Prince Andrew’s ‘swaying’ body language ‘showed suspect signs’ as ‘nobody spoke’ to Duke

1563

PRINCE ANDREW’s body language at Prince Philip’s funeral has been analysed by an expert, who explained why the Duke of York appeared like a “sad character”.

Dr Maher told viewers: “Most notable with Andrew was, as they were walking along, he was swaying from side to side.

“His body doesn’t go straight ahead, it goes side to side.

“I think that his body is showing the signs of a lifetime of indulgence.

“His stomach is swollen underneath his ribs.”

She continued: “It lifts his chest up so we had a lot of the white of his shirt showing.

“His arms are out at the side and he’s swaying from side to side.

“Nobody else spoke to him, he just stood behind his daughter.

“I thought he was a sad character.”

The Duke of York had caused a stir before the funeral after it emerged that he had requested to wear an Admiral uniform.

Although he did have a naval career, Andrew did not reach the rank of Admiral by the end of it.

Additionally, the royal had stepped down from public life in November 2019 following the Jeffrey Epstein scandal.

In the end, the Palace announced that no military uniforms would be worn at the ceremony.

After the death of his father was announced on April 9, the Duke spoke to reporters about the loss.

He shared that the Queen was “feeling it, I think, probably more than everybody else”, calling her “incredibly stoic”.

The Duke told Sky News: “She described it as having left a huge void in her life.

“But we – the family, the ones that are closer – are rallying round to make sure that we’re there to support her, and I know there is a huge amount of support not just for her but for everybody as we go through this enormous change.”
