‘No signs of relaxed engagement or even affection here’
According to the Daily Mail, body language expert Judi James asserted, “This is a phenomenal and unexpected scene that displays some natural caution and awkwardness in the body language, although as a statement of intent it seems choreographed as something of a loving tribute the Queen and in some ways the new King, who took what was maybe the first step in speaking of his love for Harry and Meghan in his recent speech.”
Describing the overall tone of the meeting, Judi added, “There’s no signs of relaxed engagement or even affection here but the fact they are lining up together and communicating again is impressive in itself.” Judi further stated, “It’s an adult approach from the new Prince of Wales and it could have broken a lot of ice in terms of their body language at the funeral and beyond.”
‘It's such an extraordinary historical moment’
According to People magazine, a source spilled the beans on the latest reunion of the fab four. A royal source said for William, it was “an important show of unity at an incredibly difficult time for the family.” Another insider added that security was not expecting both couples at the walkabout. The foursome was papped chatting and pointing at different tributes as the crowd waved at them.
A palace insider spilled the beans to the magazine, “It's such an extraordinary historical moment and also a deeply personal one for the family that you'd hope and think that all members of the family would unite and support [the King] especially” adding, “And perhaps some of those wounds can be healed in the process."
