Best Photos of The Royals As Guests Of Honour At The Baftas

The red carpet will be rolled out later on Sunday for the 2022 BAFTAs ceremony. A-Listers galore will be putting on
their glad rags for the awards at the Royal Albert Hall, with Rebel Wilson
hosting this year.

While the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge normally make an appearance, this
year, they have bowed out. Kate made her
debut in February 2017; Prince William, meanwhile, has walked the red carpet various
times before in his role as President of BAFTA. 

Let’s take a look at when the royals have attended the BAFTAs in past
years, starting with…

Before the pandemic broke out, the royals enjoyed a night at the BAFTAs.
For the Duchess’ most recent appearance, she looked stunning in a white
and gold gown by Alexander McQueen with her hair styled in an elegant updo.

That year marked William’s tenth year as President of BAFTA and he
presented the Fellowship award to film producer Kathleen Kennedy, who has
produced Star Wars movies, including The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi and Rogue
One, as well as Jurassic Park, ET The Extra-Terrestrial and the Back to the
Future trilogy.

Prince William’s grandmother the Queen didn’t strictly attend the
BAFTAs, but she was given an honorary trophy in 2013 in recognition of her
lifetime support of British film and television. Sir Kenneth Branagh did the
honours and presented Her Majesty with the award at Windsor Castle, thanking
her for being a patron of so many entertainment bodies and charities.

He also quipped that the Queen was the “most memorable Bond girl
yet” referring to her cameo alongside Daniel Craig in the London 2012
Olympics opening ceremony sketch.

Before they were renamed the BAFTAs in 1976, they were known as the SFTA
Awards (the Society of Film and Television Arts Awards). Princess Anne is
pictured here in March 1971 with comedians Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise,
presenting the double act with the award for the best light entertainment
programme for The Morecambe and Wise Show. Anne was President of BAFTA
from 1972 to 2000.
