British television presenter and naturalist David Attenborough recently visited the royal family. Kate Middleton, Prince William, and their three children, Princes George and Louis and Princess Charlotte, hosted him in the courtyard of Kensington Palace, where he and William watched his new documentary “A Life On Our Planet”.
A big fan of the host is Prince George, and David gave him a really special souvenir – a giant tooth of a rare megalodon shark that he found in the sixties during a family vacation in Malta.
The prince was delighted, but now problems arose. Namely, Malta wants the souvenir back with the explanation that the fossil should be exhibited on the island where it was found. It is believed to be about 23 million years old.
The local culture minister, Jose Herrera, believes the tooth should be on display at the local museum and has vowed to personally commit to bringing it back to his country.
By the way, Malta was a British colony until 1964.
