Following Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's interview with Oprah Winfrey, questions about their motives arose. A body language expert shares her perspective.


Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been considered betrayals of the royal family by many who questioned their true motive for the interview.

Some said that the couple's goal was to tear down the royal family, but a body language expert dismissed such notions.

Body language expert Nicole Moore remarked that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had a lot to say but restrained from doing so.

Although they made shocking revelations, the couple refused to name who made the racist comments about Archie.

Moore noted that the couple's restraint during the interview with media mogul Oprah Winfrey was a testament to their true motive of having the now famous interview. 

Moore reportedly said that Harry and Markle's refusal to name anyone behind the racist comment showed that their goal was not to tear down the royal family but to set the record straight.


The body language expert claimed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex used the interview to clear the record on their union and open up on their reason for stepping down from their royal duties.

Moore also claimed that Harry and Markle's withdrawal and restraint showed that deep within them, they were still loyal to the royal family instead of claims that they planned to pull them down.

Followers of the royal family are anticipating more reactions from Sunday's eye-opener. 


The body expert said that the couple's body language during the interview showed that they were indeed a united pair.

The couple tried reaching for each other's hand during the interview and had a warm look for themselves which showed their desire to be together.

The relationship coach and love expert added that Harry and Markle's love was real and sincere from their body language on the interview. He remarked that the couple had lost and won together and were indeed a team.


Patti Wood, a body language expert and author of "Snap: Making the Most of First Impressions, Body Language, and Charisma," also weighed in on the Harry and Markle conversation.

Wood reportedly said that Markle had tears in her eyes and smiled as she spoke, which showed that she could recall the incident. She claimed that the duchess tried to suppress her emotions even though there was so much to say.


Wood also remarked that Markle's sitting position showed that she wanted to protect herself from the audience's judgment. She noted that the 39-year-old's body language showed a complicated relationship with the queen.

Following Sunday's bombshell interview, a royal family expert Katie Nicholl reportedly said that Prince William would be devastated by his brother's revelations about their family.

In particular, bringing his wife's name into it. Followers of the royal family are anticipating more reactions from Sunday's eye-opener.
