• The BAFTAs took place on Sunday
  • Prince William and Duchess Kate did not attend the event
  • This is why they didn't go

The British Academy Film Awards were held at the Royal Albert Hall in London on March 13, 2022. Prince William (39) and Duchess Kate (40) usually appear at this prestigious event. This year, however, the royal couple canceled their appearance at the annual award ceremony on short notice.

This is why Prince William and Duchess Kate missed out on the BAFTAs

According to Town and Country, William reportedly canceled attendance: "due to diary constraints he is not able to attend in person this year." While it's unclear exactly what that means, it sounds like a scheduling conflict led to the royal couple missing out on the event.

Typically, William and Kate attend the BAFTAs together, and William traditionally gives a speech to the audience at the end of the show. With this year's cancellation, however, the royal couple has now missed for the second year in a row for an unexpected reason.
