How Prince William has been inspired by Harry’s affection

Olivia Hayes

Prince William has never been seen as the affectionate type.

Since he married Kate Middleton, they are rarely seen having intimate moments – but that’s all down to royal protocol, right?

Well, maybe. But since Prince Harry married Meghan Markle, they are always seen to be intimate with each other.

Between holding hands and rubbing each others’ back, they’re never not in touch with each other – and it has seemed to inspire William.

Recently, he is seen being way more affectionate towards Kate.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were seen holding hands at Prince Eugenie’s wedding back in October while most recently William was seen holding Kate’s back over the weekend.

Speaking of the recent change in affection, body language expert Judi James told the Daily Mail: “Now that Meghan has joined The Firm, her own determinedly tactile behaviour with Harry does seem to have had a profound ‘echo’ effect on William and Kate’s rituals.

“Normally it’s a younger sibling that will mimic or mirror the older, but in Harry and William’s case it seems to be William taking his lead from his younger brother and his wife.”

It can only be a good thing, right?!
