Prince Harry deliberately ignored Prince William and Kate at the coronation, a body language expert has claimed.
As we watch King Charles’ being crowning, royal experts are on their toes watching and analysing every move of the brothers. It is believed that they have not seen each other since the release of Prince Harry's memoir, 'Spare'.
As the event unfolded today, the duke was seen seated in the third row, sitting alongside his cousin Princess Eugenie's husband, Jack Brooksbank, with whom he had a brief chat with.
He also was seen tapping Princess Beatrice's husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, on the back.
However, there is more to it, as royal body language expert, Judi James, says that he ignored his brother, William.
James was speaking to Paddy Power Bingo, adding that as the King arrived, Harry became 'watchful' and when Charles, Prince William and Kate walked by, Harry turned his head to talk to Edoardo again in what looked like 'an act of rejection or deliberate ignore'.
She said that Harry had seen joking with his cousins with a 'very authentic-looking, rounded-cheek smile or grin'.
All eyes were on the royal party apart from Harry’s, and he was the only person there 'wanting to indulge in a little chat at that moment'.
She said that he instantly turned his face and was seen having an in-depth discussion with Edoardo that included giggling laughter with Harry placing his 'tongue-tip between his teeth before both men did a mirrored closed-lip smile that looked like mutual sympathy'.
James also told the Mirror: "Harry performed what looked like an oddly-times act of ignore or attention diversion as his father, brother and sister-in-law walked in a procession in front of him."
She further added: "Harry was looking up as Charles, William and Kate arrived to walk past but after looking at his father, Harry turned his head to speak to Eduardo again in a very odd way at a crucial point in the ceremony when all eyes and attention were on Charles and William's arrival."
Harry, who has flown to the UK for the event, was then seen getting into a car alone after the event, according to the BBC.
He is believed to be flying back to US and will also not attend the Coronation concert at Windsor Castle tomorrow night (7 May).
As well as his father's coronation, Archie is also turning six-years-old today and the Prince reportedly has plans to get back to the US to celebrate.
As soon as Harry's long-pending confirmation to attend the ceremony came through, King Charles was 'pleased' to confirm his attendance.
