The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge enjoyed a starry night at the BAFTAs on Sunday, adding a touch of royal power to the ceremony. William, who is President of BAFTA, was joined by his wife Kate at the Royal Albert Hall. Bradley Cooper, Margot Robbie, Olivia Colman and Rami Malek were among the stars who donned their gladrags for what is dubbed the biggest night in the British film calendar.

The celebrity guests started arriving at the venue from 4pm, but the red carpet went into shutdown mode when William and Kate made their grand entrance just before 7pm. The royals were welcomed by BAFTA Chief Executive Amanda Berry, who escorted the couple to their seats inside the stunning London landmark.

Kate, who has attended the BAFTAs twice before, including once when she was pregnant with Prince Louis, pulled out all the stops for her glitzy night out. See the best photos…

The Duchess looked incredible in a one-shouldered white gown by her go-to designer, Alexander McQueen. The dress featured a floral motif on the shoulder and ruffled detailing. Kate actually wore the dress to Prince Charles’ 70th birthday dinner last November, but in hot pink.
