The Cambridges and Sir David Attenborough all wear blue to the showing of Life On Our Planet


Although there was no official dress code for the occasion, it appears that both the Cambridge family and Sir David Attenborough have decided that blue is the color for their meeting in the gardens of Kensington Palace on Thursday.

At the friendly gathering, everyone was dressed in blue – from Princess Charlotte's sporty pumps to Sir David's linen jacket – as they gathered to view natural historian's new environmental documentary, A Life On Our Planet, in the palace grounds.

The Duchess of Cambridge looked effortlessly chic in a denim shirt-denim dress by Gabriela Hearst and seemed to match her family's style perfectly with her own in various shades of blue.

The family showed their impressive selection of outfits in two photos that the palace released for the occasion. The first was shown by Sir David meeting with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children.

Blue planet! The Cambridge family wore several shades of blue – including denim, sky and indigo – for their meeting in the grounds of Kensington Palace with Sir David Attenborough on Thursday. Even the famous naturalist seemed to get the memo by putting on a blue linen jacket and navy blue steps

The naturalist, who recently made headlines on Instagram and amassed a million followers in just four hours, wears a neat blue linen jacket and navy blue steps, and stands a safe distance from the family gathering around a bench in their gardens.

Meanwhile, 38-year-old Kate smiles in her trendy denim shirt dress and Rupert Sanderson navy blue pumps worth £ 475. Five-year-old Charlotte has now opted for a slate blue dress with sky blue pumps.

Gabriela Hearst is a label famous for its accessories that has amassed a host of famous fans in the form of the Duchess of Sussex, Anne Hathaway and Oprah Winfrey.

The Duchess of Cambridge's long-sleeved denim dress is made from 100% Italian-made cotton and features a shirt-style collar, front button fastening and adjustable sleeve length.

It seems that high street brand Zara could become a favorite of young royal Charlotte, who wore a £ 23 value Zara floral dress with a Peter Pan collar to meet Sir David and a pair of sky blue lace-up pumps.

Charlotte donned the brand's sold-out houndstooth dress in May, which also featured the store's distinctive ruffle collar.

Sir David gave seven-year-old George a fossilized basking shark tooth on their first meeting after finding out how the young prince was such a fan.

The prince, who, like little brother Louis, wore a £ 40 Trotters navy plaid shirt and £ 50 Start Rite school brogues, treated the giant tooth with obvious astonishment.

38-year-old William laughed with the broadcaster, who wore a dark blue sweater and blue chinos under his gray blazer, while two-year-old Louis donned a light blue sweater with dark blue shorts and matching indigo socks.

While there was no official dress code for the event, even 94-year-old Sir David joined the color scheme very much, wearing a signature blue suit. Even a tartan blanket that Attenborough wore to keep the late September cold off his shoulders was done in various shades of blue.

Kate recently announced that her children were "massive fans" of Sir David and were disappointed they missed the national treasure when their parents caught up with it for the ITV documentary Prince William: A Planet For Us All.

William and the veteran broadcaster watched A Life On Our Planet, an insightful and powerful firsthand report in which Sir David reflected on both the defining moments in his life as a naturalist and the devastating changes he had seen.

In a new clip promoting the King's programming – showing his passion for the planet and looking for ways to restore the environment for the next generation – Prince William greeted the station with the words, "Here's a recognized face," while Kate admits that George, Charlotte, and Louis are disappointed not to be there.

The Duchess, who revealed in the lockdown that her eldest son often watched David Attenborough's Blue Planets, says: "The children were very upset that we came to them and they didn't. They are massive fans of you."

With a shared passion for protecting the natural world, William and Sir David continue to support each other in their mission to address some of the planet's greatest environmental challenges.
