As expected, Kate Middleton and Prince William stole the BAFTAs in London on Sunday night. The event gathers the biggest stars from across the globe. Recent rumors suggest that some stars may be complaining about the Duchess of Cambridge's appearance during the event.
Sunday's night's BAFTAs was graced by some of the biggest Hollywood stars of all time including Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman. However, once Kate Middleton and Prince William stepped into the red carpet, the show stopped. All eyes were on the Duchess of Cambridge and her Alexander McQueen gown.
For starters, Prince William became the president of BAFTA on February 2010 and since then, he and Kate Middleton have been very supportive of the event and its fundraising gatherings. According to the Daily Beast, Sunday's big show was the first time Kate Middleton and Prince William graced the awards ceremony as a couple.
A source told the outlet that the senior staff were worried about Kate Middleton stealing the attention from the other stars. Another insider said some believe that Prince William will get his way at the BAFTAs by bringing his wife along. However, Kate's attendance should not have been an issue since she is the wife of the organization's president.
Kate Middleton has the ability to steal any show or event she attends. The BAFTAs was a good example. While fears of her overshadowing the other stars with her popularity and grace were rampant, it was obvious that the Duchess of Cambridge took the hearts of the audiences. Whether Hollywood stars or reporters, everyone was captivated by the wife of Prince William.
Forbes notes that Kate Middleton and Prince William were celebrated at the BAFTAs. It is believed that Princess Kate and Prince William's appearance brought international appeal to the awards ceremony.
Kate Middleton has grown in terms of her influence on people. She is followed not only because of her iconic fashion statements but also because of her many activities related to diplomatic reasons, charities, and foreign affairs.
