Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are back in the UK, the first trip they have made since attending the Queen's Jubilee event in June. The pair is in the UK for a series of charity events.

While their presence has always been a heated topic of discussion and speculation since the pair quit their royal duties and relocated to the US, this time around, they made headlines for something different altogether.

"We often hear people say the time is now, but I’m going to double down on that by saying that your time is now. The important work can’t wait for tomorrow. And this week the world is watching as you cement your place in history by showcasing the good that you are doing today in the present moment." She said.

Further along in the speech, Meghan declared how humbled and privileged to, not only stand before the attendees but beside them as they impacted the world.

Following the highly publicized opening speech, body language expert Judi James says the Duchess offered a "small love letter" to her husband, with her coy expression, nose wrinkles, and giggles.

Her face looked puckered in coyness as she waited for the crowd to respond to her words about being married to Harry. She then explained that Meghan's eye fluttering made her appear to still be in love and in the honeymoon stage with Harry.

According to James, Meghan had these long blinks and nose wrinkles whenever she referred to Harry. On the other hand, Harry appeared ill at ease as his wife spoke to the delegates at the four-day event.

James, who runs her own four-part body language series on Channel Five called "Naked Celebrity" explained that Harry responded to his partner by looking down and then upward with what looked like a sigh.

She explained that Harry touching his clothes and checking and seemingly adjusting his tie throughout Meghan's speech was a sign of anxiety and suggested a desire for self-reassurance.

What Will the Sussexes Do on Their Tour of Europe?

The pair, who flew into the UK on Saturday, September 3, had plenty planned out for their tour. They kickstarted it with their attendance at the One Young World Summit in Manchester on September 5, with Meghan's speech and meetings with delegates who she said were doing outstanding work on gender equality.

The tickets for the event are reported to cost a whopping one thousand pounds per day, which translates to three thousand pounds for the entirety of the three-day event.

On Tuesday, September 6, the couple will also attend the Invictus Dusseldorf 2023 One Year to Go event in Germany. The Invictus Games Twitter account confirmed their attendance on August 15, writing:

“We are pleased to announce that The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be joining us in Düsseldorf on the 6th of September to mark one year to go until the Invictus Games Dusseldorf 2023! More information coming soon.”

The pair will then fly back to England to attend the WellChild Awards, a charity Harry has patronized since 2007, on Thursday, September 8. Meghan and Harry attended the previous event in 2019, where Harry gave an emotional speech as he spoke about his son.
