Kate Middleton’s body language shows huge changes in the Royal Family – ‘She’s grown’

2788

KATE MIDDLETON has grown over the years and a body language expert has said she “shines” but doesn’t “upstage” Prince William.

Kate Middleton has come into her own in recent years and it was made evident when she stepped out onto the red carpet for the James Bond premiere last year. Having been in the Royal Family for more than a decade, the Duchess of Cambridge now steps out on her own to attend events and make public appearances. But when she does join Prince William, body language expert Judi James says she is still “shines like a star” but without “upstaging” her husband.

She said: “The young woman who sashayed down a catwalk in a see-through dress and was often seen partying with her Prince with all the typical enthusiasm of a student at uni, was replaced by a woman with a pitch-perfect, storm-proof smile.

“[She] now manages to shine like a Hollywood star but without ever upstaging her husband or making the other royals appear dour and out-of-date.

“Kate’s current body language shows how much she has grown in both confidence and charisma but without once compromising William’s obvious desire to avoid rabid interest or to provide any soap-opera-style narrative,” Judi added.

Judi spoke about the change Kate has undergone from when she was first associated with the Royal Family to now.

Marrying into – and staying in – the British monarchy, as it turns out, is no easy feat.

Princess Diana and the Duchess of York divorced their husbands.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle decided to step back as senior royals.

Yet, with just under two decades in the public eye, Kate is still fiercly loved by the nation.

Judi spoke about this and said: “Royal wives who have burned too bright and too fiercely have also burned out too soon.

“Diana was a star in every sense but she eclipsed her husband and created an insatiable appetite from the fans.

“Meghan [Markle] and even Sarah Ferguson both brought passion to the role.

“But it’s a profile of calm and discretion with no drama or emotional reveals that seems to fit the role the best.

“It’s a difficult tightrope but Kate has walked it barely one sign of a wobble so far,” the expert remarked.

Another place Kate has excelled is in public speaking.

Judi continued: “It’s claimed Kate is a natural introvert who is uncomfortable with public speaking.

“This might have been visible in her first public speech where she appeared to have been over-coached and lacking in her natural personality.

“However she feels inside her externally projected persona now looks firm, capable and much more confident.”

And it seems the Queen recognises Kate’s work becasue in 2019 she bestowed the distinction of Dame Grand Cross of Royal Victorian Order (GCVO) to the Duchess.
