When was the last time we saw Prince William and Kate Middleton share some PDA? Actually, we’ve been so focused on what’s happening with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry that we somehow deviated our attention to another royal couple. But really, when did the last two kiss in public? Three kids after, have their relationship gone sour?

Maybe not. In a meeting with Pakistani Imam Aga Khan, Prince William and Kate MIddleton share some rare PDA, hallelujah. Not that we doubted whether they are still close or whatnot, but having a lot of kids can certainly does that to a couple. 

Anyway, they did not really kiss here but they did something that still shocked many. During the engagement with Khan, ahead of their upcoming tour of Pakistan, The Mirror was able to capture a cute footage of Kate sweetly touching her husband’s arm.

The said event was geared towards "promoting understanding about Muslim cultures and connecting the public to global development issues," according to The Mirror

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, on the other hand, love a bit of PDA. They have never shied away from holding hands, stroking each others' backs and even kissing in public since they got married. Maybe because theirs is still a young marriage and they only have one child. 

Or, this has nothing to do with the length of marriage but their desire to go against etiquette. Everyone knows that when the two royal couples are going to be compared, Prince William and Kate Middleton will certainly win at adhering to protocol while Markle and Harry will won at being rebels.

According to royal etiquette expert Myka Meier, PDA is usually avoided by royals so that they can maintain an air of professionalism. Speaking to People Magazine, Meier said "the couple are likely to show very little PDA, if any, to remain professional during their designated roles."
