    Prince Harry has been likened to a “sulky teenager” after trailers for two upcoming tell-all interviews went viral online.

    The Duke of Sussex has given two interviews – one to US-based talk show 60 Minutes, and the other to the UK's ITV.

    And it is the latter which has been ridiculed by experts.

    Filmed in the heart of California where Harry lives with his growing family, Harry: The Interview, sees the youngest prince delve into unprecedented detail on life growing up and stepping away from the Royal Family.

    Speaking to ITV News at Ten presenter Tom Bradby – who Harry has known personally for more than 20 years – the prince shares his personal story in his own words.

    The 90-minute special is set to be broadcast just two days before the launch of his autobiography Spare hits the shelves on 10 January.

    The in-depth interview is set to explore a range of subjects including his personal relationships, never-before-heard details surrounding the death of his mother, Diana, and a look ahead at his future after leaving the Royal Family with his wife Meghan Markle.

    In the 20-second preview clip, Harry told the ITV newsreader: “it never needed to be this way, the leaking and the planting, I want a family – not an institution.”

    “They feel that it’s somehow better to keep us as the villains. They’ve shown no willingness to reconcile.

    “I would like to get my father back. I would like to have my brother back,” he added.

    And it is the latter quote which has been analysed by body language expert Judi James.

    Speaking to The Sun, she claimed that he was trying to “reassure” himself with subtle body movements.

    She said: “When he talks about being made ‘the villain’ his brows raise in an expression of indignant innocence.

    “He says there is ‘no willingness to reconcile’ with a dismissive left shoulder shrug, some staccato blinks and head shakes, as though he’s given up trying.

    “His hands do perform a ritual that suggests a desire to self-calm and self-reassure though as he rubs his thumbs together and crosses them.”

    And when talking about getting his father and brother back, she said: “(He said the words) with challenge and some hint of anger rather than sadness and regret”.

    “His chin raises then drops with his expression landing in something resembling a sulk.

    “This does not look like a throwing out of the arms in a gesture of reconciliation, rather a determination for things to be done on his own terms.”
