Camilla Parker Bowles joined Prince Charles and the other members of the royal family at the NATO summit this week.

The Duchess of Cornwall was photographed at the end of the receiving line of top royals, which suggests that she has been given more royal duties as the future queen.

While speaking with Express, body language expert Judi James said that Camilla looked like a woman stepping into a more regal role since her husband, Prince Charles is also preparing to take over the British monarchy.

“However, Camilla’s body language signals still suggest a woman ill-at-ease with the role and the status and this footage shows her looking characteristically awkward and hesitant rather than calmly regal,” she said.

Even though Camilla has been an official member of the royal family since 2005, James said that she still seems uncomfortable with the formalities of her royal role.

After shaking hands with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Camilla pushed her hands down to her sides and behind her legs, which made her look like a shy child.

“She shuffles her feet rather than engaging in chat and after her next shake, she goes from a steeping gesture to a clasp before looking away down the line. Camilla even performs the dreaded hand-wipe gesture twice hereafter shaking hands. Rubbing your hands together and wiping them together after a handshake implies that either your guest or you have sweaty hands, or that you are rejecting the shake,” James explained.

The body language expert also said that Camilla’s signals since marrying Prince Charles suggest that even though she’ll adopt her role as queen to make her husband happy, she wouldn’t relish or enjoy the role. The Duchess of Cornwall has always looked different and nervous at royal events, and it is unlikely that this will change or diminish when she becomes queen.
