The new generations of royal couples are a lot less reserved than their elders — in particular, Prince William and Kate Middleton, and his brother Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle.
William and Kate have a storied romance that began at the University of St. Andrew’s when they were both college students. The bombshell brunette reportedly caught the attention of the future king when she wore a sheer dress at a charity fashion show in 2002. The pair — especially Kate — were regularly photographed in the years that followed and, after a brief split, reunited to eventually marry in April 2011. The couple have never been shy about their affection for each other, especially as they’ve welcomed their three adorable kids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
Harry and Meghan are another royal couple who aren’t afraid to show their love for each other. Princess Diana’s youngest son began dating the ‘Suits’ alum back in 2016, keeping their romance under wraps for several months. After news of their relationship broke, he publicly released a statement demanding media stop false reporting around his then-girlfriend — ultimately going public with an appearance at Toronto’s Invictus Games in Sept. 2017. Just a few months later, the pair confirmed their engagement at Kensington Palace, tying the knot as the world looked on in April 2018. The couple welcomed their son Archie the following year. Ultimately, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex decided to step away from their roles as working senior royals — moving to California to focus on their philanthropic projects.
