This Is Why Prince William and Kate Middleton Never Hold Hands In Public

Despite never witnessing any PDA, somehow this royal couple has given most women #RelationshipGoals. We sense mutual respect, adoration and they have those the two little royal munchkins. People interviewed Myka Meier, a royal etiquette expert and founder and director Beaumont Etiquette. She said, “There is no actual etiquette or royal protocol that says the couple must refrain from PDA.”

“The likely reasoning is more that while traveling on a tour such as the India trip, technically the couple are working representatives of British Monarchy,” she continues. “The couple are likely to show very little PDA, if any, to remain professional during their designated roles abroad.”

Royals writer Judy Wage tells People, “Going to somewhere like the mausoleum is very much an official, straight-laced kind of event and you wouldn’t hold hands there if they’re there on an official visit.

“But I noticed they did let their hair down at the sporty occasions on the tour, and there was a great deal of fun, and he kept putting his arms around her,” she says. “Different types of occasions call for different types of behavior.”

They’re always on the job – it’s a matter of decorum.
