Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge were out on Thursday at the Royal Albert Hall in London for the Royal Variety Performance. The couple oozed regal elegance at the event and were the very picture of marital bliss. According to a body language expert, William appeared to be full of “utter pride” for his wife as she walked the red carpet at the star-studded event.
Body language expert Judi James told Express.co.uk: “William really was in ‘Prince Charming’ mode last night, quietly pointing out the red carpet to Kate as she walked up behind him to avoid any risks of tripping in her stunning green dress and constantly looking back throwing her admiring glances before waiting for her to catch up so they could walk in together.
“The pair worked independently but these moments of concern and their signature trait of subconscious mirroring (waving at the same time in the same way without being side by side) suggested she was very much at the front of his mind.
“William’s eye-checks of his wife suggested utter pride while his signals of positive anticipation suggested he was also looking forward to the show.”
According to Ms James, there was also no signs of “competitiveness” from William when Kate was receiving attention during the evening.
Ms James added: “William also showed another trait of a lack of any competitiveness of Kate when it was her moment in the spotlight.
“As she moved forward to take her bouquet he stood back smiling with pride with his hands and his programme held in front of his body in a barrier gesture to signal this was her moment.”
In recent weeks, the Royal Family has been rocked by the absence of the Queen, who has been taking some time off for her health.
And during this time, other members of the Royal Family appear to have come to the fore – including Kate.
Many of Kate’s philanthropic interests are centred on early years development, addiction and photography.
The Duchess was widely praised for her impassioned speech on addiction at a Forward Trust event to launch the charity’s ‘Taking Action on Addiction’ campaign in October.
Kate also played a high-profile role in raising awareness this month for Remembrance Day and those who lost their lives in war.
Many noted that Kate appeared to be a Queen-in-waiting at the Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph.
With the Queen unable to attend the event due to a back injury, Kate took the Queen’s usual spot in the centre of the FCDO building’s balcony.
Kate also visited the Imperial War Museum earlier this month where she opened The Second World War Galleries and The Holocaust Galleries.
Kate’s portraits of two survivors of the Holocaust, Steven Frank and Yvonne Bernstein, were also displayed in the exhibition: ‘Generations: Portraits of Holocaust Survivors’.
