Prince George isn't the only actor in the British royal family! With the recent news that Kate Middleton's son played a sheep in his school's Nativity play, we're taking a look back at his dad Prince William and uncle Prince Harry's own performances in their school's Christmas plays  and the photos of the two princes at a young age are simply adorable!

In 1988, a four-year-old Prince Harry stepped out at his school dressed as a shepherd for his Nativity, which Prince Charles and Princess Diana went to see. Dressed in a long white tunic with a headdress, the little Prince held hands with his classmates on their way to the performance.

A year earlier, the adorable little Prince was, rather unconventionally, a goblin for the annual play, and dressed in red tights and a hat with a green tunic. Prince William, meanwhile, also had a turn as a shepherd back in 1986, and didn't look too impressed as he made his way to the play dressed in a striped, embroidered jacket, while holding the hand of a little girl in his class.

Speaking about watching George in his play while at BBC's Bridge House in Manchester on Wednesday, December 6, William said: "I went to my boy's Nativity play. It was funny. He was a sheep." The royals followed in the footsteps of their grandmother and great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, who appeared in her school pantomime of Aladdin back in 1941 with her younger sister, Princess Margaret.
