Daily Express - - NEWS - JUDI JAMES Body lan­guage ex­pert

FOR a woman nor­mally full of con­fi­dence who walked down the aisle alone, Meghan ap­peared to be be­set with nerves on this first trip out with her grand­mother-in-law.

She ap­peared ten­ta­tively from the train be­hind the Queen and although care­fully mir­ror­ing her stance, her rather awk­ward ges­tic­u­la­tion and calm­ing self touch and check­ing rit­u­als hinted she was in awe of Harry’s granny and keen to make a good im­pres­sion. The Queen’s broad and very youth­ful­look­ing smile sug­gested gen­uine de­light at hav­ing Meghan at her side though.

She didn’t fuss about Meghan, but the glances she did throw her came with smiles of ap­proval.

Meghan’s body lan­guage sig­nals of anx­i­ety could also have an­other source.

Although the Queen clearly put her at ease, she was prob­a­bly miss­ing her hus­band.

Her role with him is often to pat, hug and touch in ges­tures of re­as­sur­ance.

With­out him, she was clearly glad of the Queen’s sup­port.

The con­ver­sa­tion be­tween them sounded nat­u­ral, sug­gest­ing a grow­ing friend­ship as well as a fam­ily re­la­tion­ship.
