Prince Louis heard for first time

 

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's kids today gushed over animals in an adorable video - and it's the first time we have heard Prince Louis address the camera.

Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five and Prince Louis, two, quizzed Sir David Attenborough over his favourite animals in the sweet clip.

Shy Princess Charlotte even revealed she loved spiders in the home video, while little Louis stole the show as he asked Sir David about his favourite animals.

Eldest Prince George was first up in the video, with the future king asking the naturalist: "Hello David Attenborough, what animal do you think will become extinct next?"

Prince Louis, Princess Charlotte, Sir David Attenborough and Prince George appeared in a video together talking about wildlife.

Sir David then replied: "Well let's hope there won't be any because 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 - there were only 250 of them left.

"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 1000 of them.

"So you can save an animal if you want to and put your mind to it. People round the world are doing it because animals are so precious so let's hope there won't be anymore that'll go extinct."

George, who wore a red shirt, appeared to have a number of missing teeth as he stood in front of a green bush to ask the question.

It was then his little sister Charlotte's turn, with the youngster in a sweet blue pinafore gushing: "Hello David Attenborough! I like spiders - do you like spiders too?"

The 94-year-old then replied he loved the "wonderful" animals, adding: "Why is it that people are so frightened of them. I think it's because they have eight legs - much more than us.

"If you've got eight legs you can move in any direction. You can never be quite sure which way that spider is going to go."

 

Then the littlest Cambridge chimed in, with Louis excitedly asking the camera: "What animal do you like?"

Sir David then revealed his favourite animals were monkeys because they're "such fun".

He added: "They can jump all over the place."

It's the most we have heard from the young royals, who were filmed earlier this year clapping for the NHS.

Last year, Princess Charlotte was heard exclaiming "oo la la" as she explored mum Kate's Back to Nature ­garden at the Chelsea Flower Show.

The cheeky little royal also told photographers "you're not coming" outside of Prince Louis' christening in 2018.

Meanwhile big brother Prince George was filmed giving his mum's garden exhibit a "20" out of ten.

According to Kate, the Cambridge kids are "massive fans" of Sir David.

The video was shared by Kensington Royal's social media pages, along with the message "Sir David Attenborough, we've got some questions for you."

It was quickly inundated by fans, with one writing: "This is the best video I have seen in a while..!" Another added: "What a beautiful, amazing, magical surprise!!! William and Kate literally killed me with this cuteness overload".

A third wrote: "This is a great example of connecting the next generation, well done David and the little munchkins".

The video was shared after David Attenborough joined Prince William and his family for a screening of his new documentary.

The veteran naturalist met Prince William, Kate Middleton, both 38, and their children at Kensington Palace last week.

Attenborough even gifted Prince George with a shark tooth he found in Malta.
