The Australian engineer who believes he is the lovechild of King Charles III and Queen consort Camilla has broken his silence over the death of his ‘grandmother’.

British-born Simon Charles Dorante-Day has shared a tribute to Queen Elizabeth II on Facebook after she passed away at Balmoral Castle on Thursday.

The 56-year-old, who is based in Queensland, said his daughter Meriam told him Her Majesty had died when he woke up on Friday.

‘Like everyone on the planet it would be hard not to be affected and saddened by her passing,’ he wrote.

‘Since finding out about the loss of my grandmother aka Lilibet, I’ve been inundated with messages of condolence for the loss. Thank you all for your kind words, thoughts, and concern.’

Mr Dorante-Day, who has been fighting for King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla to provide a DNA sample since 2018, said the death of the monarch also marked the loss of him ‘pleasantly’ being able to get to the bottom of his biological heritage.

However, he vowed to continue his efforts to try and determine conclusively that the new sovereign and his wife are his true parents.

‘As many of you have expressed my family and I are mourning not just the loss of Her Majesty but the loss of another opportunity to resolve this issue pleasantly, the right way,’ he said.

‘So, despite the lost opportunity of getting to personally hear her version of events, and the great sadness we all feel at her passing, on a personal and public scale it will be business as usual.’

The father-of-nine said he feels the Queen is now ‘free’ to do what she wishes in the afterlife without any judgement ‘like she had her entire reign’ and that she has now been ‘reunited with her greatest love and closest friend’, the late Duke of Edinburgh.

He said that he does not think she would want anyone to feel sad for her, and instead ‘she would rather we all celebrate and remember her for what she stood for and the changes that she was able to make during her reign’.

As they mourn, Mr Dorante-Day, whose wife Elvianna and children are Indigenous Australians, said his family would be partaking in sacred Aboriginal cultural practices.

‘Together we are all entering a period of what First Nations Australians would define as ‘Sorry Business’ as we all experience this loss!’ he said.

‘No matter what your feelings, political alignments, religious belief, or convictions – she has been a part of all of our lives for a lifetime. Elizabeth touched each and every one of us.’

‘Dr. Elvianna, the family, and I would appreciate people’s understanding and respect that we too are experiencing Sorry Business, for our own reasons, in our own way.

‘Rest in peace Aka, you are in God’s hands now, I know in me I will always carry a piece of you.’

Mr Dorante-Day was born in Portsmouth, UK, on April 5 1966 and was adopted at eight months old before his family later settled in Australia.

Both of Mr Dorante-Day’s adoptive grandparents had worked for the Queen and Prince Philip in one of their royal households and he claims his adoptive grandmother repeatedly and directly told him he was the son of Charles and Camilla.

Mr Dorante-Day’s case alleges King Charles and Queen consort Camilla began their close relationship in 1965, a year before his birth certificate says he was born.

He claims in the nine months before he was born Queen consort Camilla was absent from the British social scene and King Charles was sent on a trip to Australia.

Mr Dorante-Day’s case alleges Queen consort Camilla kept him until he was eight months old, hiding him from the world with the help of the royal family and protection officers.

However by eight months he was growing too big to hide and it was arranged the daughter of a royal household staff member – Mr Dorante-Day’s adoptive grandmother – would adopt him.

Mr Dorante-Day believes inconsistencies on his birth certificate and his name also prove he is of royal blood.

However his timeline contradicts official records that say the couple met five years later.

Mr Dorante-Day claimed his research suggests King Charles and Queen consort Camilla first became close in 1965, with one report alleging he said they met at Winston Churchill’s funeral in January of that year.

He claims to have been told it was a condition of the adoption that his names Simon and Charles were not changed.

However, Charles and Camilla are widely reported to have met at a polo match in Windsor Great Park in 1970.

Legend has it that she introduced herself with the line: ‘You know, sir, my great-grandmother was the mistress of your great-great-grandfather – so how about it?’ – a reference to Edward VII and his mistress, Alice Keppel.

She eventually married Charles in 2005, 10 years after her divorce from Andrew Parker Bowles in 1995.

Mr Dorante-Day has spent the past few years engaged in court battles to have the royals commit to paternity and maternity tests.

In that time, he has gone viral by frequently posting images comparing photos of himself and his children alongside members of the British royal family.
