Prince William and Kate Middleton have ‘magnificent’ body language and a ‘strong, loving’ bond, expert says

While talking about William and Kate on Australia’s Sunrise Morning Show, body language expert Dr. Louise Mahler exclaimed, “Aren’t they magnificent?!”

She explained how their attention to each other shows they are “strong and loving” and added, “But I’ll take that a step further and say these two take their roles very seriously.”

Mahler pointed out how William, Kate, and other royals “show us how to behave” and how they used that in recent years. “[They’re] showing that touch is back, and post-pandemic, this is really important that we’re touching each other,” she noted.

Mahler concluded, “Nothing is an accident with them. It’s all calculated, and it’s beautiful. They are a magnificent couple.”

In another analysis for Woman’s Day, Mahler compared William and Kate to a work of art. “… The way that they do everything so perfectly,” she explained. “They have the smile when it’s needed. They have the serious face when it’s needed, they bow their head, they do everything to perfection.”

While focusing on the couple’s walkabout at Windsor Castle with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Mahler pointed out there is a message in the way they “walk in a straight line… keep the arms moving… move the legs.”

According to Mahler, they maintained their composure despite their mourning over the death of Queen Elizabeth II and any feelings about their company. “What is absolutely clear is that William and Kate do not want to be associated with [Harry and Meghan]. They are being polite. And it’s a very minimum. Otherwise, they’re getting no eye contact. Distance is being kept,” she explained.

Prince William and Kate Middleton ’effortlessly’ transitioned into new roles

Mahler isn’t the only expert who thinks William and Kate have shown consistent strength and preparation. Royal author Katie Nicholl told People the couple’s transition to their new roles was ”seamless.”

“William’s years of being mentored by his grandmother and his father have really paid off because the transition to Prince of Wales has been seamless,” Nicoll explained. “Kate has also effortlessly moved into a role with so much weight and history and is already making it her own.”

Some experts argue that their confident body language, even under pressure, shows how they are the ”leaders of the pack.”

“While they have both taken on new titles and more senior roles within the royal hierarchy, they have done so while staying very true to who they are and the causes they have championed,” Nicholl explained. “It’s no coincidence that one of Kate’s first engagements was to a maternity unit in Surrey, and as Princess of Wales, she’s going to bring even more attention to her Early Years foundation.”
