Maria Aylmer has black hair and fair complexion while Lucy is the read head with alabaster skin, yet the two are twins. The British newspaper quoted Lucy saying:
It was pretty hard. It went on in secondary school as well, and it wasn’t very nice.”
The girls were told that chances of such an occurrence are “one in a million” but according to a BBC report on a similar case back in 2011, the chances are 1 in 500.
Lucy told the Daily Mail, “Maria loves telling people at college that she has a white twin, and I’m very proud of having a black twin.”
