Queen and Meghan giggled together like teenagers, says body language expert
The duchess was nervous and sought approval from the monarch.
The Duchess of Sussex showed her nerves on her first joint engagement with the Queen, but there was genuine warmth between the monarch and Meghan, a body language expert said.
Judi James said the head of state and the former Suits star giggled together like teenagers at one point as they enjoyed their day out in Cheshire.
“But when she did glance at her, it was with a beaming smile and approval.”
“Meghan was still being very careful. She sat with her legs crossed at the ankles and was clearly seeking approval.”
Ms James suggested: “Meghan did so many self-checking gestures of anxiety which is interesting in such a confident woman.
“She walked up the aisle on her own without batting an eyelid.”
“I think her outfit did her no favours. The caped shoulders restricted her arms and she lost some of her more natural movements.”
“Perhaps Meghan did bring a little bit more of that out in her.
Ms James said the Queen was similarly beaming with smiles when she carried out her first joint engagement with the Duchess of Cambridge.
