The rockstar and the awkward Prince: Harry seemed 'bashful' at summit while Meghan looked 'regal'
The body language expert pointed out that Meghan looked 'confident and resilient' while Harry 'was much more ill-at-ease'
MANCHESTER, ENGLAND: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are back in the land of UK for their three-day trip at the One Young World Summit, where the duchess delivered her first speech on Monday, September 5, after stepping down from the royal duties and said, "It is very nice to be back in the UK." A body language expert pointed out that Meghan looked "regal and elegant" while Harry "was riddled with signals of anxiety and awkwardness."
Body language expert Judi James said Meghan appeared a lot more comfortable than Harry during the summit, reported Express. She said, "Meghan managed to look delighted to be back in the UK tonight and even told her audience as much. Wearing a deep red outfit to signal a range of emotions from passion and love to confidence and resilience, she held Harry’s hand on the way to the stage and gave his back a couple of touches of loving reassurance as he greeted the hosts." The expert continued, "There was no hint in Meghan's body language of any anxiety or even subliminal resentment about being back in the UK." "Meghan arrived down the steps between the audience like a rock star, hand in hand with a more bashful looking Harry and giving sweet baby-waves to the fans on either side," The Sun quoted Judi as saying.
A peek into Meghan's speech
Meghan delivered the keynote address “to come together to confront the biggest challenges facing humanity.” She started with, as per Express, "As you'll likely hear many times this week, you'll hear all sorts of things: Some very heavy, some very uplifting, but the resounding spirit, I believe you'll hear, is that you are the future. But I would like to add to that, that you are also the present. You are the ones driving the positive and necessary change needed across the globe now in this very moment and for that, I'm so grateful to be in your company today." She further said, "It was several years ago in 2014 that I was first invited to be a counsellor at One Young World and, in many ways at the time, I was probably a lot like each of you: Young, ambitious, advocating for the things I deeply and profoundly believed in."
Meghan said, "My world view had expanded exponentially, seeing the global community through the eyes of my child and I would ask, what is this world he would come to adopt? And what can we do, what can I do to make it better? I'm thrilled that my husband is able to join me here this time...To be able to see and witness firsthand my respect for this organisation, this incredible organisation and all that it provides as well as accomplishes. One Young World had been an integral part of my life for so many years before I met him so to meet again here, on UK soil, with him by my side, make it all feel full circle."
