Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have spoken on camera for the first time in a newly released video.
The three youngest members of the Cambridge family star in a new short video with David Attenborough, in which they're seen posing questions to the legendary broadcaster.
Prince George goes first, opening the video with: "Hello David Attenborough! Which animal do you think will become extinct next?"
The natural historian responds, saying that he hopes that no more animals will become extinct, and explaining that endangered species can be protected and saved "if you want to and your put your mind to it". He tells a story of how, about 40 years ago, he was with a group of mountain gorillas in the centre of Africa - and how, at the time, there were only 250 of them left in the world. Now, there are over one thousand of them.
Next up is Princess Charlotte, who reveals that she has a fondness for spiders. She then asks: "Do you like spiders too?"
He responds: "I love spiders, I'm so glad you like spiders too. I think they're wonderful things. Why is it that people are so frightened of them?" He hazards a guess that it's perhaps their ability to move in any direction that unnerves people, and suggests that Charlotte watches a spider weave its web - because "that is extraordinary".
Finally, Prince Louis gets to ask a question - "What animal do you like?" - and adorably pronounces 'animal' incorrectly.
Sir David's answer? Monkeys, because they "can jump all over the place" and "they're so funny". However, if he were to chose an animal that he could keep at home, it would be a puppy.

The Cambridge family shared pictures of a socially distanced meeting with David Attenborough in the gardens of Kensington Palace last weekend, after Prince William and the broadcaster had attended an outdoor screening of Sir David’s upcoming feature film David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet.
In the documentary, Attenborough looks back on the defining moments of his life's work and the devastating changes he has witnessed.
Sir David was interviewed by Prince William at the World Economic Forum in Davos last year, where he warned humanity needed to act fast to prevent parts of the natural world being destroyed.
William and Kate have previously worked with Sir David to help the environment, and in January, the naturalist narrated the announcement of the Earthshot Prize, a cash reward for solutions to environmental problems.
The initiative aims to find 50 solutions to our greatest environmental problems over the next decade and Kensington Palace is set to announce more details in the coming days.
