PDA Alert! Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Are Extremely Affectionate During NYC Outing

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just broke a major royal rule during their latest outing (not that the queen can really get mad now that they’re non-working royals).

This week, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived in New York City to attend Global Citizen Live from Central Park, which will take place on September 25 on the Great Lawn. One of the first things they did was visit the One World Observatory, where they paid their respects to 9/11 victims alongside Governor Kathy Hochel and Mayor Bill de Blasio.

It didn’t take long for us to notice that Prince Harry and Markle were packing on the PDA during the public appearance. One fan even shared a video Twitter, which shows the couple holding hands after greeting the press. Later in the clip, the duke is rubbing Markle’s back and wrapping his arm around her.

The PDA might surprise some people, especially since members of the royal family aren’t supposed to show affection in public. However, now that Prince Harry and Markle have stepped down as senior royals, they’re no longer required to abide by the rules.

Fans were overjoyed to see the couple so happy. One person wrote, “Harry and Meghan arriving in New York and getting on with their lives while looking amazing.” Another added, “It’s crazy how this couple has made me feel like I’m watching a fairytale. It’s what we dream of as young girls and yearn for as we grow up. It’s simple. It’s affection, it’s mutual respect and admiration, It’s love. It’s them.”

We could watch this footage all day long.
