Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s engagement couldn’t be any more different than Charles and Diana’s nearly 40 years earlier
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are to wed Saturday.
We looked back at their engagement interview, and realized how different it is from Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s, and even from Prince William and Kate Middleton’s.
Body language experts have noticed that Prince Harry and Markle were more affectionate in their official announcement than the other two couples.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are unlike any royal couple that came before them.
You can tell that right away by watching their first public interview after they announced their engagement.
Prince Charles and Princess Diana often looked tense during their 1981 interview, and Prince William and Kate Middleton barely touched at all when they gave their interview in 2010. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, on the other hand, held hands, giggled, and gazed lovingly into each other’s eyes.
One potential reason for these differences is that Prince Charles and Prince William are much higher in the line of succession to the English throne than Harry, who can act less formally knowing he’s further removed from one day being king.
We took a look at what body language experts have said about the three engagement interviews, and what each couple’s nonverbal cues might convey about their relationship.
