Grammys Shmammys: Kate Middleton and Prince William Just Stunned on the BAFTAs Red Carpet

They may not be the biggest names in music royalty (although we'd do anything for a duet Kate/Meghan album), but they're the biggest names in actual royalty...and they just hit the red carpet.

Prince William and Kate Middleton arrived at the BAFTAs (British Academy Film and Television Arts, for us newbies) and, damn, they looked magnificent.

The duchess wore an ethereal flowing one-shoulder white gown with floral details by Alexander McQueen and embraced her all-out princess aesthetic with sparkly white heels. William went with a classic black tux and white pocket square.

Middleton wore her hair in an updo that showed off a pair of her late mother-in-law Princess Diana’s massive diamond, pearl and silver earrings. She also took a cue from her sister-in-law Meghan Markle and finished off her look with a smoky eye and sparkly lip gloss—something the Duchess of Sussex wore on Thursday during her and Prince Harry’s night out at the Endeavour Fund Awards.

Prince William is presenting the Fellowship award to film editor Thelma Schoonmaker. This award is given to an individual in recognition of an outstanding and exceptional contribution to film, games or television.

Just one question: Are Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis allowed to stay up late to watch their pop on TV at the awards? It's only fair!
