Prince George played an important role in his school’s nativity play, proud dad Prince William revealed Wednesday.
Taking part in the play, by portraying the three kings, angels and all-important animals on deck for the birth of Jesus, is an annual pre-Christmas break tradition in England. But at London’s Thomas’ Battersea this year, it was an opportunity to catch the budding four-year-old thespian in action as a sheep.
His royal father, the Duke of Cambridge, disclosed that Prince George tackled the role of the ruminant mammal during a visit to BBC’s Bridge House in Media City with Kate Middleton.
When asked about his Christmas plans, Prince William even provided a brief review of the show. “I went to my boy’s nativity play. It was funny,” he said according to The Telegraph. He then added: “He was a sheep.”
Here’s hoping the school’s director gave the young royal a chance to show off some of his legendary facial expressions.
