Brit sisters named 'world's oldest siblings'
London, June 8 (ANI): Two UK sisters have been recognised as the oldest siblings in the world by Guinness World Records.
A spokesperson of the coveted world records has confirmed that the sisters had the "highest combined age of two living siblings".
Dorothy Richards,108, and her sister Marjorie Ruddle, 105, celebrated their record with a tea party at the Peterborough nursing home where Ruddle lives, the BBC reported.
The aggregate age of the two sisters is 213 years, three months, and 27 days.
Ruddle's daughter Pat Comber, who attended the party, revealed that she had been amazed by the attention her mother and aunt were attracting.
"Really, all we wanted was to get the two of them together," she said.
"They haven't seen each other for three years because my mother has a slight disability and my aunt is quite frail.
"We're getting my 108-year-old aunt across to the nursing home to spend an hour or so with my mother.
"It will be a treat for both of them," she said.
The two sisters grew up in Northampton where their father ran a men's shoe factory, GT Hawkins.
The Guinness World Records spokesman insisted that the organisation had only recently started to monitor the "combined age" category and confirmed the record was the first entry on its files.
"We would like to congratulate Marjorie and Dorothy and welcome them in the Guinness World Records family," he added. (ANI)
