Prince William and Kate Middleton hit the red carpet for the second year in a row at the annual BAFTA Awards
And all eyes were on Kate who is seven months pregnant as royal watchers were eager to seeher dress choice for the evening, which turned out to be a deep green cap-sleeved gown by Jenny Packham. The dress featured a black sash underneath her bust, which accentuated her baby bump. She accessorized with emerald jewelry, suede Prada heels and a black clutch. The expectant mom wore her hair in perfectly tousled curls.
The Duchess of Cambridge walked the diplomatic line, eschewing the unofficial all-black dress code in favour of a dark green Jenny Packham gown with black ribbon that neither suggested nor denied that she was weighing into the global protest about sexual harassment and gender equality. In a foreword in the ceremony’s programme, the Duke of Cambridge pledged his support to the motions BAFTA had made to safeguard the industry and those working within it: “Levelling the playing field and ensuring a safe, professional working environment for aspiring actors, filmmakers and craft practitioners – regardless of their background and circumstances – is vital to ensure film remains accessible and exciting for all.”
