Harry Styles and Taylor Russell’s romance appears to still be going strong, as the lovebirds have been spotted putting on another cosy display – and it hasn’t gone unnoticed how relaxed they are in each other’s company.
The former One Direction star, 29, and Canadian actress, also 29, sparked rumours they were an item earlier this year when Taylor attended Harry’s Love On Tour shows.
He then returned the favour by supporting her at her theatre debut in London, with after-party pics showing they were getting on like a house on fire.
Fast forward to now and fans have clocked the hot couple out and about on several occasions as Harry takes a break from life on the road.
Most recently, Harry and the Bones and All star were pictured on a romantic stroll in the capital.
The As It Was singer was snapped holding hands with the stage star as they walked through Newington Green, in North London, on Sunday afternoon.

Clutching matching cups of coffee, the stars were deep in conversation on a 30-minute wander.
It’s said they later ‘headed back to a block of flats together’.
Keeping a low profile and in stark contrast to his glitzy stage outfits, Harry wore a grey hoodie and black puffer coat with casual trousers.
Most likely in a bid to remain incognito, the X Factor alum kept his hood up and also wore a baseball cap, as well as sunglasses.
Taylor, meanwhile, was a bit more conspicuous in a tangerine Nike jacket.
Something that hasn’t gone unnoticed about the loved-up pair is how low-key they’re being with their romance.
Judi James, Metro.co.uk’s body language expert, explained: ‘These two look very un-celebrity sweet together, with their body language suggesting like-minded thinking and ideals.
‘Most celeb couples look camera-conscious and brand-ready but these two look relaxed and genuinely low-key although not pretentiously avoiding being seen by ducking their heads or looking dour.
‘Their posture and their body movements are mirrored and seem to be nicely synchronised.
‘Their power/status signals also look well-balanced, with no one trying harder than the other.’
Judi added: ‘With their postural echo looking subconscious, they still show a desire to touch.
‘Harry’s hand is held out in an offer of a clasp but she seems to like to hold onto his finger in a rather cute way.’

Grammy winner Harry has been living his best chilled life since his tour concluded in summer, having caught up with famous pals such as James Corden and cycled around his home city.
He’s also had plenty of time to spend with his new lover, having moved on from ex-girlfriend Olivia Wilde after their split last year.
Neither Harry nor Taylor has confirmed they’re dating explicitly, but Taylor did open up last month about how she approaches relationships.
Speaking to The Face all about her theatre show, The Effect, and her attitude to romance, she replayed her personal pep-talk.
Taylor said: ‘You know what, Taylor, this is a new place. You’re not in America, not in Canada. You have to open up and allow people to know you. You’re going to be in a community of people that are going to be there for you.

‘You have to allow them to know you. If something happens, something happens, that’s life.’
The Escape Room star continued: ‘You are going to be hurt – that’s the tax. The tax on a real relationship is the reality that you will get hurt, you will [have] grief, something will be lost at some point and that’s ok. It’s worth it.’
Reflecting on this mindset, she added: ‘It’s something that I’m having to remind myself a lot.’
Not much is known about Taylor’s romantic history, although there were once rumours of her dating co-star Timothée Chalamet, which were never proven.
As for Harry, his relationship with Olivia, 39, was his longest, having dated the Don’t Worry Darling director for almost two years.

But, they weren’t built to last, with an insider telling People at the time of their split: ‘He’s still touring and is now going abroad. She is focusing on her kids and her work in LA. It’s a very amicable decision.’
‘They’re still very close friends,’ the source added.
Harry’s ex-girlfriends also include Taylor Swift and Kendall Jenner.
