At the start of the ceremony, Prince William was announced as the new president of BAFTA; 50 years after his grandfather Prince Philip had the same role. William, 27, succeeds legendary director Lord Richard Attenborough, 86, and it is the first time the future king has taken part in such an awards ceremony. The Prince’s first official duty took place on February 21 when he presented actress Vanessa Redgrave with the Academy fellowship, the highest accolade the organization can award.
