During a recent trip to the Basildon Sporting Village in Essex, the Duchess of Cambridge shared a hug with Janet Emery and explained why.

About six months back, the duchess also wrote an open letter to support Children's Hospice Week and talked about the importance of family.

"Spending quality time together is such an important aspect of family life, and for me, as a mother, it is the simple family moments like playing outside together that I cherish."

Even though Kate is a member of the Royal family – married to a future King, no less – she has been praised for her "normal mum" approach when it comes to George and Charlotte.

The two tots are often spotted in hand-me-down clothes, and Kate was even photographed using the hem of her dress to wipe her children's faces.

That said, Kate still always rigidly followed protocols when it came to things like public appearances and meet-and-greets with citizens.

However, since Meghan pretty much threw the rule book out the window with her recent royal tour down under, Kate has been doing the same.

It's only recently that Kate began hugging children and adoring young fans. Kate and Prince William seldom engage in PDA's, but when they do, their eagle-eyed fans spot it immediately.

The rules are little more lenient for Prince Harry and his fiance, former actress Meghan Markle. They often show displays of affection when out in public, even holding hands.

Prince William and Kate are the future King and Queen, and 'need to look a little more prim and proper' when stepping out in public. Even more so when attending an official event.

While they are not directly forbidden from showing displays of affection in public, it is frowned upon at official events.
