Kate Middleton matches in monochrome to husband William in white gown while Eddie Redmayne goes shirtless at the BAFTAs

The Princess of Wales wowed in a white floor-length white gown at theThe BAFTA Film Awards 2023. A beaming Kate Middleton was the picture of elegance as she swept along the red carpet in her one-shoulder gown teamed with long black gloves.

The mother-of-three delivered Hollywood glamour as she dazzled on the red carpet in monochrome, matching with her husband Prince William who looked smart in a black velvet jacket and bow-tie and white shirt. Kate paired the elegant look with statement rose gold flower earrings.

The royals smiled as they arrived at the event, which has moved from the Royal Albert Hall to the Royal Festival Hall within London’s Southbank Centre. The Prince of Wales has been the president of BAFTA since 2010.


His appointment to BAFTA’s presidency in February 2010 follows a long tradition of royal patronage. The BAFTAs brings the biggest names in cinema to the red carpet.

During the ceremony Dame Helen Mirren lead a commemoration to Prince Willam's grandmother the late Queen Elizabeth II. The veteran actress, 77, won an Oscar and a BAFTA for her depiction of the royal in 2006's biographical drama The Queen.
