Kate Middleton may have subtly showed her support for the #MeToo movement at the BAFTAs
Kate Middleton shows her support for the Me Too movement with a subtle nod which was made by her choice of clothing.
The BAFTA awards 2018 saw celebrities carrying forward the Me Too movement and with that in mind, the biggest question was if the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton would also be part of the movement.
As we all know, it is against the royal protocol for any member of the royal family to make a political statement, even though it might be speaking against sexual harassment and assault.
Keeping this in mind, it didn't seem possible that the Duchess would choose to wear a black gown to the award ceremony, despite her bringing her A-game to the last year's BAFTA with black, off-the-shoulder Alexander McQueen gown.
Nonetheless, Kate might have spoken a thousand words with just her choice of dress and the tiny detail she added to it. During the award ceremony, Kate and Prince William arrived looking their glamorous yet elegant self. While Prince William wore a black suit, Kate, looked like a Princess out of a fairytale book in her dark green empire waist gown by Jenny Packham.
But what caught the attention of many about the attire was a black sash that Kate decided to wear around her waist to pair up with the dress. One could say that this could have been a subtle nod to the black dress code which most celebrities opted to wear during the award show as a sign of solidarity with the #MeToo movement.
By choosing to wear a green dress with a black sash, Kate not only managed to abide the rules but also made a statement of her own. Both Prince William and Kate only started to attend the award ceremony from last year even though William has served as president of BAFTA since 2010, according to Vanity Fair.
Last year, it has been reported that attendees were specifically asked by the organizers to not take selfies with William and Kate during the ceremony. However, it is not certain if the same rule is being followed this year.
