Duchess of Cambridge steps into the cockpit at RAF Wittering

Absolutely gorgeous! That's the only way to describe Kate Middleton at the BAFTA Awards over the weekend.

Among the focal points, Kat Middleton was shining with her unusual dress. Prince William and his wife made an appearance at the British version of the Academy Awards on Sunday, and the mom of two definitely turned heads.

Seeing as the family intend to settle for the long term at Kensington Palace, it has been announced that new security measures will be put in place to ensure the royal family's safety. The couple supports the British Academy Film Awards' charity events and programs - among which are Young Game Designers and British Academy Film Awards' Kids events, and cross-cultural collaborations. Kate entered the red carpet in her stunningly charming Alexander McQueen off-the-shoulder gown.

And the duchess didn't fall short on accessorising for her daytime engagement, adding a pair of £2,200 gold and diamond leaf earrings by Kiki McDonagh to give the outfit some flight.

According to reports, as William and Kate were confirmed to be in attendance before the show aired live on BBC1 on February 11, BAFTA producers actually reminded the stars - including Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant - that they were not to asked the Duke and Duchess for a selfie.

Also, the tiles on the floor are inspired by those of Westminster Abbey, where William and Kate were married in 2011.

The duke and duchess have previously attended a few BAFTA events in the past. Prince William - who has served as president of the BAFTA association since 2010 - presented the BAFTA Fellowship, a lifetime achievement award, to Mel Brooks.
