After six months of maternity leave from royal duties, Kate Middleton is back under the spotlight! Finally, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stepped out for their first joint engagement since the birth of Prince Louis to attend the first Ministerial Mental Health Summit in London, on the 9th of October.
But it never occurred to us that their public comeback would be one ridden with spectacular changes in their body language. According to Judi James, a body language expert, there seems to have been intrinsic changes in the couple's body language since the birth of their third child.
Judi mentioned that Kate seems to have an increased confidence at their first public outing. Prince William was unusually tactile, flashing some sweet pinging smiles at his wife to suggest he's incredibly pleased to have her back at his side.
Judi noticed that the couple tends to be more touchy than before, which can be attributed to the pleasure of parenting or perhaps the influence of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who are always tactile in public.
Another body language expert, Traci Brown, noticed that all attention at the function seemed to be on Kate, who did most of the talking. Her husband was caught with his hand on her leg in support. Kate, who is typically a little bit shier, held her head up and showed a nice broad expansive of gestured that proved her confidence.
She was spontaneous in her laugh and her husband looked at her in pleasure. The adorable couple was really connected and on the same wavelength. The duo walked side by side, which shows they see each other as equals.
Patti Wood, another body language expert, summarized their outlook at the function to mean that they are both in good spirits and really happy and nicely energized.
Their ride together has been an admirable one from the start. Prince William and Kate Middleton got married in 2011. The couple welcomed their first child Prince George in 2013, then Princess Charlotte was born in 2015, and Prince Louis in April 2018.
The ever sweet couple seem to be more connected than ever.
May love, laughter and sweetness light their way!
