New photos of the Queen have emerged and show her grandson, Prince William, stepping into the shoes of the late Prince Philip, by offering support to Her Majesty.
- A body language expert has analyzed new photos of the Queen and Prince William, taken when they stepped out together in Scotland this week.
- Judi James explains how William appears to have stepped into the shoes of the late Prince Philip in showing touching support for Her Majesty, seeming to echo the Duke of Edinburgh's mannerisms in showing love and respect for the monarch.
- This royal news comes after it was reported that Princess Diana once "boldly confronted" Camilla to demand her husband back.
Her Majesty was accompanied by her grandson and heir to the throne, Prince William, as she stepped out for a special royal engagement in Scotland this week.
The monarch and the Duke of Cambridge arrived at the Palace of Holyroodhouse for the traditional Ceremony of the Keys, during which the Lord Provost of Edinburgh presented the keys of the City to the Queen.
Her Majesty and Prince William were also given a grand tour of the Irn Bru factory to get an insight into the behind-the-scenes workings of Scotland's most iconic beverage.
Body language expert Judi James analyzed the new photos of the Queen and Prince William during their sweet outing as a duo, pointing out just how much Prince William is echoing the way the Queen's late husband used to support her in her work.
The Queen once famously described the Duke of Edinburgh as her "strength and stay" but lost her husband when he passed away at Windsor Castle in April, months before his 100th birthday.
Following reports that leading members of The Firm have rallied around the Queen in a bid to support her in the absence of Philip, Judi has pointed out just how much William's nature mirrors his grandfather's, when it comes to standing by the monarch.
"William’s trait of clasping his hands in front of his torso is very close in signalling to Philip’s signature hands-behind-his-back rituals," Judi says.
"His poses are more reminiscent of the very dashing Prince Philip as he accompanied the Queen years before."
Judi also highlights how Prince William, who is set to take the throne at Buckingham Palace after Prince Charles, clearly has incredible respect for his grandmother, always seemingly acknowledging her power and regality of the 95-year-old sovereign.
"So many families re-align their pecking order as the grandchildren grow up and the grandparents age and become frail but that is clearly not an option here as the Queen appears to be making no concessions to her age, while William looks genuinely respectful, polite and full of loving admiration as he walks behind her," she adds.
"The Queen is clearly still the boss of the Firm for William and his respectful body language help to boost his grandmother’s regal charisma.
"The pair clearly do love each other’s company and the very special bond they have as current and future monarchs," Judi says, going on to commend the Queen for continuing to exhibit the incredible nature she is known and loved for, even after the recent death of Philip.
"There’s something very poignant and sweet seeing this 96 year old woman who has been through what must be one of the worst years of her life still emerge as stoic, powerful and even as fun as usual."
