Prince Harry acted ‘like a rock star’ at New York concert, body language expert claims


PRINCE HARRY was acting “like a rock star” during a recent appearance at a concert, according to a body language expert.

Harry, 37, and his wife Meghan Markle, 40, made the on-stage appearance at the Global Citizen Live festival on Saturday during their three day tour of New York City. Body language expert Judi James told the MailOnline: “Prince Harry was trying to rev the crowd with some warm-up man-style gestures, like cupping his ear to pretend he couldn’t hear their agreements and yelling out ‘New York Citaaaaay…’ like a bit of a rock star.”

Attendees, which the Duke suggested topped 60,000, cheered Harry and Meghan as they called on people to do what is necessary to “end this pandemic”.

While Ms James claimed the 37-year-old had behaved like a “rock star” she also suggested the Duchess played the lead role.

“In performance terms it was Harry who seemed to recognise his wife as lead star, gazing at her with eyes slightly narrowed to show pride but also performing some anxiety rituals like clothing and finger-fiddling as he watched her more powerful speech,” she said.

The body language expert went on to claim: “After their more corporate-looking appearances so far in New York, this on-stage body language saw Meghan and Harry revert to their more familiar-looking PDAs and signals of affection.

“Although these romantic rituals were driven more by the demanding crowd than instigated by the couple themselves.

“But once Harry had used the ‘My wife and I’ line and thrown the first loving gaze in Meghan’s direction, it was clear from the cheers and screams of approval from the crowd that they wanted more of the couple’s romantic back-story.”

The Global Citizen 24h Live festival was rounded out by guest musicians including Coldplay and American singer Billie Eilish.

During their three-day tour of New York, Harry and Meghan made their first public appearance since the birth of their second child in June.

Later on in their trip, the Sussexes held a meeting with the United Nations’ Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed.

The pair were also spotted enjoying a night out as they let their hair-down in the Big Apple.
