There’s a lot of love between the Cambridges. Prince William and Kate Middleton held hands in a rare public display of affection at Princess Eugenie’s wedding on Friday, October 12.

The couple, without their youngest child Prince Louis, was escorted into St. George’s Chapel after arriving to the venue with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Once they were seated inside the chapel, Prince William assumed his spot beside Middleton, who was directly beside Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Middleton then casually held hands with Prince William as he read through the program. The Duke of Cambridge eventually and gently released his hand to page through the remainder of the program, but Middleton rested her hand on her husband’s lap as she continued her conversation with Prince Harry.

The moment was a delightful one for viewers who rarely see the couple engage in any PDA.

The Cambridges married in April 2011 and are now parents to three kids. Their two oldest children, Prince George, 5, and Princess Charlotte, 3, served as a page boy and a junior bridesmaid in the wedding on Friday.
