Kensington Palace has confirmed that Prince William and Duchess Catherine will once again attend the British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards - the British equivalent of the Oscars.

Kate, 36, who is currently expecting her third little prince or princess in April, made her debut on the red carpet last year in a custom-made, floor-length gown from British designer Alexander Queen. She braved arctic temperatures with the off-the-shoulder design to show-off green and violet embroidery and satin ribbon detailing.

Catherine braved the cold at last year's BAFTAs with an off-the-shoulder gown embellished with green and violet flowers, and satin ribbon detailing.

Prince William, who has served as president of BAFTA since 2010, has previously donned a tux to attend the event on a handful of occasions. This time around, the 35-year-old royal will also present the Fellowship award - the ceremony's highest accolade - to actor Sir Ridley Scott.

This year's event is set to take place on Sunday 18 February at the Royal Albert Hall. It will be hosted by Absolutely Fabulous star Joanna Lumley.
