Prince William Attends 2024 BAFTA Film Awards Solo Amid Kate Middleton's Recovery

2024 BAFTA Film Awards: Best Red Carpet Fashion!

Prince William is hitting the red carpet without his princess. 

The Prince of Wales stepped out solo at the 2024 BAFTA Film Awards at London's Southbank Centre on Feb. 18 to fulfill his royal duties alone, while his wife Kate Middleton continues recovering from her recent abdominal surgery.

For the glamorous outing, William chose to wear a navy velvet tux as he walked the red carpet before heading into the event, which honors the year's best movies. (Oppenheimer leads the pack with 13 nominations this year, followed by the Emma Stone-led Poor Things with 11 nods.) Inside the venue, he was spotted chatting with Cate Blanchett
