After a long absence, Prince William and Kate Middleton returned to the BAFTA red carpet on February 19, 2023.

Middleton stunned in her 2019 white Alexander McQueen one-shouldered gown.

Middleton accessorized $27 Zara earrings and black opera gloves.

She also carried a small black clutch and wore gold pumps to complete the look.

Middleton's last BAFTA costume was a white-and-gold Alexander McQueen gown from her 2012 Malaysia vacation.

The couple skipped last year's BAFTA event due to scheduling conflicts.

After Prince Philip's death, Prince William cancelled his 2021 virtual event speech.

Middleton's appearance at the 2023 BAFTA event was her first since 2020.

Prince William serves as the president of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.
