The Princess of Wales was dazzling in white as she walked the red carpet alongside a host of A-listers at the Baftas tonight.

Kate Middleton, 41, looked every inch the Hollywood star as she joined her husband Prince William at the star-studded event  at Royal Festival Hall in London tonight.

The royal mother-of-three opted for an Alexander McQueen one shoulder gown for the occasion, which she paired with a set of black opera gloves and a £18 pair of gold Zara earrings. 

She sported glamorous makeup with a pink lipstick and a dark smokey eye, and swept her hair behind her shoulders for the occasion.

The couple, who have made it their tradition to attend the biggest night in UK cinema each year,  appeared in high spirits as they arrived at the awards ceremony.

She has worn Alexander McQueen – one of her favourite fashion brands – on numerous occasions, most notably choosing its creative director Sarah Burton to design her wedding dress.

However Kate’s dramatic opera gloves were a new look for the royal, who hasn’t been spotted wearing a similar accessory before.

However the gloves are the must-have accessory of the year, according to stylists.

Sienna Miller opted for a black lace pair for the Bafta’s last year, while Olivia Rodrigo, Millie Bobby Brown and Euphoria’s Sydney Sweeney have also been snapped in opera gloves on the red carpet.

TV and celebrity fashion expert Miranda Holder previously told FEMAIL the accessory has become an essential for any formal occasion.

She explained: ‘Old fashioned Hollywood glamour is the order of the day as celebrities clamour to be the ultimate icons of sophistication following the more sartorially barren two years of the pandemic.

‘Now it’s all about making a statement with panache and elegance – and nothing says this better than a pair of opera gloves.’

The couple have made their attendance a yearly occasion, with this year marking the fifth time they have walked the red carpet at the event. 

While Kate dazzled in her gown, Prince William also looked dapper in a bow-tie and black dinner suit which he had also worn before, with a pair of smart black loafer shoes. 

The Prince, President of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), and The Princess will watch the Awards ceremony before meeting category winners and EE Rising Star Award nominees. 

The royal couple have made the event an annual date in the diary, however they last attended in 2020, shortly before the Covid-19 pandemic brought lockdown to the UK.

The couple’s appearance tonight comes days after the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall made their first joint official visit to the county since taking on their new roles.

William, 40, and Kate, 41, visited the harbour town of Falmouth earlier this month to learn about the area’s heritage at the National Maritime Museum Cornwall before visiting a community centre.

During their visit to the museum’s workshop, they helped those working on the refurbishment of the Kiwi, a 14-foot sailing dinghy which was presented to Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip as a wedding present from the Royal New Zealand Navy.

Looking effortlessly elegant, mother-of-three Kate sported a chestnut brown Hobbs coat she first wore on an official engagement in 2012, teamed with matching knee-high boots and a red outfit underneath. William looked dapper in a navy blazer and coordinating jumper.

The Princess of Wales looked particularly thrilled to see her old prep school teacher Jim Embury – who now volunteers at the museum – and greeted him with a hug.
