Prince Harry and Meghan Markle showed off some PDA in Morocco on Saturday after being urged by a relationship expert to keep their public displays of affection as low-key as possible.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex recently touched down in Casablanca, Morocco, for their three-day tour of the country. Photos showed Prince Harry in his signature gray suit, while Markle wore an all-red ensemble. Prince Harry immediately held on to his pregnant wife’s hand the minute they stepped out of their vehicle. 

But just last week, the royal couple was criticized by relationship expert Sheela Mackintosh-Stewart over their constant hand-holding whenever they are outdoors. She said that Prince Harry and Markle’s PDA is already starting to irritate Brits.

“This image is overshadowing Meghan’s extensive charity work and her patronage of the Grenfell Tower cookery book in September. Modesty can translate to quiet authority and this is a powerful tool for winning over the public,” the expert told Express.

Mackintosh-Stewart also commented on how Markle has been spotted clinging onto Prince Harry’s arms whenever they are out in public. She said that senior royals do not normally do this, and they also do not hold their spouses’ hands during royal engagements.

Meanwhile, Markle and Prince Harry will be a busy three days ahead. They will be meeting with Morocco’s Crown Prince Moulay Hassan and are staying at one of King Mohammed VI’s private residences.

Thomas Reilly, Britain’s ambassador to Morocco released a statement regarding the royal couple’s tour.

“It’s hugely exciting to have their royal highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Sussex here for the next few days and I’m really excited to showcase the vital roles that girls’ education and youth employment are playing in shaping modern Morocco,” he said.

After their trip, Prince Harry and Markle are expected to fly back to London to wait for their baby’s arrival. The “Suits” alum is scheduled to give birth at the end of April.
