Kate Middleton and Prince William aren't usually the type of couple to indulge in public displays of affection, but when they do, it's usually quite sweet. Usually.

On Monday night, royal fans witnessed a rather awkward clip on the BBC's A Berry Merry Christmas with Mary Berry holiday TV special, which saw the Duchess of Cambridge deliberately shake William's hand off of her shoulder, after he seemingly reached out to touch her. 

Naturally, of course, Twitter was rife with speculation.

Still, as always is the case with social media, what you see isn't always what you get. The royal couple still appeared to be quite friendly with one another for the rest of the show, with host Mary Berry even asking the Duchess, "Does William ever cook for you?" to which Kate replied, "He sometimes does, actually. He's very good at breakfast."

"University days, he used to cook all sorts of meals. I think that was when he was trying to impress me, Mary! Things like Bolognese sauce and things like that."
