We compute the generating function of random planar quadrangulations with three marked vertices at prescribed pairwise distances. In the scaling limit of large quadrangulations, this discrete three-point function converges to a simple universal scaling function, which is the continuous three-point function of pure 2D quantum gravity. We give explicit expressions for this universal three-point function both in the grand-canonical and canonical ensembles. Various limiting regimes are studied when some of the distances become large or small. By considering the case where the marked vertices are aligned, we also obtain the probability law for the number of geodesic points, namely vertices that lie on a geodesic path between two given vertices, and at prescribed distances from these vertices.
