Queen Camilla and the Princess of Wales appeared as equals as they stood side-by-side to watch the Remembrance Sunday service, a body language expert has claimed.
Princess Kate subtly asserts royal hierarchy with the gracious move at the Cenotaph”
Both the Princess of Wales and Queen Camilla appeared side-by-side on the balcony of the Foreign Office, dressed elegantly in matching black coats, hats, and pearl jewelry.
Body language expert Judi James observed that the two women presented themselves as a “strong” team, standing apart but mirroring each other’s poses. She noted their almost identical wide-brimmed hats, pitched at the same angle, creating the impression of a cohesive and equal duo as they observed their husbands laying wreaths.
James observed that while Princess Kate maintained a solemn facial expression, Queen Camilla wore a “beatific” smile associated with calm happiness.
However, a notable moment occurred towards the end of the service, where Kate subtly signaled the royal hierarchy. James explained, “There was a moment at the end of the service when both women seemed to define the way that the late Queen’s death has left them still needing small royal hierarchical reminders or cues.”
She highlighted a moment when Camilla turned her head toward the interior, and it appeared that Kate gestured for her to go first. James described it as a sweet reminder, stating, “Camilla threw her wide, affectionate smile of what looked like gratitude as the two women stepped elegantly inside.”
