Duchess of Cambridge doesn't wear black at the Baftas

Ahead of the BAFTAs, stars including Kate Winslet, Emma Watson and Naomie Harris published a letter in The Observer that called for an end to sexual misconduct, because 2018 should be "the year that time was up on sexual harassment and abuse".

BAFTA victor Allison Janney has defended the Duchess of Cambridge's decision to wear green to the event instead of black, saying she is "an extraordinary woman and she can wear whatever she wants to wear".

The reason was simple. Royal family members are also encouraged not to wear black unless they are attending a funeral or Remembrance Day.

Expecting her third child, Kate stood out in her olive green Jenny Packham gown, standing out from the crowd dressed in black. However, Kensington Palace refused to comment on the meaning of the belt's colour.

So in order to side-step the issue, the 36-year-old opted for a deep, khaki-hued dress by Jenny Peckham which featured a dainty black ribbon waist. The stars graced the red carpet in black, and the same can be expected for the upcoming Oscars ceremony in March.

She arrived on the red carpet with husband the Duke of Cambridge, who told the audience at the Royal Albert Hall that Sir Ridley Scott's films were amongst his own "personal favourites" as he presented the filmmaker with the Fellowship award.

The Fellowship award is the highest accolade given by Bafta to someone who has made an exceptional contribution to film, television, or video games. This is the second time Kate has attended the TV awards; the first was past year, when she wore a black floral, off-the-shoulder gown.

Upon their arrival, William and Kate met the chief executive of Bafta, Amanda Berry, and a host of other representatives from the organisation.
