Australian body language expert Louise Mahler analysed footage of Meghan from the scene of the scare and tells New Idea it was indeed a “very tense moment” for the pregnant Duchess.
“Meghan’s mouth is smiling but it is only half of what a genuine smile would normally be.
“A genuine smile is known as a Duchene smile and it needs both the mouth and the muscles under the eyes to be working.
“Here Meghan is only using her mouth to smile.
“She is also reaching on her left side to her hair, which is her ‘tell’ for uncertainty.
“So, yes, she is feeling uneasy,” Louise concludes – and the expert goes even further to suggest that he eyes may be “fixed”.
“I question whether Meghan’s eyes were actually ‘fixed' on a point,” Louise says.
“If so, I would go so far as to say she was terrified.”
