Prince George received a very unique gift.
The 7-year-old royal recently met Sir David Attenborough, known for recounting docuseries such as ‘Planet Earth’, which gifted George with a shark’s tooth.
George, along with his parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton, and his other siblings, Charlotte and Louis, met the renowned broadcaster for an outdoor screening of his new documentary “David Attenborough: A Life on Our Planet” .
Photos of the gift exchange were shared on Instagram by Kensington Palace on Saturday, with the caption saying Attenborough, 94, visited the palace earlier in the week.

The post contained a photo of William watching the film alongside the “Our Planet” narrator, as well as two photos of the family.
In one photo, George admires the shark’s tooth.
“When they met, Sir David gave Prince George a tooth from a giant shark, whose scientific name is Carcharocles megalodon (‘big tooth’),” the caption read.

While such a gift is unique in itself, this particular fossil was special to Attenborough.
“Sir David found the tooth on a family vacation to Malta in the late 1960s, embedded in the island’s soft yellow limestone that was deposited during the Miocene period some 23 million years ago” , the post continued. “Carcharocles is believed to have grown to 15 meters in length, about twice the length of the Great White, the largest shark living today. “
According to People magazine, Middleton, 38, revealed that she counts Attenborough among her favorite celebrities she has met.
Additionally, the royal parents met Attenborough for William’s upcoming doc “Prince William: A Planet For Us All”, a reunion their kids weren’t invited to.
