Kensington Palace have confirmed that Prince William and Kate Middleton are to attend the 2020 BAFTA Awards on Sunday 2nd February at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

It is set to be the second year in a row that the Duke and Duchess will have made appearance at the esteemed awards ceremony. 

 

William will be on stage to present the award of the Fellowship, the BAFTA's highest accolade. This year's recipient is film producer Kathleen Kennedy, whose impressive repertoire includes work on films such as Star Wars, Jurassic Park and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. As the 73rd edition of the awards  ceremony, the event also marks the Duke's 10th year as BAFTA's President.

In light of the ongoing climate crisis, the BAFTAs have asked attendees to "dress sustainably" for the red carpet at this year's event. Guests will be provided with a sustainable fashion guide, specially created by the London College of Fashion’s Centre for Sustainability, to help them make more informed choices, which includes suggestions such as re-wearing existing gowns to the ceremony, buying vintage or simply renting dresses or suits for the evening.
