I don’t know whether that is proof’.
The Sunrise host questioned how Mr Dorante-Day, who was conceived in 1965, could prove his claims when royal commentators say Charles and Camilla met in the 1970s.
Mr Dorante-Day said his grandmother told him about his alleged connection to the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall back in 1998.

‘One of the first things we did was get all the biographies that we could at the time and look this thing up and look at the times to see where Charles and Camilla were, who otherwise could be involved,’ he said.
‘Just because your grandmother said it doesn’t mean you are going to believe it.
‘I did do my research, so the timelines are gaps, people need to come forward and come clean.’
Mr Dorante-Day, who said his birth certificate is ‘complete rubbish’, intends to take his claims back to court.
‘I have a lot of evidence and I’m slowly collecting more. The longer this thing runs the more they are going to get egg on their face, not me,’ he said.
Mr Dorante-Day shared the image comparing his son to Queen Elizabeth a week ago.
‘I’m going from seeing young Charles in Liam to her Maj… Too good not to share,’ he wrote.

Facebook users following Mr Dorante-Day’s quest for answers commented on the post, declaring they could see the likeness.
‘Wow even his precious little eyes look like Queen Elizabeth! And the jaw lines,’ one person commented.
‘Yes, I saw the resemblance of Liam to Elizabeth in the photo you shared today and thought, wow!!! Too many similarities between yourself, your children and others for it to be a mere coincidence,’ another wrote.
Mr Dorante-Day claims his adoptive grandparents Winifred and Ernest worked for the Queen and Prince Philip as a cook and a gardener respectively and told him ‘many times’ that he was ‘Charles and Camilla’s child’.
He said previously: ‘I know it sounds unbelievable, but anything I say is checkable… I’m simply a man looking for my biological parents, and every road has led me back to Camilla and Charles’.

Mr Dorante-Day was born in Gosport, Hampshire in April 1966 and was adopted when he was 18-months-old by Karen and David Day.
If his allegations are true, he would have had to have been conceived in 1965, when Charles was 17 and Camilla, 18, and he claims his Windsor-like cheek-bones and teeth, and ‘Camilla-style hair’, is compelling evidence his claims are true.
He also claims Camilla vanished from Britain’s social scene around the nine months prior to his birth.
