Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William made a visit to Birmingham Palace and the baby bump of the mother of Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s baby bump was clearly visible. There have been many gossips about the pregnancy of the Duchess of Cambridge and some said that she is expecting twins and some say it’s only one child in her belly.
Their tour to the Midlands on Wednesday was started at the Jaguar Land Rover plant in Solihull and after that they had a visit to the JLR Experience Centre, Topcliffe Primary School in Castle Vale and then Aston Villa Football Club.
The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William are expecting their third royal child together and appeared in high spirits on the day.
In one photograph of the Royals they were seen to be fondly looking at eachother while they had their hands clasped up front.
The left hands of both William and Kate were noticed to be held over the right hand, and both hands were held in close to the stomach. So what’s the reason behind the same gesture of both Royals?
According to author and body language expert Judi James, extreme mirroring has always been a part of the body language displays of this royal couple.
She explained: “‘Like-bodied’ movement always signals ‘like-minded’ thinking and their identical royal waves plus the pace and style of their overall movements have always implied strong bonds of empathy and understanding.”
“Mirroring like this is even more significant in a couple like Kate and William because William seems to drop both his military bearing and style of movement plus his more traditionally formal royal posture in an act of mimicry when he is with his wife.”
Judi adds that this “style-flexing” suggests he is not only in love with Kate but also slightly in awe of her.
She said: “She was always the one showing subtly stronger signals of confidence at royal engagements and William’s mimicry of her suggests he finds her confidence contagious.”
The industrial-strength mirroring in this pose though is extra fascinating.
Judi said: “It is a signature pose of the Duke and Duchess and tells a rather endearing story.
“William has always showed traits of shyness in his body language and this ‘fig-leaf’ hand barrier gesture is one he has used for years.
“It is a gesture of vulnerability and one that – normally – only men tend to use. Kate has taken to copying it though and then following it up by catching William’s eye and making him laugh.
“It is a very gentle way of making his pose look less awkward and also recognising any times that he might benefit from a spot of shared laughter.”
Other royal couple’s body language has proven interesting in the past.
The Queen and Prince Philip celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary on November 20.
Kate Middleton and Prince William are set to welcome their third child after Kensington Palace announced their big baby news. The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton’s pregnancy announcement came as a surprise to the Royal fans who thought she was done after Prince George and Princess Charlotte. They thought that Prince William and Kate Middleton would not have the third child after the birth of George and Charlotte.
But when is Kate Middleton’s due date and is this baby a boy or girl. According to a report Kate Middleton said that she doesn’t know about the gender of the third baby and that it will remain unofficial until the baby is born. But as there was also a news that she is having morning sickness and craving for spicy foods. This points to the fact that she might have a baby boy in her belly.
