Judi James, a body language expert decoded the couple’s gestures and body language during the 30-second preview clip. She claimed a “confident” Meghan Markle supported a “more vulnerable Harry” stressing their roles seem to have changed since they left the UK to live in the US.
Teasers of the CBS interview were released this week, but viewers will have to wait a while longer for hotly anticipated chat to air on Monday, March 8, in the UK.
Ahead of the upcoming interview, sources have warned the Royal Family “to hide behind the sofa” with Harry and Meghan set to talk about Megxit.
Ms James pointed out viewers should expect to see a different power stance between the pair with Meghan playing the role of a protector.
The expert added: “I think when Meghan came to the UK, Harry very much saw himself in the role of overly protective husband that knew that all hell was going to break lose in terms of press and public interest, and was desperate to protect her – albeit that she presented herself as a very confident woman.

“But I think the tide has completely changed looking at the Oprah Winfrey clip.”
Ms James also told the Mirror: “Now she seems to have taken a much more vulnerable Harry back to the US with her and she seems to be more in the role of rescuer and protector with him.”
Referring to part of the clip where the couple hold hands, she explained: “This hand gesture that you can see, he’s got his hand on the chair and she’s placed her hand on top.
“That’s almost a maternal looking gesture, it’s though it’s being used for reassurance and to let him feed off her confidence.

“Clearly she’s friends with Oprah, she’s used to being in front of the cameras she’s an actress, but to Harry this is a whole new world that he’s being judged by and being asked to perform.”
She added the Duchess seemed to have a “super self-controlled, confident image going on here” while The Duke was “much less self-assured.”
The Duchess of Sussex is expected to be the leading character of the show and is set to explain “how she is handling life under intense public pressure”.
However, Ms James claimed Prince Harry could “rip his soul out in front of the camera and tell us about everything.”
Meghan was described by the body language expert to be “confident”
The controversial two-hour tell-all sit-down chat will be shown on ITV at 9pm on Monday, March 8, after the broadcaster acquired the rights to the programme.
The deal is reported to have cost ITV around £1 million.
Questions have been raised about the appropriateness of Harry and Meghan’s interview, which chat show queen Winfrey has promised will be “shocking” with “nothing off-limits”.
