THE Baftas is one of the biggest nights in the showbiz calendar so red carpet royalty – as well as actual royalty – pulled out all the stops.
A-list celebs united with British royalty for the swanky event, which was hosted by Graham Norton at the Royal Albert Hall.
Kate Middleton lead the glamour on the red carpet in a gold and cream Alexander McQueen dress.
Guests at tonight's award ceremony are being encouraged to rewear old outfits or a hire an outfit as part of a sustainable fashion movement.
And the royal mum-of-three had done exactly that, choosing to rewear a dress she had first been pictured wearing eight years ago during her tour of Malaysia.
The Duchess freshened up her look by mixing up her accessories and was seen carrying a gold perspex clutch and wore a Van Cleef & Arpels earring and necklace set.
Prince William looked typically dapper in a classic tux as joined his wife on the red carpet of the Royal Albert Hall tonight.
Yesterday, the Sun exclusively revealed that William, 37, is "furious" over the all-white nominations at the awards, and is expected to mention it in his speech this evening.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been regulars at the awards ceremony since Prince William was made President of the BAFTAs in 2010.
Elsewhere in the glamorous arrivals, Margot Robbie did not disappoint in an elegant black lace gown.
Her Bombshell co-star Charlize Theron, added a pop of colour to proceedings in a violet pleated gown.
Meanwhile, Scarlett Johannson, who is nominated for best actress in her role in Marriage Story, looked breathtaking in all pink.
She wore a glistening pink beaded gown by Atelier Versace featuring a fluffy pink feather train, perfectly nailing red carpet glamour.
And the winner is... Bafta 2020 winners
