Prince William: Experts on ‘impact’ he wants for George
Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two have delighted royal fans by appearing in a brand new video in which their ask their hero David Attenborugh questions about animals.
While George led the way kicking off the clip with a pressing question about extinction and Charlotte melted hearts by confessing her love of spiders, it was little Prince Louis who stole the show, an expert has claimed.
Body language analyst and author Judi James analysed the clip for Express.co.uk and claimed Prince Louis ‘trumped’ his older siblings.
Prince Louis latest appearance was the first time the young royal he has been captured speaking in public.
Judi James told Express.co.uk: “For most royal fans this will be the first glimpse of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis speaking to camera and their confidence and performance skills appear to have been inherited from their great-grandmother The Queen.”

According to Judi, Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William’s children are far from camera-shy.
The expert said: “While William and his father Charles before him always showed signs of some camera-shyness as children, home movies of the Queen and her sister Margaret as children reveal that the Queen was quite happy to dance, play and chat in front of the cameras with similar levels of confidence as George, Charlotte and Louis display here.”
While Judi drew parallels between the Queen and her great-granchildren she also pointed out one key difference.
Judi said: “Unlike the Queen though, all three of Kate and William’s children look seriously focused on their questions to their hero Sir David.”

She added: “George looks straight into the camera with an enquiring head-tilt and even raises his arms before pushing them into his sides in a ‘wing’ gesture that suggests enthusiasm and emphasis.”
Judi claims the manner in which George delivered his message suggests it was unscripted.
She said: “His delivery suggests he owns his message rather than having been scripted.”
While Princess Charlotte has previously been thought of as the most confident Cambridge child, she exhibits some shyness in this latest clip.
Judi said: “Charlotte holds her hands in front to hint at some shyness but once she speaks her enthusiasm is obvious.”
However, despite George and Charlotte’s impressive questions to camera, Louis’s lack of hesitation mae him the star.
Judi said: “Both older siblings are trumped by little Louis though, who takes a deep breath and opens his mouth wide to shout his own message to Attenborough without a trace of a fluff or hesitation.”

Sir David replies: “I think I like monkeys the best.
“Because they’re such fun. They can jump all over the place and they can err…they don’t bite.
“Well some do, but if you’re a bit carful they don’t bite and they’re so funny.
“And I like them a lot.
“Mind you, you can’t have monkeys sitting around the home.”
“Because that’s not where they live, they live out in the forest.”
Sir David rounds off the Q&A by saying: “So what can you have at home that you like?
“Well which would you choose? A puppy or a kitten?
“It’s a very difficult question.
“I think I’d go for a puppy.”
