In a video posted by The Sun, Harry is seen appearing to reject Meghan’s attempt to hold his hand during the Young Leaders Reception at Buckingham Palace. In the clip, Meghan appears to reach for Harry’s hand, but he pulls away quickly. This probably isn’t a sign of any trouble in paradise—just an old habit dying hard for Meghan and Harry trying to be mindful of royal etiquette.
It is an unwritten rule that royal couples keep their hands off each other at public event.
Harry’s brother and sister in-law, prince Williams and Kate Middleton also adhere to the unspoken rules.
“it is very clear that Williams and Kate are emotional closed but they do not prove their love particularly when on official state business” .
Harry and Meghan might be taking a cue from Kate and Williams on holding back on Public display of affection.
