    Is Prince George already gearing up for an acting career?

    Well, most likely not, but he was offered a starring role in one of Britain's most famous TV shows Coronation Street.

    The show's creative director, John Whiston, told The Daily Star that he wanted the new royal family to join the cast of the longest running Brit soap.

    "It would be fantastic to get Kate [Middleton], [Prince] William and George there with a pair of tiny baby scissors," he said.

    Seeing as though the little prince already has the royal wave down pat, perhaps taking direction in front of the cameras will come naturally to him! 

    NEWS: Prince William and Kate Middleton formally register the birth of Prince George

    The duke and duchess' firstborn was just recently officially registered in the U.K.  and the birth certificate is pretty spectacular.

    The register entry not only gives the date and place of the little one's birth, but his full name as well—His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge.

    William and Kate gave their occupations as prince and princess of the United Kingdom.

    The couple's "usual address" was listed as Kensington Palace, natch.

    But next on the calendar for the future King of England is his christening.

    NEWS: Prince George to be christened with hand-me-down gown

    The wee HRH Prince of Cambridge will not wear the traditional silk gown—as worn by the royals for the last 167 years—and will instead have to don a replica, according to British reports.

    The one-of-a-kind Honiton lace and white satin christening gown made for Britain's royal babies has reportedly been worn by over 30 newborns, including George's father, Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth II.

    The antique gown, which was created in 1841, was reportedly last worn by Lady Louise Windsor in 2004 and has since become too fragile to be used again. As a result, Queen Elizabeth II commissioned an exact copy in order to preserve the original robe.

    Now that's what we call vintage!
