‘Relaxed’ Prince Harry ‘clearly enjoying himself’ in US says body language expert


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

Body language expert Darren Stanton, who has experience analysing members of the Royal Family, noted how the Duke appears more “relaxed”.

He told Express.co.uk: “I think the fact that he is not in a suit and tie is quite informal with an open neck shirt and casual trousers reflects how he feels inside.

“It’s almost as though he has had enough ‘I’ve been on show for the public and always being told to look immaculate when engaging with the public’.

“Here we see a very relaxed informal version of Harry clearly enjoying himself and the situation.”

Prince Harry appeared alone at the event as his heavily pregnant wife, Meghan Markle, stayed at home.

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

Prince Harry told the cheering audience: “We cannot rest or truly recover until there is fair distribution to every corner of the world.

“This pandemic will not end unless we act collectively.

“The virus does not respect borders and access to the vaccine cannot be determined by geography.”

However, the body language expert did highlight how he does not look particularly confident but rather “humble and gentle”.

He said: “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.

Vax Live is urging governments to commit to vaccine equity by donating doses and resources.
