Prince Harry made a surprise appearance at the recent Coronation ceremony of his father, King Charles III, at Westminster Abbey in the UK. However, despite showing his support for his father, the Duke of Sussex appeared to have a poignant moment of sadness during the procession.
According to body language expert Darren Stanton, who analyzed Prince Harry’s behavior during the event, the prince displayed moments of pride towards his father during the ceremony. However, as King Charles passed by him during the procession, Prince Harry appeared to show signs of sadness in his facial expressions.
Stanton noted that Prince Harry’s position in the third row during the ceremony may have contributed to his feelings of nostalgia and being on the outside looking in. He observed that the prince appeared slightly out of sync with others and made pacifying gestures, such as adjusting his sleeves, in a bid to reassure himself.
Despite Prince Harry’s sadness during the procession, he made a point to attend the historic event and show his support for his father. The Duke of Sussex flew in specially for the ceremony on May 5 but was relegated to the third row and excluded from key moments like the Coronation Procession and the Buckingham Palace balcony appearance.
The body language expert’s observations have sparked discussion on social media, with many expressing sympathy towards Prince Harry and admiration for his efforts to attend the ceremony despite his strained relationship with the royal family.
