Then, a man who was raised in Australia has learned that shocking truth about his origins. Hear how he sadly just missed coming to know his birth mother who sought him out throughout her life. Next… ever hear of a “link boy?” Neither had David or Fisher. They’ll fill you in on who they were and what they did. Not many people would admit this, but King Charles III has… he shares blood with an ancestor known for liking blood. Who hear it is.
