Please stop everything and melt into the nearest available puddle, because Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are out here being incredibly romantic. Hot on the heels of Harry being caught fixing Meghan Markle's ponytail during Day One of their royal tour of South Africa, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were seen kissing each other. In public. In front of cameras. If that isn't a break of royal protocol I! Don't! Know! What! Is!

Anyway, the pic is here, try not to fly into a fit of royal-related jealousy and FOMO.

Speaking of protocol, apparently Meghan and Harry have fully thrown out the rule book during this tour—as this PDA moment seems to suggest. According to Vanity Fair reporter Katie Nicholl, the couple have requested there be as "little formality as possible" while they're working in South Africa—meaning they don't expect the people they meet to bow or curtsy, and they're totally fine with being called by their first names. Ya know, instead of his/her royal highness.

“It’s very much how they want things done,” a source said. “There is no protocol that says you have to bow or curtsy when you meet them, it’s really up to the individual.” (Cool, would fully do a million curtsies in the presence of Meghan Markle regardless.)

And though we're only a couple of days into the tour, the royal couple have already been showing plenty of PDA, from hand-holding to gazing lovingly at one another. Love is real, you guys!
