New Princess Charlotte photo evidence for Aussie "son" of Charles and Camilla

<p>A Queensland man who claims he is the secret love child of Prince Charles and Camilla has released a shocking series of new photographs comparing his family to members of the royal family.</p> <p>Simon Dorante-Day made global headlines since he went public with his claims that he says are a culmination of years of research.</p> <p>And now, the British-Australian man has featured Princess Charlotte, Prince Charles, Prince William, and other senior royals to further prove his claim.</p> <p>One comparison photograph has piqued interest for the “striking similarity” between Princess Charlotte and Dorante-Day’s daughter Meriam.</p> <p>Dorante-Day also released a photograph of his son Liam alongside Prince Charles and also Prince Andrew which surprised many with one observer saying there was “no denying this one”.</p> <p>Dorante-Day told<span> </span><a rel="noopener" href="https://7news.com.au/" target="_blank"><em>7NEWS.com.au</em></a><span> </span>that he himself is surprised by the resemblance between his children a number of other royals.</p> <p>“The one of Liam and Prince Charles really got me,” he said.</p> <p>Dorante-Day went on to say: “I think it’s really hard to look at that one and not see the resemblance, it’s pretty compelling.</p> <p>“The one with Princess Charlotte and our Meriam is also a head-turner. We have always had people tell us how much she looks like Charlotte - even by people who don’t know about our background.</p> <p>“But to see it in black and white is pretty hard to refute.</p> <p>“We are always receiving these sorts of comparisons that supporters on my Facebook page and royal fans and watchers have put together.</p> <p>“They’re always fascinating and definitely gives people food for thought.”</p> <p>A number of curious people have commented on the similarity between the Dorante-Day’s and British royal family members.</p> <p>“There is no denying here,” one person said.</p> <p>Another wrote: “I must say the area above the top lip is typical Windsor on all the children including yourself Simon.”</p> <p>Said one more: “Wow. it’s amazing how much you and your children look like the royal family I wish you good luck and hope the truth comes out in the end.”</p>

Prince Harry blasted for extraordinary new interview

<p>Prince Harry has been slammed for his extraordinary new interview.</p> <p>The royal sat down with the<span> </span><a rel="noopener" href="https://armchairexpertpod.com/" target="_blank"><em>Armchair Expert</em></a><span> </span>podcast for a chat where he candidly spoke about Prince Charles’ parenting.</p> <p>During the 90-minute interview, the Duke of Sussex admitted he moved to the United States with his family to “break the cycle” of “pain” he suffered as a member of the royal family.</p> <p>He also a said it was necessary that he “change that for my own kids”.</p> <p>The Duke went on to suggest that Prince Charles had “suffered” because of his upbringing by the Queen and Prince Philip, and that his father “treated me the way he was treated”.</p> <p>He called it “genetic pain”.</p> <p><img style="width: 500px; height: 281.25px;" src="https://oversixtydev.blob.core.windows.net/media/7841213/harry-charles-1.jpg" alt="" data-udi="umb://media/87598af4921b4c81850331195daf63e3" /></p> <p>He also admitted he wanted to quit royal duties in his “early 20s” because of “what it did” to his mother, Princess Diana.</p> <p>“I don’t think we should be pointing the finger or blaming anybody, but certainly when it comes to parenting, if I’ve experienced some form of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering that perhaps my father or my parents had suffered, I’m going to make sure I break that cycle so that I don’t pass it on, basically,” Harry said.</p> <p>“It’s a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway so we as parents should be doing the most we can to try and say ‘you know what, that happened to me, I’m going to make sure that doesn’t happen to you’”.</p> <p>He went on to say: “I never saw it, I never knew about it, and then suddenly I started to piece it together and go ‘OK, so this is where he went to school, this is what happened, I know this about his life, I also know that is connected to his parents so that means he’s treated me the way he was treated, so how can I change that for my own kids”.</p> <p>“And here I am, I moved my whole family to the US, that wasn’t the plan but sometimes you’ve got make decisions and put your family first and put your mental health first.”</p> <p>The 36-year-old compared his former royal life to “a mixture between<span> </span><em>The Truman Show</em><span> </span>and being in a zoo”, admitting he stepped down last year to put his family and mental health ‘”first.”</p> <p>Harry also revealed that he had started counselling after his wife Meghan Markle had saw how “angry” he had become.</p> <p>When asked if he felt “in a cage” while in royal duties, the royal said: “It’s the job right? Grin and bear it. Get on with it.”</p> <p>“I was in my early twenties and I was thinking I don’t want this job, I don’t want to be here. I don’t want to be doing this.”</p> <p>“Look what it did to my mum, how am I ever going to settle down and have a wife and family when I know it’s going to happen again?” he asked.</p> <p>‘I’ve seen behind the curtain, I’ve seen the business model and seen how this whole thing works and I don’t want to be part of this.”</p> <p>Prince Harry seems to have picked up the American accent as well fans noticed, after he admitting the U.S. had taken a weight off of his shoulders.</p> <p>“Living here now I can actually lift my head and I feel different, my shoulders have dropped, so have hers, you can walk around feeling a little bit freer, I can take Archie on the back of my bicycle, I would never have had the chance to do that,” he said.</p> <p>Royal commentator Robert Jobson accused the royal of throwing his family “under the bus.”</p> <p>“Forgive me, but he’s been a dad for how long? Perhaps he should pen a book on how to parent properly drawing on his wealth of experience? For “charity” of course,” he wrote.</p> <p>Jobson would later go on to Sunrise, where he accused Harry of shameless behaviour”.</p> <p>“You’ve got to take some of it seriously because he believes it in himself, you know, mental health is a big big issue out there.”</p> <p>“But to keep harping on about this, it’s getting embarrassing,” he said.</p> <p>“To not only criticise his father’s parenting skills, but also the Queen and Prince Philip who has only just had his funeral, I think it smacks of pretty shameful behaviour.”</p> <p><em>Images: Getty</em></p>

Insider claims Prince Charles will axe these family members

Pregnant woman’s record-breaking birth

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">A Malian woman who was expecting to give birth to seven babies at a Moroccan clinic left doctors in shock after she had an additional two babies and became the first recorded woman to survive nonuplets.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">In a statement from Mali’s Minister of Health, the five girls, four boys and their mother “are all doing well”.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">25-year-old Halima Cisse gave birth via caesarean section on Tuesday, May 4 in Morocco, having been sent to Morocco for special care according to Mali’s top health official.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Reporters from the Associated Press saw some of the babies wiggling their hands and feet inside incubators in Casablanca’s private Ain Borja clinic.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Ms Cisse had been expecting seven babies and was sent to Morocco for the births by doctors, under government orders, because hospitals in Mali are poorly equipped to care for cases of multiple pregnancy.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The clinic’s director, Youssef Alaoui, told Moroccan state TV Ms Cisse had given birth prematurely at 30 weeks, but is now in a stable condition after heavy bleeding for which she received a blood transfusion.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">According to The Guinness Book of World Records, its current record for most living births at once is eight, and it is currently verifying the Morocco birth.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The current record-holder is American Nadya Suleman, who in 2009 gave birth to eight premature but healthy children.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Mr Alaoui said that Ms Cisse had not used fertility treatments as far as he was aware.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">However, Yacoub Khalaf, a professor of reproductive medicine at King’s College London said such births would be extraordinarily unlikely without fertility treatment, and that multiple births pose several dangers to the mother and her children.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">He said the mother “was at severe risk of losing her uterus or losing her life”, while the babies “could suffer physical and mental handicaps”.</span></p>

"Diana knew of my existence": Simon Dorante-Day's newest claim

<div class="post_body_wrapper"> <div class="post_body"> <div class="body_text redactor-styles redactor-in"> <p>Simon Dorante-Day has gained worldwide fame after going public with his claims that he is the secret love child of Prince Charles and Camilla.</p> <p>After decades of research, Day has come out with new claims that Princess Diana knew about his existence as well.</p> <p>“We believe that Diana knew of my existence, that she had put together the pieces,” he said to <a rel="noopener" href="https://7news.com.au/entertainment/royals/diana-knew-charles-camillas-secret-aussie-son-reveals-little-known-fax-c-2744493" target="_blank"><em>7NEWS</em></a>.</p> <p>“Diana was at a point where she was finding out answers about her life, how she was wronged – and she was going public with it.</p> <p>“I wrote to Mohamed Al-Fayed, Dodi’s father, with my story and told him who I was.</p> <p>“One of Diana’s secret fears would’ve been that there was a secret child. There were all sorts of rumours flying around, and my existence would’ve been one of them.”</p> <p>He said that investigators were also interested in the claims and demanded he sends a fax outlining his research at 2 am.</p> <p>“We were in Lismore, NSW, in 2004 after Diana,” he said.</p> <p>“I sent a letter to the Metropolitan Police saying I believed I was Charles and Camilla’s son and whether it would have any ramifications in the case about Diana’s death.</p> <p>“And at 2 am they asked me to write a statement and fax it back as soon as possible.</p> <p>“I was making submissions to the Paget Enquiry and as a result, Charles got questioned a second time during the enquiry – and it was after my letter was sent, and I believe this is why.”</p> <p>Unfortunately, Diana never confirmed or denied his existence in the years before her death.</p> <p>“Diana sadly died before I went public with my claims, so she was never publicly asked about me,” he said.</p> <p>“But I believe my birth and adoption was part of a royal cover-up.

Prince Charles and Camilla’s “love child” reveals APOLOGY from UK Police

<p dir="ltr">A Queensland man who claims to be the secret love child of Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla has revealed he received a ground-breaking apology from UK authorities.</p> <p dir="ltr">Simon Dorante-Day says he received the formal letter in 2014, from the Metropolitan Police.</p> <p dir="ltr">He was sensationally blocked from entering the UK back in 2012, claiming he was preparing to fly to England to investigate his royal paternity claims when he and his wife were placed on a “no travel list”.</p> <p dir="ltr">The 55-year-old was blocked despite being a citizen in Britain and his wife not even owning a passport.</p> <p dir="ltr"><img style="width: 500px; height: 281.25px;" src="https://oversixtydev.blob.core.windows.net/media/7840989/simon-dorante-day-4.jpg" alt="" data-udi="umb://media/ca37ea0ff5af4f429e8af7c34cfc85a2" /></p> <p dir="ltr">Dorante-Day told 7NEWS.com.au that the move was made in an attempt to stop his investigation.</p> <p dir="ltr">“I first went public with my belief that Charles and Camilla are my parents in 2005,” he said.</p> <p dir="ltr">“I wrote a letter to the Paget Inquiry, set up (in 2004) to investigate Diana’s death, outlining all my evidence - which came about after more than a decade of solid research.</p> <p dir="ltr">“They took my claims seriously and I believe Prince Charles was interviewed as a result.</p> <p dir="ltr">“Since then, a lot of strange things have happened to me and my family - one of them, was that my wife Elvianna and I were blocked from the UK.”</p> <p dir="ltr"><img style="width: 500px; height: 281.25px;" src="https://oversixtydev.blob.core.windows.net/media/7840985/simon-dorante-day-2.jpg" alt="" data-udi="umb://media/d1b10492c59d4f9d94bc3f78eaaa90e1" /></p> <p dir="ltr">The Australian-British man says it was done in a bid to silence his claims.</p> <p dir="ltr">“There’s a lot at stake if this comes out,” he said.</p> <p dir="ltr">“And how much is the UK government silencing the royal family or controlling what happens here? That’s my main question.</p> <p dir="ltr">“I don’t think the royal family can control this alone, and I think to a certain degree the government is still under the thumb of the royal family. What they can or can’t say – the lines of succession.”</p> <p dir="ltr">Dorante-Day released the letter, saying its important people read the apology he received.</p> <p dir="ltr"><img style="width: 500px; height: 281.25px;" src="https://oversixtydev.blob.core.windows.net/media/7840987/simon-dorante-day-1.jpg" alt="" data-udi="umb://media/80fd9df545ca486b973d1e7d695a4805" /></p> <p dir="ltr">The formal letter from the Metropolitan Police’s Directorate of Professional Standards told him that he and his wife had been removed from the notification list “mentioned in your letter of complaint”.</p> <p dir="ltr">“There are a lot of people out there who think my claims are based just on photo similarities or the words of my grandmother,” Dorante-Day said.</p> <p dir="ltr">“But there is so much that has happened in the background, a lot of communication with authorities in the UK and legal battles that people don’t know. I’ve researched this for decades, and every road has lead me back to Charles and Camilla.</p> <p dir="ltr">“So I want people to read this letter and see that my claims were so serious, it even led to UK authorities banning me from the UK.</p> <p dir="ltr"><img style="width: 500px; height: 281.25px;" src="https://oversixtydev.blob.core.windows.net/media/7840988/simon-dorante-day.jpg" alt="" data-udi="umb://media/cda5ee4e2f604a8287380cda2aea1f4f" /></p> <p dir="ltr">“They were clearly in the wrong, which is why they had to retract it - and formally apologise to me.”</p> <p dir="ltr">Dorante-Day says that Detective Inspector David Smith, who was head of Royal Security at the time, described the ban to him as “without justification” and “extremely harassing”.</p> <p dir="ltr">Please allow me to apologise on behalf of the Metropolitan Police for any upset and concern this situation has caused your family and hopefully you are able to move on,” Smith’s formal letter said.</p> <p dir="ltr">Dorante-Day says he wants answers.</p> <p dir="ltr">“I want a result on this one way or another – that’s all I’m after,” he said.</p> <p dir="ltr">“I don’t want the money, the fame. I just want to know who my parents are. I don’t want my children to go through what I have to find out answers, and I will do what I have to to make it happen.</p> <p dir="ltr">“But I won’t stop. The truth will come out eventually.”</p>

Prince Charles and Camilla’s alleged ‘love child’ renews battle to prove his claim

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">A mum has taken to social media with a warning to parents after her daughter was stung by a wasp caught in her clothes.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Having hung her daughter Kathleen’s clothes out to dry, Sabrina Rigby said the insect must have climbed in and subsequently stung the six-year-old.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“WARNING. Check your laundry!” she wrote in a Facebook post. In the post, she said that she’d hung her daughter’s clothes on the line to dry the day before.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“This queen wasp has emerged from hibernation and gotten caught up in the clothes,” she recounted. “The clothes which I then bagged and left in the girls room to be packed away.”</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“I didn’t know she was there until this morning, when she managed to wriggle her way out of the bag and sting Kathleen,” the mum said.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“She is okay and luckily, it turns out, not allergic like I am. But you can bet I’ll be checking  all my laundry from now on!” </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Commenters were thankful for the advice and shared their appreciation for the mum sharing her story.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“Now peering inside my slippers before I put my feet in!!” one woman wrote.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“I got one in my sons pjs last week when I was folding them,” another shared.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Concerned about her daughter, others warned the mum to keep an eye on her in case she actually is allergic.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“You don’t tend to react badly to a first exposure, it is subsequent exposures that she’ll react to if she’s allergic,” one mum advised. “Keep a close eye if she gets stung again in the future.” </span></p> <p><strong>Image credit: Sharina Rigby / Facebook </strong></p>

How Prince Charles will shake up the monarchy

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;"> A royal expert has predicted that Prince Charles is likely to “cut the monarchy down” once he becomes king.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">During an interview with </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">talkRadio</span><span style="font-weight: 400;">, royal author Angela Levin said the Prince would streamline the royal family.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Levin claimed, “Prince Charles has wanted for a very long time to cut the monarchy down to save costs and to make people be worth the money that they get from the taxpayer.”</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">As for who will be cut from the family, Levin pointed to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as likely candidates.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">She said, “I imagine that might be when Harry and Meghan are ditched from being members of the Royal family.”</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Levin, whose books on the royal family include </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">Harry: Conversations with the Prince</span><span style="font-weight: 400;"> that featured exclusive interviews with the Duke of Sussex before he left the family, supported growing rumours about the royal family’s spending.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">If the plan is true and goes ahead, royals not included in the direct line of succession and their spouses could have their positions reconsidered.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The “outer edge” of the royal family has been kept together by the Queen for “sentimental reasons” according to Levin.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“At her age she didn’t really particularly want change which I think is understandable - but he wants to change and I think he will do that,” she said.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The list of remaining royals could be as small as Charles, Camilla, William, Kate, and their three children.</span></p> <blockquote style="background: #FFF;
