Kate Middleton singing ‘Wouldn't it be Loverly’ from My Fair Lady is giving the internet life
Sept. 11, 2019
Watch the then 11-year-old Duchess of Cambridge’s cockney rendition of ‘Wouldn't it be Loverly’ – and feel nostalgic for your own school days.
A video of the Duchess of Cambridge singing ‘Wouldn't it be Loverly’ in a school production has resurfaced — and we and the internet are in awe of her never-ending talents.
In her best cockney accent, the then 11-year-old Kate plays the lead part of Eliza Doolittle in a school production of My Fair Lady.
Wrapped in a shawl and carrying a basket, Kate confidently portrays the character of the flower girl taught to pass herself off as a duchess. Oh the irony...
Surrounded by swaying classmates, she showcases strong vocals as she sings about her hope for a better life.
The video was initially shared in 2014, but resurfaced on Instagram this weekend when it was shared by the royal fan account Teatime with the Cambridges .
Filmed in 1993, the clip has now received over 30,000 views and hundreds of comments from royal enthusiasts.
One top comment said: “Omg is that really her singing?”, with another adding: “Is there a full video? I want more… She has a lovely voice.”
Kate took part in the performance while attending St Andrew’s School in Pangbourne, Berkshire.
Turns out Freddy Eynsford-Hill, Eliza’s love interest in the play, was played on this occasion by Andrew Alexander, who is now most recognisable as party-loving aristocrat Sir John Bullock in Downton Abbey .
After leaving St Andrew’s School, Kate went to Marlborough College before studying at St Andrews University in Scotland where she met Prince William.
Keep singing, Kate!
