Prince Andrew was not seen in public during the Order of Garter ceremony after Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly campaigned to the Queen about his participation. It was reported in the Evening Standard, that William was “so alarmed” at the prospect of Andrew at the event, that he warned he would pull out of the ceremony if his disgraced uncle was allowed to take part.

But body language expert Judi James said Prince William cut a “dour and miserable-looking figure” at the Order of Garter ceremony despite the royals taking a “family decision” to limit Prince Andrew’s appearance to a behind-the-scenes lunch and investiture ceremony.

Judi told the Mirror: “William cut a dour and rather miserable-looking figure at the Garter procession, with his body language suggesting he was almost determined to sustain an unsmiling expression despite the fact that Princess Anne and Charles and Camilla were all smiles and acknowledgement to the crowds.”

Judy continues: “William was walking beside his uncle Edward, who appeared to have been trying to engage him in conversation. “The last time William adopted this low-performance, almost ‘hiding’ look that appears to be trying to repel interest or attention was at the State opening of parliament when he attended with his father but seemed keen not to upstage Charles, who has a famous dislike of being eclipsed by his own relatives.”

She goes on: “William must be aware that he often rates higher in the polls than his father and that he is often described as being the man people would prefer to see as the next king. However this ‘out of the spotlight’ approach seemed to dissolve the minute he was back with Kate and Sophie when he was his usual charming, amusing and relaxed-looking self.

“So why did his mood seem to change so dramatically? His expression in the procession did look deliberate. His lips are clamped and there is some muscle tension around his top lip as well as a pulling down of the corners of the mouth. There is also a muscle bulge creating a rounded effect on the cheeks at the sides of his mouth.

The body language expert also spotted that William kept his head down as he walked saying: “His eyes are also down. He appears to glance up out of necessity to see where he is walking but then he dips his head again each time as though keen to project a serious image while all around him are smiling.”
