If you've been paying close attention, you might have noticed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have a special double hand hold they do from time to time. In some pictures, you can see Meghan holding her (literal) prince's hand with both of her hands. And, apparently, Harry and Meghan's double hand hold says a lot about their relationship, according to a body language expert.
"It looks like when they're in more private moments, she'll do the double hand hold," says Traci Brown, body language expert and author of Persuasion Point. "She's reaching more into his space, looking for a deeper connection."
For those of you who aren't royal etiquette buffs, the fact that the two even choose to hold hands at all is pretty surprising in and of itself. You see, while there's no mandated law written against it, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip have an unwritten "no PDA" rule that their children and grandchildren have historically chosen to follow. "The Queen rarely holds hands with her husband in public and this seems to have set an unwritten precedent for the other royals," body language expert Robin Kermode explained to the Daily Mail. So, no. There's no real rule against holding hands but regularly interlocking fingers with your royal bae is definitely out of the norm.
But Meghan and Harry just can't seem to keep their perfectly manicured fingertips away from each other! Even when the two aren't doing their signature double-hand-hold, they're seen doing a regular single-hand-hold. I had Brown analyze pictures of them doing both to get a better feel for what their connection is really like.
