The pregnant duchess was criticized on Sunday for walking the red carpet in a flowy green gown at the British Academy Film Awards after attendees were encouraged to wear all black in support of the Time’s Up movement.
Middleton, who is expecting her third child with Prince William, had a black velvet ribbon underneath her bust.
“Disappointed in #KateMiddleton #DuchessofCambridge not wearing black to the #EEBAFTAs It’s not a political thing. Its a woman thing! #TimesUp #StandTogether,” one woman tweeted.
Another person wrote, “I know the Royals aren’t supposed to get involved with ‘protests’ or anything but would it really have been THAT bad for Kate Middleton to wear black???”.
“Kate Middleton shuns #timesup black dress code, clearly not a woman’s woman!” read another tweet.
Actress Allison Janney also addressed the green dress controversy, saying she “Would never judge anyone’s choice.”
