A body language specialist says Prince Harry was ‘out of step with the others surrounding him’ when he twisted and bowed his body as he entered Westminster Abbey for his father’s Coronation, as per Daily Mail.
Carole Railton noted that his uncomfortable entry into King Charles III’s ceremony was a “sure sign” he was “on his own” and “with his own thinking.”

He then went forward and began to smile brightly, indicating that he was more at ease.
The expert went on to say that the man’s hand gripping the edge of his jacket might be a sign that he needs a “small hug” to help him relax before what is sure to be a difficult reunion with his family.
In addition, Carole noted that Harry’s torso was twisted and turned, which was a “unusual pose” and something we “do not normally see with the royals.”
In order to take his seat in the third row before his father and the future queen Camilla arrived, the 38-year-old Duke of Sussex was had to walk down the aisle by himself.

He had been seen laughing and smiling as he entered the royal church alongside Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice and their respective husbands Jack Brooksbank and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. He was wearing medals pinned to his suit jacket.
Before it was revealed that Harry had arrived in the UK on a commercial American Airlines flight on Friday morning, he had been missing for more than 24 hours and his travel arrangements were kept under wraps.
It follows today’s news that the King’s youngest son, who was scheduled to spend the night at Frogmore Cottage, has been invited to eat at Buckingham Palace tonight after the reverent service.
The Duke is scheduled to return to California quickly to reunite with his wife Meghan Markle in time to celebrate their son Archie’s fourth birthday, thus it is unknown at this time if he will accept the invitation.

Many will view the invitation as Charles extending an olive branch after Harry’s incendiary memoir Spare left several members of the Royal Family inconsolable, most notably his brother Prince William.
In the abbey for the ceremony, Harry, who is fifth in line to the throne, was reduced to the third row.
Between Princess Eugenie’s husband Jack Brooksbank and Princess Alexandra, the late Queen’s cousin who hasn’t performed any official duties in ten years, he is sitting. Princess Andrew’s daughters Eugenie, 33, and Beatrice, 34, together with her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, will join them.
The Duke of York, who stopped using the title “His Royal Highness” in official capacities in January 2022, was seated in the third row, opposite Harry. He was dressed in his garter robe.
Today it was revealed that the Duke had flown into the UK on a commercial airline on Friday morning, shocking the passengers.
American Airlines flight AA136 brought the King’s son to London Heathrow yesterday at 11.23 a.m. from Los Angeles.
According to sources this week, Harry will be “in and out of the UK in 24 hours.” After the two-hour ceremony, he intends to return immediately so that he can celebrate Archie’s fourth birthday with Meghan Markle.

After his father made the decision to evict him and his American wife just a few days after the publication of his memoir Spare, he was anticipated to spend one last evening there last night.
Since Harry and Andrew are no longer employed as working royals, it was widely anticipated that the Palace will clarify this morning that they will only attend the historic Coronation Ceremony as spectators.
The Gold State Coach that will transport the newly crowned King and Queen to the Palace following the ceremony will not have the two men accompany it.
It also means they won’t be able to take advantage of the customary photo opportunity after the service by going out onto the Palace’s balcony.
