Meghan Markle’s telling gesture was a ‘show of support for Kate and William’

Meghan Markle made a very deliberate and telling gesture to Prince William and Kate when she and Prince Harry joined them to meets crowds at Windsor Castle, says a body language expert.

The four arrived at the castle on Saturday to greet well-wishers who lined the streets to pay respect and lay flowers for Her Majesty the Queen following her death on September 8, aged 96.

While Meghan was sure to support her husband during the Windsor walkabout by holding his hand and touching his back, she is said to have also conveyed signs of compassion towards William and Kate.

The Sun's body language expert Judi James has revealed that Meghan's supportive gestures weren't just for Harry.

"Meghan and Harry are holding hands as usual and Meghan’s hand clasp and the touches on Harry’s back suggest she is being supportive," she told the Sun.

"Her support might not just be for her husband though.

"When she turns her head in William and Kate’s direction here, and to William in particular, her facial expression suggests a display of sympathy for her brother-in-law as well as her husband."

The expert revealed that the four had put their differences aside for the tragic event, with reports that King Charles asked the brothers to reunite in grief for the sake of their grandmother.

As the brothers were walking side by side, it seemed as though they had a strong bond – suggesting their reported feud had perhaps diminished.

The body language expert said: "This is a phenomenal display of unity between William and Harry. As an intentional gesture, it implies unity and some bonding prompted by mutual grief.

"Arriving and leaving together signals proximity and shared conversations and although there are no overkill displays of hugging or touch, these do look like baby steps that build on Charles’s declaration of love for his youngest son and his wife.

"It’s comforting to see Meghan's supportive touches on the back and partial hugs for a clearly upset Harry and the conversations between the two brothers.

"The most telling body language though is the intense mirroring rituals between William and Harry.

"Their poses and gestures are often identical, hinting and strong subliminal bonds that exist despite all the rifts."
