Princess Charlotte might have followed in Prince George’s footsteps during special milestone

Princess Charlotte might have followed in Prince George's footsteps, during a very special milestone - her first ever nativity play.

‘Tis the season for Christmas carols, Christmas trees and, if you have young children in school, nativity plays.

And with both George and Charlotte in school, Kate and William also have a few special performances in their diary.

While it’s not confirmed Princess Charlotte starred in her school’s nativity play, a listing in the school’s website says they had the event on Thursday 6th December.

Kate and Wills were very busy during the week with a Christmas party at Kensington Palace on Tuesday and flying to Cyprus for another festive celebration on Wednesday, but they were back in London on Thursday and therefore free to attend their daughter’s nativity play.

And if the little princess was part of the play, we wonder if she followed in her brother’s footsteps by playing the same role.

Last year, Prince William revealed that Prince George played a sheep in his school’s nativity play.

Speaking to schoolchildren at BBC’s Bridge House in Media City in Salford, the Prince said his son’s performance at Thomas’s London Day School in Battersea was a ‘funny’ one.

Asking the children about their plans for Christmas, William said: ‘I went to my boy’s nativity play. It was funny.’

Why Prince George and Princess Charlotte DON’T open presents on Christmas Day

He added: ‘He was a sheep.’

If the family attended the nativity play, it will have been another festive activity that’s getting the Cambridges ready for Christmas.

Just a few weeks ago, Kate revealed George and Charlotte already can’t wait for the big day and are very excited with Christmas songs and decorations.

She told well-wishers during a royal engagement: ‘The [kids] are doing well thank you. Getting excited for Christmas time because they’ve started all their Christmas songs and Christmas trees are going up and stuff.’
