Diana still ‘plays a very important part’ in harry’s life
A body language expert has analysed Prince Harry’s reactions when he was asked about his late mother Diana, Princess of Wales, during his Today interview which aired on Wednesday.
Speaking on behalf of Slingo, body language expert Darren Stanton said: “During his interview with Today, when he was discussing his mother Princess Diana, Harry displayed a very sudden change in his emotions. He is someone that is very in tune with his feelings and we immediately saw his body language shift.
“For the majority of the interview, Harry appeared reserved, his body language was closed and he displayed gestures of self-reassurance – a sign that he was uneasy and uncomfortable to share too much detail when discussing his private life at home with Meghan and their kids and his relationships with other members of the Royal family.
“However, speaking about Diana there is a warmness about Harry. As he heard Diana’s name, Harry dropped his head down and his eyebrows came together, we saw flashes of sadness across his face – his microexpressions alluding to his true state of mind.
“Even though he lost his mother over 25 years ago, the feelings he has are clearly still incredibly raw. This was visible when Harry was told by the reporter that Diana would be proud of him. Harry’s voice broke slightly and his pitch went up as he agreed, responding: ‘I’m sure she is proud of me.’
“It’s clear Harry still loves her very much and she still plays a very important part in his life.”
