An expert examined Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton's body language during the Commonwealth service.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced in January that they were stepping back from their royal duties. Shortly after their bombshell announcement, they fled to Canada. However, they returned last week to carry out their last royal engagements. On Monday, Prince Harry and Markle joined the royal family for the Commonwealth service.

According to body language expert Bianca Cobb, the duke looked “a little uneasy” while his wife was more relaxed and confident.

“Harry was holding his hands together as he walked in. That’s letting you know that he was feeling a little uneasy,” Cobb said of Prince Harry in an interview with Us Weekly.

“As they were walking and being shown to their seats, Meghan [Markle] looked very relaxed with a genuine smile. The way she’s walking was one of confidence. She was taking nice strides.”

Meanwhile, Cobb also commented on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s actions on the same outing. She noticed that Prince William and Middleton had different interactions with the Sussexes compared to the other royal guests like Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex.

“When you compare Harry and Meghan’s interaction with William and Kate to their interactions with the other people around them, it gives you a sense of, why would it be different and I think a natural conclusion would be, something is up,” Cobb added.

“Kate had zero acknowledgement when taking her seat near Harry and Meghan.”

Meanwhile, Prince William and Middleton were accused of snubbing Prince Harry and Markle. The royal fans felt that the future king and queen made the situation worse by not being cordial to the Sussexes. A source said earlier that Queen Elizabeth II was hoping Prince William and Prince Harry would put on a united front in their joint engagement.

Apparently, for some, the Duke of Cambridge failed to do so by ignoring Prince Harry and Markle. However, some insisted that the second in line to the throne subtly acknowledged them and it was OK because they were in a formal engagement.
