Three hedgehogs are born in Moscow. These hedgehogs are special. They are white. They are called albino hedgehogs.

There is another special thing about the hedgehogs. They are born on the 22nd of July. That is the same day as the royal baby, the Prince of Cambridge.

The Prince of Cambridge has three names. The names are George, Alexander and Louis. People name the three hedgehogs after him.

Difficult words: hedgehogs (small animal), born (start life), royal (of the Queen's/King's family).
