Meghan takes lead as Harry looks like fish pulled out of water, says expert

Newly released snaps of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in Time magazine show clearly the 'power balance' in the relationship, according to a body language expert.

The Sussexes have been made cover stars of Time magazine's latest edition after being named among their top 100 most influential people this year.

The cover shows Meghan standing powerfully in a white jumpsuit with her hands clasped, as Harry perches behind her in black while resting his arm on her shoulder.

They also posed for more pictures inside the magazine, reports the Mirror.

In an accompanying write-up, José Andrés said of the royal couple: "In a world where everyone has an opinion about people they don’t know, the Duke and Duchess have compassion for the people they don’t know.

"They don’t just opine. They run toward the struggle."

Judi James, a body language expert, has now given her take on the images, claiming they show a "very different face of Harry and Meghan”.

The expert believes it captures the power balance between the two, with it "weighting in Meghan's favour" while Harry "follows".

She added: "She was the lead in the Oprah interview and Harry arrived later, with Meghan placing her hand on his to offer reassurance as he told his tale of woe.

"His power and status signals did increase as he spoke to Oprah but the interview was primarily between the two strong and confident women."

James also reckons that there's been a change in Harry and Meghan's appearances since they left the UK at the start of this year.

She said: "We saw Meghan adopting a rather regal pose for her 40th video while Harry clowned about juggling in the garden and, in their earlier interviews as a couple, Harry would often be squeezed into the side of their sofa, performing a range of anxiety rituals like knuckle-cracking and squirming while a very eloquent and confident Meghan showed her skills as an inspirational speaker.

"This was at odds with their poses in the UK, where Harry was the host and Meghan was learning the ropes as a royal.

"In the US the change in balance was almost immediate as Harry was inducted in the world of Hollywood A-list."

James also thought that the "glossed-up" attire the Sussexes wore for the photoshoot made Harry look uncomfortable, whereas his former actress wife was well-suited.

"She looks like her character in Suits got a promotion while Harry looks like a fish pulled out of the water," she said.

"Meghan is featured to the middle and the front of these poses and in the corporate world they would define her as the CEO, with Harry’s poses suggesting him in the role of wingman."

It's been a year like no other for the Queen from the loss of her husband to heartache over Prince Harry. But Her Majesty has also had a lot of cause for celebration, including the birth of baby Lilibet. To mark what a year the Queen has had, OK!
