Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to attend screening of David Attenborough’s ‘Alive 3D’

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will attend a screening of David Attenborough’s National History Museum ‘Alive 3D’ on December 11.

Prince William and Kate will attend the evening reception at the Natural History Museum and will meet the film’s producers, listen to speeches and will join the audience to watch the film.

The new parents will also listen to a Question and Answer session about the project, which will be screened on Sky early next year.

During the evening, the Duke and Duchess will meet Sir David Attenborough and Dr Michael Dixon, who is Director of the Natural History Museum, of which the Duchess is patron, in London.

The film, which sees David bringing to life his favourite extinct creatures, is a collaboration between the Natural History Museum, Sky 3D and Colossus.

The team behind the film’s special effects have combined credits including the latest Box-Office smash Gravity, Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings.

In recent weeks, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have continued to increase their engagements in the run-up to Christmas. Last week, the couple made a visit to Only Connect’s headquarters in London, where they saw how the crime prevention charity works with young people to avoid re-offending.

On Tuesday evening Prince William attended Centrepoint’s Winter Whites Gala at Kensington Palace where he joined Bon Jovi and Taylor Swift on stage for a rendition of ‘Livin’ on a Prayer’.

Last month, William and Kate were joined by close family and friends at St James’s Palace for their first child’s christening.

Senior Royals including The Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry all attended the 30-minute service inside the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace.

The Duchess of Cambridge revealed a day later Prince George had been on his best behaviour during the service, which was conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

“He was such a good boy actually,” Kate said, as she attended a reception at Kensington Palace. “We were very lucky, he’s not always like that.”

On Thursday evening, the Duchess of Cambridge will attend SportAid’s charity ball held in Central London. In October, Kate, who has been patron of the organisation since April, spent a day with young athletes at the Olympic Park in Stratford.
