Kate Middleton and Prince William body language reveals THIS about their relationship
KATE MIDDLETON – now the Duchess of Cambridge – and Prince William rarely give the public a view into their very secretive relationship. The Prince and Kate gave a joint interview after their engagement in 2010. What does their body language tell us about the pair? Judi James reveals all.
Kate Middleton, 35, and Prince William, 35, have given very little about their relationship away since they met in 2001.
The pair has been married for six years – and now have two children, Prince George, four, and Princess Charlotte, two.
They have not given a great number of interviews together but after their engagement the pair gave a very rare joint video interview.
Now a body language expert has analysed the interview exclusively for Express.co.uk and revealed some of what lies behind the strength of this royal couple.
Kate Middleton Prince William relationship: Body language expert reveals this
Judi James, a body language expert, revealed the very supportive role the Duchess of Cambridge plays for her royal husband, who has been affected by a life marred with public intrusion.
The pair mirror one another during the interview, a sure sign of an emotional bond, and Kate even flicks her hair in a flirty manner on occasion – but what can their body language tells us about the deeper connection between the couple?
Throughout the interview, which took place ten years ago in 2010, Kate Middleton shows her love and support in an almost motherly fashion, in an interview scenario her fiancé finds uncomfortable, Judi claims.
Judi said: “Kate’s bolt-upright posture could have suggested anxiety and a keenness to please, but overall it is William displaying the anxiety signals here while Kate’s gesticulation suggests an underlying strength and confidence.”
There is an adult to child dynamic to the relationship, Judi revealed, in which it seems clear that Kate is the one in charge.
“There is one point when William talks about meeting her family where she raises her index finger upward in what looks like a small but powerful control gesture,” Judi claims.
“This finger then taps gently in a metronomic gesture that also looks like a quiet desire to keep that control.”
Kate fulfills the adult role in the relationship, Judi claims, while William is often in a “childlike mode”.
According to the body language expert, Kate’s motherly characteristics is one main reasons the pair work so well together.
Judi said: “Kate retains a much more adult demeanor and I believe that has been one of the great strengths of their relationship.
“In their recent appearance when Kate sat with William and Harry as they talked about their mother there was something very strong, maternal and supportive about her presence with Diana’s two boys.”
William and Kate sit quite far away from one another, for a couple who have just announced their engagement, but the formal seating arrangements does not stop the outpouring of loving communication between the pair.
“Despite the lack of touch between the two you can see the love written all over William’s facial expressions,” Judi said, “from the rather coyly suppressed smiles to the way his features soften every time he throws a glance at Kate.”
Judi claims to detect some conflict in the Prince’s emotions.
She said: “Lurking underneath is a man who finds it hard to share too much with a press he hasn’t always seen eye to eye with.”
It comes after the body language expert analysed Princess Diana and Prince Charles’ wedding video.
