Kate Middleton can be playful, too.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very formal, especially when they are out in public. Even if they are not as tactile as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, there are moments when the couple couldn’t help but hold hands.

A clip shared on Instagram featured the couple walking hand in hand. It was taken during their summer break when the couple only had one child, Prince George.

The video shows the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge holding hands while walking. However, Middleton shockingly makes a surprising move when she jumps. Unmindful of the cameras following them, Middleton takes a leap on her step which only shows how carefree the duchess can be.

In the same video, Middleton shows off her motherly side when she dutifully plays with the third in line to the throne. Prince George’s nanny was taking her break and Middleton took it as an opportunity to bond with her son. In the first part of clip, Middleton can be seen sitting on the ground while Prince George crawls in her direction.

Royal fans who saw the clip found it very sweet. Another said that it was great to see the Cambridges’ special times. A different netizen opined that the clip was full of beautiful moments.

As for Middleton’s naughty side, those who knew the duchess won’t find it surprising. Prince William revealed earlier that they were perfect match because their humor was compatible.

“She’s got a really naughty sense of humour which really helps me because I've got a really dirty sense of humour so it was good fun, we had a really good laugh, and then things happened,” Prince William said.

Prince William and Middleton’s relationship before they got married wasn’t smooth sailing. The couple had an on-again, off-again relationship. The duchess waited for almost a decade before Prince Harry’s brother proposed to her.

Speaking about their split, Middleton said that she wasn’t very happy about it. However, the experience made her stronger and emabled her to discover things about herself that she had not realized before.
