Kate Middleton's Green Gown At The BAFTAs Has Earned Her A Lot Of Criticism

Date February 19, 2018

The BAFTAs held on Sunday. Like the Golden Globes, a majority of the attendees showed up in black to support the Times Up and Me Too movements. The Duchess of Cambridge was the night's biggest exception.

Kate Middleton stayed traditional

Kate Middleton, who is expecting, showed up at the Royal Albert Hall in a green Jenny Packham gown with black details. She was accompanied by her husband, Prince William.

Her choice of a black sash was a subtle nod to the anti-sexual harassment campaigns.


As a member of the British royal family, the Duchess would have broken protocol if she had worn black like everyone else. This would count as openly attaching herself to a political movement.

Fans are not happy

Her decision to align with traditional values at a time like this has, however, been criticized by her disappointed fans.


But, there were a few people who felt that the Duchess of Cambridge did just enough by wearing a black sash.

Recall that the duchess wore a black gown last year for the BAFTAs. And there had been speculations that she would show up in a black gown with metallic or colored details. The expectation was that she would continue with the new 'modern royal' streak.

Black won at the BAFTAs

Kate Middleton may have showed up in green, but she looked stunning all the same. Her dark green gown was paired with a Mascaro clutch.

Still, black was the winning color of the night. Salma Hayek, Emma Roberts, Lupita Nyong'o, Angelina Jolie, and others were stunned in black.



Reese Witherspoon was not at the Royal Albert Hall, but she tweeted her support:

So happy to see my sisters making @TIMESUPNOW a Global Campaign.



It's great to see that the campaign to address sexual harassment moves outside Hollywood into film institutions in other countries.
