‘Hope’, a new giant star of National History Museum, is a blue whale skeleton called ‘Hope’. The replacement of much-loved museum attraction ‘Dippy’ that is going on an international tour, Hope is a 25.2-metre mammal suspended from the ceiling and will greet the visitors at their entrance through the front door of the Museum.

In her speech at the event, Duchess of Cambridge reflected on visiting the Natural History Museum as a child and spoke of the joy of bringing George and Charlotte to the Museum. In her Speech, Duchess remarked,

I, personally, have always been in awe of the sea. As someone who has been fortunate to experience scuba diving, something I love doing, and seeing the incredible marine life, I have come to care deeply about life under our waters and the conservation of our oceans.

Kate told Sir David “Hope the whale tells a completely different story to Dippy the dinosaur. You must have seen a few changes here over the years”. Later on, Duchess enjoyed the Museum tour and mingled with guests.
