Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton, and Prince William showcased a more relaxed and affectionate side during the South Korea state visit to the U.K. The couple surprised onlookers with two unexpected moves, emphasizing their genuine connection amidst formalities.

As captured in a video by Rebecca English of the Daily Mail, the Prince affectionately placed his hand on Kate’s back as they exited the Picture Gallery, and Kate reciprocated the gesture with a reassuring pat. This intimate moment between the royal couple defied traditional norms, highlighting their discretion in choosing when to express their affection publicly.
