‘PDA-free zone’: Despite personal turmoil, the Queen’s ‘love of protocol’ is evident.

Since her accession to the throne in 1952, Queen Elizabeth II has been a pillar of strength, steadfast and unflappable.

From her coronation to the present day, a body language expert studied the British monarch’s nonverbal communication and social presence.

Judi James spoke exclusively to This website about the Queen’s changing body language and how she has maintained her authority while revealing details about her personal life.

“The Queen needed to project power, status, and authority at a time when women held few high-ranking or leadership roles,” Judi explained.

Because the previous four British monarchs were all men, the young Elizabeth II had to stand out when she was “surrounded by alpha males who might have seen her as weak and passive.”

“By using body language that was distinctly different from the people around her, she adopted her own, stand-out charisma,” Judi explained.

“Her coronation balcony appearance perfectly exemplifies her determination.”

The new queen appeared to be “alone in a crowd” despite the fact that she was surrounded by people.

“She looks straight ahead, displaying a sense of focus and regal difference as the others around her appeared distracted.”

“She looks utterly independent, and her children and husband stand to one side while she shows the world her mettle in one poised appearance.”

She established an independent persona and reputation from the beginning of her reign, which she has maintained to the present day.

She has given the British public “glimpses” into her life as a wife and mother on occasion, but her “love of protocol” has always been “obvious.”

“Charles tried some verbal and nonverbal PDAs with his mother, like this hand kiss and his references to her as’mummy,’ but he was often rewarded with a look of exasperation,” Judi said.

When Prince Charles kissed his mother’s hand at a polo match, the Queen allowed herself a “more delighted-looking smile,” though this was likely for the benefit of her son, as she preferred a “PDA-free zone.”

The Queen met with influential people and other world leaders frequently, always exuding “the charismatic traits of power, status, and dignity” while also being a “good host.”

Judi suggested that she had cultivated a “formidable” energy.
