Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Double Hand Hold Is the Sweetest Video From the Royal Tour

The world has now been treated to three full days of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry as the expectant couple continues their 16-day official tour through Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand, and there’s already been more than enough tender moments for the affectionate pair.

The latest unintended PDA to take place, however, went down during an official engagement in Melbourne on Thursday, October 18. The couple made their way to an exhibit as they stopped by to learn more about a training program dedicated to indigenous youth. As they greeted their hosts and hundreds of screaming fans on the streets, the couple grasped hands—a common occurrence from the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex.

There was, however, a quietly affectionate gesture from Harry’s end. The prince quietly took his one open arm and pulled it behind his back, seamlessly then placing both hands on his wife.

A new hand-holding style is born. I call it super PDA – I know you’re here, I love you. I’m into you baby. When your man loves to touch your hand with full skin-to-skin contact, it simply means he loves you a lot and can’t do without you. Lol Harry, please keep showing the world how a man should properly treat and love his woman. Can’t get enough of these two. .. .. . Tag your friends to see this. .. . . .. … ..

This hasn’t been the only headline-generating PDA example between the high-profile pair on their joint tour. During a downpour of heavy rain in Dubbo, Australia, on Wednesday, Harry gallantly handed his umbrella to his wife before heading up to the stage to deliver a speech.

Markle, who’s currently expecting the her first child with the prince, then followed her husband up the stage with the same umbrella and held the piece over his head as he spoke.
