There are many occasions when it's a good idea to keep someone on a short leash. Walking an exuberant Great Dane puppy through a Dale Chihuly exhibit is one of them. Transporting a crocodile through a busy petting zoo is another. Attending a public event with your delightfully social but perhaps easily distracted husband seems like another plausible example. Prince William and Kate Middleton seem to have the perfect marriage, but even royal life gets a dosage of reality every now and again. 


So it only makes sense that Kate Middleton would occasionally feel the need to keep Prince William on a short leash, figuratively speaking. Instead of coming across as demanding or controlling, Kate seems like the sweetest and most supportive partner a royal could have. So it's all the more adorable that Will perpetually looks eager to stick by Kate's side. 

Any good relationship has balance and equality, and we can tell that this is how the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge operate. But sometimes Kate needs to put her foot down -- and we understand. However, in the end, we know that these two are partners before all else, and we just love seeing how well they work together!

Keep reading for some of our favorite examples of Will's impressive devotion -- and physical proximity -- to Kate.
