‘Additional strain’ Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were ‘anxious’ in their most recent appearance, according to an expert.
MEGHAN MARKLE and Prince Harry appeared “nervous” and “under pressure” in their first public appearance on Thursday, according to a body language expert.
Prince Harry, 37, and Meghan Markle, 40, returned to the public eye by paying their respects at a 9/11 monument in New York. At One World Trade Center’s observatory, the Sussexes were joined by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York State Governor Kathy Hochul.
It was the couple’s first public appearance since the birth of Lilibet, their second child, in June.
However, according to one body language expert, the Sussexes appeared to be under “pressure” during their vacation to New York.
“The couple’s arrival seemed sufficiently sad to fit the sombre venue, but there were also some indicators that the baby-break had imposed some added pressure for the US power couple’s first time back in the spotlight,” Judi James told the Mirror.
“Harry was particularly nervous, patting his wife’s back as she came into the theater in a little guiding gesture but then making repeated checking touches on his jacket and apparel, implying some inner nervousness.
“Meghan took the lead and walked quickly, however their low-held wave and smile to the crowd was more in keeping with their distinctive look.”
Ms James, on the other hand, stated that the couple’s lack of passion for each other could be due to the event’s “sombre” tone.
“The couple here wore little in the way of PDAs, perhaps because they believed the occasion required a more professional look,” she remarked.
“Harry placed an arm over his wife’s back as they posed for photos inside the venue, but their smiles were ‘Lightning’ smiles, produced swiftly and firmly for the camera before disappearing rapidly again,” the body language expert noted.
“Harry looked to eye-check Meghan a few times and converse with her, but her lack of response or returned stare suggested she might be feeling under pressure at this very high-profile return to public life as they posed.”
Ms Markle’s journey to New York with the Sussexes is thought to be her first since her baby shower in 2019.
It was stated that the couple’s fancy baby shower was hosted in preparation of the birth of their first child, Archie. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
