Kate Middleton, 40, became a member of the Royal Family in 2011, and since then has earned the hearts of the British public. The Duchess with her husband Prince William, 39, and his younger brother Prince Harry, 37, appeared like three best friends in Kate’s early days in the Royal Family. The trio organised their own charity, Heads Together, to raise awareness for mental health.
Kate and Harry also had appeared very close over the years, with many photos existing of the pair laughing and smiling together.
But with rumours of a rift growing between the brothers over the last few years, Kate has demonstrated herself to be an “impressive” peacemaker according to a body language expert.
Judi James, a body language expert, spoke exclusively to Express.co.uk about Kate’s qualities which make her such.
She said: “Whether you’re dealing with toddler tantrums or brokering a cease-fire between two adult Princes, the three key qualities of any peacemaker are calmness, fairness and firmness.
“Kate’s body language shows she possesses impressive amounts of all three.
“Her projection of calm is legendary.
“Kate’s posture is always elegant but without any obvious signs of anxiety-like self-calming hand rituals like fiddling or metronomic foot-tapping or leg-swinging.
“Her perfect smile never fades or becomes a rigid rictus under pressure.
“This would help her diffuse a difficult situation with her presence alone.
“Kate shows no signs of having a competitive ego or of wanting to add to any drama by allowing her own feelings to show,” the expert claimed.
Judi continued: “She also projects fairness with her even-handed-looking body language.
“When sitting between the two brothers in 2016, she sits front-facing and with no body language cues to suggest favouritism or unequal attention.”
By the time Prince Philip died on April 9, 2021, Prince William and Prince Harry’s tested relationship had been made public.
At the funeral, Kate was the one who appeared to get the two brothers talking, according to Judi.
She continued: “When she choreographed the very difficult manoeuvre to get the brothers together at Philip’s funeral she did so by waiting for Harry to catch up while subtly slowing William down a little.
“This was before retreating herself to leave them walking alone side by side.
“This quiet and low-profile behaviour would have allowed both men to feel no loss of face in chatting.
“Her body language looked more subservient than dominant and authoritative.
“This would have allowed them to talk together like adults rather than looking like naughty schoolboys.
“In fact, it was only when looking at Kate’s manoeuvre again in detail that we can see exactly how smart it was.”
