Kate Middleton, 38, joined her husband Prince William, 37, at the BAFTAs on Sunday night in London. The Duchess of Cambridge re-wore a striking white and gold dress, which was last seen during the royal tour of Malaysia in 2012.
For the night, Kate chose to wear the Alexander McQueen gown with a pair of sparkling gold Jimmy Choo high-heels and accessorised with a gorgeous sparkly clutch bag, and an array of dangling jewellery.
Kate chose a dress she already owned in keeping with the request of the BAFTA hosts, who asked guests to "dress sustainably".
But many experts believe that there is more behind the choice of her dress, and one expert, in particular, speculates that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, was trying to convey another message with her dress.
Lara Asprey, VIP matchmaker, a royal watcher and social commentator, believes there was “something else going on” with Kate’s dress choice.

She exclusively shared her thoughts with Express.co.uk and said: “I don't think it's any coincidence that Kate chose last night to upcycle an old dress from a few years ago.
“I mean, on the one hand, she was adhering to BAFTAs new sustainable dress code and setting an example to women everywhere.
“I mean, in this day and age why shouldn't we feel we can wear dresses more than once?
“It's certainly going to help our planet and indeed our wallets - and who better to voice this movement than someone in Kate's position,” she added.DON'T MISS
“However, on the other hand, you can't help but feel there's something else going on here,” Lara said.
“In a time where there is a certain feeling of 'disposability' within certain members of Royal Family, i.e if you don't like something you change it if you try something on and it doesn't fit you wave it goodbye, and where change must surely be change for the better (without knowing it will be) - it does feel as though intertwined with the ethical message is a moral one.
