Kate And Wills Show Specs Appeal At Premiere

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge last night sported 3D glasses in a premiere of a very different kind.

Sitting beneath 'Dippy' the diplodocus at the Natural History Museum, William and Kate watched Sir David Attenborough bring some of his favourite extinct creatures back to life in 3D

In a black floor-length £2,900 Alice Temperley dress, The Duchess chuckled to herself as she donned her glasses, while the Prince waited for the lights to dim before putting on his.

Earlier in the evening the Duke and Duchess met some of the producers of the hour-long film Natural History Museum Alive to be aired on Sky in 3D and 2D on New Year's Day.

An evening together without their nearly five-month-old son Prince George, for the royal couple this was their last joint public engagement of the year

In the film, natural historian Attenborough stays behind in the museum as the doors close to the public.

All through the night he brings to life in 3D†Ice Age beasts, giant reptiles and dinosaurs including the†Diplodocus, which welcomes visitors in the museum's Central Hall.

The film is a collaboration between the Natural History Museum, of which the Duchess is patron, Sky 3D and Colossus Productions.
