Kate Middleton and Prince William to be the highlight at BAFTA Awards 2023

The BAFTA awards are held annually in the United Kingdom to celebrate remarkable pieces of entertainment from the past year. Prince William and Kate Middleton add significance to the event with their attendance. However, the couple has been unable to attend for the past two years. Firstly, it was due to the death of Prince Philip in 2021. Secondly, the royal family blamed “diary constraints” as reported by Deadline for the reason for their absence.


Prince William has been a President of the BAFTAs for over a decade and will be returning with his wife to the ceremony after a two-year-long hiatus. This will also mark the couple’s first BAFTA attendance since the onslaught of accusations from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Apart from the award ceremony, fans are excited to see the royal couple bring their glamor to the BAFTA red carpet. Especially after Prince William was told he was “beautiful too” the last time they attended in 2020.
