Kate Middleton has ‘two signature moves’ every time she is with Prince William

Kate Middleton uses two signature moves when making public appearances with husband Prince William, a royal expert has claimed.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge recently appeared together to mark the unveiling of their first-ever official royal portrait at the University of Cambridge's Fitzwilliam Museum.

But the event was more than meets the eye for one royal expert, who alleged that the Duchess of Cambridge had two tell-tale signature moves that she would deploy whenever she was on a public engagement trip with husband Will.

The signature moves are said to reveal plenty about "elegant" Middleton and her relationship with Prince William.

Royal expert Judi James revealed: "In the years before he met Kate, William was often seen performing what is known as the fig-leaf pose, with his hands clasped in front of his torso at roughly the same place as a fig leaf would sit on a classical nude statue.

"The gesture is a self-protective barrier ritual that tends to be adopted when a guy feels uncomfortable, shy or defensive.

"It made William look bashful and suggested he felt awkward in front of the press cameras.

"Mirroring signals like-minded thinking and in Kate’s case the way she mimics his pose and makes it look much more elegant and less anxious helps to make William look less defensive or barriered by proxy."

The body language expert also added that the "adoring gaze" appears to be a "leading" move that brings out William's "fun side" during appearances in public.

James continued: "It’s a sign of empathy as well as love and the frequent, subliminal mirroring traits the Cambridge’s use are a subtle but powerful sign of their closeness as partners and strong, like-minded bonds as future monarchs.

"If her hand clasp is a mirroring gesture, this gazing seems to be a 'leading' ritual, aimed at bringing out William’s happier, fun side during their public appearances.

"Kate’s smile acts as a state-changer as she teases him silently into smiling back. During a long day packed with royal visits it would be like a mini energy and mood-booster and it is nearly always met with a coy smile or a grin of pleasure from William."
