Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at BAFTAs

Here are more photos of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at last night’s BAFTAs – I covered the first photos yesterday. Prince William is the president of BAFTA and has been for years, so this is showing up for work for him. He and Kate have managed to attend the BAFTAs together three years in a row. I think this was their best year ever – by that I mean, they seemed comfortable around the glitterati, and they worked the receiving line rather well, making chit-chat with all the movie stars.

At first, people ID’d Kate’s dress as Jenny Packham, which is perfectly understandable because it really does look like a Packham design. It turns out that this is a custom McQueen, and she has this same dress in pink – she wore the pink one to Prince Charles’ birthday dinner at Buckingham Palace. She paired the dress with a pair of sparkle silver Jimmy Choo heels, diamond-and-pearl earrings which belonged to Princess Diana, and a diamond bracelet from the Queen. As I said yesterday, I think this is the best “eveningwear look” we’ve ever seen from Kate. Pulled together, flattering, age appropriate and genuinely glamorous.

Kensington Palace posted lots of behind-the-scenes videos from the BAFTAs, including Kate and William making conversation with various celebrities. I love the video of Kate talking to Spike Lee, I would absolutely love to know Spike’s thoughts on the duchess and on royalty in general.

There was also this creepy video of a completely silent auditorium as Will and Kate find their seats.
