The Cambridge family met with Sir David Attenborough on Thursday, September 24, in the gardens of Kensington Palace where Sir David gave Prince George a giant shark tooth.
According to KP:
When they met, Sir David gave Prince George a tooth from a giant shark the scientific name of which is carcharocles megalodon (‘big tooth’).
Sir David found the tooth on a family holiday to Malta in the late 1960s, embedded in the island’s soft yellow limestone which was laid down during the Miocene period some 23 million years ago. Carcharocles is believed to have grown to 15 metres in length, which is about twice the length of the Great White, the largest shark alive today.
Sir David was at KP for a private, outdoor screening of his new film, David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet, with Prince William.
In addition to William and George, The Duchess of Cambridge, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis were also in attendance.
Very cool gift for George.
KP also said more details on William’s Earthshot prize, which William is working with Sir David on, would be announced in the coming weeks. I wonder how much of the Earthshot prize got pushed back due to COVID (or if William forgot about it or something), because I’ve been following it all year since it was announced at the end of last year and I haven’t heard anything about it at all. I’m very interested in what information will be announced.
