Cameras Caught Harry and Meghan's PDA During the Cirque du Soleil Performance, and It's a Very Tender Moment

We already know Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are no strangers to PDA. (Pats on the back! Hands on thighs! Double hand-holdings! Kissing in public!)

The royal couple, who have raised the public affection bar way higher than any previous working royals ever have, continued their streak of lovey-doviness at last night’s performance of Cirque du Soleil’s “Totem” show. 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived at the show, which was held at the Royal Albert Hall to benefit Prince Harry’s Sentebale charity, dressed to the nines. Markle wore a Roland Mouret navy sequin maxi dress ($5,595) with knee-high slit and rocked a bold, fun (super out-of-character) berry lip. 

But just as the two took their seats (and before the lights went down), cameras caught the most tender moment between the expecting parents. (Markle told reporters this week that she’s due in late April or early May). As the announcer thanks the Sussexes for making this performance possible, Harry reaches under Meghan’s arm and grabs her hand. Their fingers interlock, and she rests her other hand on top, just as the show is about to start. 

Markle then mouths, “Thank you,” probably in response to the announcer. But also (possibly?) in response to Harry’s romantic gesture.

*Sigh* Isn’t love grand regal?
