Heavily pregnant Kate Middleton has stepped on to the BAFTAs 2018 red carpet alongside husband Prince William.
Wearing a floating green dress, the Duchess of Cambridge will cause controversy with her choice as she boldly went against the all-black dress code requested by the Time’s Up movement – a stand against sexual harassment.
Believed to be designed by her favourite designer Jenny Packham, Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s mum did, however, flaunt her baby bump with the use of a black waist band – thought to be a nod towards the political statement others were making on the red carpet.
Kate also carried a black clutch to match.
However, it’s not thought Kate avoided the Time’s Up movement completely as her choice of green and full accessorie set of emerald jewels also gives a nod towards the campaign.
The green stone signifies “hope, renewal and growth” which has become a symbolic element of the Time’s Up initiative.

It was also a theme celebs such as Catherine Zeta Jones and Zoe Kravitz worked at the Golden Globes as a sign of following the important movement.
Kate Middleton may have a very good reason for not wearing black to the BAFTAs too, as royals have two very strict rules when it comes to the colour and politics.
As a member of the royal family, Kate would have been forbidden to make a political stance.
On The Monarchy’s website it states: “As head of state, the Queen has to remain strictly neutral with respect to political matters.”
Royals are also only ever allowed to wear all black when it involves a funeral.
