Kate bucks the trend in dark green dress at Baftas

The Duchess of Cambridge has stepped out in a dark green Jenny Packham dress for a glitzy night at the Baftas.

Pregnant Kate arrived on the red carpet with her husband the Duke of Cambridge for the awards ceremony.

Most nominees and other guests wore black in support of the Time's Up campaign.

Stars followed the lead set at the Golden Globes in January and adopted an all-black dress code following a campaign in the wake of the Hollywood sexual harassment scandal.

Upon their arrival, William and Kate met the chief executive of Bafta, Amanda Berry, and a host of other representatives from the organisation.

Later, William, who is president of Bafta, will present the Fellowship award.
It is the highest accolade given by Bafta to someone who has made an exceptional contribution to film, television, or video games.

This year the recipient of the annual prize is Sir Ridley Scott, the British filmmaker behind Hannibal, Black Hawk Down and Kingdom of Heaven.

Sir Ridley's latest film, All the Money in the World, had to be recast after its lead actor Kevin Spacey was accused of sexual assault, with Christopher Plummer taking his place.
