She may seem like one of the most polished and elegant women in the world today, but at age 11, Kate Middleton had no problem portraying a poor flower girl with a thick cockney accent. New footage from the Duchess of Cambridge's grade school musical from 1993, My Fair Lady, has surfaced, featuring the now 32-year-old in the lead role of Eliza Doolittle.

The original 1956 musical, based off the George Bernard Shaw play Pygmalion, was later turned into the famed 1964 movie adaptation, starring Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle and Rex Harrison as Professor Henry Higgins.

Though it's not clear how long Middleton's acting career lasted, she did a bit of modeling at the University of St. Andrews, which was where she met future husband Prince William
