The 94-year-old branded our damage to the world as "our greatest mistake", but did add: "If we act now, we can yet put it right."

Many viewers were left emotional after watching the hard-hitting documentary as one fan tweeted: "Crying at A Life On Our Planet, so heartbreaking how sad David Attenborough looks."

Another added: "David Attenborough has upset me, hearing him speak about how we’re destroying this planet. I’m close to crying."

A third viewer sobbed: "I wonder if I will ever watch a David Attenborough document without crying my eyes out."

While another posted: "Just finished A Life On Our Planet. David Attenborough's final plea to the humans of this earth to change our ways and save our planet, from the destruction we bestow upon it. Beautiful, and so sad. I'm not crying, you are."

The film was initially scheduled to be released in cinemas earlier this year, but was delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Therefore, the film was shown in UK theatres on Monday, September 28, before it dropped on the giant streaming platform yesterday.

Along with the release of his latest project, Sir David, who recently joined Instagram and smashed the record for gaining more than 1 million followers in less than four hours, answered some questions about the environment from Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Eldest Prince George was first up in the video, with the future king asking the naturalist: "Hello David Attenborough, what animal do you think will become extinct next?"

Sir David then replied: "Well let's hope there won't be any because there are lots of things we can do when animals are in danger of extinction – we can protect them.

According to Kate, the Cambridge kids are "massive fans" of Sir David.
