On Sunday night, the Duchess of Cambridge faced one of her greatest fashion challenges to date after a letter urged BAFTA attendees to don all-black in support of the ‘Time’s Up’ movement.
But lending sartorial support against the sexual harassment allegations which have rocked the entertainment industry could be perceived as a breach of protocol and the Royal Family must remain politically-neutral at all times.
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.
She accessorised the look with lens-catching jewels in a co-ordinating emerald shade and her go-to pair of Prada wavy-cut suede heels.
The Duke – who has been President of BAFTA since 2010 – and the Duchess of Cambridge took to the red carpet after the A-list headed inside the Royal Albert Hall for the ceremony.
For last year’s star-studded awards night, the pregnant royal donned a cold-shoulder gown from go-to label, Alexander McQueen’s resort 2016 line.
And the 36-year-old accessorised the evening look with the brand’s £876 Heart Clasp Clutch Box and a pair of Prada’s wavy-cut heels (both of which sold out instantly).
The royal also looked to Her Majesty for a helping hand and borrowed her diamond wedding bracelet, which Prince Philip designed for their nuptials back in 1947.
It is the first time the Duchess of Cambridge has worn a label other than Alexander McQueen for the annual BAFTA ceremony and tonight proved the perfect opportunity to showcase her blossoming baby bump.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will welcome their third child in April.
