Kate Middleton reportedly changed after Queen Elizabeth passed away. However, her gestures seemingly suggest that she has embraced her role, according to a body language expert.
Kate Middleton Going Through Some Changes After Queen Elizabeth's Death?
Prince William and Kate Middleton were promoted after King Charles took over the throne. The royal couple has become the new Prince and Princess of Wales.
They continued their royal duties while still mourning the passing of Her Majesty. Body language expert Judi James shared the changes she noticed in Middleton.
"Kate's body language has changed since she became Princess of Wales, but perhaps not in the way that people might have expected," James told Express.
"The pressure could have caused some signs of anxiety and even imposter syndrome, but instead her confidence signals have been on an upward trajectory recently."
She continued, "She is now at something of a peak in terms of sending out signals, which suggests she now not only fully embraces and understands her role, but that she feels comfortable in it, too."
Kate Middleton Moving Away From Being Tagged As Just Prince William's Wife?
The Duchess of Cambridge is satisfied giving the spotlight to her husband, Prince William, who is the heir to the throne. However, the expert noted that Middleton is moving away from just being Prince William's wife to being a "leading" royal in her own right.
"For years Kate has tended to wear the rather self-limiting body language message that she is a non-royal in a royal role and wife to the future King, but now she seems to understand that she has been totally accepted as a leading royal in her own right," James explained.
"She is much more independent, often appearing more confident when she is working alone than with William, and her filmed addresses, speeches and messages are miles from the hesitant and slightly reluctant delivery style that she used to have."
