TikTok is currently losing its mind right now over these resurfaced clips of the time Tom Cruise may have gotten a little too close to Kate Middleton (and how Prince William may have looked a little peeved, to say the least!)
On April 17, a TikTok account by the name of @katemiddleton.fp shared a now-viral video of Kate, William, and Cruise with the caption, “No miren a su esposa.” (When translated: it supposedly says “Don’t Look at Your Wife.”)
(Keep in mind, this clip is from May 19, 2022, when the Prince and Princess of Wales arrived for the Royal Film Performance of Top Gun: Maverick!)
No miren a su esposa ⚠️💥 #princewilliam #princesscatherine #katemiddleton #fyp #tiktok #viral
In the ten-second video, we start with a clip of Kate laughing, talking to Cruise, and later, Cruise holding her hand to guide her up the stairs. Then, in the last clip, we see both William and Cruise holding their hands out for Kate to hold onto while walking down the steps.
So, two things have come from this resurfaced clip: people are convinced Cruise looks smitten with the Princess of Wales, and they believe William looks jealous because of it. However, quite a few fans are convinced it was nothing more than Cruise being courteous and William being nervous.
One TikTok user commented: “I don’t think Tom meant anything other than trying to just be a gentleman, Prince William just probably isn’t used to this kind of stuff.” However, many fans also commented things like “Tom was touching her a little too much and was a little too close that night, William had every right to be uncomfortable & protective!”
Safe to say, the internet is debating to the fullest over these clips.
Is Tom Cruise Buddies with the British Royal Family?
Short answer: yes! Not only has he been seen talking to many members of the family in the past thirty years (including Princess Diana!), but he and Queen Elizabeth II grew very close before her death. Along with that, William and Kate made his Christmas gift list last year!
Did Tom Cruise Break Royal Protocol?
Yes and no. Per the monarchy’s website, they claim “there are no obligatory codes of behaviour when meeting The Queen or a member of the Royal Family.” However, many stars have talked about the unwritten rules that had to know before meeting the Prince and Princess of Wales. So while it’s not explicitly written anywhere, it’s a general rule that you don’t touch members of the British royal family.
Does William Have a Pattern of Being Jealous?
Like any relationship, they get jealous and apparently have rather loud fights, but seeing William jealous of men around Kate is not a pattern eagle-eyed fans have noticed. However, back in 2007 when they briefly split up, William was reportedly jealous of Kate going on a date with his rival and Eton schoolmate Henry Ropner, per IBT.
‘William and Kate: A Royal Love Story’ by Christopher Andersen
Prince William and Kate Middleton’s life as parents and husband and wife has been well documented over the course of their marriage. But when royal fans go back long before the couple’s 2011 nuptials, they find a love story with twists and turns. Christopher Andersen’s William and Kate: A Royal Love Story chronicles the couple’s early days in college, through their breakups, and finally to their memorable engagement. This is a must-have addition to any royal fan’s bookshelf.
