All eyes on Kate Middleton as she makes her glamorous BAFTAs debut
Kate Middleton and Prince William attended the BAFTAs for the first time as a couple.
Hollywood's royalty were out in force on the British Academy Film Awards (BAFTAs) red carpet on Sunday night but it was actual royalty who stole the show.
William, who has been president of the prestigious academy since 2010, walked the red carpet hand-in-hand with Kate Middleton as she made her BAFTAs debut.
Kate channelled the screen icons of Hollywood's golden age in her off-the-shoulder, tiered Alexander McQueen dress. The bespoke design spoke to the season with a spring, floral print. She wore her hair swept up in a classic chignon to highlight her diamond teardrop earrings.
William looked equally as sophisticated in a black tuxedo and velvet loafers.
He's set to present a prestigious BAFTA Fellowship to 90-year-old comedy legend Mel Brooks.
“I am not overwhelmed, but I am definitely whelmed by this singular honor,” Brooks said before the event. “BAFTA has made a strangely surprising yet ultimately wise decision.”
William previously awarded a fellowship to Helen Mirren in 2014 and joked that he should refer to The Queen star as “Granny” for the accuracy of her portrayal.
