The royal baby is just two weeks old however the royal heir, along with his parents Kate Middleton and Prince William, has already been offered his first ever acting gig on a British soap opera.

Prince George Alexander Louis, born July 22, has reportedly been offered a cameo role on "Coronation Street." The show's Creative Director, John Whiston, confirmed that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge along with baby George are wanted for an appearance in an episode where they would be seen cutting a ribbon to open a new road in the show's set.

"It would be fantastic to get Kate, William and George there with a pair of tiny baby scissors," Whiston told the Daily Star UK adding that a potential appearance would make sense because "The soap has a long historical connection with the Royal Family. So having the newest arrival on the set would be perfect."

While the public would undoubtedly be eager to watch the royal couple and their newborn baby on "Coronation Street," sources have previously revealed that Middleton and William, both 31, are fighting to give the royal heir a normal upbringing out of the spotlight.

"William wants to raise George out of the spotlight as much as possible and give him a somewhat normal childhood," a source close to the couple told Us magazine.

Middleton, who was a commoner prior to receiving her "Royal Princess" title, was raised by middle-class parents and subsequently she wants her son to have a similarly humble upbringing.

"[Kate's] childhood was pretty ordinary," Princess Margaret's official biographer Christopher Warwick said according to Arabia MSN News. "She won't want her baby to be the subject of rules and protocol before they need to be."

Middleton and William will reportedly Mirror the late Princess Diana's parenting method by breaking royal tradition to give their child a normal upbringing.

Diana, who was widely known as "the people's princess," was often photographed walking Princes William and Harry to school, which was unusual for royals. William became the first heir to the throne to attend public school at his mother's request and Prince George is expected to follow suit.

"Both William and Kate are against boarding school. That has been ruled out," the source said.
