Princess Kate reminds Queen Camilla about ‘royal hierarchy’ with subtle move
Kate Middleton attends Remembrance Sunday service alongside Queen Camilla
Princess Kate appeared to remind Queen Camilla about the royal hierarchy with a subtle move during today’s memorial service for Remembrance Sunday, a body language expert has claimed.
Both the Princess of Wales and the Queen appeared on the balcony of the Foreign Office to watch the service at the Cenotaph in Central London.
The royals wore elegant black coats which they paired with colour-matching hats and pearl jewellery.
Body language expert Judi James said the two women seemed like a “strong” team as they stood together and “presented visibly as status equals”.
She told the Mirror: “Standing apart, almost at either end of the royal balcony and without Sophie present to create the usual trio of royal brides, Camilla and Kate presented visibly as status equals here.

“Their poses looked similar and their almost matching, wide-brimmed hats were both pitched at exactly the same angle, with this mirroring giving the impression of a strong team of two as they looked down on their husbands laying their wreaths.”
The body language expert added that Prince William’s wife “sustained a very solemn facial expression” while Camilla adopted a “‘beatific’ smile which is a gesture associated with calm, quiet happiness.”
But James noted there was a special moment near the end of the service, where it looked like Kate reminded Camilla about hierarchy in a sweet way.
She explained: “There was a moment at the end of the service when both women seemed to define the way that the late Queen’s death has left them still needing small royal hierarchical reminders or cues.

“Camilla turned her head towards the interior but it seemed to need Kate to say ‘after you’ as she turned in the same direction.
“Camilla threw her wide, affectionate smile of what looked like gratitude as the two women stepped elegantly inside.”
