This isn't the first time Prince William and David Beckham have joined forces – the last being the England 2018 World Cup bid. So it definitely isn't the first time we're excited about them being chummy again, for the sake of preserving wildlife.

The Duke of Cambridge and the former footballer launched #WhoseSideAreYouOn, a campaign which encourages engagement and support of young people via social media networks to raise awareness about illegal wildlife trade. And to put a stop to the devastating industry.

#WhoseSideAreYouOn is a campaign by conservation charity United For Wildlife, for which William serves as president and his brother, Prince Harry is also a patron. The campaign features ambassadors from the sporting world, including tennis player Andy Murray, retired NBA player Yao Ming, and Formula One racer Lewis Hamilton.

Would we like to see more of the Beckhams and the Cambridges coming together to make the world a better place? Yes, we would. Maybe a Victoria-Kate fashion collaboration for charity, hmmmm?
