Sophie has been pictures with her mother-in-law many times during the past 20 years.

Analysing snaps of them together, body language expert Judi James gave a glimpse into their relationship.

She told “The Queen’s body language with Sophie always suggests her daughter-in-law is a bit of a confidante.


“Sophie’s relaxed, constantly calm and upbeat demeanour seems to allow the Queen to relax more in her company, too.”

Sophie and the Queen’s body language shows the two royal are comfortable in each other’s company.

The pair may have formed a close bond due to their shared interest of activities such as horse riding.
