They couldn't stop smiling

Kate Middleton and Prince William may not be holding hands and linking arms at official royal events like Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, but that doesn't mean their outings are completely devoid of public displays of affection. Instead, as evidenced by a sweet interaction the parents of three shared on Tuesday morning, when on duty as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, they simply seem to prefer exchanging little smiles and whispered comments, rather than any showier PDA.

The blink-and-you'll-miss-it interaction went down at Westminster Abbey, where Will and Kate were attending a service in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force. As seen in a video captured of the royals before the service began, Harper's Bazaar reports, Will and Kate were seated in the front row of the church when Will suddenly appeared to have a hard time stifling a chuckle. Apparently sensing her husband's struggle, Kate turned to Will, who tried and failed to hide his smile by ducking his head, then gave in and, it seems, explained what exactly was so funny, causing Kate to break into a grin of her own. See the cute moment for yourself, here:

This isn't the first time Prince William has been caught losing his composure in Westminster Abbey. In April, just two days after he and Kate welcomed Prince Louis into the family, Will attended the Anzac Day memorial service at the royal church. While sitting next to Harry and Meghan, Will was caught on camera blinking more and more slowly until fully dozing off for a minute. Unfortunately, since Kate stayed home from the event to be with their newborn, she wasn't around to share a conspiratorial giggle with her exhausted husband or, you know, give him a shove to keep him awake.
