The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate risked a backlash last night as she broke ranks with actresses and chose not to wear black at the Bafta awards.
Pregnant Kate, 36, wore a dark forest green gown by British designer Jenny Packham following weeks of speculation over whether she would wear black in a public show of support for Hollywood’s stance against sexual harassment.
Almost every actress on the red carpet wore black, including A-listers Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lawrence and Margot Robbie, making the Duchess’ choice all the more striking.
Tradition dictates that the Royal Family avoids anything that could be construed as a political statement, but there had been speculation Kate could wear a patterned black gown to demonstrate she backed the Time’s Up movement, but also respected royal protocol.
Kate wore an empire line dress in a deep shade of green, which was complemented by a dazzling emerald necklace and earrings. Perhaps in a subtle nod to the movement, she accessorised with a black bow above her bump, matching her shoes and clutch handbag.
But seem some people are not buying it wit below comments.
