Good Afternoon Lovelies, 

I am finally home and ready to share with you all a lot of fun and interesting news! Starting with this incredible piece from BAFTA lovelies, who announced some huge things to their headquarters today! 

Amanda Berry OBE, the Chief Executive of BAFTA, welcomed The Duke of Cambridge and Xi Jinping, the President of the People’s Republic of China, to Lancaster House, today, as she introduced the pair to the great work in which the company is doing with China to help build cultural exchange. 

During their time at the building, the pair viewed a special short film about the two countries work, before Prince William gifted the president with a special original piece of artwork from the BAFTA archive. 

The visit also gave the company a chance to announce a number of events that would be taking place throughout November, including a talk with make-up artist Naomi Donne, a very excited event within China’s capital city, a fundraising dinner and lots more.  

Speaking about the meeting, Amanda Berry OBE, Chief Executive of BAFTA, said: “I was delighted with our involvement in today’s event and to be part of President Xi Jinping’s State Visit to the UK. The event showcased the range of creative excellence in the UK while recognising China’s significant contribution to the arts.

“BAFTA encourages creative and cultural exchange, and we’ve already begun this work by investing in new talent and laying foundations for future collaboration through initiatives and events in mainland China and Hong Kong.

“HRH The Duke of Cambridge’s gift presentation to President Xi Jinping, made on our behalf, is a symbol of our commitment to strengthening ties between our countries as we announce our first-ever event in Beijing and prepare to open applications for an expansion of our scholarship programme across mainland China, which began in Hong Kong.”

I am so happy that the president got the chance to see the amazing work in which the BAFTA team are doing!
