Prince William appeared stressed as Kate celebrated, says body language expert

Prince William seemed "stressed" while his "confident" wife Kate Middleton didn't shy away from celebrating with "triumph and success" at a Six Nations rugby match.

This was the opinion of a royal body language expert who analysed the future King and Queen's moves as they cheered for "different teams" at the Wales and England game in Cardiff on Saturday.

Body language expert Darren Stanton, speaking on behalf of Betfair Bingo, said Kate was showing "massive levels of self-assurance" at the event – something that appeared to make William feel "anxious and stressed".

“There were also some fantastic shots of Kate sharing a joke with some of the guests, where she displayed genuine emotions of joy," said body language expert Stanton.

"She was clearly thrilled to be at the event.

"At one point during the game, William had his tongue sticking out, as Kate looked quite resolute and steely eyed. This is an indicator that they may well have been supporting different teams."

He went on to describe William's "anxiety".

"William’s expression is one of anticipation and stress at potentially not seeing his team win," he added. "Whereas Kate’s is one of triumph and success.

"There were some great facial expressions and body language being exuded from the pair on the day."

Meanwhile, there is still speculation as to whether Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will attend King Charles' coronation in May following reported troubles among the princes and their dad.

The Daily Star reported Harry and Meghan could be met with an "Arctic reception" if they do indeed attend.

Following allegations made by the Duke in his tell-air memoir Spare, royal commentator Daniela Elser believes the couple are in for a difficult time, and not just from the Royal Family but Brits as well.

Speaking in her column, she wrote: “Harry might be the King’s son and fifth in line to the throne but now, having turned his litany of family grievances into a highly lucrative one-man cottage industry, on coronation day he looks set to play much the same role as one of Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie’s artfully perched chapeaus – ornamental and nothing more.

“Now, with this latest news, the Duke faces only an arctic reception by his family, an arctic reception by Fleet Street and an arctic reception by a British people about as keen on he and Meghan as tray of flaccid vegan sausage rolls, but the Sussexes will now have to watch on as Camilla’s family steal the limelight, a nation’s hearts and millions if not billions of clicks and likes.

“Never will Aitch’s self-inflicted exile to the very outer limits of the royal orbit more keenly come into focus than when all those teenagers gather around the women they call ‘GaGa’, trying not to drop a hand sewn canopy, while the Duke and Duchess are stuck in a pew staring at the back of 15-year-old James, Viscount Severn’s head.”
