Kate Middleton : Why wasn't she dressed in black to the Baftas 2018 ?

Allison Janney holds her award for Supporting Actress for I Tonya

The Duchess of Cambridge graced the red carpet on Sunday evening for the 71st British Academy Film Awards.

But while most guests adhered to the "unofficial black dress code" in support of the Time's Up campaign against sexual harassment - Kate Middleton was one of the few women who did not.

Last year, Kate wore a spectacular bardot-style Alexander McQueen black gown with a printed floral design, while William wore a traditional tux and bow tie.

They wore t-shirts with the slogan, "Time's Up Theresa", and were staging their protest on behalf of feminist group Sisters Uncut, which aims to take action for domestic violence services.

Oil prices search for momentum, though inflation looms
Crude oil prices climbed Rs 61 to Rs 4,033 per barrel in futures trade today as participants raised bets on positive global cues. WTI was at a premium of 36 cents a barrel to the Dubai oil yesterday, compared with an average discount of about US$2 over 2017.

It is against royal protocol for a member of the royal family to make a political statement, even one as universally accepted as standing against sexual harassment and assault.

Many, numerous celebs in attendance opted to wear black to show their support of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, just as has been the case for award shows recently in the United States.

Middleton also said that her children's interest in movies came from Prince William, who also loves watching movies. The black waistband could also be her way of giving nod to the Time's Up movement without fully integrating herself into it. However, for some social media users, that still didn't excuse Kate from not participating.

Most male and female attendees at the BAFTAs stuck to the dress code of all black, on everything from trouser suits to gowns.

With his film winning five awards in all at these precursor prizes, the actor was in a buoyant mood backstage for our interview. Rockwell donned a Time's Up pin on his tuxedo and spoke on why the campaign for gender equality was important to him.

The Duchess of Cambridge has received criticism after wearing a dark green dress at the ceremony. Other people tried to defend her by saying that probably that black sash that she wore was her way of showing her support without going full black.

Someone else stated that they were "disappointed" in the duchess for not wearing black, writing: "Disappointed in #KateMiddleton #DuchessofCambridge not wearing black to the #EEBAFTAs It's not a political thing. It's a woman thing". Is she the most stunning Princess the Royal family has ever seen?

"It often has [been used as a platform] in the past, I think in different years there have been different issues", she said after nominations were announced.

It's a dilemma - amplified by Prince William's position as president of BAFTA.
