Kate Middleton and Prince William's children quizzed Sir David Attenborough about his favourite animal, spiders and extinction in the sweet footage.

Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis' voices have been heard for the first time as the royal children star in a sweet video with Sir David Attenborough.

In the footage shared on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's Twitter page, the royal children – George, 7, Charlotte, 5, and Louis, 2 – stood in a garden to ask David Attenborough their burning nature questions.

George went first, asking David what animal he thinks will become extinct next.

The broadcaster and natural historian, 94, replied to the young royal: "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."

He continued: "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 1,000 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."
