Kate Middleton Did Not Wear Time’s Up Black Dress Code To The BAFTA’s
As Prince William and Kate Middleton hit the red carpet for the BAFTA Awards (i.e. the British Oscars), seven-month pregnant Kate had all eyes on her given that she decided to wear a deep green gown rather than a black outfit, in support of the Time’s Up movement.
Even though the royal family tends to stay away from anything political (they don’t even vote!), Time’s Up’s fight to end the harassment, assault and mistreatment of women in the workplace is not aligned with any political party, it’s still more of a public stand than the royals typically take on hot-button issues, People magazine reports.
Still, Twitter users were a bit upset at the royal.
I know the Royals aren’t supposed to get involved with “protests” or anything… but would it really have been THAT bad for Kate Middleton to wear black??? #BAFTAs2018
