Prince Harry and Meghan travelled from their California home to campaign for vaccine equity on the East Coast in September 2021, but there were also plenty of sweet moments between the couple.

It reminded us here at HELLO! HQ of some of their public displays of affection on their royal tours, from their first major overseas visit to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga in 2018, to their trip to Africa as a family of three with baby Archie in 2019.
