In 2020, Susan Attenborough is in her fifties, but the exact date of birth is a mystery. As for her parents, David turned 94 in 2020 while her mother would have turned 95. Madam Jane left Susan and her family in 1997 when she was just 70.

Apparently, Susan's mother became diagnosed with a dangerous illness called brain haemorrhage that severely harms the brains by causing bleeding with other symptoms of headaches, seizures and numbness. Matter of fact, when Susan's mother was in her final days of life, she had already gone to coma.

In addition to the tragic story of the Attenborough family, Susan's father was in New Zealand filming for The Life of Birds, a wildlife documentary. Luckily, as soon as the family informed David about the condition of his wife, he immediately flew back to the UK and made it on time to say the final goodbye to his wife.
