Thursday, September 24, 2020 afternoon, the children of Kate and William had a nice surprise. Indeed, a guest visited them in the gardens of Kensington Palace.

The viewing took place in complete privacy and everyone scrupulously respected the social distances supposed to limit the spread of Covid-19. “The Duke thinks it was David’s best documentary,” assures a member of the palace. “It’s terrifying to see what we have done to the planet and where we are today, but it also offers hope and makes you optimistic because if we act now and together, we can make a difference” , said the dad of Louis (2), George (7) and Charlotte (5).

A very special gift
David Attenborough didn’t come empty-handed and kindly brought the oldest sibling a tooth that came from a species of shark that no longer exists today.

Charlotte, George and Louis are all passionate about dinosaurs and they did not fail to ask a thousand and one questions to their interlocutor. They will surely remember this lovely meeting for a long time.
