Meghan's telling gesture

Over time many royal fans may have noticed that the Duchess of Sussex often adopts a particular fascinating gesture when she's out in public.

Body language expert Judi James claims that Meghan Markle’s "playful" handclasp is actually an indication of how amazed she is about the turn her life has taken. Judi adds that gesture denotes how "awed and thrilled" the Duchess is since becoming a part of the royal family.

Body language: Meghan vs Kate

Body language expert Blanca Cobb says Meghan Markle’s go-to-pose when she is out at public events is purposeful. During most public appearances, the Duchess of Sussex has been spotted in a poised position with her hands clasped across her ribs, and elbows out.

Meanwhile her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton has a similar fascinating gesture she adopts. However, the Duchess of Cambridge instead has her hands usually a little lower than Meghan.

The expert suggested that Meghan may have worked with a body language expert to achieve this Duchess-ready silhouette. She explained:

If you look at it, it's a polished look. Her hands aren't flapping in the wind, she's holding her hands together. A lot of people will use a body language coach to help them send off an image because they want to be perceived in a certain way.

It was reported that Meghan took six months of "Duchess lessons" with the help of Samantha Cohen the Queen's senior aide.

Another significant habit

Another body language expert noticed that Meghan uses Princess Diana's gesture to win the public's trust.

Judi James pointed out that the Duchess is using a ‘baby wave’ body language gesture, to win the people over. She claimed that it could have a great effect on her popularity.

We can't wait to see more of Meghan’s personality as a royal, but it's safe to say her style will differ from Kate's.
