Fans of the royal family received unexpected delight on Saturday when new photos of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their family were released.

Prince William, Duchess Kate and their royal children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, are portrayed in the gardens of Kensington Palace with Sir David Attenborough.

In one of the photos, Prince George is holding the tooth of a giant shark given to him by Attenborough.

The photos were taken after Prince William and Attenborough attended an outdoor screening of his latest feature “David Attenborough: A Life on Our Planet”.

The 94-year-old BBC broadcaster calls his film a “witness statement” about the horrific effects climate change has had on the planet. “A Life on Our Planet” will premiere on September 28 after being postponed from its first date in April due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Attenborough, who broke Jennifer Aniston’s record of being the fastest person to reach one million followers on Instagram, joined the platform on Thursday to spread awareness about climate change.

“The world is in trouble,” Attenborough said in his debut post. “Continents are ablaze. Glaciers are melting. Coral reefs are dying. Fish are disappearing from our oceans. The list goes on and on.”

British royalty have long been supporters of action against global climate change.

Last year, Prince William interviewed Attenborough on climate change at the annual World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, as breathtaking scenes of nature flowed across a giant screen behind them.

It wasn’t the last time the Duke of Cambridge collaborated with Attenborough on the subject. In September 2019, Prince William and Duchess Kate attended a naming ceremony for the UK’s new polar research vessel, the RSS Sir David Attenborough, named after the famous wildlife director.
