Prince William and Catherine in fits of laughter after onlooker’s remark on the red carpet

Such a great sense of humour!

Prince William

Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, walked the red carpet for the annual Bafta Awards tonight.

Catherine looked stunning in an Alexander McQueen gown, previously worn on the Duchess’s royal tour of Southeast Asia in 2012. Prince William also opted for a tux he had worn before.

While the couple were walking the red carpet tonight, one well-wisher shouted out to Catherine, “You look beautiful!” Then another quickly added, “So do you Will!” The couple, who are well known for their jovial sense of humour, reacted with a roar of laughter, as reported by Hello!

Those walking the red carpet have been asked by the London College of Fashion’s Centre for Sustainability to consider the environmental footprint of their wardrobe choices.

“Sustainability is very important to Bafta, and we’re doing more than ever before,” a Bafta spokesperson told Grazia.

“The goal is that the EE British Academy Film Awards 2020 will be carbon neutral, working towards having a net positive impact on the environment. From travel and food, to branding and materials, Bafta is ensuring the awards are as sustainable as possible.”

“This year marks the duke’s 10thyear as Bafta’s President and his involvement has been invaluable to the work we do, from launching our global new talent activity in 2011, to supporting the Bafta Scholarships programme and assisting with the most far-reaching fundraising campaign Bafta has ever undertaken.

“We are immensely grateful to their royal highnesses for their continued support.”
