Princess Charlotte and Prince George were upset that they couldn’t join their parents in an engagement with Sir David Attenborough.
Princess Charlotte and Prince George were brought up by their parents Prince William and Kate Middleton to be pro-animal and pro-environment. At their age, both royals are already aware of their surroundings because their parents also let them enjoy the outdoors.
The royal kids know Sir David Attenborough and were sad that they didn’t meet him at one particular event. Prince William and Kate Middleton met with Sir David Attenborough in a ceremony of a boat unveiled in 2019.
The polar research vessel was initially named “Boaty McBoatface” based on the public’s boat. However, the winning name was deemed inappropriate. So, a decision was made to name it RRS Sir David Attenborough after the English broadcaster, author, and natural historian.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge appeared with the vessel’s namesake when the boat was displayed to the public at Cammell Laird shipyard in Birkenhead, Merseyside.
As the royal couple toured the ship with Sir David, the duchess shared that their kids were sad they were not able to join the visit.
“The children are very upset that we were coming to see you and they weren’t coming, they’re massive fans of yours,” Middleton said.
“They are absolutely fascinated by the programs,” Prince William added. “I’ve got them into the African ones, but they love all the programs.”
The outlet noted that Prince George and Princess Charlotte got to meet Sir David when he visited the royals at Kensington Palace in September 2020.
In a video released in October 2020, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis asked sir David some questions they were meaning to find answers to.
Prince George asked the environmentalist which animals would go extinct in the future. Meanwhile, Princess Charlotte told Sir David that she loves spiders and asks the latter if he likes spiders too. Prince William and Middleton’s youngest child asked the broadcaster his favorite animals.
Sir David responded to the three kids’ questions. Meanwhile, the netizens were very happy after watching the video because it was the first time they heard all the three children speak directly to the camera.
Many also enjoyed the way 2-year-old Prince Louis did because could barely pronounce the word “animal” correctly. Several royal fans agreed that they were all cute and were growing up so fast.
