Natural History Museum Replaces Dippy With A Giant Blue Whale

Natural History Museum Replaces Dippy With A Giant Blue Whale

This particular whale became part of the Natural History Museum's collection after beaching herself in Wexford Harbour, Ireland, in 1891, just 10 years after the museum opened.

Kate's glow was the ideal accessory, and she chose to forgo any jewellery every or a tiara for the Museum's Gala event.

Kate Middleton perused the exhibits in a light blue dress while Attenborough wore a dark suit with a red and yellow checked tie.

Kate said that both Prince George and Princess Charlotte love going to the Natural History Museum - especially to see the dinosaur exhibit.

The Duchess and Attenborough joined forces for the day to introduce the new blue whale skeleton, which measures 25.2m long and 4.5 tonnes and replaces the famed Dippy the dinosaur.

"It is so fitting to see the ocean now taking centre stage, with many other marine specimens as star attractions in this splendid Hintze Hall".

These include giraffes, a 4.5 billion-year-old meteorite, and one of the most complete dinosaur fossils ever discovered in the United Kingdom - a Mantellisaurus.

Sir Michael Dixon, director of the museum, said the whale told a "powerful story" which is why they had chosen to put her at the heart of the museum.

But its impressive Hintze Hall is now dominated by the new arrival called Hope.
