"Given the criticism and rumoured scandals swirling around some of the other members of her family, it's probably no surprise the Queen's body language with Kate here suggests a rather relaxed looking sense of pride and pleasure,” notes James.

In recent weeks, the British royal family has battled intense public scrutiny. ‘eco-conscious’ Prince Harry and Meghan Markle came under fire for travelling via private jet on four separate occasions.
