Kate Middleton and Prince William Put on a Rare Show of PDA at Surprise Engagement

Tags:

Prince William and Kate Middleton are not usually ones to put on an affectionate display while in public, but it seems there are some exceptions.

While visiting a celebration for the charity Shout, a text messaging service helping to support anyone in need, the pair were pictured looking completely relaxed, with some sweet PDA moments in between.

The duo stepped out together on November 12 for Shout’s Crisis Volunteer celebration event at the Troubadour White City Theatre in London. During the poignant event, Kate and Will learned about how much impact the helpline had made so far.

At one point during the event, Will was seen holding Kate’s arm, before placing a hand on her back as they left a stage — how cute!

For the event, Kate looked chic as usual wearing a smart grey blazer by one of her favorite designers, Smythe. She paired it with maroon trousers by Joseph and Gianvito Rossi suede pumps. The duchess also opted to wear her hair in loose waves and kept her makeup minimal. Very chic! 

During the engagement, the couple spoke to a number of guests who have helped bring the text support service to life.

Since being launched by Kate, William, Prince Harry, and Meghan in May 2019, the service has had 145,000 text conversations with people in need, with six million messages in total being exchanged.

William shared an emotional speech during the engagement, telling guests, “Catherine and I heard outside about how many of you are waking up at 3 am to answer the peak demand. The fact we’ve had to launch Shout shows just how in need the mental health sector is at the minute.”

He continued, “We still have an enormous challenge ahead of us. Catherine and I, and I know I speak for Harry and Meghan as well, couldn’t be more proud of what Shout has accomplished.”
