We have to admit that ever since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry got married, we have noticed that Kate Middleton and Prince William have started to feel more comfortable and relaxed with each other in public. Somebody language experts think that the younger couple’s constant PDA has seriously influenced the older one.
Just over the weekend when we got to see all four of them together once again, we noticed Will totally stepped away from his usual behavior to put his hand on Kate’s back. Body language expert Judi James told the Daily Mail: “It’s unusual to see William taking the lead in terms of public touch rituals with Kate but on Remembrance Sunday he performed this back-touch ritual, even playing his thumb out to signal a rather protective form of affection.”
James suggests that showing public affection is something that Meghan started doing and now Kate and William are slowing starting to feel more comfortable following. Judi added: “Now that Meghan has joined The Firm, her own determinedly tactile behavior with Harry does seem to have had a profound ‘echo’ effect on William and Kate’s rituals.”
We did some digging, though, and did find some pretty sweet moments Kate and William had way before Harry met Meghan. Scroll down to see how Kate and William’s PDAs compare to Meghan and Harry’s!
