LONDON - Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton sparked controversy on social media over her choice of dress for the British Academy Film Awards.

The dress code for the event was all black, as a symbol for the ‘Time’s Up’ movement against gender inequality and sexual harassment. But when Kate hit the red carpet with husband Prince William, the seven-month pregnant royal was wearing a green dress with a black sash.

Some speculate Kate may have chosen to wear a different color because the royal family is usually expected to avoid taking political positions in public, and that the black sash may have been a nod to the movement.
