Prince George has already made it clear he wants a police car for Christmas, and now his dad, Prince William, revealed he had a pretty great part in his school’s holiday play: a sheep.

People reports that Prince William and Duchess Kate visited children at BBC’s Bridge House in Media City, Salford, on Wednesday, and William revealed the adorable detail. “I went to my boy’s nativity play. It was funny,” he said. “He was a sheep.”

Prince George, 4, started at Thomas’s Battersea in London this year. And after his prize role as a sheep, George will have a new one soon: as a probable part of Prince Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle in May. He's practiced with that; he and his sister, Princess Charlotte, took part in their aunt Pippa Middleton's wedding this year.

At the event on Wednesday, William and Kate spoke to the kids about mental health and sat in on a focus group in which kids weighed in on new TV programs. They also watched a film made by a 14-year-old about his obsessive-compulsive disorder.

The royals spread the message that it’s important to speak out about mental health issues. “People are so worried about what they say, they aren’t saying anything at all, and what we’ve found from speaking to people is it’s so good to have conversations,” Kate said. "Mental health used to be this scary word that people didn't like talking about and it's slowly getting better now," William added.
