Kate has done too many ‘overkill rituals’ with Sussexes – body language expert

Kate Middleton has accepted that her relationship with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry won’t be “hugely warm”, a body language expert has claimed.

After a reported rift between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the rest of the Royal Family, the couple made a surprise appearance at a walkabout with Prince William and Kate.

The two couples met with mourners in Windsor, where Meghan was welcomed with gifts after William had reportedly organised the spontaneous plans by texting his estranged brother.

But, with the Queen’s funeral today (September 19), body language expert suggested that Kate’s behaviour during the walkabout hinted that a long-term improvement in the couples’ relationship is unlikely.

“I did love to watch Kate here, though, because the last time or one of the biggest times that we saw the bothers get together, which was at Philip’s funeral, it was very much Kate behind the scenes, she was choreographing, nudging them, getting them in the same place, both men looked reluctant," Judi told GB News.

“Here though, she kept very much out of the way. She came out of the car, she slammed the car door, she moved away quite quickly. It was William that actually extended his arm and invited Meghan to join in the conversation.

“I think Kate has done too many overkill rituals with Harry and in particular Meghan; the smiling on Christmas day, ‘we’re best friends’ at Wimbledon, I think now she’s probably accepted that there won’t be a hugely warm relationship there and is probably just being very professional.”

Despite this, Judi acknowledged that the impromptu reunion had been important for going some way to mending the alleged rift between the couples at a time of great sadness for the Royal Family.

“I would say what we’ve seen in terms of body language is a very important damage limitation exercise,” she suggested.

“This was a shock, seeing them emerging together, they’d travelled in the same car. But there were no… little glances, touches, whatever, to imply that this was anything other than what’s called an intentional display.

“The intention being; we are adults, William very much looking in a leadership role here.”

Harry is set to release his tell-all memoir later this year, and with the prince set to spill some “truths” about his former life as a royal, Judi suggested that the walkabout showed no signs that the brothers might repair their relationship.

“Absolutely and quite sadly – it might change – but [there were] no signs of huge unity,” she continued.

“I was thinking back the other day and I don’t actually remember when there were any, so this is probably as good as we could expect.

“I’m not expecting to see any huge making up between the two of them [William and Harry].”
