Recently released pictures show Kate, William and their three children meeting Sir David Attenborough in the gardens of Kensington Palace.
Sir David was invited to watch a special viewing of his upcoming documentary, A Life on Our Planet, in the open-air with Prince William.
The documentary has been billed as Sir David’s “witness statement” on the destruction of the natural world due to climate change and includes his accounts of how the world has changed over his long career as a naturalist and broadcaster.
The cause is close to the heart of Prince William, who will also soon release a documentary on protecting the environment titled Prince William: A Planet For Us All.
Upon Sir David’s visit to the Cambridge’s London residence, he also decided to give Prince George a special gift.
Sir David gave Prince George a giant shark tooth, belonging to the extinct carcharocles megalodon species, which he found in Malta during a family holiday in the 1960s.
Pictures released from the meeting show Prince George and Prince Louis delighted with their new present.
However, it appears the meeting was not only in honour of tackling the climate crisis, as it seems all were dressed in support of the healthcare service.
Pictures of the royal visit were shared on Kate and Wills’ official Instagram account, Kensington Royal, where they thanked NHS staff at the hospital.
The Instagram post read: “Today we mark the 72nd birthday of the NHS, in a year when it was needed more than ever as the nation responds to COVID-19.
“Today, The Duke and Duchess visited the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn to thank staff for their efforts in helping their community.
“Whether you are existing staff, former staff members who came out of retirement, volunteers or key workers – we thank you for the resilience, perseverance and hope you’ve shown our nation.”
