Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been married for three years already. However, many believed that the duchess wears the trousers in their marriage, and she allegedly even controls her husband's behavior in public.
Meghan Markle Uses Hand Gestures To Allegedly Control Prince Harry In Public
Body language expert Jesus Enrique Rosas talked about the royal couple in his YouTube channel Body Language Guy. He has been following their public engagements. He noticed some habits that have been repeated several times in multiple outings.
According to Rosas, there are times when Markle is visibly impatient. At those time, she noticed how the Duchess of Sussex gives her husband signals that they should move on.
He cited one of their engagements in 2019 when the Sussexes visited Wellchild Awards and talked to the families who were present. The royal couple was talking to the last family, according to Rosas, while noting that the scene appeared at the end of the video, and the family was seated along the wall and at the far corner.
"Harry was still talking to them, in a quite engaging way, and then Meghan just stands up and literally, and silently commands Harry to stop and stand up just using her body language," he told Express. "And this is not the only time she’s been caught in camera interrupting Harry out cold."
He cited two other incidents when Markle allegedly made the same move — during Commonwealth Day 2019 and at the Annual Salute to Freedom Gala in New York City in November. According to the expert, Markle uses her hand to cue Prince Harry. She also told him directly "shut your mouth," during their interview with Oprah Winfrey.
"So, Meghan controlling Harry’s behaviour, in the most public way possible, is nothing new but this time [at the Wellchild Awards] is interesting because there were previous clues that foreshadowed this," he added.
How Meghan Markle Shows That She's Already Impatient To Move On
The expert pointed out one incident when Meghan Markle's jaw clenched when a lady gave them two bracelets in one engagement. According to Rosas, there was no reason for Markle to express that emotional display at the time.
Also, another clue that she's impatient includes her hands being restless, like when she was pinching the flesh right beside her nails. Also, her smile appears not genuine because her cheeks lack the pressure on her eyes.
“When Meghan is going to fix her hair, her hand gesture almost blocks her face completely from view," he continued. "It’s literally in the middle of eye contact in this case, so it’s another very subtle signal that she was not comfortable and most probably wanted to be anywhere else."
Markle also does long blinks — a common signal that the person doesn't want to be there. She usually does this before standing up. Another obvious sign is when Markle touches people or taps them.
"Whether it’s the [Commonwealth Day 2019] video, or the red dress [Annual Salute to Freedom Gala] video, or the Oprah video where she wanted Harry to stop talking, she used that touch, that is more like a tap," he added. "And she does that on the lady - she taps her arm then goes to grab her purse. And touching the lady and grabbing her purse means, let’s go. That’s why Harry immediately breaks that engagement."
