Prince William and Kate Middleton shared a "look of love" during the Commonwealth Day service that went viral on TikTok.
William appeared to shrink down to see beneath the rim of Kate's hat.
A video of their interaction was viewed nearly 200k times and liked almost 8k times.
Anti-monarchy protesters gathered outside with banners chanting "not my king" during the service.
Harry and Meghan were not invited to process into the abbey with Prince William, causing a dispute ahead of the service.
The book Battle of Brothers by Robert Lacey claims that Harry was furious about being shunted aside.
The phone lines hummed over the preceding weekend, but William decided to skip the procession.
The order of service made no mention of Harry and Meghan, causing a snub in black and white.
Commonwealth Day has in the past been the scene of high drama, including Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's final royal job before they left Britain.
