Prince William reveals George's adorable role in his school's nativity play

Our hearts!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have kicked off their Christmas celebrations by watching their eldest child, Prince George, in his very first school nativity play.

During a visit to the Children's Global Media Summit in Manchester on Wednesday morning, Prince William shared the story of the four-year-old’s moment in the limelight.

While speaking with a handful of children about their plans for Christmas, the second-in-line to the throne said: "I went to my boy's nativity play. It was funny."

He added: "He was a sheep."

We bet the little prince looked just darling in what we can only hope was a cotton-ball adorned costume, but a role as one of the three kings might have felt a tad more familiar!

George recently wrote a letter to Father Christmas, which his proud dad managed to personally deliver to the guy with the big white beard while visiting Finland.

“I’ve seen you and I had to give you this letter,” William said. “He hasn’t written down many requests, so I think one request is probably okay.”

The father-of-two (soon-to-be three!) even added that his son had been “a nice boy” during the past year.

In the letter, the tot circled that he had been "nice," rather than "naughty" and asked for a "police car" under the tree. He even signed his name (just "George," no title necessary when Santa’s involved) at the bottom.

What’s even cuter, the youngster wasn’t in the least bit greedy about his wish list -- he left four of the five lines on the pre-printed note blank.

There’s no word yet on what his little sister, Princess Charlotte, hopes to score this year.

Wills and Kate are anxiously awaiting the arrival of their third little prince or princess in April 2018.

The beloved couple have not yet confirmed the baby's exact due date, however there’s a chance the new royal addition could share their birthday with their great-granny the Queen, who will celebrate her 92nd on 21 April.

Or, if the royal bub were to arrive later in the month, their grand entrance could coincide with the Duke and Duchess’s seventh wedding anniversary on 29 April.

We can barely wait!
