There May Be a Hidden Meaning Behind Prince Harry’s Odd Hand Gesture

Yes, we’re still gawking at Meghan Markle’s stunning diamond ring. But we’ve moved on — for a minute, at least — to Prince Harry’s unusual hand gesture in their engagement photos outside Kensington palace. In many of the photos, you can see Harry’s hand tucked nicely into his suit jacket.

And this isn’t the first time that Harry has been spotted doing this — from movie premieres to engagements with America’s First Ladies, Harry’s nervous tick (or intentional gesture) has made an appearance.

So, this left us — and many others — wondering: Can we chalk this up to a bad habit or does it have a deeper meaning? Traci Brown, body language expert and author of Persuasion Point: Body Language and Speech Influence, told that Harry’s behavior may be a combination of the two.

“First, it’s likely a habit. He’s seen this way quite a bit,” she said. “He’s covering his solar plexus area (the vital organs) and protecting it which just says he’s not quite comfortable in the situation — who would be with all those photographers around and people like myself analyzing him?”

According to Blanca Cobb, body language expert and author of Method of the Masters, this gesture is Harry’s way of putting his guard up when he’s in public situations (a.k.a. an engagement photo shoot with hundreds of photographers). “Prince Harry’s arm placed across his abdomen serves as a barrier to separate or distance himself from something that he makes him uncomfortable. In this case, it could be having photos taken.” It may also be a way to show others that he’s protecting not only himself, but his loved ones nearby — we’re talking about Ms. Markle, of course.

When Harry isn’t in full-blown protection mode, he’s often spotted tugging at his jacket. It could simply be that his suit is a little snug or he’s trying to get himself camera ready (ahem, he’s royal after all). But Brown begs to differ. “When people tug at their wardrobe, they’re typically uncomfortable and showing a bit of stress.”

This behavior is equivalent to twirling your hair, biting your nails or even, repeatedly tapping your leg. “At that moment, Prince Harry is subconsciously reassuring himself from perceived anxiety or stress,” Cobb told “Given that Prince Harry is commonly seen making this gesture, I believe that he doesn’t even realize that he’s doing it.”

Clearly, no matter how long you’ve been in the spotlight, the media attention is still hard to handle — at least for this Royal Highness.

Princess Diana’s blessing: Harry’s engagement to Meghan Markle would ‘make mum proud’

PRINCESS DIANA would have given Prince Harry her blessing to marry Meghan Markle amid speculation an engagement between the loved up couple is “imminent”, a royal commentator has said.

Richard Fitzwilliams said Harry tying the knot with Meghan, 36 would “fulfil the fondest wish” of the young prince who is keen to make his late mother, the Princess of Wales, “proud”.  And the US actress is “ideally placed to enhance the royal brand” because she immerses herself in “charitable” work and “campaigns for gender inequality”.  Royal watchers believe an engagement announcement is imminent as it is understood Meghan Markle has moved in to Kensington Palace in London with the prince and given a royal protection officer.

And Prince Harry is thought to have commissioned an engagement ring using one of his mother’s favorite pieces of jeweler, it was revealed this weekend. Mr. Fitzwilliam’s told “Harry’s forthcoming marriage will open a new and exciting chapter in the history of the House of Windsor.

“It is already the world’s most high profile royal family and Meghan’s links with show business and activism should mean that the charitable activities of the younger royals enjoy a global profile that is even wider.

“Meghan is placed to help fulfil the fondest wish of both princes, that Diana would be proud of what they achieve to help others.”  His remarks come after Prince Harry and his older brother, William, chose the 20th anniversary year of Princess Diana’s death to begin talking candidly about how they are still grieving.

William was 15-years-old and Harry just 12 when their mother Diana, 36, her lover Dodi Fayed, 42, and their chauffeur Henri Paul were killed when their Mercedes crashed in the Pont de l’Alma tunnel in Paris on August 31, 1997.  Prince Harry has continued his mother’s legacy, raising awareness over Aids and homelessness issues, not only in the UK but around the world.

Earlier this year he travelled to Barbados with singer Rihanna to encourage HIV testing.

Speaking about his mother and her courage at bringing the issues to light, at a time when people were afraid of the disease and the destitute, Prince Harry said: “Thank God for her.”

Mr Fitzwilliams said: “The monarchy seems in safe hands because of the popularity of their grandchildren as well as their remarkable charitable work and the succession is assured.

“The announcement of Prince Harry’s engagement to the divorced American actress and humanitarian activist Meghan Markle seems imminent and this will be accompanied by an avalanche of publicity.”

Rumors are swirling that Harry will propose to his girlfriend Meghan imminently

Meghan Markle has recently spoken out about Prince Harry’s fears she will be hounded the same way the paparazzi harassed his mother Princess Diana. Their relationship, which blossomed after they met two years ago, quickly became so serious Prince Harry, 32, was forced to intervene on the media frenzy which followed. She told Vanity Fair: “I don’t read any press. I haven’t even read press for Suits. The people who are close to me anchor me in knowing who I am. The rest is noise.”

Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Are ENGAGED!

Clarence House has announced, Prince Harry is to marry his girlfriend Meghan Markle. The announcement was: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry apparently got engaged at the beginning of this month in London. And Kensington Palace revealed that the wedding event will happen in spring 2018.

The official announcement said: “His Royal Highness and Ms Markle became engaged in London earlier this month. Prince Harry has informed Her Majesty The Queen and other close members of his family. Prince Harry has also sought and received the blessing of Ms Markle’s parents.

“The wedding will take place in Spring 2018. Further details about the wedding day will be announced in due course.

“His Royal Highness and Ms. Markle became engaged in London earlier this month. Prince Harry has informed Her Majesty The Queen and other close members of his family.

“Prince Harry has also sought and received the blessing of Ms. Markle’s parents.

“The couple will live in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace.”

This afternoon, the couple will pose for photographs at Kensington Palace. And later, they will host on national TV in the UK discuss their engagement. They still didn’t reveal where the ceremony will take place. However, most of the UK royals marry at Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s Cathedral or the chapel at Windsor Castle.

We are not the only ones excited about Prince Harry and Meghan. His brother and Kate Middleton shared of the engagement: ‘We are very excited for Harry and Meghan. It has been wonderful getting to know Meghan and to see how happy she and Harry are together’.

Also, in a Kensington Palace’s statement Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland, Meghan’s parents, said: “We are incredibly happy for Meghan and Harry. Our daughter has always been a kind and loving person.

“To see her union with Harry, who shares the same qualities, is a source of great joy for us as parents.

“We wish them a lifetime of happiness and are very excited for their future together.”

When Harry and Meghan get married, it is said that Meghan Markle will automatically take his title. As Harry is “His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales”, Meghan will be “Her Royal Highness Princess Henry of Wales”. This means she won’t be “Princess Meghan”

“Most likely, he will be created a Duke. Sussex is available so Markle would be HRH the Duchess of Sussex. Her rank would be a princess by marriage of the United Kingdom, Great Britain, and Northern Ireland,”– Royal Historian Marlene Koenig said.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been dating for a year and more. They were introduced to each other in London in July 2016 by their friends. Harry and Meghan made their first public appearance as a couple at the Invictus Games last September.

And after many rumors about their engagement, since they started their relationship, they finally got engaged!

Duchess Of Cambridge Was Excited About Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Engagement

The Duchess of Cambridge said she’s ‘absolutely thrilled’ for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as she stepped out in London a day after her brother-in-law’s engagement announcement.

The pregnant mother-of-two displayed her neat baby bump in a figure-skimming Kate Spade dress, which she offset with burgundy accessories, as she arrived at the Foundling Museum in London.

Discussing Monday’s happy news, the Duchess said: ‘William and I are absolutely thrilled. It’s such exciting news.

‘It’s a really happy time for any couple and we wish them all the best and hope they enjoy this happy moment.

Her appearance comes just hours after Meghan Markle hailed her ‘wonderful’.  Miss Markle said the Duchess of Cambridge had been ‘wonderful’ to her, while Harry said both William and Kate had been ‘amazing’.

Harry talked about how he kept the relationship secret before introducing Miss Markle to his brother and sister-in-law. ‘It was exciting, I mean I’ve – you know, I’d been seeing her for a period of time when I literally didn’t tell anybody at all.

‘And then William was longing to meet her and so was Catherine, so you know, being our neighbours, we managed to get that in a couple of, well, quite a few times now, and Catherine has been absolutely amazing, as has William as well, you know, fantastic support.’

‘The family together have been absolutely, you know, a solid support, and my grandparents as well have been, have been wonderful throughout this whole process, and they’ve known for quite some time,’ he said.

The Duchess of Cambridge was today at the Foundling Hospital, the UK’s first children’s charity and first public art gallery where she learned more about the museum’s history and the way it continues to focus on its founding principles to use art and creativity as a means to support and engage children and vulnerable families.

During her visit, Kate received a briefing on the history of the hospital and how the museum continues to engage vulnerable and marginalised young people.

The 35-year-old met families and children who have benefited from the museum’s education and outreach programmes, including pre-school children from a local nursery who regularly visit the museum and young care leavers who are being trained to run their own creative workshops.

The Foundling Museum explores the history of the Foundling Hospital, the UK’s first children’s charity and first public art gallery. The Foundling Hospital, which continues today as the children’s charity Coram, was established in 1739 by the philanthropist Thomas Coram to care for babies at risk of abandonment.

After 17 years of tireless campaigning, Thomas Coram finally received a Royal Charter from King George II in 1739, enabling him to establish his Foundling Hospital. From 1741 when the first babies were admitted, to 1954 when the last pupil was placed in foster care, the Foundling Hospital cared for and educated around 25,000 children.

Instrumental in helping Coram realise his vision was the artist William Hogarth, who encouraged leading artists of the day to donate work, and George Frideric Handel, who conducted annual benefit concerts in the Hospital’s chapel. Their creative generosity set the template for the ways in which the arts can support philanthropy.

Today artists continue to be central to the Foundling Museum’s work; through a dynamic programme of exhibitions and events the Museum celebrates the ways in which the arts have helped improve children’s lives for over 275 years and aims to inspire everyone to make a positive contribution to society.

Her visit comes after Harry, 33, and Miss Markle, 36, appeared at a photocall at Kensington Palace in London yesterday. Fifth in line to the throne Harry has been dating the American actress – who found fame in the US legal drama Suits – since the summer of last year. Their 16-month whirlwind romance blossomed when they met through mutual friends in London, and the pair have been almost inseparable in recent months. The couple will live together in Harry’s current home, Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace, and Miss Markle will become an HRH and a senior royal. She is expected to become a duchess – just like Kate Middleton did when she became the Duchess of Cambridge after saying her vows in 2011. Miss Markle will most probably become HRH the Duchess of Sussex, if Harry is made the Duke of Sussex by the Queen on the morning of his wedding. The pair were secretly engaged earlier this month, and Harry took Miss Markle to meet his grandmother the Queen for tea at Buckingham Palace in October.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were the surprise stars of Friday night’s Royal Variety Performance show, when Will was cajoled into taking part in a comedy sketch by the show’s host, Miranda Hart.

Kate burst into fits of giggles when the Duke gamely took part in a comedy skit, obligingly shouting the catch-phrase ‘such fun’ whenever Hart requested him to from the stage at the London Palladium.

Sitting in the royal box under a spotlight, the Duke performed his part enthusiastically while the Duchess dissolved into fits of laughter.

Hart said that compelling Prince William to participate in the show was on her to-do list for the Royal Variety duties.

Kate, who is four months pregnant with the couple’s third child, looked stunning in a bespoke Jenny Packham crystal-embellished, full-length blue gown.

After their unexpected participation in the show, the couple enjoyed performances by Paloma Faith, The Killers, Louis Tomlinson, Seal and The Script at the London Palladium.

Rachel Meghan Markle (born August 4, 1981) is an American actress, model, and humanitarian. Since 2011, Markle has portrayed Rachel Zane on the legal drama series Suits. She is also known for her role as special agent Amy Jessup in the sci-fi thriller Fringe. She had previously worked as a freelance calligrapher.

Markle was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. She graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in theater and international studies.

She is engaged to marry Prince Harry of the British royal family. Their engagement was announced on November 27, 2017. Following her engagement, she plans to retire from acting and devote her time to humanitarian causes.

Kate Middleton Reportedly Feels Upset Over Prince Harry And Meghan Markle

A month ago it was announced that Kate Middleton and Prince William are expecting their third baby. And the news about the royal baby definitely got all eyes on the Duchess of Cambridge, especially because she is suffering from severe morning sickness known as hyperemesis gravidarum.

However, according to recent reports, Kate Middleton feels frustrated because Prince Harry and his girlfriend Meghan Markle are allegedly “stealing her limelight”. Reportedly, the Duchess of Cambridge is concerned that the news of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s engagement will overshadow her.

“The Duchess knows that because of her years of experience in Hollywood, Meghan is more media savvy than Kate will ever be,” according to reports from The Daily Star.

“She knows how to work a red carpet and she definitely knows how to pose for a camera in ways that Kate Middleton can only dream of doing herself.

“Forget Queen Elizabeth and Camilla Parker-Bowles. Kate Middleton knows that Meghan Markle will be a real royal threat the moment she officially becomes a member of the British royal family.”

The insider added: “Kate Middleton can get pregnant with ten royal babies, yet the press will still focus on Harry and Meghan and how perfect they are for each other.

“They are young, their romance is fresh and most importantly, they’ve got a bright future ahead of them. In other words, they are the royal family’s new A-list stars.

“And for Kate, that’s what is troubling her right now. She’s no longer the star of the show.”

Kate recently made her first public appearance since announcing her pregnancy, at a reception at Buckingham Palace. The Duchess of Cambridge looked gorgeous in a blue dress at a reception for World Mental Health Day at Buckingham Palace. Some people believe that she gave us a hint about the sex of baby number 3.

The Major Difference Between Kate Middleton And Meghan Markle

The Duchess of Cambridge and the SUITS star Meghan Markle both are up top in the world of fashion for their great dressing sense and their style but there are still some differences between Kate and Meghan.

Kate has always been a part of Royal Circle from her childhood but Meghan is yet to know a lot of things when she gets involved with the Royal Family. Prince Harry has been dating Meghan Markle for quite a long time now and they are in love with each other. It’s not a long time to wait before they get married. Recently Harry met her at the inviticus games and they both were seen laughing and conversing playfully. Harry also kissed her on the cheek at the Inviticus Games.

As the fashion world follows Kate Middleton closely, same is the case with Meghan Markle. The fashion market targets every of her outfit and according to a report, every dress that Meghan wore to Inviticus Games with Harry has already been sold. Looks like Meghan also has a good fashion sense after all.

Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are the two sisters in law that have a small age difference. Kate is currently 35 and Meghan is 36. This reminds us of the famous Royal sisterhood of Princess Diana and Sarah Ferguson. But despite of Sarah’s efforts she was never able to compete with the style and personality of the decent and the most elegant Princess Diana.

“Diana was such a massive fashion icon,” Says Royal photographer Mark Stewart. Fergie, meanwhile, “tried all the top designers, but she was always being compared to Diana.”

Kate has a more low-key look while the dressing and style sense of Meghan seems to be inspired from chic streets of Paris. Kate is more elegant and classy than Meghan Markle as her dressing sense is more decent.

Kate said:

“If your outfit is on point, one thing has to be off for you to look perfect,”

10 years older than Fergie was when she got into the royal spotlight with a well-established career to her credit. Meghan is also at a very different point in her life than the royal members who joined before her.

Says Goodwin:

“Meghan is a natural, and her personality shines through.”

With that being said, this reminds us of the fashion competition between the two sisters in law Diana and Sarah and now in this decade, it seems to be the same competition and the race for fashion between the two sisters in law, The Duchess of Cambridge and the actress Meghan Markle.

Kate is really admired but Britons and they are inspire by her style and glamour. Kate has a decent and more elegant look. She wears classy outfits and her pearl earring add to the beauty of her look and style. Her fashion sense is admired by people across the globe.

On the other hand Meghan Markle has rather a bold sense of dressing as seen from her outfits at several events. She wears more provocative outfits and that doesn’t include decency. Her style is also admired by many followers and fashion geeks. As mentioned before, all the outfits she wore on the Inviticus Games with Prince Harry have already been sold out.


Seems like it’s gonna be a casual and intimate holiday season for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry this year. The actress and the royal have been making the headlines since they were first spotted together in mid-2016, and rumors of a possible engagement have been swirling for the past few weeks. But whether or not the rumors are true, it seems that Meghan and Harry will not be joining the rest of the royal family for the holidays.

This is not a “we’re spending the holidays with my family instead of with yours” kind of situation. Meghan and Harry didn’t diss the prince’s family for the holidays, but the Suits actress can’t join the festivities even if they are engaged as it is an event reserved exclusively for married couples.

As reported by Hollywood Life, “Harry and Meghan’s Christmas plans are up in the air at the moment.”

“Harry always spends Christmas with the Queen and the rest of his family at Sandringham, but only married partners are permitted to attend the festivities, so Meghan isn’t invited.”

Back when Duchess Kate and Prince William were still engaged, Kate wasn’t allowed to attend the event either, deciding to spend the holidays with her family instead.

“But, Meghan hasn’t got any family here in the UK, so she would be left on her own if Harry attended.”

Even though Prince Harry reportedly asked that an exception be made for his girlfriend — possible fiancée — since she doesn’t have any family in England, the request was unfortunately denied. If Harry were to spend the holidays with the queen and the rest of the royal family, Meghan would be left alone during that time.

“Unless there’s a change in protocol, Harry is planning to spend Christmas at home with Meghan, just the two of them.”

The situation has escalated because Harry has always spent the holidays with his family, so now even Harry’s father, Prince Charles, has intervened.

“Prince Charles has promised that he will speak to the Queen and plead Harry’s case, as he really wants both his sons to be with him, but nobody really thinks it will make any difference.”

While the queen is known for making some exceptions and concessions to traditions over the years, it is not expected that she will change her mind on this matter. Christmas seems to be a very important holiday for her and respecting protocol on this occasion seems to be the norm. Maybe Meghan and Harry will spend the holidays with her family instead.

CONGRATULATION! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle be moving into Kensington Palace

Meghan Markle May Be Moving Into Kensington Palace With Prince Harry. After a year and a half of long distance, Meghan Markle may be taking a big step forward with her boyfriend, Prince Harry: A new report says the two are moving in together in London.

Per People: “Markle will live with Harry at his two-bedroom Nottingham Cottage in the grounds of Kensington Palace, where staff already know Markle.”

It’s been well-reported that Markle quit her television show, Suits, and is moving to across the pond. However, it was unclear whether or not she’d be living with her royal beau or if they’d stay in separate quarters for the time being. This, for fervent Harry/Meghan super fans, is the clearest sign yet that the two are destined to be together forever. But don’t start planning your royal wedding attire just yet: Kate Middleton and Prince William lived together for a while before they were engaged.

We know, we know, we hate to put a damper on engagement rumors. There’s so little joy in this world! So, instead, focus on this excellent tidbit: People also says that “Harry has been making subtle changes at home in order to make it more girlfriend-friendly.”

Adorable? Yes. But it also leads us to wonder why exactly Prince Harry needs to girlfriend-proof his place. Has he covered priceless works of art with rugby paraphernalia or something? Is he one of those guys that only has beer and mustard in the fridge? Whatever the reason, he’s in luck—as a former lifestyle blogger, Markle’s surely got some great interior decor tips up her polished sleeve.
