Prince William and Kate Middleton Laugh at Brad Pitt's Awkward Joke about Prince Harry at BAFTAs 2020
Prince William and Kate Middleton gave a graceful laugh when Brad Pitt joked about Prince Harry while accepting his BAFTA Awards statue through a proxy.
Brad Pitt might have missed the BAFTA Awards in London due to family obligations, but it didn't stop him from cracking a risky joke through a proxy. The latter is his "Once Upon A Time in Hollywood" co-star, Margot Robbie.
The actress accepted the masked statue on behalf of Pitt for Best Supporting Actor. She then proceeded to read an already prepared acceptance speech.
The actor also appreciated the cast and crew of Quentin Tarantino's movie. The highlight of the speech came at the end when Robbie said,
"And [Pitt] said that he is going to name this Harry because he is really excited about bringing it back to the [United] States with him."

Prince William and Middleton arrived at Albert Hall, the venue of the BAFTA Award together. The Duchess looked stunning in a flowing gold and white dress by Alexander McQueen.
The Royal had worn the dress at a State function in Malaysia in 2012. She recycled it to honor the BAFTAs sustainable fashion choices as part of this year's theme.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the Badshahi Mosque, the most iconic Islamic site in Lahore, set in the heart of the Walled City. The Duke and Duchess toured the mosque and courtyard, before joining a discussion with faith leaders to learn how they are promoting interfaith harmony within their communities. The couple’s visit to Badshahi sees them follow in the footsteps of The Duke’s father, The Prince of Wales @ClarenceHouse, who visited the Mosque with The Duchess of Cornwall during a tour of Pakistan in 2006, and his grandmother Her Majesty The Queen @TheRoyalFamily, who visited in 1961. 📷 PA / Kensington Palace #RoyalVisitPakistan #pakistan
The dress got paired with earrings and necklace from Van Cleef and Arpels; they sell for $15 000. The mom-of-three also had on a gold pair of Jimmy Choo heels.
