"Isolated" And "Tensed": Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Kept Aloof During Remembrance Concert, Expert States

November 12, 2019 15:48

Meghan and Harry's body language when they are in public can tell a lot about how they are feeling.

During the recent Remembrance Day event, Meghan Markle was isolated, in a way, from Kate Middleton, Duchess Camilla, and Queen Elizbeth, all of whom stood together on the balcony.

Meghan, on the other hand, stood next to Sophie, Countess of Wessex and Princess Anne's husband Sir Timothy Laurence on a different balcony.

While this may seem like a slight against the Duchess of Sussex, it could simply be due to the "pecking order" of the royal family. In other words, it made sense for the Queen and future Queens to stand together based on seniority.

Isolating the Sussexes

Considering how open Harry and Meghan got recently about their struggles, some royal fans wonder if this will cause them to be pariahs in the monarchy.

There were also concerns about whether Harry and William would display brotherly connection if they were in public together since the Duke of Sussex basically confirmed they didn't always see eye to eye.

The recent Remembrance Day Concert, where the Cambridges, Sussexes and other royal family members were in attendance, was an interesting way to see how they all interacted with each other. And according to one body language expert, the royals' behavior was very telling.

Body language expert Judi James told the UK Express that Harry and William stayed separate during the concert.

James went on to add that the Duke of Sussex "appeared tense" throughout the concert but she opined that this could have been due to his own experiences with the armed forces.

Meghan smiled throughout, while Harry’s rather more distant-looking gaze and his reflective facial expression was probably down to the memories of his own experiences in the armed forces.

As for the Cambridges, the body language expert said that there were some hints of warmth and affection between William and Kate as the Duke was "especially attentive" with a "loving smile on his face."

Moving to the US

Based on what Harry and Meghan have said about being intensely scrutinized in the UK, there have been reports that the couple may choose to relocate to the US.

Royal correspondent Victoria Arbiter, however, said that if this happened, the two might have to give up their titles and "renounce royal privileges."

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been very open about some of their private struggles which isn't typical of the royals in general. But while royal followers are worried about the reactions of the family, it does seem like Harry and Meghan continue to forge ahead despite it all.
