King Charles has secret signal for when hes bored, says body language expert

A body language expert dubbed the 'human lie detector' has picked up on the secret signal King Charles uses to tell royal staff he is bored of a conversation.

The monarch has attended countless royal events down the years, meeting people from all over the world from all different walks of life.

Inevitably, not all of those meetings will be as fascinating as others. Hence, Charles appears to have developed a system for letting those around him know he wants to be moved on – and his mother, the Queen, did similarly.

Body language expert and former cop Darren Stanton has provided analysis on popular shows including This Morning and Judge Rinder.

Just as the late Queen would make a gesture to her staff to get her out of a situation, Mr Stanton claimed Charles can be spotted reaching for his nose when he wants a conversation to come to an end.

Speaking on behalf of Betfair Casino, he said: “[A] move Charles tends to make quite a lot is he’ll scratch his nose.

“Just like with the Queen, she had a signal with her assistants, that if she had her handbag in her left hand and then switched it to her right, that meant ‘get me out of here’ — Charles tends to reach for his nose when he is ready to move on from a conversation.”

According to royal historian Hugo Vickers, the Royal Family will often tell a joke to bring a conversation to a close.

Speaking to People in 2011, he said: “What they all do [the Royal Family] is try to find a quick joke to leave it on. [King] Charles has a quick ‘ha ha’ and that enables him to break the conversation.”

When it comes to Charles' other gestures, Mr Stanton explained that most are associated with his lack of confidence – with the King supposedly getting “a little stressed” when he cannot see his wife.

He said: “Little key indicators are when he plays with his cufflinks or with the cuffs on his shirt and jacket. These are what are called ‘pacifying gestures’, which are things we do when trying to self-reassure ourselves.

“However, King Charles has evolved a bit over the years, he has become more confident in himself, especially since becoming King, so we tend to see these gestures less and less.”
