Prince George denied role of king in school's nativity play


Prince George has already made it clear he wants a police vehicle for Christmas, and now his dad, Prince William, revealed he had a pretty great part in his school's holiday play: a sheep. "It was amusing", he said.

William said to Santa, "I've seen you and I had to give you this letter".

And while George's father, Prince William, also participated in his school's holiday show, he wasn't so into the costumes. The 4-year-old prince reportedly took his role as a sheep in the nativity play very seriously, and William couldn't have been prouder.

William and Kate spoke to schoolchildren on a visit to the BBC's Bridge House in Media City, Salford, on Wednesday.

School pupil and Newsround contributor Josh talks about his experiences with mental health challenges at the Stepping Out session. He added, "And it's slowly getting better now".

He said that digital media had been great for helping young people become more knowledgable and involved in their wider community, but that he was alarmed at the way society was diving headfirst into technological advancements without knowing how they may impact children.

Prince William and Catherine Duchess of Cambridge attend the Children's Global Media Summit in Manchester. The leading tech companies are associated with the task force which launched a first-of-its-kind online code of conduct with a goal to create a safer online space for children. "I've got such fond memories of being in the garden and being outside from my own childhood, and I'm sharing that with my own children, George and Charlotte, at the moment", she told the youngsters, during her appearance at the Robin Hood Primary School. The royal couple greeted eager children and looked in high spirits as they made their way inside the Manchester Central Convention Complex.
