Meghan Markle was ‘more confident’ in Westminster: expert

Meghan Markle seemed more confident during her second public outing in honor of Queen Elizabeth II.

“She seemed less reserved and more confident than she was with Windsor,” body language expert and author Judi James exclusively tells Vidak For Congress.

Markle, along with husband Prince Harry and other members of the royal family, paid tribute to the late monarch at Westminster Hall on Wednesday.

The Duchess of Sussex paid her respects by bowing to the Queen’s coffin while her husband bowed his head.

The pair sparked mixed reactions during the service as they held hands as they walked out of the hall. Princess Anne’s daughter, Zara Tindall, and her husband, Mike Tindall, also held hands as they approached the Queen’s casket and went out.

The “Suits” alum looked “more confident” than her first appearance on Saturday as she took part in a walkabout with Prince Harry and the Prince and Princess of Wales.

Markle betrayed “inner fear” when she awkwardly greeted the crowd of mourners outside Windsor Castle, James said.

“Meghan looked like a woman waiting for her directions instead of pushing herself forward,” the body language expert continued, adding that her “frequent hair that during the walk” suggested “some inner anguish.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also held hands during that outing.

“The couple used a hand buckle to amplify the comfort signals, while Meghan stroked Harry’s hand with her thumb inside the buckle,” James explained.

The Queen died on September 8 at the age of 96, after a reign of 70 years. She was the longest reigning monarch in British history.

Her funeral is scheduled for Monday at Westminster Abbey in London.
