Royal fans have spotted Prince William making a romantic gesture towards the Duchess of Cambridge at a recent outing.
The couple were among the royals at Monday’s Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey – an event the Queen was forced to pull out of attending.
After the service, William and Kate made their way outside the Abbey, where a line-up of wellwishers was waiting for them – with some eager to present the duchess with flowers.
As the weather had turned wet, Kate was offered an umbrella as she left the Abbey – but declined to take it, maybe knowing she’d need both hands free to carry her flowers and handbag.However, footage shows William then taking the umbrella and holding it over his wife to shield her from the rain as she carried out her duties.
And after the sweet moment was pointed out on Twitter, royal fans were quick to praise William.One said: “This makes me smile. Small thoughtful gestures are the building blocks of a deeply loving, stable relationship.”
Another wrote: “I love this! I don’t even care that he’s a prince. His devotion is so wonderful!”While another joked: “Those hats are expensive! He was guarding an investment!”Meanwhile, William and Kate will be hoping for better weather next week when they embark on their Caribbean tour.The tour, which will celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, kicks off on Saturday and will take in Belize, Jamaica and The Bahamas before ending on March 26.
Kensington Palace said William and Kate will visit historic Mayan sites and celebrate the rich culture of the Garifuna community in Belize, as well as explore the country’s biodiversity.In Jamaica, they will engage with the Jamaican Defence Force and celebrate the legacy of Bob Marley and other ground-breaking Jamaican musicians alongside potential stars of the future.In the Bahamas, the Cambridges will visit a number of islands and experience a world-famous junkanoo parade.
The pair has asked to meet as many local people as possible, the palace said.
A Kensington Palace spokeswoman added: “Their Royal Highnesses are very much looking forward to the visit, which will be their first joint official overseas tour since the onset of Covid-19 in 2020.”
