PRINCE GEORGE has been watching a lot of documentaries on TV recently, his doting mother Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, revealed.
Prince George appears to love Sir David Attenborough’s documentaries as he has been spending a lot of time watching them, Kate revealed. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took part in their first royal visit via video chat on Wednesday.
During their engagement, the royal couple met pupils and teachers at Casterton Primary Academy, in Burnley.
The students, still in school because sons and daughters of frontline workers, asked Kate and Prince William who is the celebrity they have met during their royal engagements they like the most.
Kate opened up on her meetings with natural historian Sir David, revealing her elder son’s passion for his documentaries has probably influenced her choice.

Anita Ghidotti, chief executive of the Pendle Trust, said: “The kids also asked them what the best famous person was that they had met – something I bet they don’t get asked very often!
“The Duchess said that George has been watching lots of David Attenborough, Blue Planet and the like, so that would probably be hers.”
Kate and Prince William have met Sir David on several occasions in the past.

In September, the couple took part in the naming ceremony of a polar research ship alongside Sir David.
The public had voted to call the vessel Boaty McBoatface – but the decision was overturned and the vessel was eventually called RRS Sir David Attenborough.
Kate first met Sir David at the Natural History Museum Alive 3D premiere in 2013, just two years after she joined the Royal Family.

The pair teamed up once again at the same museum in 2017, when they officially reopened the Hintze Hall.
Prince William has also worked with Sir David in the recent past.
Last year, the Duke of Cambridge interviewed the natural historian at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
During their chat, Prince William asked Sir David about his life’s work, the perilous state of the natural world and how young people can help to safeguard nature.

The pair also discussed climate change and how most people in the world have become aware of the dangers of global warming.
Sir David said: “I don’t think there was anybody in the 1950s who thought that there was a danger that we might annihilate part of the natural world.
“The notion that human beings might exterminate a whole species was not something people thought about, and if it did occur… it seemed the exception.
“Now, of course, we are only too aware that the whole of the natural world is at our disposal, that we can do things accidentally that exterminate a whole area of the natural world and all the species that live within it.

“Now, there are more people living in towns than in the wild, so it means that the majority of the human race are out of touch to some degree with the richness of the natural world.”
Kate and William are currently staying at Anmer Hall with their three children George, Charlotte and Louis.
According to a source, the family-of-five is strictly following the
Government’s advice on self-distancing and haven’t met any member of their extended family.
A source told Vanity Fair: “Since the lockdown, it has been just them at the house with their nanny.
“I’m sure they would love to see their extended families but right now they are following the Government guidelines and not seeing anyone.”
