A communication and body language expert who was involved in the documentary Camilla The Uncrowned Queen shed light on Prince Charles and Meghan's relationship.


Judi James regularly contributes to news and media publications. She revealed to Charlotte Pasha from Bustle what the Prince of Wales' body language gave away at the recent Trooping the Colour Parade. 

The parade took place on June 9th and is an annual event to commemorate the Queen's birthday officially. Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her 92nd birthday back in April. 

After the Queen met with the troops, the Royal family gathered on the Buckingham Palace balcony to observe the RAF aircraft fly overhead


Prince Charles was standing in the front row, between the Queen and Catherine the Duchess of Cambridge, with Prince Harry and Meghan standing behind him. 

James noted that the Prince of Wales was "drawn towards his youngest son and his new wife when it came to [having] a chat and a laugh."

The conversation engaged both Meghan and Catherine, and Meghan listened attentively to her father-in-law. At one point, she covers her mouth while smiling. 

"Meghan uses some great flattering body language signals to boost the ego of the people she's talking or listening to, and the smile and raised hand here does seem to be putting Charles into raconteur mode."

James added that the Prince of Wales respects the Royal newcomer and that his posture is his "signature look when he's making people laugh."

The Trouping the Colour parade dates back to the 17th century. Since the late 1740's, the event also marked the official birthday of the ruling British Sovereign. 

The 2018 parade was Meghan's first Trouping the Colour event since joining the Royal family by marriage. For more details, follow our official Twitter account, AmoMama USA.
