A man living in Australia says he's the secret love child of Prince Charles and Camilla and wants a DNA test done to prove it, the Sun reports. Simon Dorante-Day, 53, claims his adoptive grandparents Winifred and Ernest once worked as the royal gardener and cook, and informed him "many times" that Charles and Camilla were his parents. The British-born engineer recently filed his case in Australia's high court after it was tossed from lower courts three times. "I know it sounds unbelievable, but anything I say is check-able," the Queensland man has said, per Metro. "I'm simply a man looking for my biological parents, and every road has led me back to Camilla and Charles." He calls it his "40-year search for the truth."

If true, it would mean Charles and Camilla conceived him in 1965, when they were in their teens, while most sources say the pair met in 1971 in their early 20s. Regardless, Dorante-Day claims the so-called "Megxit" (Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's departure from royal life) looks like a cover-up to disguise his royal lineage. "While the whole world was thinking they were talking about Harry, we believe this legal battle would've also been on the agenda and discussed," Dorante-Day tells New Idea. "In his farewell speech, Harry himself alluded to there being 'other challenges' and I can’t help but wonder if this case is one." He admits that high-court clerks laughed when he filed his case in December. (Read more royal family stories.)
