The stars are out for the 71st BAFTAs, with the English Royal Family amongst the glamorous crowd.
While the red carpet was once again a chic sea of black in line with the #MeToo and Time’s Up campaign, Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, stood out in a flowy deep green dress by Jenny Packham.

The stunning dress perfectly suited Kate’s glowing complexion and showed off her baby bump – of which, we predict to be a baby boy.
Although she looked fabulous (and Prince William looked pretty dapper too), the choice in colour has attracted some critics who believe she should be showing her support for the movement. Some took to Twitter to express their disappointment:
However, far from not wanting to join the movement, the decision to not wear black had more to do with staying in line with Royal protocol. It is against the Family rules to make a political statement, especially as they try to distance themselves from controversy.
Despite this, Kate did manage to sneak in a bit of black with a sash wrapped around her waist, winning favour from others who were less critical of her choice.
