Kate Middleton has ‘changed’ and is ‘more confident’ since becoming Princess of Wales

A body language expert has claimed that Kate Middleton has ‘changed’ since taking on her new role. The Princess of Wales appears to be coming across as more confident.

Kate followed in the footsteps of Diana in September, when she became the first Princess of Wales since Harry and William’s mother. Many say she is doing an impressive job so far, despite it not being an easy task.

Judi James spoke about how Kate’s body language has changed in recent weeks. She said that she has moved away from being William’s wife to being a “leading” royal in her own right.

She told the Express : “Kate’s body language has changed since she became Princess of Wales, but perhaps not in the way that people might have expected. The pressure could have caused some signs of anxiety and even imposter syndrome, but instead her confidence signals have been on an upward trajectory recently.

“She is now at something of a peak in terms of sending out signals, which suggests she now not only fully embraces and understands her role, but that she feels comfortable in it, too. She is much more independent, often appearing more confident when she is working alone than with William, and her filmed addresses, speeches and messages are miles from the hesitant and slightly reluctant delivery style that she used to have.”

The body language expert also noted that Kate is completely different to another senior role whose role has changed since the Queen’s death. She said that Camila could look “uncomfortable” when she is in her royal role.

She added: “Part of this ‘stepping up’ could be caused by the new Queen’s lack of confidence and a lack of desire to be in the spotlight. Camilla is very much her husband’s support act primarily, and she can look uncomfortable when she is in her royal role.

“This might have nudged Kate into the strong position she holds now, both inside and outside the Royal Firm.”

Judi also said that the Princess of Wales has become tactile with her husband in public in recent weeks. She said that the pair were looking “far more relaxed and playful together” which might have been prompted by the loss of the late Queen.
