KNIGHTHOOD: Vanessa Redgrave Recieves Bafta Award From Prince William


KNIGHTHOOD: Vanessa Redgrave Recieves Bafta Award From Prince William
by Darius Kadivar

Prince William certainly charmed the star-studded crowd as he made his first ever appearance at the British Academy Film Awards last night. The 27-year-old even managed to win over avowed republican Vanessa Redgrave as he presented her with a British Academy fellowship. The acclaimed actress bowed down on bended knee as she greeted the young royal on stage, and was positively beaming as she kissed him on the cheek and he helped her back to her feet.
