The one big difference between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton when it comes to posing for photos
HAVING your photo taken comes part and parcel with being a Royal.
Meghan Markle has only recently started being snapped at Royal events while Kate Middleton, has become an expert over the last seven years.
As we see more and more of Meghan, it seems there is one striking difference between how the two women pose for photos – Kate never looks directly at the camera, while Meghan tends to look directly down the lens.
But what does the difference in behaviour mean?
According to body language expert Judi James, speaking to Cosmo: “Meghan’s habit of doing what is called ‘camera courting’ (addressing the camera with a direct eye gaze), suggests a desire to communicate openly and confidently in the way that her peers would do via social media and blogs.”
Judi notes that Kate’s relationship with the camera is far more passive.
“She poses beautifully but there is no regular direct communication from her.”
“She always smiles perfectly and she always looks positive.
“There have been no moments when she has been caught by the camera looking moody.”
The expert also added that looking down the lens can be pretty “risky” if you’re having a bad day, but it can make her seem “more accessible” to the public – as it enable us to read her more directly than Kate.
