The 2023 British Academy Film and Television Awards (BAFTA) gets started with a royal spin on Sunday evening at London’s Royal Festival Hall.
The Prince and Princess of Wales walked the BAFTA red carpet together. Kate Middleton recycled her gown for the BAFTA night, while Prince William kept it simple in a black suit.
Catherine, Princess of Wales, put a minimalist spin on regal elegance at the BAFTAs on Sunday night, wearing an upcycled Alexander McQueen gown and Zara earrings.
Appearing with her husband Prince William at the British film industry’s counterpart to the Oscars, the princess struck attention on the red carpet in a gown she previously wore to the 2019 awards. She changed the style with a different shoulder design and a pair of opera gloves.
In 2020, William and Kate attended the BAFTAs for the first time. The royal couple, however, did not attend the April 2021 ceremony owing to the death of Prince Philip, who died the day before the event.
The pair were among the most eagerly anticipated visitors at London’s Royal Festival Hall, making their first appearance at the annual awards in three years. On a night that included an homage to William’s late grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, the Princess was one of numerous celebs who chose a black and white palette.
William dressed in a classic black-tie tuxedo as he served as president of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts since 2010.
After acquiring the new titles of Prince and Princess of Wales, the Royal couple made their first public appearance at the celebration.
The Princess is noted for combining high design with low-cost accessories, as well as reusing outfits from past public engagements.
Kate Middleton turned heads as she walked the red carpet in an Alexander McQueen recycled white gown. She was dressed in a one-shouldered gown with a flowing design and a cascading draping accent on the shoulder.
She wore the same gown to the 2019 BAFTA Awards. She did, however, have the outfit significantly altered for her recent appearance. Kate, it should be noted, is a big fan of wearing the same dress over and over.
