Royal heartbreak: Prince Harry wanted ‘one last laugh’ on final engagement


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are now settled in Los Angeles with their baby son Archie. The pair are no longer using their titles, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and have relinquished their royal work after exiting the Royal Family earlier this year. One of their very last engagements was a Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey, alongside the rest of the Royal Family, in March. 

Some commentators noticed that the greetings between Harry and his elder brother William had not been particularly warm in the Abbey.

However, a royal body language expert claimed that once William and Kate had left the service, a relieved Prince Harry looked like his old self again. 

Podcast Pod Save the Queen is hosted by Ann Gripper and features Daily Mirror royal editor Russell Myers.

Speaking in an episode this month, body language expert Judi James delved into all the subtle signs that she picked up on in Harry and Meghan’s last ever royal appearance in the UK before their exit. 

Ms James said: “I think the last appearance that they  made, it was very telling.

“I think he suddenly realised that this was the last public appearance that he was going to make. 

“William and Kate had just left, and he and Meghan had been very, head down, subdued, while they were there.

“But suddenly as their car went off, you suddenly saw Harry become animated and fun again.

“But once you’ve made that decision, the relief is tangible.

“And I think that’s where we saw the old Harry coming back again.” 

She continued: “I hope, hope, hope for his sake that Hollywood Harry works ok.

“He is going to be pretty isolated – his gang, his crowd won’t be there with him. 

“He’s going to have to prove himself again in a slightly more intellectual and superficial world, that he might struggle with.”
