The once more withdrawn Duchess has come into her own during her career in the Royal Family. She has taken on patronages and launched her own initiative for young children’s mental health.
This clever body language trick is not unique to Kate. A lot of powerful and charismatic individuals use it.
“This rather personalized greeting forms the same kind of connections to individuals standing in a large group as techniques used by high charismatics like the Clintons when they are working a crowd,” Judi claimed.
“Bill always goes one step further by pointing into the crowd and waving as though he has spotted a friend.
“This gesture, like Kate’s wave, can create instant bonds by breaking down the ‘them and us’ feel when a crowd watches someone famous or high status.”
“Her fingers became more splayed and instead of an air of gracious condescension we got a much more friendly-looking greeting signal, with the palm display suggesting openness rather than distance,” Judi said.
The expert, on the other hand, called Meghan Markle’s wave “sweet, cute and tentative.”
“Meghan’s wave was an important signal when she first joined the Royal Family,” Judi said.
“As a successful US actress and campaigner, there were some worries that she might appear a little too grand for the Royal Family or their fans.”
