Body language expert picks up one detail on Princess Catherine’s face that shows she’s ‘nervous’

Before her first public appearance in six months, Catherine, the Princess of Wales shared a message in which she thanked the public for their overwhelming support. “I have been blown away by all the kind messages of support and encouragement,” she wrote among the rest.

Further, the princess addressed her health condition, writing, “I am making good progress, but as anyone going through chemotherapy will know, there are good days and bad days. On those bad days you feel weak, tired and you have to give in to your body resting. But on the good days, when you feel stronger, you want to make the most of feeling well.”

Kate added that her treatment is ongoing and will be for a few more months.

Her attendance at Trooping the Color was announced a day prior to the delight of her many fans.

She wore a white dress and completed her outfit with a white hat, pearl studs, and the Irish Guards Regimental Brooch, reflecting her honorary role.

The princess radiated calm and confidence as she smiled and waved to the cheering crowds, signifying her triumphant return to public life. Despite this, fans argue that there was a certain dose of nervousness in her.

“Kudos she can still walk in those sky high heels. Lovely to see her loyalty to the Crown, but she really must rest and take time out,” one person commented. “It’s great to see her with a classic smile. So beautiful. But her eyes don’t have the usual sparkle. They look tired,” another added.

The observations extended to her children as well, with one fan noting, “I too see the children have matured enormously, you can see it in their behavior, their serious looks, a bit of sadness.” Another person wrote,”The worry about mum will change them and it will make them worry. Only after many years of mum being well they may feel less worry, but just so. I wish them well.”

One person wrote that looking tired and worried is a normal thing when battling this disease. “One can see the sadness in her eyes and in the eyes of her children. I know how this feels because my father got cancer when I was only 11. It mars the rest of your life. Sadly he didn’t make it, but Kate will do so. Cancer treatments are so very much more advanced these days since chemotherapy has become available. It’s the game changer.”

Some of Kate’s fans called for understanding and privacy.

“Yes, her sparkling has dimmed. Now that England and the media can see this LEAVE HER ALONE to recover fully,” someone commented, while another person remarked, “Agree I can see her eyes are not the same — poor lady — so brave like so many others — hope the day goes well for her and she isn’t too exhausted when it is all over.”

“She looks beautiful, and I agree with some others on here that she and the children look pensive, serious maybe. It just looks like they are having a bit of a worrisome period. Which they obviously are, of course. Still, a beautiful family,” was yet another of the comments.

Experts also had a say when it comes to the beloved princess and her appearance at Trooping the Colour. Darren Stanton, a body language expert, observed that Catherine’s initial demeanor set the tone for the annual royal event, which she has regularly attended since joining the royal family in 2011.

As of her relationship with her husband and the beautiful photo of the two looking at each others eyes at the balcony of the palace, Stanton noted that the princess was employing a “masking smile,” describing it as her “game face.” “She’s using this as a way to power through and do the best she can. Her composure appears calm and collected on the outside,” he wrote and added that her smile didn’t seem to be genuine. “Internally, she’s feeling a sense of wanting to make people proud, but she is also feeling nervous – which is understandable,” the expert wrote.

He also stated that Kate’s reserved demeanor was in support of the fact that the day was about King Charles.

Communication specialist Judi James also commented on Kate and William’s photo and stated that their interaction gave a touching glimpse into their joy at being reunited on the global stage.

We are so glad the princess is back and hope to see more of her in the days to come.
