The Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge might not be as open as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle about sharing intimate moments in public, but it doesn't mean that they don't share subtle moments like these in public.

PASSIONATE ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH
During the program note, William noted how he and his wife deeply care about mental health issues. According to "Evening Standard," the royal expressed how grateful he is for Dear Evan Hansen's help to promote mental health awareness.
Furthermore, William also assured that his foundation will continue to contribute to deliver change and provide sustainable solutions to the challenges that surround the environment and young people's careers.
For the event, William looked sharp in a navy suit while Kate chose to wear a navy bouclé dress designed by Eponine London. She paired it with a glittery pair of Jimmy Choo and a matching glittery cutch.
An avid mental health supporter, Kate previously teamed up with the "Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families" to introduce a short animated film that aimed to encourage young kids and their parents to have intimate conversations about mental illness.
SUPPORTING MENTAL WELL-BEING
The film highlighted the ways to communicate and address personal thoughts, moods, and emotions. In the video, Kate mentioned that mental health is all about how we think and feel and that talking about those things can be difficult.
Since mental health cannot be predicted due to its invisible nature unlike physical health, Kate encourages people to share their feelings with their loved ones.
