If you want to get your kids onto a royal-approved reading list quick smart, then lucky you, because Prince William has just shared one of Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s favourite bedtime stories.
The title comes as no surprise and it’s the much-loved children’s classic, The Gruffalo by Axel Scheffler and Julia Donaldson.
The Duke of Cambridge shared the tidbit of information when he met the authors who are currently working with the Tusk Trust on their Tusk Rhino Trail Map.
The project asks prominent artists to decorate 21 rhinos which are put on exhibition at iconic London locations, like Kensington Palace and Carnaby Street. Scheffler and Donaldson’s chosen design included characters from their book The Ugly Five, which features animals from the African safari.
The sculptures are then auctioned off to raise funds to fight the illegal wildlife trade of endangered species, including black and white rhinos.
According to People, when Prince William met the authors he was quick to offer his words of praise.
“I know who you are. It’s a big hit in our household, The Gruffalo,” he said.

???? The #TuskRhinoTrail is a London-wide art installation that celebrates the magnificence of the rhino and draws attention to the critical threat facing rhino populations across Africa due to a global poaching crisis. Today The Duke of Cambridge visited the trail – each of the 21 unique works of art will be on public display across iconic London sites until #WorldRhinoDay on 22nd September. They will then be auctioned, with the funds raised providing vital support for @tusk_org projects protecting rhino and other iconic African species.
