Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were brutally “alienated” by King Charles at their last gathering with the royal family, a top body language expert has claimed.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined other royals at Westminster Abbey in Sept. 2022 for the late Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral.
Despite the pair traveling 5,459 miles to be with Harry’s family on the poignant day, body language expert Judi James says their interaction with the King was nothing but “hard-hearted and unpleasant.”
The Sussexes were snapped walking behind the monarch at Buckingham Palace before making their way to the funeral.
“These photographs of Harry and Meghan with Charles at the Queen’s funeral seem to make Harry’s subsequent disloyalty to his father seem even more hard-hearted and unpleasant,” James told The Mirror.
“Walking down the palace staircase the sense of alienation is obvious as Charles walks ahead, apparently oblivious of his younger son and his wife behind him. There is no sense of family huddling or even communication although the non-verbal messages look powerful.
“Harry might have been showing his solo bonding to his wife here by holding her hand but the emotional mirroring is with his father,” she continued.
“Charles looks solitary and his head is bowed in what looks like grief. Harry’s head is tilted away from Meghan and his facial expression with the steepled brows suggests he is silently sharing that grief with his father.”
During the funeral service, Meghan and Harry were sat behind the King and his wife, Queen Camilla.
“Charles later spoke of his love for Harry and Meghan and that affection might have been shown in their positioning during the Queen’s funeral,” James told the outlet.
“For any leader in history, the vulnerable position in terms of a potential attack is the back, which is why we describe the people closest to us as ‘having my back,’” James said. “This would have been a position of trust in terms of Charles’s emotions towards his son, despite comments and claims that had already been made.”
“It would have allowed Harry to see his father’s vulnerability caused by grief first-hand and close-up and perhaps have been an olive branch in their relationship. Harry’s body language looked full of resolve though.”
“Hand-in-hand with his wife the pair remained solemn-faced and isolated together, with no obvious signs of approach or sharing more widely here,” she added.
James noted that Meghan’s face was “dipped” and her expression was “hidden beneath the brim of her hat” which contrasted Harry, who seemingly stood “rigidly to attention with his brows drawn in a frown and a distant eye expression.”
The Sussexes’ appearance at the late queen’s funeral was the last time they both joined the royal family for an official event since quitting royal life in 2020.
