Speaking to the Express, Judi explained: “Hand-holding is a common gesture for most couples in love, but by pulling Harry's left arm out with her free hand and pressing it against her own torso Meghan appeared to be performing a lowering ritual of ingratiation.
“I.e. looking slightly vulnerable by clinging to her prince in a very effective and sensible bid to gain acceptance by the entire country."
James suggests to the publication that the former Suits actress has been employing the subtle 'tactic' since her first public appearance with Harry, and has continued to hold his hand at each engagement the pair attend so as to win public favour.
James added: “Meghan arrived on the UK stage using this rather possessive but also passive gesture during her engagement interview and she continued to use it throughout the start of her relationship with Harry."
