Body Language Expert Compares Will and Kate’s Relationship to That of Charles and Camilla

Prince William and Kate Middleton may seem like a perfect couple, but are they really compatible? According to body language expert Darren Stanton, the pair have a natural spark that has yet to fade.

In an exclusive interview with PureWow, Stanton explained that he’s analyzed countless photos and videos of the Prince (40) and Princess of Wales (41). And based on his findings, he can confirm that their connection is as genuine as it seems.

“I have analyzed hundreds of hours of footage of Kate Middleton and Prince William over the course of my career,” Stanton told PureWow (on behalf of Betfair Bingo). “And, in terms of the couple’s body language, they are definitely one of the strongest couples—if not the strongest out of all of the royal family.”

He continued, “Although they never initially displayed signs of public affection, there has always been a genuine spark between them. During the early stages of their relationship when Kate would attend William’s polo matches, they had a very mischievous element to their relationship and clearly shared the same sense of humor.”

Stanton confirmed that their “spark” hasn’t faded, adding, “This deep connection and chemistry is something that Kate and William still show today. Despite being together for a number of years, they now appear to be at the epitome of their relationship and well and truly in love.”

The body language expert revealed that Prince William’s attentiveness toward Princess Catherine is reminiscent of his dad, King Charles, and Camilla Parker Bowles. “Simple signals that illustrate this include when William looks out for Kate whilst attending events together, just like his father does with Queen Camilla,” Stanton said. “While Kate’s confidence has grown, it’s clear that he still feels very protective over his wife and will do anything to ensure that she is safe.”
