Instead, royal cuteness played a sheep.
George’s role was revealed by his father, Prince William on a visit, with his pregnant wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, to the BBC’s Bridge House in Media City, Salford on Wednesday.
While asking the children about their Christmas plans, William said: “I went to my boy’s nativity play. It was funny.”
“He was a sheep,” he added.
Aside from appearing in his school nativity, George is also preparing for the festive season by compiling his Christmas list, which William personally delivered to Father Christmas during a visit to a Christmas market in Helsinki, Finland.
On seeing the festive figure, William said: “I’ve seen you and I had to give you this letter” before handing Father Christmas a handwritten letter from Prince George himself.
The four-year-old apparently only wants a police car for Christmas this year, leaving the other four boxes empty.
He also circled that he had been “nice” instead of naughty.
“He hasn’t written down many requests, so I think one request is probably okay,” William said to the Finnish Santa.
Like most children, Prince George is a big fan of Christmas. So much so that last year, William revealed the little boy had started opening his Christmas presents a week before the big day!
We’ve all been there George.
