Kate Middleton, 40, made an official trip to Denmark the week of February 22. The Duchess of Cambridge showed many “anxious gestures” in photos taken of her in Copenhagen. Moreover, during this tour, the expert in body language, Judi James, affirms that the wife of prince William, 39 years old, was indeed nervous. “There are only two or three gestures that refer to potential feelings of nervousness or anxiety regarding in particular the current crisis within the royal family,” she told OK!. “In a pose, Kate has both hands on the handle of her bag and holds it in front of her torso in a barrier gesture that makes her look less assured than when she walks with the bag at her side,” added Judi James.

Note that the Duchess of Cambridge participated in a meeting at the university during her visit to Copenhagen. In the photos, the mother of Prince George, 8, Prince Louis, 3, and Princess Charlotte, 6, had her hands in her lap. Moreover, Kate Middleton was the only one of the group to make this gesture while all the other participants had their hands on the table. This gesture by the members of the group would give an advantage in terms of signals of spatial dominance and status, according to Judi James. “It makes her look a little uncertain, but the meeting room world is not her natural habitat and I hope she’s drifted off course a bit as the meeting progressed,” added the expert.

Despite this touch of nervousness, the 40-year-old royal was objective and particularly enthusiastic during this visit, according to Judi James. During her tour, Kate Middleton visited the early childhood center. Its aim is to discover “Denmark’s approach to early childhood development”. During this visit, the Duchess of Cambridge chose to wear a white shirt associated with a red Zara jacket.
“Her attire feels like an intentional statement of a more edgy, more professional approach, and that feeling carries over into her handshake techniques,” says Judi James. Note that Kate Middleton greeted the crowd and shook hands with fans. Which is proof of modesty and warmth, again according to the expert.
