Why are some royal fans so upset that Harry & Meghan hold hands?

if you have followed Meghan Markle and Prince Harry from the day they started dating, you would have noticed that they hold hands all the time. while this gesture is seen as normal for common people, it seems that the new royal couple are not given the same freedom.

Meghan and Harry hold hands

While the cambridges, Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton have always maintained a certain distance and have almost never displayed any affection in public, the Sussexes have not shyed away from showing that they care for each other and that they are deeply in love.

Why is it so important?

And this seems to greatly annoy a certain part of the British public. These rather conservative royal fans have criticized the couple for showing to much affection affection and have argued that such display should be reserved to private situations. They argue that while in public or during public event, Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle are representing the queen and the crown and should not draw attention to themselves.

They call on the couple to follow the example of Prince William and wife Kate Middleton who rarely touch or kiss each other while in public.

Are they right to think so? Here is my take.

I believe that there is nothing wrong with the couple holding hands while in public. Unlike his brother Prince William who has to maintain a certain composure or decorum in public because of his status in the royal family, Prince Harry does not have to do so since he will never be king.

The rules are therefore relaxed when it comes to him and Meghan Markle. He chose to live his life a certain way and is not bothered by all the criticism. For that, i say good on him.
