Camilla ‘happy’ for Prince Charles to take ‘centre stage’ in public, says expert

Despite being overshadowed in the past by Princess Diana and his two sons, Prince Charles is 'the star of the show' with Camilla 'happy for him to lead', claims a body language expert.

The couple regularly attend their duties as senior royals together, but Camilla won't become Queen when her husband ascends to the throne. As was announced when they married, Camilla will be known as Princess Consort.

Although the future Princess Consort often carries out visits with or without her husband, body language expert Judi James reckons Prince Charles will remain centre stage, reports the Express.

She said: “It very clear who is the star of the show and the prime performer. We might have forgotten about Charles’s love of stage performances but at university he often looked happiest when he was performing.

“This love of the spotlight became suppressed in later years, when he was competing first with Diana and then with two far more charismatic sons, but now with Camilla he appears in some moments to be loving every minute of the public attention.

“Camilla is a body language enabler of this trait as she is always more than happy to step back and attract minimum attention.”

The expert explained that when walking together, Charles will often be a few steps ahead.

“When they pose close together then we can see some mirroring with the mutual hunching and hand clasps, but when Charles warms to his performance… he can do so confidently, knowing he is not about to be upstaged by the woman who is probably his greatest fan,” she continued.

“[Camilla] looks perfectly happy to have her husband take centre stage and to take her lead from him rather than raising her profile or stepping out of his shadow."

Ms James continued that this decision by Camilla defines the "complementary relationship" between the pair, and although it may not work for everyone, it works for the Prince of Wales and the Duchess.

She added that "intimate signals" are usually reserved for birthdays, anniversaries and special occasions where royal fans are given a glimpse of a more openly "fond" bond.

Judi says Camilla "relaxes" and switches from her formal royal role.

When Prince Charles proposed to Camilla in 2005 he presented the Duchess with a gorgeous engagement ring.

A study by jewellery retailers EST1897 recently revealed some of the most expensive engagement rings in the Royal Family.

According to EST1897 Camilla’s five-carat engagement ring, which once belonged to the Queen Mother, is now worth an estimated £100,000.

It's been a year like no other for the Queen from the loss of her husband to heartache over Prince Harry.
