For this event, Meghan chose a white sleeveless dress from designer Maggie Marilyn, complementing the image with pumps by famous brand Manolo Blahnik. Most of the time, the duchess kept her hands in her pockets, which was noted not only by the fans of the royal family, but also body language experts.

One of them, Judi James, shared her opinion on Meghan’s fashion habit. She explained:

The classic reason for this very common gesture is that it signals a subliminal desire to hide, especially when the hands are shoved deep into the pockets.

Judi also noted that other royals – Princes Charles, Harry, and even little George – also have this habit. At the same time, Meghan is the only female member of the British royal family who regularly holds her hands in her pockets.

The expert found another explanation for this Duchess' peculiarity, suggesting that:

It also helps get over the common problem most of us suffer from, which is not really knowing what to do with our hands when we know people are looking at us.

Holding a purse or clutch in one hand, Meghan puts the other in her pocket so as not to look awkward in the photos.

Earlier, body language experts argued that this indicates that the Duchess wants to spend less time in public. However, Judi James believes that Meghan’s choice of outfits is more connected with fashionable preferences than uncertainty or anxiety.

It is also a probable nod to her love of 50's styling.

Well, in any case, Meghan looks stunning in dresses with pockets. Who knows, maybe in the near future she will become a trendsetter?
