‘Team of two’ Kate & William ‘exaggerated’ since Harry claims – ‘distinctly different’


    Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, joined Prince William today after he travelled up north last week to attend a series of engagements. The couple visited a social care charity Turning Point Scotland, where they met with workers to hear about the vital support they provide to those with complex needs, including addiction and mental health challenges.

    The CEO of Turning Point Scotland, Neil Richardson, praised the couple for being “very well-tuned into” how the organisation supports those in need. 

    He said: “I think they recognised a lot of what they heard today.

    “They came over as very relaxed, very personable. Everyone commented on it afterwards, they were just lovely people.

    “I think this will give the whole organisation a real life, partly that they have taken the time and interest to come and spend time with us, but it’s also an endorsement that what we are doing matters and that it is valued.”

    She said: “It’s interesting that William and Kate have developed their own signature body language rituals that are distinctly different from any other heirs to the throne and their husbands or wives and those traits seem to have become even more exaggerated since the rift with Harry and the accusations he has been launching against the royal family from the US. 

    “Other royal couples have used complementary body language rituals, taking two very different roles on royal visits, but William and Kate’s are mirrored, meaning most of the time they adopt identical poses and move with matching symmetry.

    “This postural echo or twinned body language not only defines a close, like-minded relationship, it also suggests even status and power.”

    The Cambridge’s often echo each other’s body language, whether that be while standing or sitting.

    Judi went on: “The signals they send off are of an even-handed formation team of two. 

    “The couple do also adopt complementary body language at times though, with one using status-lowering signals or becoming the audience to the other while the one speaking will use more active gesticulation to get their message across.

    “This ability to switch from twinned to contrasting, complementary body language rituals suggests a lack of any jealousy, resentment or desire to compete for attention between them.”

    During their visit today, the couple can be seen also performing matching rituals like head tilts and facial expressions as they go into “mutual listening mode”.

    The expert added that “they even adopted a matching crouching posture as they watched people speaking on a monitor, and an identical ‘fig leaf’ pose as they stand with their hands clasped in front of their torsos”.

    Judi continued: “When they start to speak though we can see them taking it in turns to take the spotlight while the other looks like a rather respectful fan. 

    “In many ways, they are like a non-verbal PR for their own spouse and their messages.

    “As William speaks here, using an emphatic one-handed chopping gesture, Kate’s intense eye-gaze not only flatters her husband but it makes what he is saying look twice as interesting. 

    “When Kate was speaking, William returned the compliment by clasping his hands and watching with matching signals of interest.”
