  • The Cambridge kids just met one of their favourite celebrities, Sir David Attenborough.
  • The conservationist and documentary filmmaker recently sat down with Prince William for an outdoor screening of his upcoming feature film.
  • He later met Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis and gave Prince George a special gift that's 23 million years old.


The Cambridges recently met Sir David Attenborough in the gardens at Kensington Palace!

According to People, Kate previously described her three kids as "massive fans" of the conservationist and documentary filmmaker – which explains the delighted look on Charlotte's face when she met Sir David.

The following photos were taken after Prince William and Sir David attended an outdoor screening of the upcoming feature film David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet.

According to the post shared on Instagram, though Charlotte was all too excited, it was Prince George who received a special gift from the 94-year-old: a tooth from a giant shark!

The scientific name for it is carcharocles megalodon, translating to "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," the post reads.

Carcharocles grew to about 15 metres in length – which is twice the length of a great white shark!
