It’s hard to think of a time when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan aren’t holding hands.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are well known for being affectionate in public.
The public display of affection isn’t something fans see often from members of the royal family, that is until Harry started dating his future wife, Meghan. When the Duke and Duchess of Sussex step out as a couple they almost always have their hands locked together. And now a body language expert is offering an explanation for why they do that all the time.
Fans have gotten so used to seeing Meghan and Harry arm in arm that it would make headlines if they showed up somewhere together and weren’t holding hands. Body language expert Judi James said that gesture “focuses the attention back onto Harry while making him look rather more alpha as he walks ahead with his chest splayed.”

Ever since they announced their engagement in November 2017, royal watchers have kept a close eye on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The royal couple has never shied away from showing public displays of affection, often attending royal engagements hand-in-hand – unlike Harry’s older brother and sister-in-law, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Although there are no official rules against them making physical contact in public, it seems some members of the royal family avoid being affectionate.

However, on many occasions, Meghan has used both of her arms to hold Harry’s hand. The royal body language expert Judi James explains “This hand and arm clasp suggest a less secure trait though as she tucks in behind Harry’s arm, holding both his hand and placing her free hand on his lower arm, gazing up at him as though seeking attention and/or reassurance.”
Another body language expert and astrologer, Inbaal Honigman, gave her take on why Meghan and Harry always hold onto one another’s hands in public.
“Looking at Harry and Meghan, they are certainly in love. They haven’t been married for that many years, and are still having babies, which is a very loving stage of a relationship. So their constant hand-holding, cuddling, leaning on each other, are displays of affection, which are definitely genuine and not for the cameras,” Honigman told Express.
