It's Valentine's Day and to celebrate the occasion, HELLO! is taking a look back at when the royals have locked lips in public.

Of course, we've seen most royals share a kiss as newlyweds after their weddings, but what about rare PDAs on their engagements?

King Frederik and Queen Mary recently delighted the crowds outside Christiansborg Palace as they shared a tender moment following Frederik's proclamation as King.

And while Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi married in private in July 2020, the property developer couldn't help but planting a kiss on his wife Beatrice's kiss at a red carpet last year.

The Prince and Princess of Wales have also shared a sweet PDA moment or two over the years, including after Prince William's victory at a charity polo match last summer.

Take a look at the sweetest photos of royals sharing a kiss in the gallery below…
