The Prince and Princess of Wales sent royal fans wild this afternoon as they exchanged a loving look during the Order of the Garter service.
Members of the royal family gathered at St George’s Chapel in Windsor this afternoon to take part in the historic ceremony.
She was in great spirits as she stood outside the castle to watch Prince William in the procession of the Princess of Wales.
The royal, 40, wore a traditional dress and plumed hat as she walked with her uncle Prince Edward, 59.
During the procession, the father of three was seen looking at his wife.
‘The look of love!’ Royal fans went wild today as the Princess of Wales beamed adoringly at her husband from outside St George’s Chapel in Windsor.
Returning her gaze, the Princess of Wales was snapped from the side looking adoringly at her husband.
The princess chose a chic black-and-white spotted midi dress by Alessandra Rich for the occasion – reminiscent of a dress her late mother-in-law wore to Royal Ascot in 1988.
Looking suitably smart, Kate held her cream leather clutch bag in front of her in response to William.
What’s more, royal fans have noticed that the heartwarming photo is almost identical to one taken at the Garter Service in 2014.
At the time, the couple had recently welcomed Prince George and were still the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
While Prince William wore the same formal attire, the Princess of Wales opted for a light blue spotted coat dress and matching hat.
Pictured standing under a marquee with the then-Countess of Wessex, Kate flashed her husband a huge smile as she accompanied her father.
Posting the picture on Twitter, one fan said: ‘History repeats itself […] Their love is everything.’

Another added: ‘Their love grew stronger and her smile grew bigger with time.’
A third wrote: ‘The look of love between the Prince and Princess of Wales (and the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh too) is so clear and beautiful.’
‘He feels every ounce of swagger,’ said a fourth. ‘How beautiful.’
Kate’s sophisticated high-neck gown features voluminous sleeves with luscious button detailing.
It features ruching around the middle which is almost identical to Diana’s Viktor Edelstien.
Taking style notes from her late mother-in-law, Kate even worked her dress print into her hat.

Kate’s black Philip Treacy headpiece features feathers that perfectly match the print of her dress.
When Diana attended Ascot 35 years ago, the Princess of Wales expertly matched the print of her polka dot dress with her statement hat.
Keeping her jewelery minimal, Princess Diana opted for pearl drop earrings – which she wore at the Queen’s funeral last September – and a matching bracelet.
The royal finished off her ensemble with a nude clutch bag and a pair of black peep-toe white heels by Jennifer Chamandi, apparently inspired by a pair Diana wore to Ascot.
The princess opted for a brown-toned smokey eye and then completed her makeup with a nude lipstick.
The Most Noble Order of the Garter, which is the oldest British order of chivalry and the oldest national order of knighthood in existence, is limited to 24 Knights or Ladies Companions in addition to the King and Prince of Wales.
It also includes ‘supernumerary members’ including foreign emperors and other royal families.
The Order of the Garter is a 700-year-old tradition founded by Edward III in 1348, and recognizes contributions of great public service from dignitaries – usually Lords and Ladies of the United Kingdom.
