Princess Charlotte, who can be seen with her hair scraped back in a ponytail and donning her school uniform, says: ‘Hello David Attenborough, I like spiders, do you like spiders too?
At the beginning of the clip, a grown up George asks: ‘Hello David Attenborough, what animal do you think will become extinct next?’
He replies: ‘Let’s hope there won’t be any. There are lots of things we can do when animals are in danger of extinction. We can protect them.
‘About 40 years ago I was with some mountain gorillas in the centre of Africa. Mountain gorillas were then very, very rare – only two hundred and fifty of them left.
‘And we showed pictures of them on television around the world 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. So you can save an animal if you want to and out your mind to it. People round the world are doing that because animals are so precious. Let’s hope there won’t be any more that’ll go extinct.’
Meanwhile, Princess Charlotte, who can be seen with her hair scraped back in a ponytail and donning her school uniform, says: ‘Hello David Attenborough, I like spiders, do you like spiders too?
Prince George asks the idol: ‘What animal do you think will become extinct next?’
Sir David responds: ‘I love spiders, I’m so glad you like them! I think they’re wonderful things. Why is it that people are so frightened of them?
‘I think it’s because they’ve actually got eight legs, which are much more than us. If you’ve got eight legs you can move in any direction so you can never be sure which way that spider’s going to go. So people don’t like them and they don’t like those hairy legs either.’
But spiders are so clever. Have you ever tried to watch one build its web? That is extraordinary. How does it make this circular web like that.
The young royals join a series of celebrities – including David Beckham, Billie Eilish and Dame Judi Dench – who also put some question to Sir David via video to coincide with the launch of his film in cinemas and, from Sunday 4 October, on Netflix.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s children recorded their questions for him before they got the chance to meet him in person on September 24.
There, he spent watched his new film David Attenborough: A Life on This Planet with Prince William in the garden at Kensington Palace.
Sir David Attenborough, who was unveiling his new documentary – and who received a reception worthy of the hottest Tinseltown star from three eager young fans, Princes George, seven, and Louis, two, and Princess Charlotte, five, after the screening.
He presented George, seven, with a tooth from an extinct giant shark, which lived 23 million years ago, which he had found on a family holiday to Malta in the late 1960s.
The three children are all interested in dinosaurs and were fascinated by the megalodon fossil and excitedly asked Sir David a number of questions.
