Princess Anne has always been regarded with so much respect. And some royal fans have been expressing their hope for Princess Royal to be the future head of the monarchy.

However, since Prince Charles is older, he will succeed Queen Elizabeth in the near future. While speaking with Express, body language expert Judi James said that it is understandable why the public thinks that Princess Anne will be better suited as the future Queen.

“Her body language signals with her brother Charles suggested – almost from birth – that she was the one who had been gifted all the confidence. While Charles looked dreamy, shy and hesitant Anne looked bubbling with happy self-esteem,” James said.

The body language expert also said that if she would choose between the royal siblings, she would go for Princess Anne because of her grit, spirit, and aura of strength. However, James doesn’t think that Princess Anne would make a great Queen for this generation.

“At present, the job is all about winning smiles and bright colored coats. It’s about suppressing your true feelings and being unendingly polite and charming and keeping out of controversy. Anne would have made a better Elizabeth I than an Elizabeth II: a warrior queen that you’d want to lead from the front in wartime,” she said.

Unfortunately, James doesn’t think that Princess Anne or Prince Charles displays the kind of body language signals that make them naturals for the top job. At the end of the day, she said that Princess Anne would struggle more than Prince Charles if she is Queen.

“Charles has managed to overcome some of his body language signals that imply self-pity and either diffidence or arrogance, and replace them with a very kindly-looking eye-wrinkling smile and chuckle that suggests warmth and affection. The thought of an ever-smiling, ever-chuckling Anne is almost inconceivable though,” she said.
