The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge topped off their first night in Northern Ireland with an engagement at Belfast's Empire Music Hall to celebrate young people bringing about positive change, according to Kensington Palace (opens in new tab). While there, the couple, along with "representatives from Northern Ireland’s (opens in new tab) business, arts, and sport sectors," enjoyed a performance from the band LARKS and the Cambridges even expertly poured a pint of beer each.

Amongst the crowd on what appears to be the dance floor, Kate Middleton excused herself from a conversation with a young man and placed her hand on her husband's back while he chatted with guests. Prince William looked over at his wife, placed his arm around her, and when she walked towards another guest to say hello, he pulled her close and introduced her to the people he was speaking to. This subtle-yet-adorable gesture between the future King and Queen of England made us swoon.

Duchess Kate looked smashing in a sparkly, green dress with puff sleeves from Missoni (opens in new tab), which she paired with nude heels and a clutch, while Prince William wore a navy blazer, trousers, and crisp white button-up.

Their sneaky affection towards each other is a rare sighting, although we were pleasantly surprised when they displayed PDA (opens in new tab) during a soccer game earlier in the day. During the match at Windsor Park Stadium in Belfast, Kate placed her hand on William's back and he later put his hand on her arm. Last October, at Princess Eugenie's wedding, the two shared some tender moments including held hands during the ceremony.
