Today, the Royal Family were front and centre for the Trooping the Colour celebrations on the first day of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations. Body language expert Judi James spoke exclusively to Express.co.uk about how Kate Middleton fared in the spotlight looking after Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
The Cambridge children are ever so well behaved, and are impeccably polite during royal engagements.Today was no different as the royals and nation rallied together to celebrate HRH.
Judi told Express.co.uk: “Apart from looking her usual regal, elegant self, Kate also provided a masterclass in parenting today as she and William coped with their three young children at a very high-profile moment.”
But how did the mum of three ensure that her children were on their best behaviour?Despite Kate’s incredibly important royal role, she is a mother first, much like the late Princess Diana.
Judi observed: “Kate’s body language showed she was focused on the children first and foremost.”Arriving in the carriage with Camilla she barely seemed to acknowledge her during the ride, keeping her gaze on her children and only turning for some occasional, bashful-looking waves to the crowd.”
The expert continued: “It is clear William and Kate have been briefing their children carefully for their public appearances”William placed one hand on George’s shoulder while Kate stroked Louis’s hair.”The Duchess also uses the technique of getting on her children’s physical level.
“Kate also bent to speak to Louis several times, probably because he was bursting with impatience and excitement that emerged as groans of boredom or moments of what looked like sulking.”After all, the youngest Cambridge child is only four-years-old.
