Meghan Markle gave Prince Harry ‘silent support’ at Queen’s funeral: expert

Meghan Markle offered Prince Harry ‘quiet support’ during Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral on Monday, according to a body language expert.

“The best description of Meghan’s body language at the funeral was ‘understated'”, body language expert and author Judi James tells Vidak For Congress exclusively.

“She seemed to provide a continuation of that quiet support for her husband as she sat and walked with a look of dignity tinged with sadness.”

James also noted that the couple’s much-discussed hand-holding, for which they have been given some nonsense, “was kept to a minimum,” although they appeared to be touching the hands as they walked out of the shift together.

According to James, the Duke of Sussex, 38, seemed to struggle the most during the service for his beloved grandmother.

“Walks next to, but far away from, his brother” [Prince William]his puckered eyebrows and quick blinks indicated the beginning of tears,’ James noted.

“When he watched the coffin unload, there was the sucking in of the lips, rocking back and forth, and shoulder rolls he’d previously performed to suggest he was emotionally braced.”

But in the end it was Markle, 41, who got visibly emotional during the funeral.

She was photographed gently wiping her tears as her lip quivered as the late queen’s coffin was transferred to a hearse at Wellington Arch.

The alum “Suits” wasn’t the only member of the royal family to shed tears at the monarch’s funeral.

King Charles III also saw you wipe away tears during the service as he sat next to the queen consort.

Princess Charlotte, 7, burst into tears as the queen’s coffin was moved from a carriage to a hearse. She was comforted by her mother, Kate Middleton.

It’s been a rough week for Prince Harry and Markle, who have seemingly been treated differently by the royal family since opting out of royal life in 2020.

The couple was invited — and later uninvited — to a state reception for world and foreign leaders last Friday.

Vidak For Congress exclusively reported that they only found out after reading the “disinvite” in the press.

Prince Harry, who served in the military for 10 years, was also banned from wearing his military uniform to the Queen’s funeral. The duke was stripped of his military titles when he stepped down as a working member of the royal family.
