The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were left in fits of laughter after an exchange with a fan at the BAFTA Awards 2020 on Sunday. Prince William and Kate walked the red carpet at London's Royal Albert Hall, with the Duchess wearing a white and gold embroidered Alexander McQueen gown and stunning Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery.

One well-wisher told Kate "You look beautiful," while another quickly added "So do you Will!" to which the royal couple reacted with a roar of laughter. Guests at the BAFTAs were encouraged to rewear an outfit or a sustainable alternative. The Duchess honoured this by wearing her Alexander McQueen gown first seen at the state dinner in Malaysia on the Cambridges' diamond jubilee tour in 2012. The Duke also wore a repeat tux.
