You can tell a lot about how people feel about each other just in the way that they look at one another. Do their eyes always seem to meet? And when they do, do they linger? Sometimes a simple look can be more revealing than any PDA, which is why despite the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge intentionally choosing to not be overly affectionate in public, you can still see their love for one another. While that personal policy may keep them from piling on the PDA, it can't stop Prince William and Kate Middleton gazing into each other’s eyes. Which they do a lot. But then when you've got their kind of love and connection, it's pretty hard to look away.
As Myka Meier, a royal etiquette expert and the founder and director of Beaumont Etiquette explained to People, there is no official rule preventing them from being affectionate in public — they just chose not to. "The likely reasoning is more that while traveling on a tour such as the India trip, technically the couple are working representatives of the British monarchy,” she said, specifically mentioning a trip the couple took to the Taj Mahal in 2016. “The couple are likely to show very little PDA, if any, to remain professional during their designated roles abroad." This makes sense, but it also means we have to look closely to catch those small but meaningful moments. It's worth the effort, because, as you can see, these two are so sweet together that you can't help but swoon!
