Yes, I watched the BAFTA's. Kudos to him for becoming the new President of the BAFTA's.
I agree he was very handsome in his tuxedo.
I think overall he did a good job. I noticed he chose to read from his card rather than the teleprompter. Perhaps it was too difficult to see. Even Mickey Rourke commented that it was too far away and had a hard time reading it.

Vanessa is a classy lady! She's one of my favourite actresses too.

I think William is still quite nervous speaking in public, and in time will learn to speak extempore, just as his father usually does.

It was funny when he said it was daunting.
He did a good job.

It's certainly understandable for him to be nervous. It's his first time at such a prestegious event as this and in front of all these celebrities not to mention the millions of viewers watching. Plus he doesn't have much experience in public speaking to begin with. All things considered he seemed pretty calm and did a very good job. I agree with you that in time he will get better.

Article from the event.

He sure is winning them over from all quarters now, that's for sure. I wish HRH William of Wales every success in the new job in regards to the Academy as well.

This is true. Even many celebrities still get nervous at these things and flub up their words. I think he did a fantastic job! And it was nice to have a touch of Royalty at the ceremony.
A big congratulations to William for becoming the new President of the British Film Academy!
Does this mean he will attend the Baftas every year? Did Sir Attenborough always attend them? I've never really paid any attention to the Baftas before.

That's probably so. BTW thanks for letting me know about the BBC channel. I didn't even know we had a cable channel set aside for British programming.

I'm not sure if he will or not, but it would be nice if he did! I suppose it will depend on his schedule.

It's amusing when William was walking the red carpet at the Baftas how people were trying to get his autograph as if he were a celebrity. It's understandable that he declined.

@nakitamarie My understanding is William and Kate won't be at the Baftas. They will have some more public duties together but not that soon.

Impossible for William to not be at the Baftas. He is the president and the ceremony is on sunday night and the date is staged for months so william did arrange his schedule around this date for sure. No way he can say it does go well with his military duties.

I hope Richard is wrong on this one but he was the one who first confirmed William and Kate attending the Christmas show together.

It's not impossible, he can say he doesn't want to go if he can't make it.
He is the president, but it's not like he'll have a lot to do. Maybe give out an award.
If he's attending it should be in the diary, he does have his own section.

He doesn't decide when he is on duty at the base. He might put in a request for days to be rostered in certain ways but first and foremost they have to ensure that enough personel are on duty and that those that have been on duty for a certain period of time are also getting the right amount of rest.

I said it's impossible for William not to be at the BAFTA because the date of the show is scheduled far in advance and his own schedule probabley take into consideration his duties and his map is adjust well in advance when his has to perform his duties, what's the point to accept to take the role of president of the BAFTA if it's to not be present at the ceremony? It will be a non sense

Last year it was not in his diary, I learned he was named president of the bafta the day before the show on the BBC website and after it was mentioned on the website of the academy of the cinema. The day of the ceremony there was no mention. It's pretty normal, it's exactly the same that the christmas show he went with Kate. No mention of it on the website of the prince of wales in william's section. It has been indicated after the show with photos of william and kate.

On a related point, I am surprised we haven't had any further published pics from the Testino session. There must be more on the way surely?
But after the wedding we will hear about them for all the time

As President of BAFTA William will not be obliged to attend every BAFTA event. This is just one of the organisations he supports, so he will need to organise his diary to balance all his commitments. It will certainly not be a "non sense" if he cannot attend the awards.
