Prince Harry appears to be struggling with pressure while wife Meghan Markle is embracing it, a body language expert believes.
Judi James watched on as the Duke and Duchess made one of their final appearance as senior royals at the Mountbatten Festival of Music at the Royal Albert Hall in South Kensington.
Meghan, 38, flaunted a red gown while Harry wore his Duke of Sussex's uniform.
But Ms James claimed the occasion was a telling indicator on their approach to the limelight, thanks to their body language.
She said Meghan was "embracing" public attention, but Harry appeared to be stifled by it.
Ms James told Mirror Online : "Red is the colour of extreme passions, from love right through to anger.

"It is also the colour of Harry’s uniform, meaning the duo have repeated their look of a tight, co-ordinated team of two here.
"Meghan’s choice of dress for one of her last appearances in the UK has to be seen as a version of non-verbal signalling as the message is so emphatic.
"This is not a sign of someone shying away from the public attention or spotlight, it suggests someone who is embracing it fully and with pride.
"The statuesque styling looks like a power statement as it closely mirrors the recent looks worn by the First Lady of America, Melania Trump and Meghan’s body language reflects that mood of star status, confidence and resilience.

"Harry looks like a man in a hurry, striding out ahead as he leads his wife by the hand, Meghan’s backward tilted posture looks straight off a runway as she smiles to engage with the crowds and her hosts.
"Harry’s forehead looks shiny with what looks like sweat, suggesting some tension, and his rounded, reflective eye expression, his clasped hands, and his finger-fiddling gesture hint at mounting pressure.
"Meghan looks like a woman who is taking it all in her stride but he is beginning to look as though he might be struggling."
The couple sensationally announced they were stepping down at the start of the year.
They have since moved to Canada, and said they were working towards becoming "financially independent".
