The Cambridges can be seen posing with Sir David Attenborough in the new snaps, which were taken in the gardens of Kensington Palace earlier this week. Attenborough visited the palace to show Prince William his forthcoming feature film, David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet, in an outdoor screening, which was also captured on camera.
A press release calls Attenborough's new movie, "his most personal project to date, in which he presents some of the most defining moments of his career as a naturalist and the devastating changes he has seen." The film is set to stream on Netflix globally from October 4.
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.

The Duke of Cambridge has collaborated with Attenborough on a number of occasions. Per a press release from Kensington Palace, in 2019, Prince William and Sir Attenborough "appeared together in conversation at Davos in 2019, where they addressed the scale and urgency of the climate and nature crisis."
"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," the press release revealed.
After spending much of quarantine at their Anmer Hall residence in Norfolk, the Cambridges recently returned to Kensington Palace in London so that George and Charlotte could return to school. At a recent engagement in Belfast, William joked (via Hello!), "I think every parent is breathing a sigh of relief that school has started again. Five months—it's been wonderful, but it's been a long five months."
