On Sunday night, The Prince of Wales and Kate Middleton provided royal fans with a glimpse of their affection on the Bafta red carpet. As they mingled alongside movie stars in subtly coordinated monochromatic looks, the couple added glamour to this year's 2023 BAFTA Film Awards.

Kate looked glamorous in a white Alexander McQueen gown she had worn to the event in 2019. She accessorized it with black velvet opera gloves and dangling gold earrings from fashion retailer Zara.

Kate Middleton wore a white Alexander McQueen gown

On Sunday, April 7, Kate and William arrived at the Bafta Film Awards to honor the winners of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards. Clad in black velvet tuxedos with elegant makeup for the special occasion, Kate looked gorgeous.

On the night, The Duchess of Cambridge donned a white Alexander McQueen gown that she first donned at the BAFTA Film Awards in 2019. For this special event, she restyled it by changing its asymmetric neckline's floral shoulder embellishments into an elegant flowing chiffon swathe and accessorized with bold oversized rose gold floral earrings from Zara as well as full-length black velvet opera gloves.

She coordinated her earrings with her hairstyle, which was swept up into a low updo. To complete the look, she paired her custom dress with Aquazzura pointed-toe pumps that highlighted all of the glitzy details within it.

It's no secret that the Duchess of Cambridge is an eco-conscious Princess of Wales, often seen recycling designer dresses for public appearances. That doesn't mean her style has become stale; rather, she always strives to style each one differently each time.

At the Baftas 2023, Middleton dazzled in a one-shoulder white silk chiffon Alexander McQueen gown that exuded sophistication and ethereal glamour. Her Grecian drapes transformed her into an enchanting princess, especially with her long black hair styled into an updo.

At the Royal Variety Performance earlier this year, she donned another McQueen dress for her first official event of the year. This embroidered tulle number, featuring a lace V-neckline and semi-sheer cap sleeves, quickly became one of her go-to picks.

McQueen is no stranger to her fans, but reports indicate that she also has an affinity for Jenny Packham. At the Cannes Film Festival two years ago, she donned their glitzy green sequin Georgia gown and has since been seen sporting many other high-shine pieces from the label.

She has previously donned Beulah London's raspberry-red Calla Rose floral silk dress for mental health minutes and again in September 2020 while on royal duties, such as visiting London Bridge Job Centre and Beigel Bake Brick Lane Bakery with her husband. Additionally, Beulah London is a favorite of hers - often seen wearing its floral prints.

On Sunday night, the royal couple made a glamorous return to the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) awards. Dressed in matching black and white ensembles, it marked their first official appearance as Prince and Princess of Wales at the ceremony.

At the ceremony, William donned a tuxedo and Kate donned an Alexander McQueen white one-shoulder gown, which has been reworked for the occasion. To complete her ensemble, Kate accessorized with long black opera gloves, large statement rose gold earrings and a small black clutch.

William has worn a tuxedo to the awards show multiple times since becoming president of BAFTA in 2010; it's no surprise that the Prince frequently attends the awards show.

He donned a classic black suit with white shirt, black bow tie and pocket square. Additionally, he paired the suit with a low-cut vest - often seen at black tie events.

Although he did not wear his signature velvet shoes, William looked dapper in a black tuxedo. It was an effortless style choice and he seemed contented to be there.

This year's BAFTA Film Awards are a celebration of the best in film, games and television. Hosted by TV presenter Alison Hammond and actor Richard E. Grant, you can watch it live on BritBox!

In addition to honoring William's award winners, the ceremony will also pay homage to Queen Elizabeth II - Helen Mirren who played her in 2006's The Queen is expected to deliver a tribute.

Prince William and Kate Middleton are known for their impeccable taste in fashion, which was evident this evening when it came to their ensembles. The Duke of Cambridge donned a tailored tuxedo, while Kate chose an Alexander McQueen one-shoulder white gown which she accessorized with long black gloves - an addition new for this event.

William and Kate shared an endearing moment while walking the red carpet, as they gave each other a light pat on the back in video footage captured before the ceremony. It differs from traditional "love taps," but it's an endearing way for them to express how much they care about one another.

They chatted with Austin Butler

On Sunday evening, the British royal family returned to the Bafta Film Awards with Prince William and Kate Middleton bringing the royal title for the first time since 2020. Dressed in black tuxedos, the couple made a grand entrance at London's Royal Festival Hall.

After the awards were presented, Duchess Meghan and her husband met with BAFTA winners and EE Rising Star nominees, as well as Bafta Chairman Krishnendu Majumdar and Chief Executive Jane Millichip who paid homage to Queen Elizabeth for her patronage of arts before the ceremony began. Prior to her passing in September 2022, Queen Elizabeth had had an extended association with Academy; always present at events to show support for their work.

After the show, several of the night's biggest winners were seen chatting with Duke and Duchess: Austin Butler who won Best Actor for his performance in Elvis; Emma Mackey from Sex Education who received a nomination for her role in that same film; plus they all took pictures together.

Before the awards, they walked the red carpet together wearing white Alexander McQueen dresses that exuded Hollywood glamour. Accessorizing with gold earrings and black gloves to match their ensembles.

Kate's outfit was a reprise of last year's, but with cascading draping at the shoulder. To complete her ensemble, Kate donned matching black shoulder-length back gloves and carried a black clutch as an elegant finishing touch.

On their way to the ceremony, Kate Middleton gently touched her husband's shoulder as they chatted, and he immediately leant towards her. This moment has gone viral after it was captured on camera and is a classic body language gesture for couples.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are usually present at the Bafta Awards, though they missed 2021 due to Prince Philip's passing. Thankfully, they will return for this Sunday's 76th annual BAFTA Film Awards.

They posed for photos

On Sunday evening, Kate and William arrived at the 76th Bafta Film Awards looking glamorous and displaying their loving side. Kate donned a recycled white Alexander McQueen gown while William donned a smart black velvet tuxedo.

At the event, guests were encouraged to dress sustainably. Not only did many stars opt for eco-friendly dresses and tuxedos, but many also showcased recycled jewellery and created outfits with zero waste content.

Princess Kate walked the red carpet in a floor-length Alexander McQueen dress paired with long black gloves and gold jewelry, including Zara earrings.

She chose to sport her brunette locks in a signature wavy hair style. Her natural makeup glowed as she posed for photos alongside her husband, dressed in an elegant black suit.

Prince William, the heir to the throne and longtime fan of McQueen, has worn their label to numerous events such as a state dinner in Malaysia in 2020. Additionally, he has served as president of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts since 2010.

Though William kept his head down during the ceremony, he did engage some of the leaders of the academy, such as Bafta chairman Krishnendu Majumdar and chief executive Jane Millichip. He expressed gratitude to them both for their work, and showed an interest in a pre-recorded feature about Queen Elizabeth II's patronage of the arts.

The night's top winners included German movie All Quiet on the Western Front, which took home seven BAFTAs and three Oscars for its World War I drama. Additionally, it won for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Director.

Despite their hectic schedules, the couple made an appearance at this annual event held the week before the Academy Awards. They're known to be huge fans of the show and were joined by a plethora of celebrities on the red carpet.

From Jodie Turner-Smith to Ana de Armas, the red carpet was packed with fashion forward stars. Hollywood A-listers all exuded glamour and style in designer dresses adorned with sparkling jewels.

The BAFTA Film Awards are the UK's premier annual celebration of film and TV, often considered the last major award show before the Oscars. In 2019, they introduced several new awards to honor excellence across various sectors such as films, music and comedy. Furthermore, 2019 marked the introduction of EE Rising Star and BAFTA Fellowship awards for top costume designer in Britain - two highly-coveted accolades!
