Meghan Markle was keen to emulate the late Queen Elizabeth II during her first television appearance since her and Prince Harry’s bombshell Oprah interview, according to a body language expert.
The Duchess of Sussex was featured on the Global Citizen Vax Live: A Concert to Reunite the World event back in 2021.
Body language expert Judi James claimed that Meghan’s appearance on the show, which came as she was pregnant with Princess Lilibet, showed her display signs of nerves.

Meghan was giving a speech about Covid-19 vaccinations and her hopes for the future as James admitted she gave it in the “style of the Queen”.
Speaking to the Mirror, Judi said: "Meghan’s body language at the start looked as serene and static as the large cushion beside her, but with a small self-comfort thumb-rub gesture to suggest some inner nerves, too.
"Hers was a floral-clad, maternal-looking charisma, low on passionate gesticulation and high on kind smiles and bump-cupping.
"The regal note appeared verbally too as she sat, upright and elegant, to refer to ‘My husband and I’ in the style of the Queen, but that cupping gesture that she had also used on Oprah, reminded us of her theme about daughters and woman of the future."

Meghan spoke on the show about the negative impact the Covid-19 pandemic has had on women across the world.
She said: “As campaign chairs of Vax Live, my husband and I believe it's critical that our recovery prioritises the health, safety and success of everyone – and particularly women, who have been disproportionately affected by this pandemic.”
Meghan explained: “Women, and especially women of colour, have seen a generation of economic gain wiped out by the pandemic.”
