Royal fans and critics slammed the Duchess of Cambridge for her outfit of choice during the February 2018 awards show.
Kate Middleton and Prince William were present at the annual British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) on February 18, 2018.
All Cute All The Time shared that a feminist movement called Time’s Up announced that they wanted to take action and do what other stars did during the Golden Globes, in reference to the #MeToo movement.
The organization encouraged the guests of the BAFTA to wear black to show their support for the Time’s Up initiative.
Faith Family America reported that Middleton arrived in a green dress instead of black.
Upon learning of her fashion choice, many people immediately expressed their disappointment with the future queen on social media.
They said Middleton should have worn a black dress for the event.
Although, there were others who went to the Duchess’ aid and claimed that she had done nothing wrong.
Some fans also took notice of the Duchess' plunging neckline and thought that it was a little bit too much.
Middleton wore a Jenny Packham deep green cap-sleeved gown that had a thin black sash. She also wore emerald jewelry to match the ensemble.
A journalist stated, as shared by All Cute All The Time, "Apparently, she's not allowed to exercise HER feminist right to wear whatever color dress she chooses.”
It is no secret that the Royal Family normally does not take a public stand on issues like such, but some people felt that Middleton still could have supported the feminist group’s initiative.
Time’s Up is a movement that aims to do away with sexual harassment. It was founded on January 1, 2018, by Hollywood celebrities. The movement was created after the news about Weinstein surfaced all over the internet.
It has raised over $20 million for its legal defense fund as of February 2018. It also has already gathered over 200 volunteer lawyers.
