Meghan was ‘nervous’ but emulated Queen in TV return, body language expert says

Pregnant Meghan Markle was "nervous" and keen to emulate HM The Queen during her first television appearance since her bombshell Oprah interview, a body language expert has claimed.

The 39-year-old Duchess was one of the many famous stars featuring on the Global Citizen Vax Live: A Concert to Reunite the World event on Saturday night.

And Judi James has suggested the star – who is expecting her second child with Prince Harry, 37 – gave off signs that she was feeling “nervous” to be back in front of a camera.

James spoke to The Mirror to give her opinion on how Meghan was really feeling as she gave a speech about Covid-19 vaccinations and hopes for the future.

Judi said: "Meghan’s body language at the start looked as serene and static as the large cushion beside her, but with a small self-comfort thumb-rub gesture to suggest some inner nerves, too.

"Hers was a floral-clad, maternal-looking charisma, low on passionate gesticulation and high on kind smiles and bump-cupping.

"The regal note appeared verbally too as she sat, upright and elegant, to refer to ‘My husband and I’ in the style of the Queen, but that cupping gesture that she had also used on Oprah, reminded us of her theme about daughters and woman of the future."

During her appearance on the show, Meghan highlighted the negative impact the Covid-19 pandemic has had on women across the world, while urging people around the world to take up offers of the Covid-19 vaccine.

She said: “As campaign chairs of Vax Live, my husband and I believe it's critical that our recovery prioritises the health, safety and success of everyone – and particularly women, who have been disproportionately affected by this pandemic.”

She explained: “Women, and especially women of colour, have seen a generation of economic gain wiped out by the pandemic” citing the fact that 5.5 million women have lost their jobs in the US since lockdowns began.

And she claimed as many as 47 million women and girls across the world are expected to be pushed into poverty due to the global health crisis.

On a more optimistic note, she continued: “But if we work together to bring vaccines to every country and continent, insist that vaccines are equitably distributed and fairly priced, and ensure that governments around the world are donating their additional vaccines to countries in need, then we can begin to fully rebuild.”

She added. “Not only to restore us to where we were before, but to go further, and rapidly advance the conditions, opportunity, and mobility for women everywhere.”
