Meghan wasn't on the scene when William got the BAFTA's so I just wonder if he's the best fit for it now.



Maybe when Charles succeeds there might be opportunity for a bit of re-shuffling, indeed I would think they would have to be given Charles will be stepping up and everyone else will have to share out or review what will happen to all the patronages across the board.



Have royals ever changed patronages 'mid stream' (excluding generational/retirement type handovers like the Queen giving the tennis to Catherine, I mean) amongst themselves?


Would it be seen as an insult to the patronage or would they just be grateful they have any royal support since it's in such demand?
I would be surprised to see if Meghan is handed over the BAFTA patronage. William has been involved since 2010, after taking over from Anne, who took over from the DoE. I would expect to see William retain this patronage in the long term.

Meghan has been handed over the NT patronage. There are also a number of other, lower profile theatre and acting related patronages that various members of the BRF have. If there are any of the older generation that come up, I am sure Meghan will be considered for them.

It's always been interesting to me to see who gets what. I often wonder if they have some personal interest and it's primarily based on that, obviously with mental health, that's something all the 'fab four' are pursuing. I would think they also consider the time commitment required, and if the events clash with anything they already do.


It makes me curious what interests and 'private' hobbies the royal have that we don't know about. Things they might be quiet expert on privately and so that makes them better options for X patronage.

William took over from Lord Attenborough, not his Aunt. Unless you mean purely in the royal sense as Lord Attenborough wasn't an HRH.

YOu are right, I had not appreciated Lord Attenborough's involvement.

Kate's dress is lovely. Some of the actresses' dress choices are ... er, "interesting"!

Their reaction to Brad Pitt's gag was priceless

Sorry to be grumpy, but I thought that was very rude of Brad Pitt, especially as he wasn't even there to deliver the "jokes" in person. William and Kate handled it very well, but he was trying to provoke a reaction and there was no need for it. Why can't people just accept awards, say thank you very much, and have done, instead of making awkward jokes or political statements?!

It was rude, pointless, and gutless, since he didn't even have the courage to deliver it himself, but it also doesn't reflect well on the person who chose to read the "joke."
