Kate Middleton and Prince William rarely engage in public displays of affection or PDA. But every now and then, the royal couple has been spotted holding hands or wrapping their arms around each other on select occasions.

In 2019, Prince William and Kate Middleton joined Mary Berry in A Berry Royal Christmas. At one point, the Prince of Wales placed his arm on his wife’s shoulder, but the Princess of Wales immediately rejected the gesture by shrugging it off.

Kate Middleton Urged Prince William Not To Interrupt Her After He Placed His Arm On Her Shoulder?


According to body language expert Judi James, it also appeared as though Middleton gave Prince William a “don’t interrupt” signal, but this didn’t mean that the mom of three rejected her husband’s sweet gesture.

“It was a warm, relaxed, log-fire Christmas moment and William clearly thought it was appropriate to place a hand on his wife’s arm as they chatted about baking. Kate’s response looks like a charming but emphatic rejection of that touch, but was it really a PDA from William and was Kate really performing a knock-back?” James told Express.

The body language expert went on to say that Middleton was engaged in a conversation with Berry at the time, and she didn’t want to lose her focus on her. This is the only reason why she seemingly shrugged off Prince William’s attempt at a PDA.

“Kate’s pose here suggests almost girlish enthusiasm and even a less regal, more low-status approach to the group chat. She seems to be in the middle of listening to another woman and William’s gesture to refer the interest back to Kate via whatever he is saying might have been seen as an interruption that was wrong at that moment. The couple had also been competitive with their baking too and this might have been the kind of banter-based, playful gesture that William can be known for,” James said (via Cheat Sheet).

Kate Middleton Didn’t Get Upset With Prince William’s Attempt At A PDA?

James added that Middleton’s don’t interrupt signal did not show any sign that she was upset with Prince William’s gesture.


“Kate’s response looks like a ‘don’t interrupt’ signal, involving a whole-body wriggle to create distance rather than an angry micro shoulder-shrug or arm movement. Kate doesn’t miss a beat otherwise, suggesting this was less of a personal rejection and more like a ‘not right now’ signal,” she said.

Meanwhile, Middleton also made headlines recently after she seemingly debunked Meghan Markle’s claims that she isn’t a hugger. During a recent outing, the future queen consort was photographed hugging two individuals.
