Kate Middleton & David Attenborough Chat It Up at Natural History Museum

Kate Middleton & David Attenborough Chat It Up at Natural History Museum

A visit to the Natural History Museum in London may be a long trip for some people, but you can see its latest exhibit in a really awesome way.

During a speech to celebrate the museum's new blue whale skeleton, which replaces Dippy the Dinosaur after nearly 38 years on display, the 35-year-old mother revealed her brood "adore" the museum.

The museum posted a time-lapse video of its installation of an entire blue whale skeleton, and even from a distance, it's incredible.

All alone in Hintze Hall, the blue whale skeleton which is being unveiled to the great and good at the Natural History Museum.

Blue whales were hunted to the brink of extinction by humans, but were also the first species we chose to save too.

On Thursday night, Kate was the guest of honour at London's Natural History Museum where she marked the opening of Hintze Hall in a grey dress by Preen and a pair of the suede triple strap wavy sandal, costing almost €900.

As the largest-known animal to have ever lived on Earth, Hope's position in the main hall is meant to serve as a potent reminder of environmental destruction.

Kate delivered a short speech during the reception, telling the audience her two children - Prince George and Princess Charlotte - were already fans of the museum.

Information on the whale's journey from ocean to beach to museum is provided in the app, as well as the different techniques used by the museum to learn about the mammal and the importance of the whale's position in Hintze Hall.

Kate, who is a patron of the museum, and the famous naturalist will be among the first to see the 25-metre long skeleton suspended from the ceiling. Dippy the dinosaur, the plaster cast of a diplodocus that has reared over visitors to the museum's central, now "Hintze", hall since 1979, has gone.

The museum has been closed for refurbishment for six months and reopened its doors to the public on Friday (14 July). Today, the hall is named after him.
