'Gentle’ Prince Harry is ‘humble and genuine’ in latest US appearance – ‘Not arrogant’


The Duke of Sussex was greeted by a roaring crowd at the charity Vax Live concert earlier this month in Los Angeles. Prince Harry gave a poignant speech calling for vaccines to be “distributed to everyone everywhere”.

The concert was held in aid of the international COVID-19 vaccination effort and included several celebrities such as Selena Gomez and Jennifer Lopez.

Body language expert Darren Stanton, who has experience analysing members of the Royal Family, described how the Duke does not come across confident in most public appearances.

But he explained how Harry instead appears more “genuine” than “arrogant or egotistical”.

Mr Stanton told Express.co.uk: “I do not think he looks particularly confident in this or many public engagements.

“When performers or speakers are trying to own the stage they will generally use as much space with their body as possible like spreading their feet or making large hand gestures.

“Harry does neither which says he is not wishing to be perceived as arrogant or egotistical, he comes over as a humble and gentle and genuine person.”

Meghan and Harry are campaign chairs of Vax Live which is organised by the anti-poverty group Global Citizen.

The couple relocated to the US with their baby son Archie after stepping back as senior members of the Royal Family.

He said: “Tonight is a celebration of each of you here, the vaccinated frontline workers in the audience and the millions of frontline heroes around the world.

“You spent the last year battling courageously and selflessly to protect us all.

“You served and sacrificed, put yourselves in harm’s way, and acted with bravery, knowing the costs. We owe you an incredible debt of gratitude. Thank you.”

Mr Stanton went on to explain how Harry came across as a “quietly confident man” with no defensive body language gestures.

He said the Duke was “displaying feeling very comfortable.

“He has no defensive gestures like crossing arms or putting his hands in his pockets with a mike in one hand and his hand by side this denotes is a quietly confident man.”
