Prince William & Kate Middleton share rare PDA moment in Belize, fans swoon over 'gorgeous couple'
Royal fans were left in awe after Prince William and Kate Middleton shared a PDA moment during their Belize tour. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, aged 39 and 40, attended an evening reception to commemorate Her Majesty The Queen's Platinum Jubilee at the Mayan ruins in Cahal Pech, Belize on Monday, March 21.
As they left the event, the royal couple was spotted walking side by side down a staircase of cobbled steps, with Prince William reaching up to help Kate in her silver Jimmy Choo heels. Kate wore a £2,500 Burgundy gown by British Designer The Vampire's Wife, which she paired with silver heeled sandals and a Mayan embroidered off-white clutch bag, while William sported a blue blazer and shirt with navy trousers. The duchess accessorized her floor-length organza gown, known as the Light Sleeper gown, with gold disc diamanté drop earrings and a bronzed make-up look.
Many of the couple's fans reacted to Duke and Duchess's brief romantic moment.
A user posted the picture of the couple and wrote, “How can you not love this couple." A royal family fan page tweeted, “William helping his wife down the stairs by holding her hand 🥰❤️#RoyalTourCaribbean." "Gorgeous couple,” wrote another user. “Future king and Queen consort ❤️,” added a user.
The event, which took place at the Mayan ruins of Cahal Pech near the town of San Ignacio in Belize's Cayo District, celebrated the best of Belizean culture.
The couple started the third date of their trip by learning about the history of the ancient Mayan archaeological site of Caracol, which is located in the Chiquibul Forest, and then went to see the country's tallest man-made structure known as the "sky palace".
The 3,000-year-old temple, built by the Maya civilization, stood in the heart of a city that housed an estimated 150,000 people and was occupied as early as 1200 BC. The royal couple climbed to the top of the palace, which is hidden deep in the jungle near the Guatemala border in western Belize, and were shown ancient Maya sculptures by Allan Moore, associate director of Belize's Institute of Archaeology.
