Meghan Markle and Prince Harry use their wedding rings to send out this signal

This is too much.

This is too much.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are probably the most talked about couple in the world, with the titles Duke and Duchess of Sussex now synonymous with couple goals.

From their iconic royal tour of Australasia (possibly the most successful tour of all time), and Meghan’s groundbreaking speeches, to their public love of dogs and excitement at welcoming their Spring baby - referred to by Harry as ‘our little bump’.

This week, the Duke and Duchess melted the nation’s hearts once more, with some eagle eyed royal fans spotting a comfort technique both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle use when they miss each other.

Spoiler alert - it is ridiculously sweet.

The two royals seem to play with their wedding rings when the other is not there, with multiple viewers spotting Meghan nervously twiddling her wedding band as she stood solo on-stage at the British Fashion Awards to present Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller with the gong for British Womenswear Designer of the Year.

And it’s not just Meghan, with Harry spotted doing the exact same thing at an event he attended without Meghan.

Why the constant ring playing? It is most probably a subconscious comfort mechanism, with the Duke and Duchess missing having their other half and back up with them.

Well, that's just lovely.
