LONDON - All eyes were on Duchess Catherine over the weekend when she attended the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards, more commonly known as the BAFTA Awards. Kate Middleton, who is expecting her third child with the Duke of Cambridge, arrived at the Sunday event with Prince William.
Much like award shows in the United States, attendees at the London event were encouraged to wear all black in support of the #MeToo and #TimesUp initiatives at this years BAFTAs, which are the British equivalent to the Oscars.
Duchess Catherine opted for a green cap-sleeved gown and coordinating emerald accessories. She wore her hair down in her signature loose curls and carried a black clutch that matched her suede Prada heels. William wore a traditional black tuxedo for the evening.
The attire of the soon-to-be mom of three didnt go unnoticed by Twitter users, who were quick to call her out for not supporting the movements by wearing black on the red carpet.

Good. Kate doesn’t kowtow to each and every #I’mOffended!
Good for her. She may be one of the sparks to lead women out of this moment. Some appear stuck in the role of victim.
Any assault is horrible and wrong, but try to find the strength to move on with your life. Don’t let your spirit become stuck in a position of weakness. Most adults need role models too, although we don’t like to admit it.
They can outrage all they want; the Royals are not supposed to take sides in political matters.
Calling on the monarchy to be political
... is just about the annihilation of the modern British Constitution
I am quite fond of her. Especially how she drives the left up the wall in this instance and I recall a few years ago how the feminazi types were mad with her for wearing pantyhose and making it mainstream and fashionable again for women.
I believe the Royals always wear a unique color to an affair.. no blending in
Democracy is freedom, you know: freedom to do exactly what the mob tells you to do and think exactly what the mob tells you to think.
Kate was probably the smartest person there...................
Unfortunately, it appears to be a soft black with a black velvet sash. On camera anyway. Im sure it is a shade of green though.
Liberal women have all the emotional maturity of a fifteen year old girl, including the inability to know when to stop whining and keep their mouths shut.
The metoos etc are a pack of phonies who are doing more harm to victims than help...
the outrageous is the fact that most of them were never raped, molested or even spoken too se3xually by men but decided to add their little bit for a numbers game...
the ones who were accosted in some way should have spoken up years ago....they had celebrity and a mic and a voice that REAL victims never have....
SHAME ON THEM !!!
Its not a brave act to come out now years later just because everyone else is doing it...bravery was speaking out years ago when it could have helped...
Good for Kate for not buckling under to their idiocy...
Oh and I was a REAL victim but I wont be wearing black to anything this year either...
I don’t agree with them...
There is strict protocol for royals to stay out of this kind of fad/political bs. She was following this protocol as the press reported that she would last week.
