18 February 2018 – Time’s Up & Emerald jewels 
In the lead up to the 71st BAFTA Award Ceremony, tensions were running high on whether the Duchess would follow many female celebirties in wearing black for the event in support of the Time’s Up movement (most actresses wore black for the event). However, the Duchess choose to wear a dark green Jenny Packham gown with a black sash, which is thought to be a subtle nod to Time’s Up. The Royal family has a strict policy of avoiding anything which could be construed as a political statement. Whatever she chose to wear to the event was going to be the topic of headlines and conversation. It was felt the subdued green with black accessories was the best compromise. She finished her look with stunning jewels from an emerald and diamond set. The movie Three Billboards was the big winner, taking home five awards, including Best film, Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor. The full post on the 71st BAFTA Award Ceremony can be read here.
