Prince William and Kate Middleton shared several sweet yet rare public displays of affection last week during a royal charity polo match in Windsor, England.
The Duke of Cambridge gave his wife a kiss on the cheek at the end of the Wednesday match and he was also seen with his arm around the duchess’ back and with their cocker spaniel puppy Orla in tow!
The duke’s team even earned a trophy at Out-Sourcing Inc. Royal Charity Polo Cup at Guards Polo Club, which raised money for several charities important to the couple.
Royal expert Myka Meier previously told People magazine there are no specific etiquette rules for the duke and duchess regarding PDA.
Still, the couple tend to err on the side of propriety while out in public or conducting their royal duties.
She said senior royals would use their use judgment as far as public affection.
“The royals often adjust PDA to mirror the formality of the event they are attending. At a somber or more formal event, we are less likely to see PDA than at a casual event where it would be deemed more fitting,” she said.
The couple were also spotted taking in the quarter-finals at Wimbledon together on Tuesday and on Saturday Kate was seen watching the women’s finals just a few rows in front of “Top Gun: Maverick” star Tom Cruise in the Royal Box.
In one photo Cruise appeared to notice the duchess in her stunning yellow Roksanda dress while she remained focused on the match.
Kate is a patron of the All England Lawn Tennis Club as well as an enthusiastic amateur player herself and presented the trophy to winner Elena Rybakina.
Rybakina is the first player from Kazakhstan to win a grand slam singles title at the tournament.
Kate and William were last spotted with the movie star, who just celebrated his 60th birthday on Sunday, the “Top Gun: Maverick” premiere in London on May 19.
Fans called Cruise a “gentleman” at the premiere when he was seen giving the stiletto-clad royal his hand to help her up some stairs on the red carpet.
“Tom is so lovely. Always the gentleman,” one Twitter user wrote at the time.
At the premiere, Cruise told reporters he and William “have a lot in common. We both love England and we’re both aviators, we both love flying.”
The duke was famously a search and rescue pilot for the Royal Air Force during his military career.ORDER A COPY OF ROB’S NEW BEST SELLING BOOK!
