Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to hold hands while leaving Westminster Hall on Wednesday has divided royal fans.
While the couple arrived separately for Queen Elizabeth II’s procession – with Markle riding in a car and Harry walking beside brother Prince William – they stood side by side during the service.
On their walk out, the pair were the only duo holding hands, unlike King Charles III, Queen Consort Camilla, William and Kate Middleton.
Many Twitter users celebrated the public display of affection as Harry, 37, mourned his late grandmother.
“Meghan & harry have such a special & amazing bond that no one can ever take away from them,” one person gushed.
Another called the former actress, 41, a “supportive wife” amid her husband’s grief.
“Meghan and Harry love each other,” a third added. “There is no reason why they should ever have to hide it!”
Notably, royal family members are strongly discouraged from showing PDA, leading many social media users to find fault with the hand-holding “breach.”ORDER A COPY OF ROB’S NEW BEST SELLING BOOK!
