Meghan takes lead as Harry awkward at UN speech, claims body language expert

Prince Harry's body language "lacked the confidence" of his wife, Meghan Markle, as she "takes lead" when accompanying him to the United Nations, an expert claimed.

According to a body language guru, the Duchess of Sussex had "confidence levels oozing" while "Harry's body language lacks the same level of confidence".

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex walked hand in hand as Meghan, 40, accompanied her husband Prince Harry, 37, to the United Nations in New York City yesterday (Monday, July 18).

"Meghan looks New York-smart here, from her immaculate ponytail to her elegant killer heels and the confidence levels oozing from her poise and her body language match that vibe," body language expert Judi James told

She added: “Stepping from the escalator she transfers her bag smoothly to her left hand to enable her to grasp Harry’s hand in her right.

“Her walk has a degree of bounce and as they fall into single file, she moves ahead of her husband to take the lead,” the expert suggested.

When asked about Harry's body language Judi said it lacks the same confidence.

She said: “As they come up the escalator his right hand reaches for his jacket button, and he appears about to do it up before quitting on that thought and touching his tie instead.

“His hand then splays out across his stomach area, with all these gestures being shortfall rituals, i.e., they never achieve any action or conclusion.”

Judi says that it appears to suggest he is creating a partial body barrier as he feels "inwardly awkward in front of the cameras".

“This is a signature ritual for Harry that he had been seen using in the UK," she added.

“Although it’s sad to see him still suffering any awkwardness or tension over in the US where he appears to be more relaxed and more at home,” the expert claimed.

Prince Harry was at the UN to celebrate Nelson Mandela International Day.

The Duke used his speech to tell the audience about his memories and affection for Africa, which he associates with both his mother and Meghan.

He whisked the Duchess of Sussex, 40, to Botswana in the early stages of their relationship.

But the continent was also a source of “solace” for the Duke as a young child when he was reeling from the loss of his mother.

He said: “Since I first visited Africa at 13 years old, I’ve always found hope on the continent.

“In fact, for most of my life, it has been my lifeline, a place where I have found peace and healing time and time again.

“It is where I have felt closest to my mother and sought solace after she died and where I knew I had found a soulmate in my wife.

“It’s why so much of my work is based there.”
