Irene Crump and Phyllis Jones are the oldest twins in the U.K., and the two celebrated their 102-nd birthday on November 20.
The twins were born in 1916, and they’ve been around for 20 prime ministers, four monarchs, and two world wars. Even though they’ve been through A LOT, they say that they don’t feel like they’re 102 years old.
Irene told BBC that they can’t grasp the fact that they’re 102, because they don’t feel it. They’ve got no rheumatism, no arthritis, and they believe they’re very lucky in that way.
Irene and Phyllis live together, they have home attendants who help care for them, and their children visit them regularly.
The sisters got cards from the Queen herself when they turned 100, congratulating them on their birthdays.
When asked what’s the secret to living a long and healthy life, their answer is surprising and simple: booze.
Irene said that she used to love a drink, and she enjoys a drink. She doesn’t like one drink, though, but two or three. She added that she used to love a Guinness, and she had one every night.
That’s not the only thing that keeps them healthy, though. The two eat well and exercise regularly, and you can watch the video of their 102-nd birthday celebration below.
