Kate Middleton and Prince William shared a sweet look under the rain.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are not as tactile as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Prince William and Middleton rarely hold hands, but they often give each other affectionate look.

A photo shared on Twitter featured the couple smiling while looking at each other. Each of them is holding an umbrella as they stare at each other, with Middleton donning her infectious smile.

“This image is so cute! the way they’re looking at each other and laughing,” the caption read.

“love is in the air no need to be clingy just to show your in love with your partner..this couple are both well mannered,” a netizen commented.

However, while some were very happy to witness Prince William and Middleton’s rare sweet moments, some couldn’t help but compare it to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. One online user even implied that the Cambridges were influenced by the Sussexes.

“Thanks to Harry and Meghan, these two have decided to show affection in public, now!” the online user opined.

It’s actually not new to Prince William and Middleton to share sweet moments together without touching each other. A few months ago, a photo of the couple staring at one another has resurfaced.

Royal fans couldn’t help but notice it because for them, the way the future king and queen smile and stare at each other speak volumes about their love and affection. One even said that it was a “look of love.”

One social media user said that Prince William and Middleton’s eyes tell it all. The couple need not say a word because they can communicate through their intense love, adoration and affection.

According to The Sun, the clip was taken at the Audi Polo Challenge charity polo match in Berkshire in 2012. It happened several years prior to Meghan Markle’s entry into the royal family. Thus, Prince William and Middleton’s sweet gestures in public couldn’t be attributed to Prince Harry and Markle alone.
