People around the globe kiss every day, but for some reason, not all kisses are created equally. There’s something magical about watching people smooch, especially if they’re celebs or royalty.
There are hundreds of formal events where we can get a good look at our favorite royals locking lips with each other, but weddings are definitely the most thrilling to follow. The problem is that you can’t always catch the perfect moment of the kiss. Lucky for us, professional photographers are working on those high-end events, snapping shots of every minute detail and, of course, the grand prize — the royal kiss. Even if it’s not a wedding, there’s still a high chance of capturing a royal smooch on camera.
The King and Queen of Spain, the British lovebirds — Prince William and Duchess Catherine, Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and Daniel Westling, the iconic power couple Prince Charles and Diana Spencer, and many other royal couples have been stealing the spotlight with their passionate kisses in public, and we have photos to prove it!
