Since recently announcing that they’re expecting their first baby, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have signaled that they’re more emotionally connected and in sync now than ever before. Body Language Expert Blanca Cobb explained to Us Weekly that the connection between the two has intensified over the past couple of weeks. “He supports her. He’s all about her,” Cobb said of Harry’s affectionate notions towards his wife while the two are on their first royal tour together.

Though the royal tour has been a crazy few weeks for Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37, the pair is apparently doing a great job keeping their heads above water. “No matter if someone grabs their attention, they maintain a physical connection,” the Lies in Love author said. “Their emotional connection gets stronger through hand-holding because touch releases Oxytocin, a bonding hormone.”

Cobb also added that the way Harry clenches Meghan’s hand proves that she is his No. 1 priority. She explained that since Harry holds the former Suits actress’ hand with his on top, “he’s in charge” and “he’s being protective of his wife.” Cobb also pointed out that their interlocked fingers, as well as the way that the couple walks together, signifies an emotional connection. “Leading with the same foot shows that they’re emotionally in sync,” she explained.

The couple’s devotion shows that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex can lean on each other for anything. “Her hold suggests that he’s her stability and support,” Cobb said, referring to their arrival in Dubbo. “And by the smile on Harry’s face, it’s definitely OK with him.”

While Harry has proven time and time again that Meghan is his lady for life, she too has proved her love for Harry on multiple accounts. The Duchess did the sweetest gesture for her Prince (literally) when she held an umbrella for Harry, shielding him from the rain as best as she could, while they visited Dubbo. They also managed to pack on some PDA while gazing into each other’s eyes under the umbrella in the pouring rain — it was so romantic! It’s a good thing that Meghan and Harry’s bond is super strong because the couple is expecting their first royal bundle of joy in the spring — and we honestly can’t wait!
