Royal fans can’t get over a video of Kate Middleton and Prince William at the BAFTAs last night that has gone viral.

Returning to the award ceremony for the first time in three years, the Prince and Princess of Wales walked the red carpet alongside the stars.

But as the two walked off the red carpet, Kate took the opportunity to cheekily slap her husband on the bottom.

The video was captured by Vogue and shows the pair sharing a giggle as they made their way into the venue but not before Kate took the time to show some affection, by patting William’s derriere for all cameras to see.

Posting the clip of the royal booty slap, Vogue wrote on Instagram: “Princess Kate gave Prince William a love tap as they arrived to the 2023 #BAFTAs, proving that royals really are just like us— a regular husband and wife that sometimes like to cop a feel.”

Upon their return to the BAFTAs and prior to the tushie pat, Kate dazzled the red carpet in a dress a lot of people recognised.

Kate rewore an old BAFTA favourite on the carpet, donning a Grecian-style gown by Alexander McQueen.

Kate first wore the gown to the BAFTAs in 2019, only this time it came with some slight altercations.

The floral detail on the shoulder was swapped for a train-style material, adding long black gloves and some Zara earrings to the look.
