The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s children shared their passion for animals with Sir David Attenborough in an adorable video.

Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two, quizzed the 94-year-old broadcaster in a video recorded at Kensington Palace in August.

Princess Charlotte revealed she likes spiders, and Sir David told Prince Louis his favourite animal is a monkey.

Prince George, who Sir David had gifted a fossilised giant shark’s tooth to mark their meeting at Kensington Palace, asked him which animal he thinks will become extinct next.

Sir David told him: “About 40 years ago, I was with some mountain gorillas in the centre of Africa.

“Mountain gorillas were then very very rare, there were only 250 of them left, and we showed pictures of them on television, and people thought how terrible it would be if these became extinct.

“So they subscribed lots of money and lots of people came to help, and now there are over a thousand of them.”

Meanwhile, Sir David has also been taking questions by video about the environment from celebrity fans including David Beckham, Dame Judi Dench and singer Billie Eilish.
