Meghan Markle has displayed a subtle sign showing “power asymmetry” in her relationship with Prince Harry, a body language expert has claimed.
“You have just witnessed a great example in which there is a power asymmetry in the couple expressed through body language,” Jesus Enrique Rosas, the royal commentator claimed while reviewing videos of Harry and Meghan during their previous public engagements.
Rosas, a body language expert said that Harry and Meghan were seen not in sync as he reffered to the couple’s appearance during an event in 2019 wherein Meghan displayed a gesture to leave while Harry was in the middle of a conversation.
Rosas has often studied the Sussexes’ relationship, examining footage and supposedly spotting controlling gestures that the Duchess has shown at several public engagements. The expert selected a footage of Harry and Meghan chatting to a woman at the Well Child Awards in 2019, months before they announced their decision to step down from their royal duties.
After observing Meghan’s facial expressions, the expert pointed out on his YouTube channel how the Duchess expressed her desire to end the conversation. “So Meghan does that signal that she applies so many times to end conversations that is touching people.”
The expert focused on another scenario when Harry and Meghan had been on the red carpet at a previous event, claiming that it had been replicated at the Well Child Awards. He explained, “When she wants Harry to stop talking she does that touch, and it’s more like a tap, and she does that on the lady, she taps her arm and then goes to grab her purse.”
The body language expert also noted that due to Harry having been with Meghan for a couple of years at this point, the Duke was able to understand his wife’s subtle signals. “That’s why he immediately breaks that engagement, that conversation dynamic by leaning back,” Rosas added, referring to the video where the Duke leaned back following Meghan’s gesture.
He observed how Prince Harry put his hands on the chair’s armrests, implying that he was about to stand up, copying his wife’s action. “So, for a split second, they were in sync, and that’s great. But then it goes out the window. Because Meghan just stands up and Harry, well it’s obvious that he wanted to keep talking because that’s what his body language was projecting at that moment.”
Harry seemingly picked up all of Meghan’s body language signals, however, Rosas implied that Meghan appeared not to pick up Harry’s signals, or maybe the Duchess just showed no care about them at all.
