While one wrote, "Kate Middleton shuns #timesup black dress code, clearly not a woman's woman!", another said, "V.disappointed that Kate Middleton didn't wear BLACK in solidarity with other women".

But the Duchess of Cambridge, 36, stunned in a dark green Jenny Packham gown following weeks of speculation on her attire. The pregnant royal managed to find a solution to her most recent fashion conundrum: To wear black to this year's event, or not.

Prince William, an avid film buff who is president of the British Film Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) is inspiring Prince George as the pair bond over the latest releases.

"I have a hard time believing that the Duchess of Cambridge doesn't stand beside us just because she was wearing green", she tweeted.

Some of the most important actresses who took part in the event wore black, instead.

Lady Bird star Saoirse Ronan stepped out in a black dress which featured a section of feathered fringing before descending into a sheer skirt. Among them were Emma Watson, Lupita Nyong'o, Jennifer Lawrence and Angelina Jolie.

Kate Middleton Reflects on Appreciating Childhood

Prince William and Kate Middleton hit the red carpet for the second year in a row at the annual BAFTA Awards (the British equivalent of the Oscars) on Sunday.

Others went yet one step further to claim that the emeralds adorning her neck were a subtle nod to the movement as the gemstone is a symbol of hope.

As the first major awards ceremony this year in Europe, it was a pointed opportunity for the gathering glitterati to show their support for sexual assault victims in head-to-toe black, with a few exceptions. A simple black clutch matched her dress's sash, which sat right above her growing baby bump.

Dozens of beautifully dressed celebrities graced the BAFTAs 2018 red carpet on Sunday night, many of which opted for black ensembles in support of the Time's Up Movement.

But lending sartorial support to the movement that is fighting inequality and sexual harassment after allegations rocked the entertainment industry could be perceived as a breach of protocol, and the royal family must remain politically neutral at all times. She also got the support of fans, saying that the people who shamed her were part of the problem.
