Body Language Expert Claims Kate Middleton Gave Prince William a "Cold Hard Stare" as a "Power Play"
Kate Middleton and Prince William spent St. Patrick's Day literally festooned in a buncha shamrocks for an appearance with the Irish Guards—their first since Kate became colonel of the regiment.
Kate's taking over the role from Wills, and according to body language expert Judi James, she gave him a "cold" stare that was a "power play signal."
"She stands fully to attention as she fixes William with what looks like a seriously cold, hard stare," James told The Express, via The Mirror. '"The look shows how seriously Kate is taking her new role. Her body language is immaculate here and military, rather than royal. William's response to her stare is a very puckered-looking smile to suggest pride and perhaps a sense of respect for the woman who is taking over his role."
Meanwhile, body language expert Darren Stanton tells Marie Claire, "It’s clear she wanted to stand out from the crowd and assert her authority over William and the other guests. She tends to opt for these superhero colors when she wants to be perceived in a powerful way. As this was Kate’s first appearance as Colonel of the regiment, she clearly wanted to state her position and make herself known amongst the crowds in the bold color."
Very much here for Kate taking over William's jobs and giving him side-eyes, honestly.
