Prince Louis has made his adorable royal video debut, heard speaking for the first time, as the Cambridge children had the opportunity to quiz their hero Sir David Attenborough about the natural world.
In a video shared by Kensington Palace, the Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis all have the chance to ask Sir David, who they were also able to meet in person last month, a burning question.
Youngest brother Louis, who is just two, asked the last question. Dressed in a stripy jumper over a blue shirt, he said: “What animal do you like?”
Sir David, who at 94 is the same age as their great-grandmother the Queen, said: “I think I like monkeys best, because they’re such fun.”
But he added: “Mind you, you can’t have monkeys sitting around the home, because that’s not where they live. What can you have at home that you like? Which would you choose, a puppy or a kitten?
“It’s a very difficult question. I think I’d go for a puppy.”
A confident Prince George was the first to ask a question.
“Hello, David Attenborough. What animal do you think will become extinct next?” he said at the start of the clip.
Sir David recalled seeing mountain gorillas when they were close to extinction, and shared how they were able to save them.
He said: “Let’s hope there won’t be any more that go extinct.”
Dressed in her school uniform, Charlotte then asked: “I like spiders, do you like spiders too?”
Sir David replied: “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 got eight legs which are much more than us and if you’ve got eight legs you can move in any direction.
“So people don’t like them, and they don’t like hairy legs either.
“But spiders are so clever. Have you ever watched one try to build its web? That is extraordinary, how does it make a circular web like that attached to trees on either side or bits of vegetation? Try and watch and see how they do it. It’s marvellous.”
Royal fans loved the cute video taking to Twitter to share their excitement.
“The Cambridge children are so adorable and clever. Louis is only over 2 years old and he speaks so well,” one person wrote.
“My God what a beautiful surprise!!!! Their voices are so cute thank you so much for this,” another commented.
