Duchess of Cambridge Under Fire for Wearing Green at BAFTAs

Duchess of Cambridge Under Fire for Wearing Green at BAFTAs

This year's BAFTA awards echoed January's Golden Globes, where all the stars wore black outfits in support of the victims of sexual abuse and harassment.

One tweet that has over 2,000 likes read: "Quite a bummer to see that the Duchess of Cambridge didn't wear black to the #BAFTAs and not a #TimesUp pin on either Cambridge". We must cut Middleton a break, the Royal Family never takes a stance on anything political.

While another wrote: "Ahhh nice to see the feminists out in full force tonight criticising Kate Middleton for having the cheek to CHOOSE whatever she wants to wear tonight!" There would have been a fallout from the Royal Family if Kate would have chosen to wear black for the evening. He and his wife Kate often show their support for the arts charity by attending events including the annual ceremony, and Young Game Designers and BAFTA Kids events.

Kate Middleton has attracted a fair share of criticism for ignore the Time's Up campaign's dress code at the BAFTAs last night. She didn't wear red or hot pink.

Expecting her third child, Kate stood out in her olive green Jenny Packham gown, standing out from the crowd dressed in black. Many people said Time's Up isn't about politics, but rather about raising awareness about sexual harassment and assault against women. That includes talented women in the race for best actress: Annette Bening, "Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool", Frances McDormand, "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri", Margot Robbie, "I, Tonya", Sally Hawkins, "The Shape of Water" and Saoirse Ronan, "Lady Bird". "It's a woman thing".

Prince William presented a Bafta Fellowship to director Sir Ridley Scott, whose films, he said, were among his "personal favourites".

The Brennan Center for Justice estimated that the old map had accounted for an additional three to four GOP seats in Congress. The new map won't apply to March's special election in southwestern Pennsylvania's 18th district .

Prior to the awards, there was speculation as to whether Kate would comply with the unofficial dress code of wearing black in support of the Times Up movement. English actress Joanna Lumley took over hosting duties from Stephen Fry (who hosted the BAFTAs for 12 years), this year and she left the celeb-packed audience in hysterics.

"I think she might have made a decision to take the hit for the Royal team by opting to go against the trend of the night".
