Kate is more confident with public than William, says body language expert

Kate Middleton is more confident and comfortable with the general public than her husband Prince William, according to an analysis by a body language expert.

Darren Stanton analysed hours of footage of the royal couple and learned a great deal about how the Duchess of Cambridge conducts herself at public engagements.

His observations centred around how the couple acted during the unveiling of a new royal portrait of the couple, painted award-winning British artist Jamie Coreth earlier this month.

The couple were seen talking to locals, while having a pint and Mr Stanton has claimed that Kate was “far more relaxed” than her husband.

Speaking on behalf of gaming company Slingo, he told Woman and Home : “Kate appears to be the more confident one out of herself and William when interacting with people and we see a genuine sense of happiness from her – this wasn’t as present during the unveiling, denoting that some of the gestures shown at that event were more of a formality.

“Sometimes William is more reticent than Kate, and he is always cognizant of the fact he is a future king and even though he’s willing to relax more than other senior royals when it comes to protocol.

"As he wants to be a much more relaxed monarch, he is more aware of his behaviour and therefore can hold himself back. There’s no denying, however, the joy that William gets out of connecting with members of the public and it’s clear Kate is always on hand to encourage him to get stuck in.

“The first significant thing that strikes me about Kate during the portrait unveiling is the colour she has chose to wear. Her go-to power colours are blue and red, but here she’s chosen a softer, purple shade."

Despite the claims of those being her "go-to power colours", Kate was actually depicted in an iconic emerald green dress for the portrait.

The dress – which she wore during a Royal tour of Ireland in 2020 – was valued at around £1,600.

The expert continued: “William was, of course, in his trademark suit again, but you’ll notice he was not wearing a tie. Like Kate, this more informal and casual look signifies his willingness to appear approachable and connect with others.”
