After a two-year hiatus, Prince William and Princess of Wales Kate Middleton attended this year’s British Academy Film Awards on Sunday evening.

The couple haven’t attended the awards show since 2020, but Kensington Palace confirmed last week that they would be appearing – and they have.

The two walked the red carpet, William wearing a black tuxedo with a velvet jacket, and Kate sporting a stunning one-shoulder white dress with a pair of black evening gloves. The dress was designed by Alexander McQueen, and she had previously worn it to the 2019 awards, according to Vanity Fair, this time giving it a new look.

She accessorized with a pair of long floral earrings and a black smokey eye.

The event is set to take place at the Royal Festival Hall in Southbank, London.

The royal duo missed the 2021 BAFTA awards due to the passing of Prince Phillip, who died just a day before the scheduled ceremony. Last year, they were unable to attend due to “journal constraints,” a rep told Variety at the time.

Prince William has been president of the BAFTAs since 2010.

Some of this year’s nominees for Best Picture include ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’, ‘Elvis’ and ‘The Banshees of the Inisherin’. For best lead actress, Viola Davis is nominated for her role in “The Woman King”, as well as Ana de Armas for her character in “Blonde”. Austin Butler is also up for lead actor for his lead role in “Elvis.”

William and Kate’s appearance at the awards comes just weeks after her brother Prince Harry released his tell-all memoir, titled ‘Spare’.

In the bombshell book, Harry alleged his brother pushed him to the ground and physically ‘attacked’ him in November 2019 during a row over the Duke of Sussex and Meghan Markle’s relationship with the press.

He also claimed his brother warned him not to propose to Markle and thought their relationship was moving “too fast”.

The prince and princess have made no public statement about the jaw-dropping biography.

The 76th Annual BAFTA Awards airs Sunday, February 19 at 2 p.m.
