Date July 17, 2018 11:18

It’s so nice to watch the royal family gather up at the Buckingham Palace balcony on special occasions - smiling people, magnificent garments, and festive mood. One of such recent appearances of the Windsors was commemorated to the 100th anniversary of Royal Air Force. Even Kate Middleton, who is on an official maternity leave, accompanied William on this day.

So, when both couples – Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and Duke and Duchess of Sussex – were together, experts on body language got a chance to compare behavior of both couples. And they did find differences!

First of all, expert Lisa Mitchell noted the distance that separated the spouses from each other. Kate Middleton and William moved, one can say, independently and confidently, there was plenty of space between them.

At the same time, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry kept very close, their bodies often touch.

One more observation was about their body and arm movements. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge didn’t hold hands either on the way to the location or during the ceremony, while Meghan leaned on her husband’s arm and turned her body towards him. In other words, Prince Harry almost constantly maintained contact with his wife.

There are few factors at play here, according to the experts.

First, how long the spouses have been married. The Cambridge couple’s marriage has lasted for more than 7 years, and they’ve known each other since 2004. Half a glance is enough for them to understand each other, so they don’t require constant tactile reassurance. They just know.

This is the main difference from Duke and Duchess of Sussex, whose family experience is only about two months. They can be still considered newlyweds, so we’ll attribute all the public displays of affections to their romantic period.

Second of all, public events experience – to control every little thing in the focus of cameras always directed at you. Since Kate and William have long been playing this game, they are quite comfortable and many movements are almost automatic.

As for Meghan Markle, she is only starting to grow into her newest role, and she had been hardly given any head start. It is fairly understandable that she is looking for support and protection from Prince Harry by holding his hand and keeping close to him. Fortunately, her husband is supportive and generous with his attention relieving the tension.

With that, Lisa Mitchell noted that it’s wrong to say that there is more or less affection in either couple’s relationship. The feelings and emotions take different forms. Besides, Prince William stands closer to the throne than his younger brother, so his and Kate’s behavior is usually more official and mannered.

But if you remember the Duke of Cambridge’s chuckle during a church service, you’ll know that they are people too.
