  • BAFTA 2019: Kate Middleton, Vision In White, Sparkles In Princess Diana's Earrings

Kate, 37, channelled Hollywood glamour in a bespoke white one-shoulder gown by designer favourite Alexander McQueen, with tulle flowers embroidered on one shoulder.

"I thought that the earrings looked stunning, it was a very fairy tale princess look", British jeweler and pearl specialist Claudia Bradby tells PEOPLE, adding: "The dress gave the earrings space to be attractive on their own and it was all very feminine".

Like numerous jewels Kate has inherited from her mother-in-law, she chose to modernize the original design, swapping the pearls worn by Diana (with different diamond detailing) for a smaller more contemporary pearl.

Sarah Ferguson has weighed in on the so-called "feud" between Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, saying it's akin to how she and the late Princess Diana were viewed as "rivals".

Prince William wore a traditional black tuxedo but strayed from tradition slightly with a pair of black velvet loafers.

Kate laughed and said: "It's so quiet", while husband William quipped: "Let's sit quickly".

William has been President of the Academy since 2010 and presented the Fellowship award to Martin Scorsese's longstanding editor, Thelma Schoonmaker.

The royal couple arrived on the red carpet after the rest of the guests and jokingly apologised for keeping everyone waiting as they took their seats inside.

The Favourite won best British film on the night, while Rachel Weisz was named best supporting actress for the movie.

The royal couple sat in the front row for the star-studded awards ceremony and greeted some of the night's winners, including best actress victor Olivia Coleman, who is also an Oscar nominee for her portrayal of Queen Anne in The Favourite.
