The projected ‘bonding and unity’ as they gathered at Westminster Abbey last night for the ‘ carol service after Harry and slot online gampang menang Meghan’s latest slew of attacks, body language expert Judi James said today.
Footage caught the moment King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla greeted Kate and William as they walked down the nave.
Ms James said the princess’s ‘warm smile of pride’ as she watched her children exchange kisses with the monarch ‘show everything we need to know about family unity’.
She said further clues came from ‘extra, add-on touches’ including ‘lingering smiles and eye contact’.
Judi James said the Princess of Wales keeping a hand on King Charles’ shoulder was a show of ‘intimate affection’
Referring to this moment, Ms James noted how Prince William and the King exchanged words which caused Charles to ‘throw a grin back at his son’
‘Charles’s cheek kiss with Kate is followed by a formal ritual of the bobbing curtesy but then we can also see Kate’s hand is still on Charles’s arm as her face turns towards Camilla,’ Ms James told MailOnline.
‘This shows extra fondness, while the ”double-bagging” of touching one relative while turning to greet the other, suggests a desire to reinforce the idea of grouping together and unity.
‘Camilla’s hand on top of Kate’s shoulder as they kiss is another display of more intimate affection and, like Kate did with Charles, Camilla’s hand is still on Kate’s torso as they turn, in another gesture of “grouping” to imply unity.’
Focusing on King Charles’ body language, Ms James said: ‘Charles is never a comfortable-looking grandad in public but he sweetly bends to kiss George and Charlotte and they both put their arms out for a truncated hug while Kate watches proudly.
‘Charles and William’s greeting looks a little more meaningful, with some words exchanged as Charles walks away that cause the King to throw a grin back at his son.
‘There is another gesture from Kate to show this desire to signal family grouping, bonding and unity as Charles walks back to speak to her.
‘She quickly transfers her bag from her left hand to her right so she can extend her arm in another truncated touch and hug ritual as he talks to her, lifting her arm to place it behind his.’

Poignantly, William read a passage from the late Queen’s 2012 Christmas message in which Her late Majesty said she was ‘always struck by the spirit of togetherness’ at Christmas.
It was a time, she had added, ‘when we remember that God sent his only son to serve, not to be served’.Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace have said they will not comment on Harry and Meghan’s claims – with the King said to be determined never to watch the six-part series.
