Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been away from the royal family for more than two years already. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex shocked the world when they announced their split from the royal family in January 2020 and later moved to the U.S. where they started their new lives as ordinary citizens.
Though they are no longer senior members of the royal family, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry continue to appear in public for various causes. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, despite their alleged strained relationship with the other royals, are even rumored to be coming back to the U.K. to grace the upcoming memorial service for the late Prince Philip in April and the Platinum Jubilee celebrations in honor of Queen Elizabeth’s 70th year of reign in June.
Recently, a body language expert revealed Meghan Markle’s “silent command” which she often uses when she wants Prince Harry to “stop talking” so they can leave. Keep on reading to know more details.
Meghan Markle’s ‘Silent Command’ To Prince Harry Revealed
Via his official YouTube channel, Jesus Enrique Rosas, fondly called Body Language Guy, divulged a signal Meghan Markle uses when she wants Prince Harry to “stop from talking.” The body language expert has been studying the public appearances of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and noticed the former Suits actress’ “silent command” to her husband.
Jesus Enrique Rosas stated:
“Meghan and Harry were attending the Wellchild Awards back in 2019, and they were talking to some of the families attending. And I think this was the last family they were talking to because they were sitting along a wall, and this was at the far corner, and in fact, it was the end of the video. But 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. And this is not the only time she’s been caught in camera interrupting Harry out cold.”
The body language expert furthered:
“There’s the [Commonwealth Day 2019] video where she does exactly the same, or the red dress video [their visit to the Annual Salute to Freedom Gala in New York City, November 10, 2021] where she uses that hand cue to get Harry going and of course, the direct ‘shut your mouth’ in Oprah’s interview. 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. “Such as when the nice lady hands them two bracelets. Can you spot the reaction in Meghan’s face? Yes, there’s her classic jaw clenching. And I don’t think there was any valid reason for her to express that emotional display at that moment.”
He also shared that:
“This is one of the reasons I always mention that one of the first skills you have to develop when reading body language is to pay attention to where the action is. In situations like this, it is really common to look at the hands getting the bracelet, but where the real action is, is on the face. On the other hand, pun intended, when she was listening to the lady talking, you can spot that her hands were restless, as she was pinching the flesh right beside her nails. That’s a common signal of anxiety and impatience, and really easy to spot. It doesn’t help at this moment, her smile was not the most genuine…her cheeks lack that pressure into her eyes. And another common signal that the person doesn’t want to be there is a long blink - Meghan does one of those really long blinks right before standing up.”
Jesus Enrique Rosas added:
“Let’s focus on Harry for a second - notice his posture. He was really engaging, with his elbows resting on his legs, and paying complete attention to the lady in front of him. But Meghan is already past the point of no return, because even if she is trying to project attention, tilting her head to the one side, like she’s caring about what the lady is saying, her lips are really tense, pressed against each other. So Meghan does that signal that she applies so many times to end conversations - that is touching people.”
“We have just witnessed that Harry picks up the body language signals of Meghan, but Meghan either doesn’t pick up Harry’s signals, or she just doesn’t care about them.”
Most, if not all royal followers, are aware that Meghan Markle is one of the primary reasons why Prince Harry decided to ditch the royal life for good. Not only since she is his wife but also because the Duchess of Sussex has become a favorite subject of criticism by the British media.
As if that is not enough, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle also revealed, during their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey last year, that the “racism” happening behind the palace doors was also among the reasons behind their shocking exit. The Sussex couple shared some members of the royal family raised concerns over Archie’s skin color when he was not born yet.

Did Meghan Markle Trash Plans To Return To Britain?
Meanwhile, Meghan Markle has reportedly shelved any plans on returning to the U.K. since she simply does not care about the sentiments of the British public. Royal biographer Tom Bower claimed that the wife of Prince Harry, who is currently resigning in California, thinks Britain is a “lost cause” and has no plans to come back to the U.K. after her popularity declined significantly.
Tom Bower told The Sun:
"Meghan's ultimate destination is unclear, but she certainly has the backing to make a bid to star as an American politician. In parallel, Britain is a lost cause for the Sussexes. In truth, I suspect Meghan no longer cares whether she is welcome in London. She has no intention of returning."
In January, Prince Harry revealed he filed for a judicial review over a previous ruling of the Home Office that banned him for playing his own police protection team while in the U.K. The husband of Meghan Markle issued a statement that read:
“Prince Harry inherited a security risk at birth, for life. He remains sixth in line to the throne, served two tours of combat duty in Afghanistan, and in recent years his family has been subjected to well-documented neo-Nazi and extremist threats. While his role within the Institution has changed, his profile as a member of the royal family has not. Nor has the threat to him and his family.”
It remains to be seen if Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Archie, and Lilibet would be able to return to the U.K. this year. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have also yet to respond to the claims that Meghan already trashed her plans to come back to Britain. So, these unverified claims should be taken with a huge grain of salt until everything is proven true and correct.
