As it turns out, Meghan is often seen mirroring her sister-in-law. Subconsciously, she copies the manners of the mother-of-three, opts for similar outfit choices, and mimics body language. According to body expert Judi James, this might be an attempt to fit in the royal family:

Meghan's mirroring of Kate currently involves wardrobe and body language mimicry and this reflects a degree of submission to show a desire for rapport and team acceptance.

But this might also indicate the start of a close friendship. When a person is acting like another, it creates empathy and rapport. Then, it might lead to more strongly bonded displays of friendship like touch or shared laughter. The expert added:

By also mirroring Kate's elegant two-handed clutch bag pose this could form a trio of body language techniques known as mirror - pace - lead. This is where you mirror the other person to create rapport and empathy before 'leading' them into more strongly bonded displays of shared laughter or touch.

No matter what Kate and Meghan are definitely on good terms. Besides, there's one point that everybody agrees on: both royal ladies are absolutely stunning!

Harry and William are lucky men to have such beautiful and wonderful wives!
