Kate Middleton showed ‘authentically fun’ side at Carol Concert, expert claims

A body language expert described the Duchess of Cambridge's performance at Westminster Abbey Carol Concert as "confident" and "friendly".

She also claimed that Kate Middleton's performance indicated her quiet adoption of a more "matriarchal leadership role" in The Firm.

Kate Middleton stunned viewers of her Royal Carols concert when she took to the stage alongside chart-topper Tom Walker.

The pair joined forces for a touching rendition of his song For Those Who Can't Be Here where the Duchess Of Cambridge accompanied him on the piano at Westminster Abbey.

Kate, 39, joined the singer to perform the track wearing an elegant red dress as she wowed the audience of the ITV Christmas special show.

Despite the Duchess reportedly feeling "nervous", body language expert Judi James said that the Duchess of Cambridge appeared "confident, friendly and authentically fun".

In her introduction, Kate said: "We wanted to say a huge thank you to all those amazing people out there who have supported their communities.

"We also wanted to recognise those whose struggles perhaps have been less visible too.

"We have been through such a bleak time. We’ve seen so many challenges. We’ve lost our loved ones.

"We’ve seen our frontline workers under immense pressure. And also we’ve been more emotionally and socially distanced and isolated from each other.

‘But I suppose through that separation, we’ve also realised how much we need each other and how acts of kindness and love can really bring us comfort and relief in times of distress."

Studying her introductory message, Ms James spoke to FEMAIL saying: "Watching Kate deliver this very personal and individual video message with its emphatic visual themes of warmth, kindness and Christmas card-style visuals, it is hard to imagine that the format is anything other than a fledgling version of the Queen’s speech from the woman who will one day hold that role.

"Over the past couple of years Kate has been re-positioned in the royal Firm to have a much more central, powerful and high-profile role in her own right.

"'Previously appearing as William’s wife and part of that pitch-perfect and mirrored double act, she is now championing her own global projects and causes as well as quietly adopting more of a matriarchal leadership role in the family."

Ms James also praised Kate's "almost professional" performance skills in front of the camera that made her look confident yet friendly and accessible.

She also suggested that Kate Middleton's laugh in the performance was a genuine indication of good humour, rather than a fake laugh for sake of the audience.
