What do we know about it?

Looking at some older pictures, we can see that the sign is exclusive to formal events. It has never been picked up on when Harry was wearing a polo shirt.

He often places his hand differently. Some pictures feature Harry putting his hand or fingers inside his outerwear.

Self-protection

Of course, many recognized body language experts have thoroughly analyzed this strange hand sign. Some of them think it might be a self-protecting barrier. Harry tries to distance himself from other people, and he is likely to be uncomfortable when in public.

One of the experts, Traci Brown, concluded:

He’s covering his solar plexus area (the vital organs) and protecting it which just says he’s not quite comfortable in the situation.

Really, who would be comfortable when there are dozens of photographers around?

It’s only a habit!

Nevertheless, many believe that there is nothing to argue about. We all have some ticks or habits that we aren’t aware of. Some of us bite our lips, and many twirl their hair. But there’s no hidden meaning behind it.

Whether it’s nervousness or just a habit, Prince Harry looks stunning anyways!
