Kensington Palace has confirmed that Prince William and Duchess Catherine will once again attend the British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards -- the British equivalent of the Oscars.
Kate, 36, who is currently expecting her third little prince or princess in April, made her debut on the red carpet last year in a custom-made, floor-length gown from British designer Alexander Queen. She braved arctic temperatures with the off-the-shoulder design to show-off green and violet embroidery and satin ribbon detailing.
Catherine braved the cold at last year's BAFTAs with an off-the-shoulder gown embellished with green and violet flowers, and satin ribbon detailing.
She certainly stole the show!
Prince William, who has served as president of BAFTA since 2010, has previously donned a tux to attend the event on a handful of occasions. This time around, the 35-year-old royal will also present the Fellowship award -- the ceremony's highest accolade -- to actor Sir Ridley Scott.
This year's event is set to take place on Sunday 18 February at the Royal Albert Hall. It will be hosted by Absolutely Fabulous star Joanna Lumley.
Before their swanky appearance, the duo are expected to spend some quality time with their young children -- Prince George, four, and Princess Charlotte, two.
The doting parents have cleared their schedules to coincide with the youngsters' half-term break. George, who attends Thomas's Battersea school, is breaking up this week as is Charlotte, who is a pupil at Willcocks Nursery School.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have previously used their winter break to take their little ones skiing.
In March 2016, the young family spent a few days in the French Alps for the children's first ski holiday and released a series of family portraits following the getaway.
The snaps, which featured George, who was two, and Charlotte, who was ten-months-old, showed the Cambridges at their most intimate.
"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to share new photographs of their family," a Kensington Palace spokesperson said at the time. "The images show Their Royal Highnesses enjoying a short skiing holiday with their children in the French Alps.
"This was their first holiday as a family of four and the first time either of the children had played in the snow. It was very special and fun short holiday for the family.
"The Duke and Duchess hope people enjoy the photos."

Our hearts!
The snaps showed a more playful side to the beloved royal couple.
The quick getaway was spent in the French Alps.
We have no doubt William and Kate will enjoy their break from royal duties, having recently returned home from a whistle-stop tour of Scandinavia.
The official royal tour saw the couple take on a series of routine activities -- walkabouts, gallery visits and dignitary hand-shaking -- as well as a series of glittering events, rubbing shoulders with the likes of stars Stellan Skarsgård and Oscar-winning actress Alicia Vikander.
