A man who claims he is the secret son of King Charles III and Camilla says he feels sorry for his 'grandmother' the Queen because she "couldn't pick up a chicken wing with her fingers."
Simon Dorante-Day, 56, has claimed to be the son of King Charles III and Camilla Parker Bowles for years and recently paid tribute to the monarch after her passing on September 8.
In what was likely to have been a metaphorical comment to paint a picture of a life in the public glare – with chicken wings being a food not befitting of the Queen – Dorante Day made the peculiar remark.

Reflecting on the Queen's reign, Simon said "I feel sorry for her".
"For years she's had to do what she's told. I can't imagine how that feels, 'no you can't pick up that chicken wing with your fingers'… and be told what to do by the government," he said.
He added: "I feel sorry for her, to live all those years without expressing her true self. I don't think we've really got to see the true Queen. I'd say she had a lot of things she wanted to do but never got done, and was never allowed to do."
It is unclear whether the Queen has ever eaten chicken wings, but one finishing school graduate said that she learned that the Queen "eats chicken on the bone by picking it up (elegantly, of course) with her hand."
It comes as Mr Dorante-Day said it pains him to look at his children because of their likeness to the late monarch.
He explained to 7News in Australia: "It's hard at the moment because every time I look at one of them [his children] I see her.
"So that kind of brings the grief on."
He went on to explain that seeing his friends mourning the monarch's passing in turn makes the grief return.
He said: "A lot of my friends are also mourning that the Queen's passed, and they're quite sad. To see them brings it back. It's right in your face, it's not something you can ignore."

Simon is currently pursuing legal avenues to demand a DNA test from Charles, who replaced his mother as head of state.
He continued: "There has been a discussion in there between a judge and myself and his barrister about the legal standing of Charles, and whether the monarch is protected by the law or is above the law."
"And the answer to that was no – they told me that we don’t see any reason why he is.
"And secondly, Camilla and her family are certainly not above the law. So that argument’s already been had and settled."
