Body language expert Judi James offers insights to The Sun, focusing on the subtle yet powerful cues within the photo. She notes Prince William's rare display of childlike joy and intimacy, contrasting with Princess Kate's relaxed posture as she leans against her husband with a smile.

"William holds Kate around the hips to make her look like some precious prize or gift that he wants to hold onto, although there is also a sexier hint here from what is quite an intimate touch for a royal couple."

And further: "This symmetry shows authentic happiness and, with her gleam of excitement in her eye expression matching William’s, they look like a couple that see their royal marriage as a very great adventure to embark on together."
