The Duchess of Cambridge is an expert at dressing in the right outfit for every occasion.
Now well practised at adhering to royal protocol, Catherine always dresses both stylishly and appropriately. Whether she’s heading to a lavish evening event or visiting a charity, the Duchess of Cambridge routinely masters the fashion rules.
But this year’s BAFTA awards ceremony promises to present the Duchess with a rather awkward outfit dilemma.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be guests of honour at the ceremony on 18th February. However,vmany of the attendees of the awards will pay a sartorial homage to the Time’s Up movement, following in the same footsteps as the attendees of the Golden Globes, who dressed in all-black to stand united with victims of sexual abuse.
A letter, circulated “on behalf of a collective of UK-based female film and television industry leaders”, has been sent out to male and female BAFTA attendees, asking them to wear black on the red carpet. Its purpose is to make a “strong, unifying and simple statement”.
However, this message will likely prove pretty troubling for Catherine, who, as a member of the royal family is required to not make political statements. The royal family are well-known for remaining neutral on all matters – whether social or political.
