The sweet moment between Prince William and Kate were celebrated by royal fans around the world. If you missed a small detail, you could quickly be taught: The kiss of the royal couple also took place on a very special day – the international kissing day, which is celebrated every year on July 6th. But Kiss Day or not, the question is whether etiquette allows for Public Display of Affection (PDA) moments.
“We know they are very affectionate,” reveals royal expert Emily Nash
There is no royal protocol banning public displays of love, but Prince William and Kate often limit PDAs to less formal, more intimate appearances. Royal etiquette expert Myka Meier (40), founder and director of Beaumont Etiquette, puts it in People magazine: “They are trusted to use their own judgment to decide when to [PDAs] are appropriate”.
“We’re less likely to see PDA at a more somber or more formal event than at a casual event where it’s considered more appropriate,” explains Meier. In fact, Kate and William are always very independent in the spotlight and hardly ever kiss. But Royal editor of “Hello!” magazine Emily Nash reveals: “We know that they [Kate und William] are very affectionate”. It shows up in happy moments like winning a polo game.
