In the video, the royal kids are matching in red, white and blue. Prince George kicks things off by asking Attenborough, "What animal do you think will become extinct next?" He offered an optimistic response, saying that there are ways to protect animals who are in danger of extinction. He told George, "You can save an animal if you want to and you put your mind to it."
Then, Princess Charlotte (who, by the way, looks almost exactly like her dad) asks him, "I like spiders, do you like spiders too?" He replied that he loves them, calling the hairy insects "wonderful things." And after his response, Louis presented the final question, asking, "What animal do you like?" In response, the legendary historian talked about his love of monkeys.
This marks the royal kids' very first time speaking on camera, so understandably, fans were thrilled to hear them talk. One fan wrote, "It's so amazing to officially hear their voices! They are so adorable." Another added, "This was a brilliant interview!!! Thank you for sharing and letting us see and hear the royals."
The video was filmed in the gardens of Kensington Palace last month, when the royal family and Attenborough hosted an outdoor screening of his film, David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet. The duke and duchess shared candid photos from the event, which included a snap of George holding his fossilized shark tooth from Attenborough.
The caption reads, "With a shared passion for protecting the natural world, [The Duke and Sir David] continue to support one another in their missions to tackle some of the biggest environmental challenges our planet faces." And it looks like the royal kids are also on board!
Thank you, Prince William and Kate, for making our weekends brighter with this rare gem.
