With all the hype surrounding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle since their royal wedding in May, Prince William and Kate Middleton have kept a low profile — especially since the birth of their third child, Prince Louis, in April. But on Oct. 9, they stepped out together for the first time since Kate started maternity leave from royal engagements. And thank god, because we missed them! According to body language experts, Prince William and Kate Middleton's body language at the Global Mental Health Summit shows they're still the same beautiful couple we've come to love and admire over the years.
Before we dive in, a little background on their relationship: Prince William and Kate Middleton met in 2001, when they began college at the University of St Andrews in Scotland. They were both art history majors, so they had a lot of the same classes and quickly became friends. When Kate and William moved in with some of those friends, their relationship started to change. They dated for a few years but took a break from their relationship in 2007. They rekindled their love after a few months apart and have been happily together ever since. They got engaged in 2010, married in 2011, and welcomed Prince George in 2013. Princess Charlotte was born in 2015, and later, Prince Louis in April 2018. Now that little Louis is five months old, Kate is back to making royal appearances both on her own and alongside Will. Here's what their recent body language at the Global Mental Health Summit tells us about the state of their relationship.
