Parents Prince William & Kate Middleton Were ‘In Sync’ with Princess Charlotte, According to Body Language Expert

Princess Charlotte stole the show during this week’s royal outing. Luckily, her parents—Prince William and Kate Middleton—handled her silly behavior like total champs.

Yesterday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge brought their daughter to the 2022 Commonwealth Games. After analyzing photos of the royal family in the wild, body language expert Darren Stanton shared fascinating details about Prince William and Middleton’s parenting style.

“Seeing Prince William and Kate Middleton with Princess Charlotte in the crowds of the Commonwealth Games demonstrates the kind of parents they intend to be both at home and during their official duties,” he told PureWow.

Stanton also applauded their attentiveness toward Princess Charlotte. “Throughout their appearance, Kate Middleton and Prince William are seen with their bodies turned inwards towards Charlotte, with the youngster in between them—demonstrating how she is their main priority and their children come first,” the expert explained.

He continued, “We also saw Kate Middleton and Prince William matching and mirroring each other with their body language and gestures, proving not just how deep their connection is romantically but how in sync they are as parents too.”

Stanton noted how both Prince William and Middleton lean over while talking to Princess Charlotte. “We often saw Kate Middleton and Prince William bending down to match Charlotte’s height as they interact with her—a clear sign of the deep rapport they share with her as a parent and the strong bonds they have as a family,” he said (on behalf of Slingo).
