“The couple use eye contact here to signal warmth and communication and Albert places a hand on her back and offers her a smile of encouragement as he looks back at her.”
A year later, the expert suggests “an appearance of tension in both Charlene’s facial expression and her body posture” when the royal attended the Amber Lounge Gala.
“Her hand is linked into Albert’s arm but she will also often bring her bag up in a small barrier ritual. His smiles begin to look rather rigid here and Charlene’s dipped head suggests shyness might still be a problem.”
