Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge and her husband Prince William are now at the 2018 EE British Academy Film Awards (BAFTAs) and Kate is proud flaunting her baby bump. While virtually all female A-listers turned out in black, Kate bucked the trend, opting to dress her baby bump in a very dark green number.
Middleton's black sash is likely a nod to the Time's Up moment, which seeks to end sexual harassment in the workplace, across every industry worldwide.
As a member of the royal family, Kate is not allowed to make a political statement, and while the Time's Up campaign is not a political topic, wearing black would have seen her make a public stand on the issue. However, the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge followed royal convention and went for a neutral option as she accompanied Prince William, who is president of BAFTA, to the ceremony.

However with all eyes on the Duchess of Cambridge as she faced one of her greatest fashion challenges to date after a letter from actresses and industry leaders urged BAFTA attendees to don all-black, the royal was left with a hard choice. "I know the Royals aren't supposed to get involved with "protests" or anything. but would it really have been THAT bad for Kate Middleton to wear black???" a Twitter user wrote. (Watson has pledged 1 million pounds, according to the GoFundMe website.) Much like stars at Hollywood's Golden Globes did last month, British A-listers chose to wear black at the Sunday awards show to spread awareness of their movement.
