PDA alert! Every time the British Royal Family have broken protocol by showing public displays of affection

Royals have emotions too!

By Chloe Lal
British Royals have long been expected to carry themselves in a certain way, as dictated by royal protocol.
But sometimes our favourite Brits just can't keep their hands to themselves, especially when it comes to their lovely husbands and wives.
We all let out a giggle when we saw Mike Tindall go in for a very cheeky bum grab, pinching his wife Zara Tindall's derriere at an event a few years back.

The couple, who are proud parents to Mia, Lena and Lucas were spotted strolling around the fairgrounds at the Festival of British Eventing at Gatcombe Park.
But when it comes to being caught out with a cheeky intimate touch, Zara and Mike certainly aren't alone among the members of the monarchy.
Even before their royal exit in 2020 let them break free from royal protocol, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were happy to show the world how smitten they were, smashing out the royal rule book along the way.
Though it's been years since their royal honeymoon, the couple still seem to be in their loved-up honeymoon phase - we just see a little less of it now they're living in the US with their two children.

Still, when this royal pair make appearances they can always be seen holding hands and standing close.
Meanwhile, Harry's older brother Prince William showed off a similar level of affection shortly after he and wife Kate Middleton married.
There were tender looks, plenty of hand-holding and even a few stolen kisses here and there at royal outings.
Over time, the couple became more serious members of the royal family and scaled back the PDA a touch - but the love between them is still so clear.
Just look at how in love they look even after all these years...

These days, they avoid holding hands (unless we're really lucky) and instead we get a glimpse of their chemistry through a look or a slight knee graze.
Since celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary in 2021, however, we have seen a touch more royal PDA from the pair... but only a touch!
And they're not the only royal couple still prone to indulge in some PDA.
Sit back, and fall in love as we remind ourselves of all the times the royal protocol was thrown out the window!
