Prince William and Kate Middleton had a markedly different approach to the general public than Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle as they greeted hundreds of people outside Windsor Castle who were mourning their loss. Queen Elizabeth II who died Thursday at the age of 96.
Body language expert Tonya Riemann told Fox News Digital exclusively that there was a “huge difference” between the couples, which started in the way they “closed together” and continued throughout the long walk as Harry lovingly held his wife’s hand while he-eye The Duke and Duchess of Wales They acted like “members of the royal family” with a distance between the spouses.
“People were saying, ‘Oh my God, you see how much love is between a couple [Harry and Meghan]But the other couple [William and Kate] They are members of the royal family. “They’re used to these things,” Rayman said.
the new “Fab Four” He was reunited after years of separation, but was not without some criticism as Prince William posted a video where he was criticized for his lack of equestrianism with his wife, while Harry was quick to be next to Meghan and open the car door as the group left. event together saturday.
Rayman noted that while Harry is clearly protective of Meghan, his penchant for tying his arm over his jacket has never been comfortable in the spotlight despite nearly four decades with royal status.
“He always does this, and it’s a bit of a relief to hold his arms and when we cross our arms across our bodies it helps us feel less vulnerable. When I see this, I don’t see any discomfort on Harry’s part, but said Rayman.”
“When you look at Kate, it’s all royal. It’s one. So, looking at Kate, you have to realize that’s kind of what I’ve prepared for. I don’t think there’s a question of who’s better at it. I think who was more comfortable that Be in that skin, that to me is Kate.”
Rayman also noted that Middleton’s facial expressions were more tender and charged with an instinctive “I don’t care about you,” as she insisted, “It’s the way I was born. Kate’s hug is kind of like there’s an invisible wall.”
On the other side of the coin, “Meghan hugs like, ‘Oh my God, we’re best friends.'” “Difference in something as simple as how close you are to a hug illustrates the difference in culture, how we feel about people and how we interact.”
“When it comes to holding hands, there is a difference between the two brothers. I think it indicates more of what William and Kate feel ‘appropriate’ and what Meghan and Harry feel comfortable with.”
Rayman commented that the differences were more evident than ever when Harry ran to open the car door for Meghan while William stood by while Kate handled the situation on her own. “You become comfortable with what you know and expect,” she said.
As they made their way into the crowds, “the difference was definitely evident when you come to Meghan” who was warm and welcoming, offering hugs and talking to members of the audience as if they were her family. At one point, it looked as if Meghan had promised to bring flowers to the Queen’s lounge, but an aide insisted Markle hand over the flowers and keep meeting people.
“While Kate may on some level feel the same way, she doesn’t show the same amount of feelings. It’s more ‘This is what’s right,’ ‘This is what I was raised to do,'” Rayman said. ‘When you look at Harry, it’s more Open but very uncomfortable. He’s always doing something that shows discomfort, whether that’s by closing his arms or whether he’s raising your hand and never in a rude way, but in a way that says I need some kind of barrier.”
“William is just totally royal And he has a “don’t get too close to me” personality. So I think Harry wants to be the one that gets close, but he can’t because of the way he was brought up. He’s trying, but you can always see there’s something stopping him and again, I don’t think that’s a conscious thing. I think he tries but he can’t. When you look at William, I think it’s more than “That’s the line we draw in the sand, and you can’t cross it.”
Despite the perceived tension, William and Kate know their “roles” and what is expected of them as senior members of the royal family.
“They know what they’re supposed to pretend,” Reimann insisted. “So they do it.” When asked about the incident in which the Prince of Wales forgot to help Kate in the waiting car, Rayman said, “William won’t open the door because he knows someone is opening the door for her. For Meghan and Harry, it’s more than that. For an affectionate moment. That’s a different kind of relationship. And this is also the relationship that you present to the audience.”
She added, “I didn’t get the impression based on their nonverbal cues that this was something they were intentionally doing to the public. I just felt based on their nonverbal cues that it was more about how they shared their relationship. And if you look at Harry’s face, you can see that difference. That’s something I’ve been watching it for years.
“Harry is more irritable and that’s the way he’s brought up. I think when you look at boys the reaction is different. So Charles could say, ‘My kids have the same breed, but it’s not like they have the same personality. When they talk about what’s appropriate, from They would probably say William is more appropriate. It’s just what they’ve been exposed to.”
