Prince William recreated a childhood picture of Kate Middleton, and it's adorable in its awkwardness

He did his best.

LOOK, WE ALL know Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are the couple du jour, but every so often Prince William and Kate Middleton remind us that they were once the UK’s sweethearts.

And today was an example of that.

The father-of-three is currently on a royal tour of the Middle East sans his wife, so he decided to throw her a shout-out by posing at the same spot one of her childhood photos was taken.

You see, when Kate was a toddler, she lived in Jordan with her family, and a family snap that was taken with her father and sister in Jerash back in the mid-80s was shown to Prince William upon his visit.

With William telling dignitaries that Kate ‘is very upset that I am coming here without her’, he obviously decided a grand gesture (of sorts) was needed… so he went and posed for his own snap.

And yes, it’s extra cute because it’s so, well, awkward.

The Duke of Cambridge visits Jerash, the same site that The Duchess of Cambridge visited, aged 4, with her sister and father when the family lived in Jordan.

Naturally, he wasn’t going to go full toddler-mode, grab some ould lad and hop aboard his lap, so he stood there on his tobler, sweating in his blazer, with his hands clasped firmly together.

And sure, Twitter can barely cope with the thought behind the picture.
