BAFTA commemorates work of late royal Prince Philip

The BAFTAs has paid tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh following his death on Friday.

Prince Philip, who died at Windsor Castle at the age of 99, was the first president for BAFTA, and held the role from 1959 to 1965.

Hosts Dermot O’Leary and Edith Bowman honoured the late Prince’s work for BAFTA in their opening monologue for the ceremony, which is being held at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

Prince William had been scheduled to make an appearance at this year’s BAFTAs on Saturday 10 April for a pre-recorded conversation with acclaimed costume designer Jenny Beavan and make-up and hair designer Sharon Martin.
