Kate and William ‘share an unmatchable bond’ with ‘complete solidarity’ on Queen anniversary

Kate Middleton and Prince William showed they have an “unmatchable bond” on the first anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s death, a body language expert said.

The Prince and Princess of Wales, both 41, attended a memorial service at St Davids Cathedral, in Pembrokeshire, Wales, on Friday to commemorate the life of the much-loved late monarch – who died peacefully at Balmoral on 8 September last year. Kate paid a subtle and sentimental tribute to the Queen by wearing a pair of the late monarch’s earrings for the visit.

The Royal couple, whose trip was delayed due to foggy weather, were cheered by around 300 well-wishers as they arrived at St Davids Cathedral. And their behaviour at the service showed they had complete ‘solidarity within their relationship’, body language expert Darren Stanton said.

Speaking on behalf of Slingo, Darren added: "The strength in Kate and William’s relationship is displayed through the way they subconsciously mirror each other. You’ll notice that here they are matching and mirroring each other’s gestures, from the way they hold themselves, throwing their shoulders back, to the way they walk in unison and even hold their hands out in front of them.

“Mirroring is a clear indication of the strength of a connection and the deep level of rapport between two people. Such body language suggests that Kate and William share an unmatchable bond and have complete solidarity within their relationship."

Darren went on to say that, although it would have been inappropriate for WIlliam and Kate to be overly affectionate with one another on such an occasion, the Princess showed her support for her husband in a subtle, ‘clever way’ – through prolonged eye contact and smiles.

He said: "We've seen that William and Kate aren’t overly affectionate with no hand holding, and reassuring touches on each other’s arms and backs. This is a part of Royal protocol and it's basically all about the decorum and the nature of this event especially, since it would be seen as disrespectful to the late Queen. It wouldn't be appropriate for them to be over the top with affection.”

Daren added: “The eyes are a window to the soul. Kate and William communicate their feelings through strong eye contact a lot of the time when they can't be as physical with each other.

“Today they will be showing they are there for each other through their prolonged eye gazes and subtle smiles. She'll want to be checking in on how William is feeling, and that is a clever way to do so by reassuring him that she is there 100% for him. She'll also know if he isn't ok by looking at William's facial expressions too."

The Prince and Princess of Wales led the Royal tributes to the Queen on the first anniversary of her death – as several members of The Firm publicly paid their respects to the late monarch’s life of dedicated service.

In a statement released on Instagram, William and Kate said: "Today we remember the extraordinary life and legacy of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth. We all miss you. W & C."

Meanwhile, the Queen’s grandson-in-law Mike Tindall, husband of Princess Anne 's daughter Zara, also delivered a heartfelt tribute to the late monarch – posting a touching black and white video montage of photos from his late Queen’s incredible life and illustrious reign to social media.

And Princess Eugenie, the youngest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, paid tribute to her late grandmother by sharing a never-before-seen picture of them together.
