Public displays of affection among the royals are rare to see. Usually when members of the Queen’s family are spotted out and about, they are in a working capacity, carrying out an official engagement. It would be a tad unprofessional if they walked around holding hands, or showered each other with kisses and hugs, but on occasion, they do relax and show they’re just like everybody else. Who doesn’t love a cheeky peck on the cheek or the comfort of interlinking hands? Let’s take a look at the royals and their loved-up moments, starting with…

The Queen and Prince Philip

Fans rarely see the Queen and her husband of 71 years show affection in public, so we love it when they do! The Duke of Edinburgh gallantly helped his wife down the steps of St Paul’s Cathedral in 2015 after the couple had attended a Service of Commemoration to mark the end of combat operations in Afghanistan.

The Duke of Cambridge did the same after the birth of his daughter Charlotte in May 2015. Here, he is pictured giving his wife Kate a helping hand as she manoeuvred the steps of the Lindo Wing, while William held onto baby Charlotte.

Harry and Meghan have been the subject of much discussion thanks to their very tactile appearances. But we love it when the couple hold hands in public – it makes them all the more relatable!

The future King has previously said his wife is “perhaps a bit more relaxed when it’s slightly more private or when you’re meeting people without being totally surrounded all the time by the dreaded camera.” But during engagements, Camilla has proved she’s a natural, and always looks like she’s having fun with her husband.

We just love how carefree and in love the Tindalls always look. Walking hand-in-hand, here they are pictured arriving at the Cheltenham Festival.

Despite the formality of the event at Buckingham Palace – Zara had just been awarded an MBE for services to equestrianism – the couple sweetly held hands as they were photographed by the press.
