Kate Middleton and Prince William’s children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis gushed over their favourite animals in an adorable environmental video message for Sir David Attenborough.

The youngest members of the Royal Family quizzed Sir David Attenborough over his favourite animals in a sweet video clip shared to social media.

It marks the first time the British public have heard Prince Louis, 2, speak in public and the most that Prince George, 7, Princess Charlotte, 5 have also been seen speaking

Fearless Princess Charlotte even told broadcaster Attenborough her favourite animal is a spider, to which Sir David called them "wonderful."

First up in the sweet video is eldest Prince George, the future King of England, who asked David Attenborough what animal he thinks will become extinct next.

Sir David replied: “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.

"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 around the world are doing it because animals are so precious so let's hope there won't be any more that'll go extinct."

Princess Charlotte then asked the 94-year-old: “Hello David Attenborough! I like spiders – do you like spiders too?"

Sir David said: “Why is it that people are so frightened of them. I think it's because they have eight legs – much more than us.

“If you've got eight legs you can move in any direction. You can never be quite sure which way that spider is going to go."

He then said people were often put off by the hairy legs of the creatures and urged the princess to watch the insects closely as they build their webs, adding: “It's marvellous.”

Little Prince Louis, the youngest of the Cambridges’ kids then excitedly asked Attenborough: "What animal do you like?"

Sir David revealed his favourite animal are monkeys because they’re "such fun" and can "jump all over the place."

The environmentalist then admitted you couldn't have a monkey in your home – making the tough choice between a puppy and a kitten.

Eventually, Sir David said: "I think I’ll go for a puppy."

It said: "Sir David Attenborough, we've got some questions for you."

Royal fans lapped up the video, with one particularly excited user praising Prince William and Kate Middleton for "killing" them with the "cuteness overload".

One said: "This is a great example of connecting the next generation, well done David and the little munchkins."

A second said: "What a beautiful, amazing, magical surprise!!!

"Willam and Kate literally killed me with this cuteness overload."

Earlier this week, the 94-year-old broadcaster joined the Cambridges to watch an outdoor screening of his upcoming film.

The film, "David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet," sets out his "witness statement" on the destruction of the environment and ideas on how humans can still put it right.

Prince William and Prince Charles have stepped in to fight against climate change since Prince Harry stepped down as a senior member of the Royal Family.

Attenborough and William are working together on William's Earthshot Prize, an ambitious global environment project announced last December to combat climate issues.

Details about the Earthshot Prize are expected in the coming weeks, as the men continue to support each other in their mission to tackle some of the biggest environmental challenges the planet faces.
