Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's standing appeared to be "diminishing" at Kevin Costner's charity fundraiser in Santa Barbara, as noted by a body language expert who provided exclusive insights to GB News. The One805 Live event saw the presence of notable celebrities, including Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres, who, according to Judi James, were "the key players" in the captured photographs.
In an Instagram upload, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were seen alongside Winfrey, DeGeneres, and the latter's spouse, Portia De Rossi. James, a seasoned body language expert, shared her exclusive analysis with GB News, shedding light on how Meghan and Harry were perceived in this particular image.
She remarked, "For Harry, venturing into new experiences is becoming a significant aspect of his life as he navigates the world without the protective shield of royal status. Posing with individuals who may be wealthier or more famous than himself, as seen in this photo, might leave him feeling somewhat uneasy."
"It's evident that in this group pose, Harry and Meghan aren't the central focus," James continued.
James implied that the central figures in the photograph were the A-listers positioned at the heart of the frame, saying, "The body language and positioning here designate Oprah and the woman she leans towards as the primary focal points, garnering the bulk of attention and interest, while the status implications wane as you move towards the edges of the group."
"In group photos, those positioned at the outer fringes, often leaning in to ensure they're included, typically hold lower status. This is where we find Harry, leaning in alongside Meghan to secure their presence," she added.
According to the body language expert, Prince Harry had grown accustomed to a different dynamic as a senior member of the Royal Family.
James suggested, "Back in the UK, Harry would have been central to nearly any photograph. Except for the well-known image featuring the late Queen alongside her three direct heirs, which is rumored to have played a role in his decision to step away from the Royal Family. Hence, his somewhat distant expression and tight-lipped smile may be justified."
