Will the Duchess of Cambridge wear black to the BAFTAs?

Will the Duchess of Cambridge wear black to the BAFTAs?”

Royals are also encouraged against political statements, which will put Kate in a hard position if she does not wear a black gown, as she could be seen not to support the movement.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the BAFTAS previous year for the first time as a couple. There's much to look forward to, but perhaps the most exciting development in the proceedings is the confirmation that came earlier this week that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, will be attending the awards show.

After all, in keeping with royal protocol, the royal family has a policy of avoiding anything that could be seen as political statement.

Though if the Duchess of Cambridge decides to shun the dress code, she could face scrutiny from the movement.

Kate did wear black to last year's BAFTAs, stealing the show in a patterned off-the-shoulder Alexander McQueen gown, featuring a Bardot neckline, fitted bodice and a full skirt with multiple tiers.

The highlight of the British awards season is right around the corner, reaching its apex with the BAFTAs on Sunday, February 18.

This year, guests at the 2018 BAFTAs have reportedly been encouraged to wear all black to make a "strong, unifying and simple statement" in recognition of the #MeToo movement and Time's Up initiative.

BAFTAS' chairman, Jane Lush, was interviewed stating that, although the black dress code isn't officially a part of the BAFTAS code, "We too are determined that the fearless revelations, and make no mistake, they were very courageous, become a watershed moment for a real lasting change across the workforce in film, game and television".
