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.
Prince George received a present
David Attenborough gave the third in line to the throne a gift. He gave Prince George a tooth from a giant shark called “big tooth.” Attenborough found the tooth, himself, during a family holiday to Malta in the late 1960s.
The tooth was embedded in the island’s soft yellow limestone laid down during the Miocene period about 23 million years ago. The giant shark with the scientific name carcharocles megalodon can grow up to 15 meters in length, which is twice the length of the Great White, the largest shark alive today.
Cambridges allegedly made Prince Harry’s birthday awkward
Meanwhile, there were rumors that Prince William and Kate Middleton skipped Prince Harry’s virtual birthday celebration. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge allegedly made excuses not to join the Zoom call celebrating Prince Harry’s special day.
Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles headed the call. Camilla Parker Bowles also joined the video call but not the Cambridges.
The virtual call was pleasant, according to an insider. However, it was reportedly “a bit awkward” due to the Cambridges’ absence.
Prince William and Middleton’s absence alleged sparked rumors that they are still feuding. However, one should take those reports with a grain of salt. The Cambridge greeted Prince Harry a happy birthday on Instagram which only shows that they are good.
