10 Celeb Couples Who Aren't Into PDA—And 5 Who Are All About It

One of the many things that we love to do is watch our favorite Hollywood stars sharing their love life. We want to know whom they are dating, how long they have been dating and any relationship drama that ensues. We thrive off it. Whether we "ship" the couple or hope they split, we follow their every move on social media and in the tabloids to check on their status. While some people will post basic statuses declaring their love, others may share pictures.

Some celebrities claim to be in love, but do not seem to be overly affectionate in public. It is as though they hate public displays of affection—also know as PDA. These couples are the ones that we may question the status of. Then, there are the couples that are the polar opposite. These couples are constantly engaging in PDA in the tabloids and on social media. Whether they are engaging in a quick peck or holding hands, it can be enough to completely turn people off from their relationship. See whom we have found to actually truly dislike PDA versus the celebrity couples literally can't get enough of it. All in all we do have to agree that some things are best left behind closed doors.

You will likely never see Prince William and Duchess Kate performing any kind of public display of affection. With three children, many people may wonder if there is a lack of passion there—especially when Prince Harry and fiancée Megan Markle get a lot cozier in public.

This lack of PDA likely is not because of any lost love but is based on a precedent set by the Queen.

With Prince William being one of the next in line to the throne, he must keep a professional demeanor when out in public. Kate must do the same. While Travel and Leisure report that this is not an official rule, it seems to be an unspoken rule between the royals. As for Prince Harry, he has always been a bit of a rebel.

These two put their fears aside after a while and started dating. They enjoy conversing with one another, as they can relate to the struggles and triumphs that only other actors would understand. Graham even credits that to being the key to their relationship. Since they wanted to stay under the radar—and they found other ways to connect—PDA was put on the back burner.

The pair had wanted to strengthen their relationship after Ed wrapped his last tour. Cherry quit her job, and Ed took a year off. Then they traveled the world together. This kept them out of the eye of the media and—according to Sheeran—gave them “the time to fall in love properly.” Cherry is generally not seen out with Sheeran, except in very rare paparazzi photos. The only picture of PDA is the photo that Sheeran posted to announce their engagement.
