Kate Middleton and Prince William frequently carry out engagements together. During some of these, the royals have taken part in activities.
They have turned their hands to everything from cooking to gardening and sports.
When the couple are given challenges on joint engagements, it brings out a “playful” side to them.
Body language expert Judi James explained they are openly competitive with each other.
She said: “They have always been a hilariously and openly competitive couple, especially when they’re pitted against one another in any sport and they have always been the most relaxed and vivacious-looking when doing so.
“But recent poses seem to take that playfulness to a new level.
“With Kate what looks like helpless with laughter while a grinning and beaming William signals sharing and approval via some congruent signals of glee as he stands beside her.”
Competing against each other in challenges is something that seems to give them genuine happiness, Judi claimed.
She continued to say this has been highlighted as Kate looks more “relaxed” in recent outings.
“Kate’s body language has become so much more relaxed recently and she appears much less wary about being the centre of attention when she’s out with her husband,” Judi said.
“Her perfect smile is often swapped for the kind of open-mouthed, face-wrinkled laughter of what looks like genuine humour and delight and this is one of the best examples of that body language ritual.”
Prince William also looked more relaxed, the expert suggested.
This has allowed the “strong bond” of the royals to be more obvious to see.
She said: “William has often looked more serious and formal.
“But [during one outing] he was not only laughing with his wife, he also seems to be winding her up here too, and that sense of playfulness suggests very strong bonds.”
Kate and Prince William do not often show public affection when they are out together.
However, the expert commented on one engagement last year when Prince William seems to share a private moment with his wife.
“At one point he places one hand in front of his face to shield it from public view as he seems to whisper to her privately,” she stated.
“The way he claps her suggests more shared fun as he wears his widest grin to suggested total enjoyment of the moment.”
The Duke and Duchess have started to make public outings again in line with Government coronavirus guidance.
During the lockdown, they opted for virtual engagements using video link.
