Kate Middleton and Prince William Had a Matching Family Moment with George, Charlotte, and
The Cambridges were stylishly in sync for a private movie screening.
Forget the Fab Four, there's now a new royal trio taking over the internet.
On Saturday, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis teamed up for their first official engagement without parents Kate Middleton and Prince William by their side. In a sweet video posted to the Cambridge's official Twitter account, the young royals had a discussion about wildlife with historian Sir David Attenborough, in which they asked him some pressing questions to help raise awareness about the natural world.

Kicking things off, George confidently greeted Attenborough from the gardens of Kensington Palace, before asking: "What animal do you think will become extinct next?" Next up was Charlotte, who appeared somewhat nervous when inquiring if Attenborough shared her affinity for spiders. "I like spiders. Do you like spiders too?" she asked.
After taking a deep breath, Louis wrapped up the conversation with a final question: "What animal do you like?" This marks the first time we've ever heard the 2-year-old's voice, and it's just as adorable as we imagined. Meanwhile, George and Charlotte have spoken on camera before (who can forget when Charlotte sassily told photographers, "You're not coming" at Louis's christening?), but it's the first time they've done so in a formal capacity.
According to Hello!, Will and Kate recorded their children's questions before the entire family met with Attenborough last week. The Cambridges spent the afternoon with the wildlife activist and enjoyed a private screening of his new movie, David Attenborough: A Life on This Planet outdoors. However, the highlight of Attenborough's visit was when he gifted George a giant shark tooth he found while on vacation in Malta in the '60s.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to share new photographs of their family with @DavidAttenborough. 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’. With a shared passion for protecting the natural world, they continue to support one another in their missions to tackle some of the biggest environmental challenges our planet faces. This includes working together on The @EarthshotPrize 🌍 the most prestigious global environment prize in history – further details of which will be shared in the coming weeks. When they met, Sir David gave Prince George a tooth from a giant shark 🦷 the scientific name of which is carcharocles megalodon (‘big tooth’). Sir David found the tooth on a family holiday to Malta in the late 1960s, embedded in the island’s soft yellow limestone which was laid down during the Miocene period some 23 million years ago. Carcharocles is believed to have grown to 15 metres in length, which is about twice the length of the Great White, the largest shark alive today.

Sadly, though, the young prince may have to give it back, as Malta's culture minister, José Herrera, has reportedly launched an investigation to determine if the fossil should be returned to its origins. We'll see if George has anything to say about that.
