The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, met up with Sir David Attenborough last week, as they all attended a very special outdoor screening.

The Cambridges and Sir David met up in the gardens of Kensington Palace to watch the environmentalist's upcoming feature film, David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet.

Alongside lovely photos taken at the outdoor event, the official @KensingtonPalace Instagram caption posted in the caption: "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."

The caption also revealed some lovely details about the meet-up, including the fact that Sir David gave Prince George a tooth from a giant shark, called a carcharocles megalodon or "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," the caption explains. "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."

We're sure that Prince George loved looking at the tooth, as his happy smile in the second photo shared in the Instagram post proves!

The whole of the Cambridge clan, and Sir David for that matter, were wearing smart outfits in coordinating shades of blue for the occasion, with the TV veteran in a navy suit, Princes William and Louis in blue jumpers, George in a blue checked shirt, and Charlotte in cute blue shoes.

The Duchess of Cambridge looked stunning as usual, in a light blue denim shirt dress, which appears to be the Marley Belted style by designer brand Gabriella Hearst.
