During some past engagements, Duchess Meghan has acquired a habit, and it hasn’t gone unnoticed.
It is not a secret that almost everything that Meghan can and can’t do is dictated by royal tradition. But, one of her choices doesn’t seem to be a result of royal tradition. According to body-language expert is a message that indicates something much deeper.
Yesterday, Meghan alongside Harry visited Courtenay Creative, a new training facility for the screen and creative industries that provides young people with programs to excel in the film industry.
For the occasion she wore a white tuxedo dress called the “Leap of Faith Blazer Dress” by New Zealand designer Maggie Marilyn.
And we noticed her keeping her hands in the pockets during the event!
While some consider that move as rude, according to body language, Judi James there is an understandable explanation. In an interview with OK! she revealed: “The classic reason for this very common gesture is that it signals a subliminal desire to hide, especially when the hands are shoved deep into the pockets.”
“It also helps get over the common problem most of us suffer from, which is not really knowing what to do with our hands when we know people are looking at us.” However, she believes Meghan’s hands-in-pockets gesture has more to do with fashion than anything else.
She said: “Meghan’s high levels of confidence suggest her reason is more to do with fashion than anxiety though.
“It is also a probable nod to her love of 50’s styling.
Here’s Meghan with her hands and her pockets at two separate appearances in July:
When Meghan attended the Sentebale Polo Cup to cheer on her husband Harry, she wore a Carolina Herrera denim dress with deep pockets which she kept her hands in.
Another time she was spotted doing that was when she headed to London’s Southbank Centre to visit the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibitionat the buildings’ Queen Elizabeth Hall.
