Mom and Dad have a big night out.
On Feb. 2 the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will dress to the nines as they attend the BAFTA Awards in London.
Prince William attends nearly every year as president of the awards. He will also present The Fellowship Award to producer Kathleen Kennedy whose work includes “E.T the Extra Terrestrial” and “Star Wars”.
But all eyes will be on Kate Middleton for her fashion choice as this year the show plans on putting on the first-ever carbon neutral awards.
“Sustainability is very important to BAFTA, and we’re doing more than ever before,” a spokesperson told Harpers Bazaar. “The goal is that the EE British Academy Film Awards 2020 will be carbon neutral, working towards having a net positive impact on the environment. From travel and food, to branding and materials, BAFTA is ensuring the awards are as sustainable as possible.”
The awards have used fashion to make a statement before. In 2018, all attendees wore black in honour of #MeToo. However, Kate caused controversy as she wore a dark green gown with black sash. People were divided over if a member of the royal family should make a political statement (Queen Elizabeth must remain politically neutral) and if the black belt was enough of a nod to the cause.
Last year, she stunned in a white Alexander McQueen gown with pearl earrings that once belonged to Prince William’s late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales.
