Prince William and Kate caught sneaking rare PDA in the pews at Eugenie’s chic wedding
It is not common to see royal couples making any type of public display of affection, but Prince William and Kate Middleton seem to have taken that next step.
During Princess Eugenie's wedding, which took place on Friday, October 12, 2018, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were caught holding hands.
The royals often prefer not to show affection for one another at public events, but they opened an exception this time, as it can be seen in this photo.

According to Myka Meier, a royal etiquette expert, founder and director of Beaumont Etiquette, seeing the couple holding hands in public is a very rare sight.
THEY MUST BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS
But, unlike what people might believe, there is no specific rule that forbids public displays of affection, rather a conduct that every member of the Royal Family must follow.
It is up to each one of them to make an assessment of the situation and determine whether it is appropriate or not to do certain gestures, including holding hands.
As previously mentioned, William and Kate are always very professional when it comes to their royal outings and duties; although they refrain from touching one another, they often show their appreciation for their partner through smiles and sweet looks.
On the other hand, William's father and Queen Elizabeth's son, Prince Charles, can usually be spotted holding hands with Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, with whom he married back in 2005.
HARRY AND MEGHAN'S BOND
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have also been seen holding hands in the past, especially at Royal Ascot, on June 20, 2018. That day, the Prince didn't seem keen on letting his wife's hand go.
Even though he had to meet and greet quite a lot of people, the two were inseparable and their hands barely stopped touching throughout the day.
