What's hard to hide: what the hands of Kate Middleton, Charles III and other royals "say"
Members of the royal family carefully choose their outfits for every public event. After all, their images are certain messages to the world. For example, when the media began calling Princess Kate Middleton of Wales the "future queen," she changed her style of dress to power dressing. That is, the basis of her outfits was pragmatic minimalism: monochrome, rich colors, strict suits and a restrained cut... However, members of the Windsor family are judged not only by their clothes but also by their non-verbal communication. For example, by body language and characteristic gestures.
What secrets have been "given away" by the position of the hands of King Charles III, Duchesses Kate and Meghan and other titled persons? Find out in the article by OBOZ.UA.
1. Kate Middleton
About 10 years ago, the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton often clutched a clutch in front of her in public. This habit was a kind of protective barrier that indicated her caution in her words and behavior. It was as if she needed to "hold on" to something to feel confident. Now, Prince William's wife knows the royal protocol perfectly and has honed her manners and eloquence to perfection. Accordingly, she mostly keeps her clutch down, not "closing" with it.
2. Meghan Markle
The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, is a very confident woman who feels comfortable at public events. She often puts her hand on her husband Prince Harry's back or just above his wrist to calm him down. With these gestures, Meghan does not dominate her lover, but supports him and hints that he is "her comfort zone."
3. Prince Harry
Since childhood, Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, has had a strange habit called paperclip hand (several fingers hidden behind a jacket or jacket). This is a demonstration of his modesty and uncertainty. When the prince relaxes his hands, leans slightly toward his wife, Meghan Markle, or takes her hand, these gestures help him calm his excessive excitement.
4. King Charles III
Even before his coronation, Prince Charles behaved modestly and insecurely: he held the lapel of his jacket with one hand, scratched his cheek/nose, or hid both hands behind his back. Now he is trying to change his behavioral patterns: he pretends to make his movements free and relaxed. For example, he gestures during a conversation or puts his thumb in his vest pocket somewhat defiantly. Maybe this is how he tries to win people's favor?
5. Queen Camilla
Queen Camilla of Great Britain, unlike her husband King Charles III, radiates strength and confidence (but not pride!) with her hand position. One of her signature gestures is the so-called "Merkel diamond" or "triangle of power": thumbs and forefingers are joined to form a triangle or diamond.
