Prince William has dropped out of this weekend’s BAFTA Awards, following the death of his grandfather, Prince Philip.
BAFTA said in a statement: “In light of The Duke of Edinburgh’s passing, The Duke of Cambridge will no longer be part of BAFTA programming this weekend. Our thoughts are with the Royal Family, to whom we offer our deepest sympathy at this time.”
