"When they met, Sir David gave Prince George a tooth from a giant shark the scientific name of which is carcharocles megalodon ('big tooth')," the caption stated.

Speaking about the generous exchange to The Times, David later revealed why he gifted the 70-year-old object to the future King of England.

"When I was his age, I remember being given fossils by a grown-up, so I thought I would do the same," David told the British publication.

On Sunday, Wills and Kate revealed the filmmaker found the extremely old tooth fossil while holidaying in Malta with his family in the late 1960s.
