Kate Middleton slaps Prince William’s butt in viral video, 'goofy' Duchess grabs eyeballs
Members of the British Royal families are instructed to follow strict protocols while appearing in public. They are often seen as highly formal with each other regardless of the title of their relationship. In fact, it is rare to see couples from the royal household displaying any sort of affection or playfulness toward each other in public. Well, the stiff British royals can be a bit 'naughty'. In a video going viral, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, was seen smacking her husband's butt. Well, what can we say? The royals surely are like us sometimes.
The incident took place on the BAFTA red carpet. Kate along with Prince William was walking on the carpet when the Duchess unexpectedly slapped her husband on his butt. Contrary to their aristocratic conduct, the couple appeared goofy like two young lovers. In the clip, the duo is seen walking on the red carpet amid the cheer and clamour of the gathered crowd. Kate is dressed in a white one-shoulder gown, while William looked dapper in a black suit.
The video of Kate's 'act' was posted on the official Instagram handle of vogue magazine. It was captioned, "Princess Kate gave Prince William a love tap as they arrived to the 2023 #BAFTAs, proving that royals really are just like us— a regular husband and wife that sometimes like to cop a feel.”
Netizens were quick to comment on the clip. One stated, "I love this, I really really do. I love to see it. However, if this was Meghan giving Harry a 'love tap' the papers would be going wild, everyone would be going wild.” Some thought Kate's action was unintentional.
Another person commented, "She definitely did not try to do that. They would never do that in public. I think she was just trying to grab his hand."
