Kate is ‘confident and compelling’ in boardroom despite ‘detached’ lifestyle – claims


Kate, Princess of Wales, was in the City of London for a meeting with business people about her Early Childhood project.

According to a body language expert, the royal looked comfortable in the boardroom.

“Amazingly for someone who has led a rather detached royal lifestyle, Kate looks almost totally at home in this boardroom setting, surrounded by some of the biggest names in the City,” she said.

“Presenting or making a speech from a lectern to a sea of CEOs around a boardroom table is not for the faint-hearted and Kate had two options.

“Either she could illustrate the contrast in culture and experience by self-diminishing and over-smiling in an ingratiating display, or she could pack on the signals of control and confidence and position herself as one of them.”

Judi went on to claim that Kate did the latter – appearing to be confident and comfortable in the boardroom.

She said: “With only a couple of minor tells Kate seems to have opted for the status and confidence look here, posing among the big hitters as though fully and happily qualified to press her case.

“Her arrival seems to involve quite a wide, purposeful stride and business-like smile and her body language at the lectern looks compelling and full of confidence in her message.

“There is some very direct and engaging eye contact with her audience and even a widening of her lower lip as she speaks to suggest she is giving her words some extra emphasis.”

Judi continued: “She even sits in among the CEOs for the group photo looking rather like the boss of all of them but with one small giveaway of a more modest approach.

“If she were going the full Alan Sugar here she would have performed a territorial splay gesture, resting her elbows on the arms of the chair to announce her authority.

“But instead she keeps her elbows down, suggesting she’s not keen to override the authority of the others posing with her.”

Kate opted for a professional look as she donned a white blazer and slim-fitting, black trousers.

The Princess’ jacket was by iconic British designer Alexander McQueen, costing a whopping £1,490.

The garment was described as “light ivory” by the brand, which is different from Kate’s other white blazers.

The royal already owns the exact same jacket, but in light pink, which she donned for a public engagement last year.

She also has a white tailored blazer from Alexander McQueen, which she first wore during the March 2022 Caribbean tour.

She donned a plain, cream t-shirt underneath her jacket and accessorised with a black, crocodile-print belt.

Royal fans commented on her outfit, with Instagram user @marchionessofconfessions writing: “A blazer is the perfect definition of a business meeting. Even so, I find it somewhat ‘strange’ (as she is very used to making these types of choices) that she has bought a new blazer in cream when she already has the same one but in white. Technically it would have worked just as well.”

User @limonelemons said: “Catherine can have as many blazers as she wants and she always looks amazing in them.”

Royal fan @sarah_o_kay added: “The well-tailored coat, the blowout, the skinny trousers and pumps! This is her style, she looks comfortable and confident and she looks good in it.”
