Since Meghan & Harry got engaged the lovebirds aren’t shy to hold hands while out and about in public. But wait, did you notice that Williams and Kate have not seen holding hands in public ever? But there’s a reason why the brothers have such a different attitude with their partner and it’s not all down to Royal protocol.
Etiquette expert Myka Meier told People Magazine that Harry and Meghan’s back-rubbing and hand-holding may be related to how recently they got engaged.
She said: “While Prince Harry and Meghan holding hands are a typical for royal engagements, it is a seemingly welcomed gesture to show unity and celebration of their engagement period. There is no protocol that says they can’t show affection on official engagements, and this gesture makes them relocatable and lovable to the public.”
But Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge have always had a less physical public affection.
