Meghan Markle went “on the defensive” and showed signs of “bewilderment and anger” in her latest interview, a body language expert has claimed.
The Duchess took part in sit down talk with Fortune editor Ellen McGlirt during Tuesday’s Most Powerful Women Summit where she insisted she is “not controversial”.
The 39-year-old came under fire last week along with her husband Prince Harry for a video where the pair urged Americans to vote.
But Meghan claimed that “what ends up being inflammatory is people’s interpretation” during the chat, which took place with the Duchess sat on a sofa with her sleeves rolled up.
Body language expert Judie James has now claimed that Meghan put on a “slightly defensive” display with a “misunderstood tone”, The Mirror reports.
Ms James said there were some subtle indicators that the Duchess of Sussex wanted to portray an “authentic” tone.
She explained: “Meghan splays out on her sofa with her shirt sleeves rolled up to suggest she wants to get down to business and, as she says, be ‘authentic’ here.
"The splaying and pit-baring looks confident and gently powerful, as does the preen gesture with her hair, while the very subtle lower jaw-jut and a few sharp, accelerated blinks hint at some anger, although her tone overall signals bewilderment from a woman who tells us she has not been controversial in what she says in the past.

"Meghan emphasizes her emotional side again with the mention of tears and as she looks away dramatically to consider her thoughts as she speaks it is the shaking of her head that suggests a sense of bewilderment or disbelief."
Speaking from the Sussexes’ new £11m mansion, Meghan said the royal couple were throwing themselves into tackling toxic online behaviour.
She said that it is “not sustainable” to allow bullying and misinformation to spread online and that it must be dealt with.
The couple have previously called on advertisers to boycott social media platforms such as Facebook, which have allowed hate speech in the past.
Meghan said: "If the changes that are being made are in fact made, it’s for the good of everyone, Facebook included.”
