Kate Middleton and Prince William flirt from time to time.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge aren’t as tactile as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are always holding hands whenever they step out together. Prince William and Middleton rarely do this, but there were times when they couldn’t stop but hold each other, too.

In the 2012 documentary “Kate and William: The First Year,” Prince William was shown beating Middleton in a race. The latter was frustrated from her defeat and pretended to push her husband in the lake, but the couple ended up holding each other.

“They are always touching each other,” body language expert Elizabeth Kunkhe said.

Kunkhe added that the passion and chemistry between the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were “very clear.”

“They smile at each other, they flirt with each other. It's really cute to watch and they are very sexy,” the expert explained.

As for Middleton’s disappointment following their boat race, it was believed that the royal mom of three felt that way because she’s an experienced rower. When Prince William and Middleton broke up in 2007, she signed up for a charity challenge with an all-female dragon boat racing crew called Sisterhood.

The group billed themselves as “an elite group of female athletes, talented in many ways, toned to perfection with killer looks, on a mission to keep boldly going where no girl has gone before.” Middleton and the other girls aimed to raise money for children’s hospices.

During Prince William and Middleton’s second major split, the future king made a life-changing promise to Middleton. He told her that he would marry her, but he didn’t want to be pressured to the altar. Middleton understood Prince William and didn’t mind waiting.

Due to the long wait, Middleton was dubbed “Waity Katie.” The duchess hated it and “absolutely despised” the moniker. However, she had the last laugh because in the end, she got her prince.

In 2010, Prince William and Middleton showed up together for their engagement interview. Shortly after that, the Duchess of Cambridge experienced an immediate transformation as she was more poised and confident when she made her first public engagement with Prince William.
