Prince George has landed his first acting role as it is revealed that he played the role of a sheep in his school’s nativity play.
During a visit to Salford, George’s father, the Duke of Cambridge said that he went to see George perform in the play and that it was very “funny”.
The future King has been attending St Thomas’ Battersea since September and was chosen by teachers to play the farmyard animal.
The revelation was made by the Duke of Cambridge as he and the Duchess of Cambridge spoke to schoolchildren during a visit to the BBC in Media City, Salford.
When he asked the children if they had any plans for Christmas, Prince William said: “I went to my boy’s nativity play. It was funny.”
He added: “He was a sheep.”
Prince George is known as George Cambridge to his classmates. Thomas’s Battersea’s motto is “be kind” and requires that students “not just to tolerate but to celebrate difference, including faith, beliefs and culture.”
In addition to traditional subjects, George will be taught French, ballet, drama, art, and physical education at the fee-paying independent school.
George’s mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, has said in the past that she does not think her son “has any idea what’s going to hit him” as he begins school.
Maud Windsor, the daughter of Lord and Lady Frederick Windsor, also attends Thomas’s Battersea. She is the granddaughter of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent.
The Duke and Duchess were in Salford for a “stepping out” session on Wednesday. This is a focus group for children to give feedback on children’s television for TV creators.
The BBC Director General Tony Hall met the couple at the BBC as well as the director of BBC Children, Alice Webb.
