- Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry are in the Netherlands
- Meghan and Harry appeared on stage at Invictus Games
- This is what the couple's body language reveals
Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan spent their Easter weekend at the Invictus Games in the Netherlands, exuberant and totally in love. As is so often the case on special occasions, the two royals' interactions were also being particularly observed— this is what their body language during their visit to Holland revealed!
Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry show their love
Body language expert Judi James told the Daily Mail how many different emotions Meghan and especially Harry carried. At the event, which Harry cares about more than any other, they finally showed up together in Europe for the first time since they left the royal family. Harry and Meghan presented themselves more in love than ever, with Meghan even showing "a gesture of submission" according to James.
While the two held hands, Harry clasped his wife's from above— a sign that he wanted to protect and guide Meghan. "Meghan’s hand is cupped upward in a gesture of submission and the way Harry has his other hand stuffed into his trouser pocket suggests a desire to look casual and confident," James shared.
Harry appeared to convey sadness at Invictus Games
It's touching to see Harry showing his connection to the Invictus Games and his wife, Duchess Meghan, through emotion. Even at the opening ceremony, James could see some important messages in the prince's posture. However, one gesture is clear to everyone: the kiss that Harry and Meghan gave on stage clearly showed their love. This was preceded by a confession of love from the Duchess. But James acknowledged the important emotions Harry's body language reveals, especially after the kiss.
The prince wasn't as cool as we usually know him to be following that moment, as James explained to The Mirror. "Instead, he turns his reddened face to the side, wiping the side of his nose with his knuckles in what looks like a partial cut-off to shield his facial expression," she revealed. "His eyes have the saddest expression as his tongue pokes out from the corner of his mouth and he looks down to suggest tearfulness."
The body language expert sees an explanation for these strong emotions— the fact that the Invictus Games have taken place again for the first time since the pandemic began, and Meghan's kind words beforehand. There's also Harry's secret visit to his family in Great Britain, where he and Meghan met with not only the queen, but also his father Prince Charles.
