By Staff

The Princess of Wales has shared a “private moment” with the general public, a body language expert has told the Daily Mirror, ahead of her expected Trooping the Colour appearance

The Princess of Waleshas shared a “newfound confidence” with subtle body language in new picture, an expert has claimed.

The royal, 42, confirmed in a statement released this evening that she is “not out of the woods” as she continues to receive treatment for an undisclosed cancer. In the statement, the royal said she has “good days and bad days” as she gave Britons unprecedented insight into her progress, with Kensington Palace adding that she is “expected” to attend the Trooping the Colour celebrations this weekend.

The statement was accompanied by a stunning photograph of the royal, who can be seen posing under a tree and looking wistfully into its canopy. Speaking to the Mirror, body language expert Judi James said the snap indicated a sense of “confiding into the public” as she shares “vulnerability and privacy” with millions of Britons.

Ms James said: “There’s a sense of confiding in the public here – the two barrier gestures of the folded arms and crossed legs are also new for Kate and they imply an intriguing blend of vulnerability and privacy with a hint of a new-found type of confidence. Her arms are lightly folded in a pose that is often adopted by professional people to hint at authority.

“Her smile reveals a similar sentiment. It’s not her usual perfect royal smile. With the lips closed it suggests calm serene happiness that is inner, rather than projected.” The Princess has shared similar sentiments in her official statement, telling the public about the days in which she struggles, and those in which she still finds “joy” in her life and is able to do some work.

She said: “On those bad days you feel weak, tired and you have to give in to your body resting. On the days I feel well enough, it is a joy to engage with school life, spend personal time on the things that give me energy and positivity, as well as starting to do a little work from home.”

Speaking about what the photograph may suggest about her working life, Ms James said that the way she is dressed suggests she is “taking things slowly”. She said: “With the jeans and trainers this seems to be a Kate who is still taking things slowly in terms of her return to royal life.”
