Looks like Kate Middleton was a natural in the spotlight long before she made her way to the royal stage.

In this 1993 video from her St. Andrew's School production of My Fair Lady, 11-year-old Kate plays Eliza Doolittle, a flower salesgirl who - how appropriate - learns to transform herself into a duchess.

Recognise another cast member? Oddly enough, the boy cast as her love interest, Freddy, was played by a young Andrew Alexander, who now stars on Downton Abbey as Sir John Bullock.

The hilariously adorable footage shows Kate learning how to erase her cockney accent and speak more formally.

It's a role Audrey Hepburn famously brought to the big screen, and we have to say that young Kate gives Audrey a run for her money.
