  • Prince William and Kate Middleton are just as "crazy about one another" as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
  • The Prince and Princess of Wales are more "proper" and "royal" in showing their affection than the Sussexes
  • The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge show their PDA differently, but they are very connected and a regal couple

Prince William and Kate Middleton aren't as showy as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, according to a body language expert.

The Prince and Princess of Wales are not as tactile as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, prompting some to think they aren't as in love with each other as the latter. However, body language expert Blanca Cobb, who has been featured on Page Six, Insider, Us Weekly, The Oprah Magazine and more publications, told Fox News Digital that both couples are "crazy about one another," they just show it differently.

According to Cobb, the future king and queen consort are "very royal-esque" when it comes to packing on the PDA.

"They love each other, they're crazy about each other. They just demonstrate it in public in a very different way. They have a different protocol for PDA as do Harry and Meghan," the expert said about the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

She added that Prince Willian and Middleton are more "proper" and "royal," noting that they "still touch one another on occasion" and "still look in each other's eyes and they will smile."

"That synchronicity or the degree of the smile lets us know that they're still very much connected to one another. So, although they're public or PDA might be a little different, they're still a very connected and regal couple," she added of the Waleses.

Meanwhile, for her, the Sussexes are "PDA-heavy." On Tuesday, Prince Harry and Markle stepped out to accept their Ripple of Hope Awards in New York City.

"They both had this level of happiness that was more magnetic than I've seen in the past," Cobb said of the pair.

However, the expert noted that, unlike Prince William and Middleton, Prince Harry and his wife do not feel the pressure of conforming to the royal protocols. Cobb said the Sussexes "were renegades with their affection," which was what felt good and natural for them.

"They don't feel the construct of being a part of the firm — as they refer to the royal family — they're not so tied to that institution where there's a level of relation that comes across when they're interacting with each other or with the public at the event," Cobb said.

Judi James, a communication and body l language expert who appears on high-profile TV and radio programs also noticed the differences between the two couples. However, according to her, the Waleses act in such a way because they wanted to be seen as two individuals, and she agreed that there were subtle PDAs between Prince William and Middleton that were not as apparent as Prince Harry and Markle's.

"William and Kate rarely touch in public and only seem to hold hands when they are out of the public eye," James explained to Page Six. "This is partly to do with tradition, and as the future king and queen, they need to be seen as two individual royals rather than just as a touch-bonded couple like Harry and Meghan."

The royal family is bracing for a highly-damaging account of Prince Harry and Meghan's grievances that led them to quit frontline duties and move to the United States
