Earlier today, Prince William revealed that his son Prince George played a sheep in his school’s nativity pageant.

“I went to my boy’s nativity play. It was funny,” William said while at BBC’s Bridge House in Media City, Salford. “He was a sheep.”

As People points out, participating in the holiday play is a longstanding tradition in the royal family as evidenced by this photo of Prince Harry in red tights (!!), dressed up as something of a Christmas sprite for a production back in 1987.

In 1988, Harry appears to have been part of a more religious performance. Here he is wearing in what appears to be a wiseman costume, or perhaps in very elaborate shepherd garb.

And while George’s father, Prince William, also participated in his school’s holiday show, he wasn’t so into the costumes. Here he is heading over to watch the performance back in 1985.

Fingers crossed we see some pics of little George in a sheep outfit sometime before Christmas.
