KATE, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William are future heads of the Royal Family but their latest royal engagement together reveals a power imbalance between the pair, a body language expert has claimed.
Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, 38, and Prince William, 38, delighted royal fans with a string of joint appearances in recent weeks as the couple returned to face-to-face engagements. On Thursday they stepped out at Sandringham to meet representatives from organisations due to benefit from a huge donation pledged by the couple’s Royal Foundation charity.
The Royal Foundation has created a £1.8million fund to support frontline workers and the nation’s mental health.
Kate looked striking as ever in a chic white dress while Prince William paired a white shirt with a pale blue linen blazer for the outdoor meeting.
While the Cambridges are a dynamic duo and play off one another during royal engagements, a body language analyst has revealed a slight power imbalance in their relationship.
Energy reader and body language expert Debbie Bolton analysed three photos from the Cambridges’ latest engagement and revealed William tended to be more dominant in social situations than Kate.

Ms Bolton told Express.co.uk: “In the image of Kate and William walking they are both striding confidently.
“Kate is full of confidence but a little nervous as her left hand is in front of her body as if she wants people to stay a little further back from her.
“William has seen someone that he knows by the look of friendly recognition.
“At the same time, he is unsure what is about to happen as something is different than what he was expecting.
“It is not something huge as his expression shows that he will be able to cope with it.”

According to Ms Bolton, a photograph of the couple sitting at the table with the four representatives is where William and Kate’s power dynamic is most obvious.
The energy reader said: “William is engaged with who is talking as he is leaning her direction.
“He also feels as if he is in his own power or in charge of the situation as he is taking up as much room as possible in the seat.”
According to Ms Bolton, Kate’s body language at the table reveals are more submissive and less empowered side to the Duchess.
She said: “Kate is sitting to one side of the chair and at least one foot is pointing towards the person speaking.
“She is interested in what is being said and appears to be concerned.
“She is not in her own power and she appears to still be a little out of place being there.”
Kate seems to relax and come into her own in the final image that shows her chatting to an ambulance paramedic.

The body language expert said: “Kate appears to be relaxed.
“She is sitting back in the chair listening to the Ambulance Personnel.
“She is also following his body language by leaning the same direction as him, meaning that she is engaged and enthralled with what he is saying.”
Ms Bolton added: “She is loving being in this conversation and would voluntarily stay having it for much longer than the time she is allotted.
“This conversation will have a personal and not just a professional interest for her.”
