Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's kiss reveals a lot about their relationship, says a body language expert. Here's what he believes it means and the signs that they're still very much in love.


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are invited to the Queen's Jubilee for a balcony appearance, according to reports, and it looks like we might expect a lot of PDA. That's if their latest public appearances are anything to go by, according to body language expert Darren Stanton. 

Speaking on behalf of Betfair Casino, Darren pointed out that if you wonder if the couple is still in love, just like Betty Everett sang in her famous Shoop Shoop Song, it's in his kiss.

The couple were very hands-on throughout their public appearances at the Invictus Games, and Darren says that indicates a lot. He explains, "it’s clear that Harry and Meghan have no problem demonstrating publicly their affection for one another. At one point, both Harry and Meghan were sat in the audience, Meghan was noticeably enjoying herself and what was very significant is that she had her left hand on Harry’s knee."

The expert added, “He later made the same gesture to her, putting his hand on Meghan’s knee, signifying that the pair appear to be quite comfortable with one another and clearly have a strong relationship."

Although the body language expert points out that this level of comfort, in tactile behavior, isn't usually seen in royal couples he does point out that Prince William and Duchess Kate, "have been known to share public displays of affection during royal engagements.”

Alongside the Sussexes hands-on attitude, Darren also comments on their physical closeness, and how tightly Meghan holds her husband's hand. However, he firmly believes that, "the most significant and important picture, however, is the one of Harry and Meghan kissing on stage."

Just when viewers thought nothing could possibly distract from Meghan Markle's white mini dress and bold red lipstick, there was the kind of smooch that you see in the movies!

“You don’t usually see this kind of intimacy from a Royal couple and it’s clear to see the connection between the pair," explains Darren. "Meghan’s eyes were closed and she was smiling, showing genuine joy and happiness—the same expression is visible on Harry’s face and he and Meghan are touching as they both hold the microphone."
