The family gathered with Sir Attenborough at Kensington Palace for the movie screening which is in cinemas this week and on Netflix from October 4.

The Queen presented him with an award for raising awareness of the dangers of plastic pollution past year.

There's nothing we love more than new photos of Kate Middleton and Prince William's kids, so imagine our excitement when Kensington Palace shared new pics of Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis in color-coordinated looks. He is very interested in fossils.

Attenborough discovered the fossil on the island of Malta in the 1960s while he was visiting on a family vacation.

The megalodon was estimated to reach up to 18 metres long, while the largest confirmed Great White shark just under six and a half metres long.

The giant creatures lived between 23million and 2.6million years ago and scientists are divided over how and why the species perished.

The tooth is from a giant shark of the scientific name "Carcharocles megalodon", which means "big tooth", as stated in Kensington Royal's Instagram post.

Gigi and Zayn also reportedly share a horse at the farm together, called Cool, while Yolanda has cattle, sheep and chickens over at her spread.

However, it's possible that Prince George may not get to keep the artefact. The duchess often uses the photos to mark special occasions, like birthdays, as well as seemingly candid cute moments, like the ones of Prince William and Prince Charles on Father's Day 2020 or Princess Charlotte smelling flowers back in February.

William and Sir David have discussed the climate crisis publicly before, with William interviewing the famed naturalist at the World Economic Forum in Davos where the pair discussed possible action what could, and should, be taken to combat climate change.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also previously met the conservationist in September 2019 at Birkenhead, for the naming ceremony of the polar research ship the RRS Sir David Attenborough.

Prince William's 38th birthday was the last time we've seen photos of the siblings all together, and yes, they've grown up a lot since then...especially Prince Louis.

Prince William's new documentary "Prince William: A Planet For Us All" will air on ITV next month.

The project is described by Kensington Palace as "the most prestigious global environment prize in history".
