The Internet seemed to erupt when Meghan Markle threw her own fashion habits completely out the window with a bright yellow number during the "Your Commonwealth" Youth Challenge Reception in London's Marlborough House.


The Twitterverse was definitely all about the Markle Sparkle:

But while walking in her strikingly vibrant Brandon Maxwell frock, many people missed when the Duchess and Prince Harry shared a brief hand-holding moment.


There was also this sweet interaction of Meghan touching Harry's arm.


Adorable, right? Well, yes ... except that the general rule is that working royals usually don't hold hands, kiss, or display any other form of physical affection.

Of course, royal fans know that this definitely isn't the first time the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have shown a little PDA. In fact, just a few weeks ago, the two were spotted linking arms and holding hands while wandering around the grounds of the Royal Ascot racecourse.



Still, when it comes to sharing affection, Meghan and Harry are usually pretty careful about when they choose to do so. Take the Young Leaders Reception at Buckingham Palace on June 26, for example. The pair opted to keep their hands to themselves because of the immediate presence of the Queen.

"It is rare to see royal couples holding hands on official outings," royal etiquette expert Myka Meier told People.

"While we are much less likely to see The Duke and Duchess holding hands in public, we often see Prince Charles and The Duchess of Cornwall holding hands — it’s all simply a matter of preference for each couple and is also likely dependent on the nature of the event they are attending."

So, the verdict? It's a rare occurrence, but not the end of the world if royal protocol is broken from time to time. Besides, the Queen appears to be lighting up a bit on the regal rule book, and with Charles and Camilla (who seem to be a bit freer with their affection) next in line for the throne, maybe we'll see a bit more hand-holding cuteness from all the royals in the future.
