It may not have involved Ben Stiller, Robin Williams and a band of cavemen roaming Central Park, but Prince William and wife Kate got to enjoy their very own Night at the Museum on Wednesday night – complete with a walking diplodocus dinosaur, giant sloths and 3D glasses.
The royal couple, both 31, were guests at the premiere of Natural History Museum Alive 3D, alongside iconic British wildlife presenter Sir David Attenborough.
Kate – in a black lace Alice Temperley gown she wore last year at the premiere of the World War I epic War Horse – and William, in a smart tuxedo, gave some 21st-century glamour to the stunning Victorian surroundings of the museum, which is just a stone's throw from their Kensington Palace home.

Zindzi Mandela had spoken about her father's health on the film's red carpet, saying that he was "fine."
"He's just a typical 95-year-old who is frail," she added.

What do you give a child who will one day inherit castles and palaces?
Little Prince George has been honored with a deeply significant and special present: a fattened black bull and goat.
The gift, from the Samburu community in Kenya, is especially poignant for his parents, Prince William and Kate, as the bull will now grow up in Lewa, where they enjoyed a safari holiday at the time of their engagement in 2010.
A palace source tells PEOPLE that discussions have taken place with local cultural leaders and the bull will be used to start a royal herd. Four heifers will go with the bull, and the Northern Rangelands Trust – an organization that provides support to community conservancies – has agreed to keep this nucleus herd on Lewa.

It's story time!
Prince William got a lesson in storytelling when he visited the recently opened Library of Birmingham Friday.
Joined by a group of 6-year-old children, William, 31, was taken through a favorite tale, We're Going on a Bear Hunt.
Although William appeared a little reticent about joining in all the motions that go with the lively classic text, after a little cajoling from storyteller Amanda Murphy, 54, he was soon swaying and doing the arm movements to accompany the story.

It was the Duchess of Cambridge's turn for a night out Thursday, as she dazzled in an Alice Temperley cocktail dress at a sports-award ceremony, where she bonded with veteran and up-and-coming British athletes.
Wearing towering 4½-inch black suede Jimmy Choo heels, Kate, 31, attended an event for the charity SportsAid and presented its One-to-Watch Award – honoring an especially promising young British sportsman or -woman – to Amber Hill, a 16-year-old shooter from Bracknell.
"She congratulated me on how amazingly I have done," Hill, who holds the junior shotgun world record, told reporters afterward. "It's so nice that she recognizes young up-and-coming athletes. She's a great role model."

As a new dad, Prince William meets a lot of stuffed animals.
"It looks like something George has in his bedroom," he joked as he examined a stuffed toy albatross.
This albatross, however, was a more serious contraption – a demonstration of the latest state-of-the-art technology to help track, and ultimately save, wildlife.
"You haven't been bugging my son's room have you? If I see anyone giving one of these to George then I know you will be tracking him," he said with a smile.
Four-month-old Prince George's nursery is all clear. But poachers hunting ivory are very much in William's sights. He appeared at a special conference at London Zoo Tuesday to hear about the efforts to stop the illegal trade wildlife like rhino and elephant horn.

The Duke of Cambridge mixed fatherhood with royal duties on Friday.
He proudly told of how he had cradled a smiling Prince George in his arms early in the day before heading to a homelessness center in Sunderland in the northeast of England.
There, got his hands dirty – well, dusty – in the kitchen, sprinkling flour and rolling out dough to make chapati bread for a curry meal.
His thoughts turned to home when asked about his 4-month-old. "He was saying he had been holding him and his baby had been smiling into the mirror," said Jennifer Sams, 19, at the center.
