Meghan Markle and Prince Harry shared a sweet kiss at the polo – leaving the royal’s teammate awkwardly posing nearby.
It is thought to be the first time the pair have locked lips in public since their wedding day in May.
The rare moment happened on stage as the Duchess of Sussex presented Harry’s victorious team with the winning trophy at the Sentebale Polo Cup 2018.
She gave the team captain a kiss on each cheek before turning to her husband for a kiss on the lips.
Social media users thought it was an adorable moment, with one saying "I love this couple" and another commenting "love is love very sweet".
Meghan also later rubbed Harry’s back as the couple left the polo field, holding hands.
Meghan looked a picture of elegance today as she made a surprise appearance at the fundraising polo match to cheer on Harry.
The Duchess channelled 50s chic after opting for a navy Carolina Herrera dress with a flared skirt – thought to cost around £2,300 – teamed with a pair of £550 nude heels.
Her locks were tied in a loose bun and she chose a summery rattan clutch to complete the outfit.
Meanwhile, Harry went for more casual attire in jeans, a white shirt and a grey blazer.
The 36-year-old former Suits actress watched him score two goals from the royal box as the team ran out 5-4 winners.
At one point during the game Harry sent the ball flying inches from a photographer when attempting to defend his goal – but he quickly apologised for the mishap.
The sporting fixture has become an important annual event raising funds and awareness for Harry’s charity Sentebale.
It’s an organisation which works with children and teenagers in Lesotho and Botswana who are coming to terms with being HIV positive, have Aids or have lost their parents to the disease.
The sweltering temperatures meant the match between Harry’s Sentebale St Regis team, captained by Sentebale ambassador Nacho Figueras, and the Royal Salute players, led by Malcolm Borwick, was shortened to protect the polo ponies and the breaks were lengthened.
Mr Figueras, who was invited to Harry’s wedding with wife Delfina Blaquier, said about Meghan: "She’s lovely, she’s wonderful, I’m very happy for Harry.
"I think they’re both lucky to have found each other, I’m very excited about this new chapter in his life."
Speaking about his brief chat with the duchess while on stage, he said: "She said that she enjoyed the game.
"She watched the game with my wife, which is wonderful because they were able to talk about polo and she could learn more about the game."
Writing in the event’s official programme, Sentebale co-founders Harry and Lesotho’s Prince Seeiso said: "Since we established Sentebale in 2006, the charity has developed robust programmes – founded on education, care and psychological support – that give hope to thousands of children and young people affected by HIV every year.
"Despite this progress, adolescents continue to be at greater risk of HIV infection, with 1,700 young people newly infected with HIV each day.
"Research shows adolescents are lagging behind on multiple fronts, their knowledge of HIV, testing, treatment and prevention reflects the stigma that is preventing young people from accessing lifesaving health services."
The polo event, held at the Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club, usually features international professional players and talented amateurs.
Among those watching the polo was the Duke’s friend and former mentor Mark Dyer, as well as ex-England rugby star Mike Tindall, who is married to the Queen’s granddaughter Zara Tindall.
