Princess Anne's 'challenging' body language suggests she's not suited for role of Queen

She has been a working royal for most of her adult life and is often considered to be one of the hardest working members of the family.

Commenting on the royal during appearances, body language expert Judi James explained why she may not be suited for the role of monarch.

“I’d love to say Anne would for her spirit, aura of strength and grit but I don’t think she would have made a great Queen for our times,” she told Express.co.uk.

“At present, the job is all about winning smiles and bright coloured coats.


“It’s about suppressing your true feelings and being unendingly polite and charming and keeping out of controversy.”

She explained Princess Anne has not taken a quiet approach to her royal role.

Judi continued: “Anne was only really a rebel insofar as that she didn’t fit into the traditional role of a royal princess of the day.

“She was a sportswoman and she was opinionated in an era when she was probably expected to sit around in palaces waiting for her prince to come.”

The way in which Princess Anne has handled position in the family would possibly make her struggle with the role of the Queen, Judi suggested.

However, the expert explained her approach is more similar to another royal.

She added: “Anne would have made a better Elizabeth I than an Elizabeth II: a warrior queen that you’d want to lead from the front in wartime.

“Neither Anne nor Charles display the kind of body language signals that make them naturals for the job of crown-wearing but I’m sure Anne would struggle more than her brother.

“The thought of an ever-smiling, ever-chuckling Anne is almost inconceivable.”

While the expert claimed Princess Anne may not be right to sit on the throne, she will often support the Queen in public.

When doing so, Judi said she has shown qualities similar to her father Prince Philip.

She said: “Stoic, hard-working, practical, out-spoken and challenging to meet, her low-key, unfussy, immensely solid role in the Queen’s public life makes their relationship look similar in many ways to that between the Queen and her husband.”
