Princess Kate: She wows at the BAFTAs

The British Academy Film Awards were presented in London on Sunday. On the red carpet, Princess Kate (41) once again caused a fashionable déjà vu: she attended the award ceremony in the same sleeveless, white dress as in 2019. Only the shoulders of the Alexander McQueen creation had changed: Instead of silk flowers, she now adorned a long loop. The Duchess of Cornwall combined black velvet gloves and gold earrings in the shape of petals. She wore her hair loose and parted in the middle. In 2019, she opted for an updo and diamond jewelry.

Princess Kate's companion Prince William (40) also appeared in a similar outfit to 2019: the British heir to the throne appeared again in a black suit, a white shirt and a black bow tie. In contrast to 2019, however, he had opted for a velvet tuxedo and black leather lace-up shoes. Prince William has been President of the BAFTAs since 2010.

In addition to the royal couple, the film "Nothing New in the West" was also a hit at this year's BAFTAs. The world war drama by Edward Berger (53) received seven awards, including the main prize in the “Best Film” category. In addition, "Nothing New in the West" was honored as "Best Foreign Language Film". Director Berger was also able to celebrate separate awards: the BAFTA for "Best Director" went to the Wolfsburg-based director. Along with Lesley Paterson and Ian Stokell, he was also honored for "Best Adapted Screenplay". The other three awards for the German contribution were for "Best Film Music", "Best Camera" and "Best Sound". The film was able to convert half of the 14 nominations into prizes - more than any other film.

Other winners of the evening included Cate Blanchett (53) and Austin Butler (31): Blanchett received the award for "Best Actress" for her performance in "Tár". Elvis actor Butler (31) prevailed as "Best Actor". Director Martin McDonagh (52) snatched the award for "Best Original Screenplay". In addition, his "The Banshees of Inisherin" was named "Best British Film" and both supporting actor categories went to the Irish tragic comedy: Kerry Condon (40) and Barry Keoghan (30) triumphed.
