Need help setting up IPv6 with Kali Linux in VirtualBox

Hi all, I'm hoping for a little help in configuring my Kali Linux VM or resolving an issue I am having with setting it up with IPv6. I have IPv6 on my host machine and can ping the internet, e.g., Google (2001:4860:4860::8888), so I know it should work but despite having an IPv6 assigned to the Kali VM, I am unable to ping the internet.

I am connecting to the internet from my laptop via Wi-Fi and on my VirtualBox setup I am using a bridged adaptor in the network settings. Interestingly, the Kali VM has been assigned IPv6 addresses by the router but on the router it says the device is not configured for IPv6 and does not register it as having an address (see attached picture).

The IPv6 routing seems to point to the router's link local address, and I am able to ping the router at that address using IPv6. I can also ping other guest VMs using IPv6, I just can't get out to the internet (100% packet loss when pinging Google's IPv6).

Traceroute is also of no help, so I'm not sure what's happening. Does anyone know? Can anyone help?
