Guests attending the BAFTAs 2018, including Rochelle Humes and Jennifer Lawrence, were requested by the Time’s Up movement to wear black in support of sexual assault victims.
With many abiding by the dress code, for some it was a shock to see Kate Middleton – who is heavily pregnant with baby number three – arrive on the red carpet in a green Jenny Packham dress.
Causing controversy, everyone was talking about the fact the Duchess of Cambridge had not decided to get on board with the movement.
However, royals fans have rushed to defend Prince William’s wife, who was by her side at the event, for not following the trend.
Following the idea that royals are not allowed to wear black unless in mourning, many thought Kate’s choice to wear green was suitable for the occasion.
In a poll conducted by OK! Online, 57 per cent of 1,000 voters believed it was fine for Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s mum to skip the black.

Due to the fact she’s a royal, they understood the 36 year old has certain protocol to follow.
Only 10 per cent of voters admitted they were disappointed with Kate’s decision.
Many, however, believe Kate didn’t shun the movement altogether as she wore a black band around her baby bump and also wore plenty of emerald jewellery – another symbol that shows support of the Time’s Up movement.
In the poll, 33 per cent admitted Kate’s jewels – of which she had a fancy little trick with – were her way of supporting.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge followed many of their royal etiquette rules on the BAFTAs red carpet on Sunday as their behaviour was explained by royal experts.
From not posing for photos to Kate’s clutch bag, the royals stayed true to their heritage rules.
