  • Last week, the Duke of Cambridge posted a strange photo on the joint Instagram account he shares with his wife. The pic featured two directors’ chairs, reading “Prince William” and “Sir David.” (The latter was referring to the renowned English broadcaster, Sir David Attenborough.)
  • That weekend, Prince William shared details about the get-together on Instagram. The Duke of Cambridge posted three never-before-seen photos of Attenborough and his three children, Prince George (7), Princess Charlotte (5) and Prince Louis (2). The caption read, “The photographs were taken earlier this week in the gardens of Kensington Palace, after The Duke and Sir David attended an outdoor screening of Sir David’s upcoming feature film David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet.”
  • It didn’t take long for royal aficionados to point out the blatant mistake in one of the prince’s pictures: Prince William and Sir David were sitting in each other’s directors’ chairs (not their own).
