Do the Royals Really Have to Follow Strict PDA Rules?

The truth is: The internet is
fully obsessed with royal PDA. Like, to the point where a mere touch of a
thigh can send people spiraling over whether or not protocol was broken.
So what exactly ARE the rules when it comes to public displays of royal
affection? Let’s break it down.

But honestly, it mostly comes
down to a general sense of decorum. As royal etiquette expert, Myka Meier once
explained to People: Senior members of the royal family would likely not
be told how to interact or when they can or cannot show PDA and would be
trusted to use their better judgment as to when it’s appropriate.

The royals often adjust PDA to
mirror the formality of the event they are attending. At a somber or more
formal event, we are less likely to see PDA than at a casual event where it
would be deemed more fitting.”

For example, here’s Meghan and
Harry all up on each other at an informal event:

Meanwhile, there’s been a lot
of fuss about the royals “breaking protocol” every time they so much
as hold hands, but they’re absolutely allowed to show affection towards
one another—even at official events. Proof? Here’s Meghan and Harry holding
hands at an official engagement in October:
