Meghan Markle, 39, and Prince Harry, 36, made their speech via video link from their home in California. A body language expert commented on the speech and what it may have revealed.

“The couple are sitting casually together on their cream sofa, chatting about Archie and giggling about getting interrupted by the dog, who is then picked up and petted.”

Despite the informal tone of conversation, Judi stated that the Duke and Duchess had important points they wanted to get across.

“It makes the tone relaxed and friendly although, as usual, Meghan’s points are delivered with impact and power,” she continued.

“Her passion looks personal and her signature hand to the chest and eyes raised upward underlines her emotional connection to her subject.

“Her chatty delivery prevents her points from sounding like a lecture here and she is happy to interrupt one of Harry’s most important and, he says, controversial points about the Diversity dance routine, when the upstaging dog wanders into the room.”

While Meghan was confident, the expert claimed Prince Harry appeared slightly nervous before speaking.

The mother-of-one may have taken a protective approach with her husband and jumped in to help.

Judi continued: “Meghan leads the first answer and it looks clear from Harry’s body language as he waits his turn that he is experiencing some discomfort that looks tellingly like performer anxiety.

She added: “As Harry speaks of his ‘awakening’ he reveals, surprisingly, that he has been out on the streets in London, talking to people and to ‘find out that it doesn’t really feel as diverse as it actually is’.

“His verbal fillers increase as he talks about this important subject and even Meghan seems to mirror his discomfort by placing one hand between her crossed legs and smiling.

“Harry’s keenness for his subject and his messages are clearly visible though in some of his more emphatic gestures as he rubs his hands together; claps them to suggest keenness to create change, and even partially punches one first into the palm of his other hand.”

Who is Meghan Markle? Quick profile

Meghan Markle was born Rachel Meghan Markle, on August 4, 1981 to parents Doria Ragland and father Thomas Markle.

Her father was previously married to Roslyn Loveless and Meghan has two elder half sibling – sister Samantha Markle and brother Thomas Markle Junior.


Meghan’s first television appearance in the USA was in an episode of the medical drama General Hospital in 2002.

She later moved on to roles in CSI, Without a Trace and Castle along with bit parts in Hollywood films including Get Him to the Greek, Remember Me and Horrible Bosses.

Meghan was also a “briefcase girl” on Deal or No Deal – but her most famous role was as Rachel Zane in legal drama Suits, which launched in 2011.

She was written out in the finale of the seventh series when her character got married, which aired in April 2018 – just before she got married herself.

Charity and humanitarian work

Meghan Markle’s career in television has gone hand-in-hand with her support for causes close to her heart.

She wrote about the stigma around menstrual health in an article for Time magazine and was a Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada – with whom she travelled to Rwanda for the charity’s Clean Water Campaign.

And her commitment to gender equality has seen her work with the United Nations – receiving a standing ovation in 2015 for her speech to mark International Women’s Day.


In September 2011, she wed film producer Trevor Engelson, who she began dating in 2004.

But the pair divorced two years later in August 2013, citing irreconcilable difference.

She was in a relationship with celebrity chef Cory Vitiello for almost two years, before they broke it off in 2016 but the two remain good friends.

And in June 2016, she met Prince Harry on a blind date set up by a mutual friend.

Their relationship began in October that year and just over one year later, on November 27, 2017, the pair announced their engagement.

They married on May 19, 2018 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

Meghan’s heritage

Some have claimed Meghan Markle is the first mixed-race member of the Royal Family.

Historians are still arguing about Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III.

But Meghan will be the first royal to openly embrace a mixed-race heritage.

She has written about the difficulties of being a biracial actress in Hollywood as she claims she is not black enough for some roles and not white enough for others.
