Prince Harry seemed to be ‘jarred” by Meghan’s mock curtsey, and went into ‘freeze mode’ like Royals do when someone oversteps their mark’, according to a body language expert today.

The bow of the Duchess – which some have criticized as making fun at the Queen and tradition- has been a popular part of the Netflix series.

Judi James, a body analysis expert, says that the section is just as awkward for Harry on screen as it is for her.

She MailOnline: “In a documentary full o the pain, anguish, and open signals of stress prompted her experiences in the UK this moment of “comedy” from Meghan jars in terms that it implies fun or mockery “behind closed door”.

While Harry watches, Meghan seems to be performing a highly exaggerated curtsey about what it was like when first meeting the Queen.

Harry suddenly and dramatically loses touch with the woman that he used to gaze at with complete and unconditional adoration.

‘As Meghan performs her mock bow Harry’s body language goes into freeze mode. His facial expression changes into a poker face when he crosses the line. This is a royal tradition.

“It is the fact that he does not do anything other than watch that is amazing. If one of the couple attempts to crack a joke, the other will often laugh loudly to support. Harry compliments Meghan on this joke, but Meghan doesn’t do it often.

‘Meghan’s comedy pause lasted eight seconds, but Harry only managed a small, hilarious laugh when she rose again.

He added: ‘He [Harry] would know that the bow, as it were, is a brief nod and the curtsey is to show respect for the sovereign, and in the case of the Queen – a lady in her 90s who actually had earned respect through a lifetime of service, and that was it.

Meghan’s account about her first bow Her Majesty also Different from her previous recollection The day.

In 2021 she said in the bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview she ‘didn’t even know how to curtsey’ and was shocked when Harry explained it was expected of her.

‘Right infront of the house, we practiced and ran into. Fergie ran outside and asked, “Does Fergie know how to curtsey?”She recalled.

“It seems that I did a deep curtsey. I don’t remember it. After that, we sat and chatted.

Meghan met the Queen at the Royal Lodge in Windsor shortly after she and the Duke had revealed their relationship in 2016.

After Prince Harry and Meghan announced their relationship, the Queen was the first senior member the Royal Family that Meghan met. 

‘She Harry said that he had no idea what it was all about. He sat with his arm around his wife. It was quite a shock for her.

‘I didn’t know I was going meet her until moments ago. We were driving to the Royal Lodge for lunch and were in the car. [Harry] She was like, “Oh, my grandmother, she’s gonna be there afterwards church.”

“I recall we were in a car, driving and I remember him.” [Harry] Like, “You know how curtsey?” It was a joke, I thought.

The Duke continued: “How do people explain that to you?” How do you explain that your grandmother bows to you? That you would need curtsey to an American, in particular, is what you would need. That’s weird.’

Meghan tells the documentary that she is beginning to understand this is a big deal. Americans will get this. We have a Medieval Times dinner, and a tournament. It was like that. It was like I curtsied like I was… It was a pleasure to meet you, your Majesty.

“It was so intense. Eugenie, Jack and Fergie then said “you did great!” when she left. Thanks. I didn’t know what was happening.

She added, “I was always a hugger and I didn’t realize that that is really jarring to a lot of Brits.”

“I guess I realized very quickly that the formality of the outside was carried on to the inside. 

“There is a forward-facing way to be. Then you close the door, and you feel like (sighs), “Oh great.” We can now relax. But that formality continues on both sides. This was a surprise to me.

The Duchess of Cambridge admitted that her joining the Royal Family was not like The Princess Diaries, as she claimed she didn’t receive any training in royal protocol. 

Meghan spoke of her struggle to adapt to life as an ordinary royal, referring to the 2001 comedy “Coming-of-age” about an American high-school student who discovers she is heir the Genovia throne.

Doria Ragland, who made an appearance in the second episode of Harry & Meghan, a six-part docuseries which dropped on Netflix on Thursday morning, recalled the moment she heard the couple were dating.

Ms Ragland was asked if she can recall the first time she heard about the relationship.

“I began whispering “oh my God !’.’”

Meghan told her mother that she needed to keep their relationship a secret during that first phone call. Ms Ragland continued: “I also remember when I first met Harry (Harry), a 6’1 handsome, red-haired man with great manners.

“It was just really lovely and they looked really happy together. It seemed kinda like a novelty once it was announced that they were married.

She She went on to say that Meghan was a mature and empathic child, and that the Duchess viewed her as a controlling older sister rather than a mom.

The episode featured old footage and photos of Meghan as an infant.

Ms Ragland stated that paparazzi would take photos of poor neighborhoods in Los Angeles to claim that this was where Meghan grew.

Recalling her first Christmas in SandringhamMeghan stated that she found it amazing because she was ‘with big family like I always wanted’. 

Meghan said, “I vividly remember the first Christmas at Sandringham.” “Calling my mom, she’s like “How’s that going?” It’s incredible. It’s like a big, loving family like I had always hoped for.” 

She also recalled a lighter moment with Prince Philip.

During the first days of their relationship, Prince Harry said that the Royal Family was ‘incredibly impressed’ by Meghan.

The Duke also stated that his family believed the relationship with the Suits actress would not last.   

“I remember my family meeting her first and being incredibly impressed. Some of them didn’t know where to start. They were astonished that the ginger could find such a beautiful woman. And she is a very intelligent woman. 

“But the fact that I was dating an American actress was probably what clouded their judgement more than anything else in this beginning: “Oh, her’s an American actress, it won’t last.”

Meghan said that the actress problem was the most difficult. It’s easy for them to typecast a general idea of what it looks like from the UK perspective – Hollywood.

The Duchess of Sussex also said in the third episode that she didn’t know what a Royal Walkabout was – where royals meet members who have gathered on streets – before she went on her first one.

“I have never seen pictures or videos of a walkabout.” She asked, “What’s a walkabout?” She replied.

Harry explained, ‘I could talk her though as much as she knew from my personal experience of what I’d witnessed. The style was the piece I didn’t really understand.

Meghan also mentioned that her zip had broken on her outfit before she went on her first walkabout in Nottingham. Harry replied, “The whole thing was just absurd.”
