Royal fans were left swooning today after Kate Middleton gazed at Prince William while he adjusted his military uniform during a parade in Jamaica.
The Duke, 39, and Duchess of Cambridge, 40, attended the inaugural Jamaica Defence Force Commissioning Parade on the island nation for service personnel who have completed the Caribbean Military Academy’s officer training programme.
The Duke of Cambridge wore his white Tropical Dress of the Blues and Royals and proudly displayed his military medals in Kingston, while the Duchess looked glamorous in a white McQueen dress and Philip Treacy hat.
However royal followers couldn’t help but spot what appeared to be a candid moment for the couple, as Kate watched Prince William adjusting his uniform as he took a seat at the event.

One royal fan commented: ‘She just couldn’t stop looking at him!’
Meanwhile another wrote: ‘What is it Catherine?…I can’t blame her. Her husband is so handsome in his uniform.’
A third added: ‘She’s being more controlled about it than I would have been!’
The Duke today quoted Bob Marley as he spoke at a military parade in Jamaica on day six of his Caribbean tour with Kate, saying: ‘You never know how strong you are, until being strong is your only choice.’

William said: ‘You are graduating today as officers into an uncertain world. In your service ahead you will have to contend with climatic, geological, criminal and wider state and non-state threats to our collective safety, security and prosperity.
‘Being asked to lead men and women through uncertainty and danger is daunting. “You never know how strong you are, until being strong is your only choice”. From here the onus is on you to grow into the leaders you have been taught about in textbooks, watched on your screens and witnessed in your instructors.’
William also quoted the Queen, continuing: ‘Good leadership is hard to define, but it’s easy to recognise in others. As Catherine and I visit Jamaica in celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, I thought I might quote my grandmother on the subject.’
The Duke referred to her address to the United Nations General Assembly in 2010, in which she said: ‘I know of no single formula for success, but over the years I have observed that some attributes of leadership are universal, and are often about finding ways of encouraging people to combine their efforts, their talents, their insights, their enthusiasm and their inspiration, to work together.’

Following today’s parade, the Duke and Duchess travelled in the same open-top Land Rover that transported the Queen in 1966 and again in 1994.
The couple – whose children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are at home in London – went on to fly to The Bahamas where they were greet by prime minister Philip Davis.
William and Kate have been visiting the Caribbean to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, but the trip has faced controversy and reignited republican calls in Jamaica for independence.
Jamaican government insiders criticised William for failing to apologise for Britain’s historic role in the slave trade – despite calling the evil practice an ‘appalling atrocity’ and a ‘stain on our history’ during an address last night.
