Prince William On The Lack of Diversity at the BAFTAs: 'This Cannot Be Right In This Day & Age'

Prince William is speaking up about the lack of diversity at the 2020 EE British Academy Film Awards.

During his speech at the event, where he presented this year’s BAFTA Fellowship to Star Wars producer Kathleen Kennedy, commented on the lack of actors of color and women who were passed over for nominations.

“We find ourselves talking again about the need to do more to address diversity in the sector. That cannot be right in this day and age. I know Pippa [Harris] and Amanda [Berry] share that frustration,” he shared on stage. “BAFTA take this issue seriously, and following this year’s nominations have launched a full review…to ensure the opportunities are available to everyone.”

The Duke of Cambridge also serves as the BAFTA president.

Joaquin Phoenix, who won for Best Actor, also criticized the lack of diversity.
