Prince Williams says he will name the BAFTA awards ‘Harry’ (Photos)

Prince William and Kate Middleton attended the BAFTA awards last night and they had an awkward moment where Margot Robbie made a joke about Prince Harry while accepting Brad Pitt’s award.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were left laughing awkwardly after Margot Robbie made a joke about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s exit from the roles as senior royals during a BAFTA acceptance speech on behalf of Brad Pitt.

At the 73rd annual EE British Academy Film Awards at the Royal Albert Hall, Brad Pitt, 56, was named best Supporting Actor for his role in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

With the actor absent from the ceremony in London, his co-star Robbie read out a speech on his behalf.

She said: “He says he is going to name this (the award plaque) Harry because he is really excited about bringing it back to the States with him. His words not mine.”

At this point, Prince William, 37, and Kate Middleton, 38, gave an awkward laugh.

Later, Prince William spoke passionately about the importance of diversity in films before handing out the Fellowship award to Star Wars producer Kathleen Kennedy.
