I also loved Stephen Fry's little joke about Helen Mirren bringing her grandson along. It made me laugh out loud. Singer Tinie Tempah also gave William a friendly handshake as he was about to go on stage.

In a message of support to all the young finalists, HRH The Duke of Cambridge, President of BAFTA, said: “I encourage you – our stars of tomorrow – to keep exploring your creativity and see where it takes you. A successful career in one of the fastest growing and most creative industries in this country is very much a possibility, regardless of your background or your gender. Judging by the potential you have already shown, your future, and the future of British games, is very bright indeed.”

The Duke also praised the “unrivalled access to the skills and expertise of top industry professionals” that the YGD initiative offers all year round.

Bafta’s Scholarship Programme

Quote:
A WIDNES student and budding film composer has been awarded a grant of nearly £10,000 for a scholarship to complete his studies

Christopher Schlechte-Bond, 22, is one of three beneficiaries to be named a Prince William Scholar – named after the Duke Of Cambridge – as part of the annual Bafta scholarship scheme.

The Duke Of Cambridge has congratulated the Widnes student and the other two recipients of the award – Hosea Ntaborwa and Shivani Shah – on their achievements.

He said: “As president of Bafta, I am proud of the opportunities for progression that the scheme offers.

“I would like to congratulate this year’s recipients Hosea, Christopher and Shivani – and all the new Bafta scholars – and wish them all the best in their future careers.”

The Prince William Scholars’ fees are funded by Warner Bros and the three will receive a short, funded work placement with a group of companies in the UK, a mentor from the film giant, and invitations to a series of industry masterclasses.

As William is the president of BAFTA I will post here -

Downton Abbey ‏@DowntonAbbey
A wonderful message from the president of @BAFTA, The Duke of Cambridge. Thank you, Sir! @KensingonRoyal #BAFTADownton

Quote:
ITV’s stupendously popular period drama is drawing to a close with one final Christmas special that will see the world say goodbye to the Crawley family – at least until the long-rumoured film comes to fruition.

Setting the bar high was a clip from Prince William, who said that the show is “one of Catherine’s and my favourite programmes”.

“When I first heard Downton Abbey was to receive the BAFTA Special Award, I was absolutely thrilled,” the Duke of Cambridge said.

“As the president of BAFTA, I’m delighted that we’re paying tribute to this extraordinary series that has flown the flag for British drama both at home and internationally.”

You Will Bafta do without me: Prince William snubs awards ceremony again

--------------------------------------------------------------
This same story gets recycled every year. Supposedly unnamed 'industry figures' are fuming William doesn't go to the red carpet awards show.

William does events with the charity arm of BAFTA throughout the year. William and Kate have done plenty of red carpets when required but its not really William's role with BAFTA.

It's a member of the Charities Forum and works closely with the Royal Foundation.
In fact it was BAFTA that filmed Kate's children's mental health week video. Kensington Palace tweeted it's thanks.

Here are links to BAFTA's charities which William is actively involved in

Spends his valuable time with the charity arm. Stays at home with the kids so as to not steal the limelight. JMO.

First thought - is he on shift? The press have been busy telling us that he is working hard in order to free up time for the India tour and HMQs birthday celebrations.

Second thought - just a load of old rubbish put out by disaffected press who have it down on the Cambridges at the present.

Third thought - regardless - recycle bin!

The BAFTA Awards recognises the commercial side of the industry. Its like the Oscars. William did attend in 2014 but that was to present Helen Mirren with a lifetime achievement award.

Like I stated, William works closely with BAFTA's charities but he doesn't walk the red carpet and hang with celebs just for the sake of it.

I will add, when he did attend in 2014, the DM had a fit about it

To be honest, it's an event that I would like to see William attend more often. Also, it wouldn't hurt to take his wife every now and then.

I agree Dman. As a Patron of BAFTA it is important he be visible, and not simply behind the scenes in their non-profit side. The film industry is an important business in the UK. People who criticize him for attending an event for one of his patronages, can live with it. It's not like he is chartering a jet and flying to Hollywood for the Oscars or something.

But if he is busy working a shift in prep for India that is understandable.

He has attended the Film Awards 3 times and appeared in a taped tribute for Lord Attenborough since 2010 when he was named President. The initial time was 2010 to announce he is taking over Presidency. Two other trip to present Helen Mirren and Vanessa Redgrave fellowships. Sidney Poitier is getting that award this year but can't be there due to poor health.

William did several Bafta things last year. They had events in China and in the UK during the Chinese state visit, young gamers showcase in Scotland, the Shawn the Sheep charity forum with Kate & Harry.

It's not like he has been to every FA cup finals or every Welsh Rugby match and totally ignored BAFTAS.

I suppose because rugby is not one major event, it is how many games in a season?? He certainly cant be expected to attend every game. He and Kate attended the final game in Wales against Australia in October. While BAFTA is a huge organization and does a lot of great work, they have one major event that is the jewel of their season. It is far more noticeable when he misses it then when he misses one of multiple rugby games.

this isn't just Rugby! This is the 6 Nations Championship - England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, France and Italy. it is BIG! Wales will want him to go to at least one game.

This is like the World Series - but it does include other countries!

The Duke of Cambridge Charities and Patronages

Baftas has multiple awards shows not just the film one. There is one for TV, children, gaming, one in Wales, one in Scotland. If William goes he isn't going to just sit in the audience. He needs to do something during the show. Plus how many people already complain on how William and Kate just do fun events not real work so hanging out with Hollywood A listers at an awards show every year wouldn't be a good image to project.

Not saying that he should attend every year, but I think he should go maybe once every two years and take his wife. One of those events where you take a date. It's a big deal to be President of the BAFTA's.

From 2010 to 2016 is 7 awards shows, he been to 3 and appeared on tape for 1. That's about once every 2 years.

After the early part of their marriage, the Cambridges going to black tie events together has dwindled off. William hasn't gone to the women hedge fund dinner when it's Kate's charity been honored. Kate hasn't gone to Tusk Awards recently. The last time I can think of them both going to a black tie charity thing together is the Natural History Museum Film premiere with Richard Attenborough.

Yeah, I think it's since the kids that they seem to split up for eveningengagements. Maybe the try to have a parent home tucking them in as often as possible or something like that. Makes sense :)

Right, I think they could both attend from time to time.
