A body language expert claims that Kate Middleton gave Meghan Markle cold looks over the weekend at Windsor Castle to “freeze” her out.
According to Australia’s Seven News, Katia Loisal said, “Quite unlike the confident Meghan we know, Meghan appeared ill at ease throughout this encounter, which is not surprising given the recent criticism that she has faced.”
She remarked that Prince William, Middleton’s husband, looked to make an effort with his sister-in-law, but asserted that the newly installed Princess of Wales’ glares appeared to be an attempt to “freeze out” Markle.
“On numerous occasions Meghan looked over at Kate, however, the gaze wasn’t reciprocated,” Loisal said. “Middleton instead seemed to “look through” Markle,” she added.
Loisal believes Middleton was successful in her seeming intent to make Markle uncomfortable.
“Meghan’s hand lifted hesitantly as if to wave, but stopped midair, rather pausing to adjust her hair, her head and gaze lowered, before looking up and giving a quick wave, her arm coming back to rest in front of her body in a partial arm barrier,” the body language expert explained.
Internal family turmoil according to body language experts
According to Judi James, a body language specialist, there were “no signals of affection” between Middleton, Markle, and her husband, Prince Harry, and William when they were together.
The two couples hadn’t been seen together in public since Commonwealth Day on March 9, 2020, before the COVID-19 lockdown, so their reunion at London’s Windsor Castle on Sunday was significant.
Middleton and Markle avoided making eye contact with one another as they greeted the throng who had assembled to mourn the passing of Queen Elizabeth II on September 8.
The “Suits” alum said Middleton made her cry before her 2018 wedding, which fueled feud rumors between the two over the years.
When Harry and Markle infamously resigned from their official duties in January 2020 and relocated to California, they sharply divided the royal family.
