The Duchess of Cambridge may have ignored the wear-all-black memo, but could her black ribbon have been a concession?

The Duchess of Cambridge eschewed the Time's Up all-black dress code at the BAFTAs tonight for an olive green Jenny Packham gown.

As a longtime fan of the iconic British label, it's not exactly a surprise that the royal activist would choose a bespoke version of the black floor-length gown from designer Sarah Burton's resort '16 collection for the special occasion.

The royal family are forbidden from making any form of political standing - protocol states that they should remain neutral at all times.

The Duchess of Cambridge strolled the carpet on the arm of hubby Prince William, who is the president of the BAFTAs, showing off her baby bump in the flowy, empire-waist silhouette which she styled with an emerald statement necklace and black clutch. Middleton, whose look was reminiscent of the inky-blue Jenny Packham gown she donned for the dinner in NY, finished her look with her Prada wavy cut-out suede heels and a Pretty Ballerinas clutch bag.

With just months to go until the birth of her third child, Kate was seen hitting the red carpet with husband William.

The royal also looked to Her Majesty, the Queen of England, for a helping hand and borrowed her diamond wedding bracelet, which Prince Philip designed for their nuptials back in 1947.

It is the first time the Duchess of Cambridge has worn a label other than Alexander McQueen for the annual BAFTA ceremony and tonight proved the flawless opportunity to showcase her blossoming baby bump.
