Prince William to Attend BAFTA’s Movie Awards
The Duke of Cambridge will walk the red carpet and present Helen Mirren with her BAFTA Fellowship plaudit during the ceremony.
This year’s British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) will have the Royal seal of approval at its film awards after announcing Prince William will attend this year’s EE British Academy Film Awards Feb. 16.
Wearing his crown as president of the Academy, the new father and future king is scheduled to walk the red carpet at London’s Royal Opera House, watch the awards ceremony and present Helen Mirren with the Academy Fellowship, the highest accolade bestowed by the British Academy.
Mirren won an Oscar for her portrayal of William’s grandmother in Stephen Frears’ The Queen.
BAFTA chief executive Amanda Berry said: “We are delighted to welcome our president back to the EE British Academy Film Awards. The Duke [of Cambridge] loves film and he is incredibly supportive of the work BAFTA does.”
Stephen Fry returns as host for the ceremony, which will be broadcast exclusively on BBC One in the U.K. and in all major territories around the world.
