Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince Harry’s body language during the first time that they introduced their respective children to the world appear to be very different, according to an expert.

Judi James, a body language expert, told Express that Prince Charles looked extremely nervous when he first introduced Prince William to the entire world after Princess Diana gave birth to him in 1982.

“The concept of a hands-on royal dad was still novel to the point of unheard of at this time and everything about Charles here, from his sharp, immaculate suited-and-booted appearance to his anxiety rituals suggest he did assume that the new baby was only going to make the very slightest of dents in his normal lifestyle,” James said.

For the body language expert, Prince Charles made no attempt to look like a baby support team for two because he walked out of St. Mary’s Hospital’s Lindo Wing carrying Prince William with awkwardly splayed and clawed hands that made him look uncomfortable.

On the other hand, Princess Diana smiled proudly at Prince William and Prince Charles, but it was evident that the latter had fear in his eyes. Prince Charles’ slightly puckered brows also suggested bewilderment.

Decades later, Prince William stepped out of the same hospital with Kate Middleton after the birth of Prince George. According to James, the second in line to the throne looked at ease when he introduced his eldest son to the public.

“William’s splayed shoulders and wide grin made him look relaxed, proud and happy, and he adopted a much more ‘in charge’ role than Charles, placing a protective arm around his wife and pointing out the steps to her just in case she tripped and fell. William looked much more comfortable than his father displaying his emotions publicly, grinning broadly and waving to all the waiting fans and press,” James said.

And on Monday, Prince Harry was by himself when he talked to the press after Baby Sussex’s birth. James said that the first-time dad couldn’t contain his excitement which was made evident by the way he smiled and moved. At one point, it even appeared as though Prince Harry was skipping out of sheer happiness.
