The bloke who reckons he's the secret love-child of Prince Charles and wife Camilla has said he believes that something may have been done to his eyes and teeth to alter his appearance to make him look less regal.
Simon Dorante-Day appeared on This Morning where he shocked Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield with his claims of secret surgeries.
He claimed his eyes changed from blue to brown when he was eight and agreed with host Holly when she asked if he believed he had 'something' done to his eyes and teeth to alter how he looked to make him look less like his birth parents.
Speaking from his home in Australia, the 55-year-old said: "I don't think that they had any choice but to do that.
"But it was because of the gossip in Portsmouth around the time. In those times, blue and blue made blue. There was never any inquisition about that.
"So my optometrist will tell you that one of my lenses is perfectly round and one of them is oval-shaped like a football - a rugby football. So this is why I have a vision problem."
He added: "So something was done to my eyes."
To which a sceptical Phil replied: "Holly's got blue eyes but she's never made any claims on royal descent."
The TV show also spoke to a specialist from Moorfield Eye Hospital who said they were unsure of the procedure Dorante-Day had mentioned, before adding that anything of that nature would have been very dangerous in the early 1970s.
Dorante-Day born in April 1966 and adopted by a family in Portsmouth that were linked to Buckingham Palace.
He told 7 News: "My grandmother, who had worked for the Queen, told me outright that I was Camilla and Charles' son many times."
Over the weekend, Dorante-Day shared 'proof' of his heritage in side-by-side shots of his son and Queen Elizabeth II at a similar age.
Sharing the snaps, he said: "We were blown away when we first saw it.
"Elvie [his wife, Dr Elvianna Dorante-Day] and I feel like we see many members of the Royal family in our children, but this one was an eye opener.
"One of my supporters did the comparison and sent it to me and I was speechless.
"A lot of people are reacting to it because it's hard to deny the similarity."
Although many people have cast doubts on his story, Dorante-Day and his wife are determined to bring to light what they believe to be the truth.
