Meghan Markle, 39, and Prince Harry, 36, took part in an online conversation with world-famous education activist Malala to mark the International Day of the Girl. A body language expert has analysed the video of Meghan and Harry speaking to Malala and claimed the Duchess seems to adopt “some deference” which sees her channel Kate, Duchess of Cambridge’s default stance.
Body language analyst and author Judi James told Express.co.uk: “Meghan’s body language in this interview appears to show some deference to the profound personal experience and charisma of Malala.
“Almost mimicking the more humble, self-diminished pose of Kate here, Meghan inches her torso away from Harry at the start, to sit with her body scrunched and her hands clasped between her own legs.”
According to Judi, Meghan’s hand gestures suggest she is “in awe” of Malala.
The expert said: “Every time she does bring her hands out to gesticulate she pops them back between her legs in ‘resting’ mode and this pose does suggest she is somewhat in awe of Malala.”
Judi claimed Meghan and Harry’s stance during the conversation emphasises there wish to reflect their “family bond.”
She said: “There have been rumours that Harry might be set to return to the UK and many of Meghan’s poses and gestures do seem to be intended to emphasise their relationship and their bonding as a family.
“As Harry speaks Meghan often moves her hand clasp close to his legs and her finger clasp seems to be making a big feature of her wedding ring.”
According to Judi, Meghan demonstrates “team-thinking” when she nods in response to Malala’s questions to Harry.
Judi said: “When Malala addresses a question to Harry, Meghan nods too, suggesting team thinking.
“When Meghan gushes about the ‘Good family time’ they’re having during lock-down she gazes adoringly at Harry, although he doesn’t meet her gaze and looks down instead.”
The body language expert claims that Harry’s “fidgeting” body language starkly contrasts with the “relaxed” stance of his wife.
Judi said: “While Meghan looks elegant and relaxed here, Harry’s now-signature rituals of fidgeting and finger and spine-flexing suggest he’s impatient to get out on the road and throw himself into his causes more actively in a bid to make a change.

“He sits forward with his legs splayed and his gestures become high and expansive as he makes his points.”
According to Judi, Harry seems to want to “steer” some of what Meghan says.
The expert added: “Like their podcast at the weekend, Harry also sounds keen to steer some of Meghan’s verbal messages.”
At the weekend Meghan and Harry were guests on Teenage Therapy podcast in which they discussed their mental health.
According to Judi, during the podcast, Harry seemed to wish to steer the conversation away from Meghan’s own experience and back to that of the teenage hosts.
She said: “When she spoke about her own trolling experiences during their podcast Harry seemed to come in to curve it back onto the teenagers they were addressing to ensure it suggested empathy rather than a bid for sympathy.
“And here, after Meghan says it has been ‘just fantastic’ in lockdown, despite initially joining in with the expressions of pleasure about spending more time with Archie, Harry is the one who very emphatically points out that ‘We have been working really, really hard’.”
Judi claimed Harry’s apparent wish to curb Meghan’s comments suggests he is “developing more of a nose for PR.”
The expert said: “Following some of the criticism of some of Meghan’s podcast comments it does sound as though Harry is developing more of a nose for PR.
“His sense of growing awareness about his own life of entitlement and privilege is obvious in the way that he apologises for having taken his own top-drawer education for granted.”
