An Australian man who claims he's the secret son of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles has unveiled bizarre new photo "evidence" that has plenty of people convinced.
Simon Dorante-Day, 55, has spent decades trying to prove his theory about who his biological parents really are.
The Queensland-based engineer was born in Portsmouth in April 1966, and was later adopted by a local family who had ties to the Queen.
He claims his adopted grandmother, who had worked in the Palace, told him "outright" that his real mum and dad were none other than the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.
The couple would have been teenagers at the time, years before Charles' ill-fated marriage to Princess Diana, and decades before they were able to finally be together publicly.
They've never responded to Mr Dorante-Day's well-publicised allegations, but he hasn't given up the fight — and now he's released a fresh piece of "evidence".
One of his supporters made up a side-by-side image of a photo of his son Liam next to the Queen when she was in her early 20s, and many say they see a significant resemblance.

"I saw the resemblance of Liam to Elizabeth in the photo you shared today and thought, wow!" one Facebook user commented on Mr Dorante-Day's recent post sharing the image.
"Too many similarities between yourself, your children and others for it to be a mere coincidence or conspiracy theory."
Another said: "I thought that too, when I saw Liam's photo yesterday. I have followed your quest for a few years now Simon and I admire your integrity… I just know that the truth will be told."
Mr Dorante-Day said he was "blown away" by the photo.
"Elvie [his wife] and I feel like we see many members of the royal family in our children, but this one was an eye opener," he told 7 News.
He claims another recent royal photo further cemented his conviction that he's of royal blood.
Images of the late Prince Philip as a younger man have been widely shared since his death, and Mr Dorante-Day says strangers have been "stopping me in the street to say how much I look like him".

The Australian was doubly saddened by the Duke's death on April 9 as it was a "lost opportunity" for him to find out more about his genealogy, he said.
"I would have very much valued the opportunity to talk with Philip but as Elvianna pointed out – his DNA will live on in the children and I."
Mr Dorante-Day claims Camilla vanished from her social circle for at least nine months prior to his birth, while Charles was in Australia.
He believes she kept him until he was eight months old, using expert royal protection to keep the baby a secret until he was adopted by the daughter of one of the Queen's former household staff.
He insists he remembers spending time with a woman he believes was Camilla several times as a child while his adoptive parents waited outside.
One piece of evidence that would seem to be in his favour is a historian's claim that the hospital where Mr Dorante-Day's birth certificate says he was born did not deliver a single baby during the 1960s.
He's vowed never to give up his fight for the truth, and claims to have some "exciting new legal paths" to help figure it out.
"At the end of the day, I'm just a man who's looking for his biological parents – and every road takes me to Charles and Camilla."
Buckingham Palace has been approached for comment.
