Meghan Markle may currently be gearing up for Christmas festivities with the royal family, but 20 years ago she was celebrating the holidays a bit differently.

Newly unearthed footage shared by the Daily Mail shows a 17-year-old Markle performing "Santa Baby" at the Immaculate Heart High School Christmas Liturgy Show in December 1998, and it gives a rare peek at her life before becoming a household name.

In the video above, Markle can be seen performing the song alongside her classmate and fellow future-actress, Natalie Fryman. Both wore festive Santa hats as they performed a lightly choreographed number to the classic Christmas tune.

A former student in the audience told the Daily Mail that the "performance went down really well."

"Santa Baby" was originally made famous by Eartha Kitt in 1953, but it's seen a major resurgence in 2018 after Miley Cyrus performed it.
