Kate Middleton, her Baby Bump & Prince William attend 2018 BAFTAs

Pret - a - Reporter

Nearly 200 British female entertainment stars called for an global movement to end sexual misconduct across society in a letter that was published ahead of Sunday's British Academy Film Awards.

The reason was simple. Kate's outfit, and Prince William's traditional tux, seemed safe choices for the royals, who avoid political statements. Royal family members are also encouraged not to wear black unless they are attending a funeral or Remembrance Day.

Further accessorizing, the 36-year-old - who is due to give birth to her third child this April - added some extra bling for the evening with a special diamond and platinum piece straight from Queen Elizabeth's person jewelry collection known as The Wedding Bracelet.

The Duchess of Cambridge sidestepped the black dress code at the Baftas by wearing a dark green Jenny Packham dress with a black belt. While Kensington Palace has yet to respond to the backlash over Kate's dress choice, Allison Janney has come to the Duchess' defense.




"So disappointed that the duchess didn't wear black at the #BAFTAs", one user wrote on Twitter. The stars graced the red carpet in black, and the same can be expected for the upcoming Oscars ceremony in March.

Duchess Kate donned a dark green Jenny Packham gown with a black ribbon at the British Academy Film Awards on Sunday.

The Fellowship award is the highest accolade given by Bafta to someone who has made an exceptional contribution to film, television, or video games. As for shoes, while her gown covered her feet, Kate was reportedly wearing Prada's sold out Wavy-Cut heels in black suede. The royals had the best seats at the Royal Albert Hall in London, and were welcomed by BAFTA chief executive Amanda Berry.
