The Archbishop of Canterbury has learned, at the age of 60, that his father was not who he thought, but another man entirely -- Winston Churchill's private secretary, in fact.
The Archbishop, Justin Welby, issued a statement Friday saying that DNA tests had proved that his father was not Gavin Welby, an alcoholic who died nearly 40 years ago, but the late Sir Anthony Montague Browne.
"This comes as a complete surprise," Welby wrote.
The Archbishop of Canterbury is the leader of the Church of England and the symbolic head of the worldwide Anglican Communion, which includes Episcopal and Anglican churches in more than 165 countries.
