While she noticed Prince William and Kate Middleton appeared calm and in excellent spirits, Judi claimed the Duke of Sussex looked "subdued and wary" at the highly anticipated event, much like "a dog with its tail between his legs."
"He performed multiple clothing touches to suggest anxiety as he walked round from the car and kept one hand held to his waist as he took his wife’s hand in the other," she explained of the father-of-two's anxious movements, per The Sun.
"In contrast with the Sussex’s low-key arrival, William and Kate were in full regal mode, looking relaxed, upbeat and chatty, arriving with Kate taking the lead and appearing slightly more dominant in the kind of quiet, firm leadership role we have seen her take during other difficult meetings with Harry and Meghan," she continued. “It was Kate instigating the wave to the crowd and it was Kate leading her husband as they walked up the steps.”
The sought-after expert, who has been frequently featured on BBC News, Sky News, CNN and other news networks, explained Harry kept fluctuating between quiet and anxious to overly excited, implying a "build-up of tension."
"Suppressing his playful side did seem to take its toll and as he leant in to joke or pull a face, it was Meghan putting a hand out to touch his waist as though hinting he might need to be a little more subdued," she added.
Judi also noted his behavior and facial expressions during the church service at St. Paul's Cathedral, speculating his face "became the rather haunted-eyed, reflective look that we saw from him before he quit the U.K., suggesting ongoing anxiety and even sadness at being consigned to the back row, with no apparent bonding rituals with his brother or his father."
"When he finally walked past Harry in the exit procession his head turned away to the other side and he sucked in his lips as his chin pulled up," she mentioned of Harry's nervous ticks around the rest of the royal family. "He also raised his order of service quite high in a body barrier gesture."
