Sunday’s event marked the first time the couple, who have made it their tradition to attend the biggest night in UK cinema each year, have attended in three years.
William has been the president of Bafta since 2010 and Kate first attended the event with her husband in 2017.
For his outfit, William kept things classic and simple in a double-breasted black velvet tuxedo jacket.
Kate sported glamorous makeup with a pink lipstick and a dark smokey eye, and swept her hair behind her shoulders for the occasion.
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.
Meanwhile other listings were selling the earrings, which have sold out on Zara’s website, for £95

Kate’s white toga-style gown featured a fitted bodice, cinched waist and flowing floor-length skirt.
The outfit is one she has worn in the past, including to the BAFTAs in 2019, but she has tweaked the shoulder detailing on this occasion to include a train.
It had previously featured a floral detail across the left shoulder.
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 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.
