Before she was a member of the royal family, Kate Middleton was just a kid (opens in new tab), going to school and spending her nights and weekends doing regular kid activities—like starring in the school musical.

In a vintage clip that's currently making the rounds on social media, Kate is seen playing (opens in new tab) Eliza Dolittle in her school's production of My Fair Lady. Kate sang "Wouldn't It Be Loverly" from the iconic musical and we have to say, she nailed it. 

Kate is just 11-years-old in the clip, according to royal Instagram Tea Time With the Cambridges (opens in new tab), which shared the incredible video this week.

"No better way to start your weekend then with an adorable video of our Duchess at just 11-years-old performing in ‘My Fair Lady’ at her school! 😍," the royal fan account wrote in the clip's caption. "Catherine was always very active in the arts and drama department and the result has been some very adorable videos of her from that time!"
