Judi said: “It’s interesting to see this very charismatic couple blend into the background of this pose, upstaged by their small son Archie.”
Given the nature of the image, the body language expert believes the candid image was unplanned.
“This probably was quite a traditional Xmas line-up initially but it’s clear that when a more spontaneous and quite funny moment occurred the result suited Harry and Meghan’s taste for a cool, stylish, fashion magazine look much better,” she said.
There are a number of clues that give Britons and insight into Harry and Meghan’s psyche, the expert claims.

This includes selecting a black and white image, a look the couple are fond of using on their Instagram account also.
Judi said: “By using a monochrome shot they showed their desire for change and modernisation, bucking the trend for more colourful cards at Christmas.”
However, there is also a suggestion that the couple are enjoying their time away from the rest of the Royal Family.
Judi said: “With them sitting lovingly and casually together on the floor and with their eyes on their son rather than the camera we are also seeing a message of a family of three who are totally bound up in their love for one another.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Christmas card: Pair are spending the holiday in Canada
“It’s good to see them looking happy after their emotional TV documentary but they also suggest a narrative of a family who would be happiest spending time alone together.”
Harry and Meghan have notably decided to spend this Christmas in Canada, instead of with the rest of the Royal Family at Sandringham.
They spent Christmas at Sandringham with the Queen, Kate Middleton, Prince William and others last year, and the year before.
However, some have suggested the pair ought to stay in the UK this year, given Prince Philip’s advancing age and recent hospital admission.
Who is Meghan Markle? Quick profile
Meghan Markle was born Rachel Meghan Markle, on August 4, 1981 to parents Doria Ragland and father Thomas Markle.
Her father was previously married to Roslyn Loveless and Meghan has two elder half sibling – sister Samantha Markle and brother Thomas Markle Junior.
Meghan’s first television appearance in the USA was in an episode of the medical drama General Hospital in 2002.
She later moved on to roles in CSI, Without a Trace and Castle along with bit parts in Hollywood films including Get Him to the Greek, Remember Me and Horrible Bosses.
Meghan was also a “briefcase girl” on Deal or No Deal – but her most famous role was as Rachel Zane in legal drama Suits, which launched in 2011.
She was written out in the finale of the seventh series when her character got married, which aired in April 2018 – just before she got married herself.
Charity and humanitarian work
Meghan Markle’s career in television has gone hand-in-hand with her support for causes close to her heart.
She wrote about the stigma around menstrual health in an article for Time magazine and was a Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada – with whom she travelled to Rwanda for the charity’s Clean Water Campaign.
And her commitment to gender equality has seen her work with the United Nations – receiving a standing ovation in 2015 for her speech to mark International Women’s Day.
In September 2011, she wed film producer Trevor Engelson, who she began dating in 2004.
But the pair divorced two years later in August 2013, citing irreconcilable difference.
She was in a relationship with celebrity chef Cory Vitiello for almost two years, before they broke it off in 2016 but the two remain good friends.
And in June 2016, she met Prince Harry on a blind date set up by a mutual friend.
Their relationship began in October that year and just over one year later, on November 27, 2017, the pair announced their engagement.
They married on May 19, 2018 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.
Some have claimed Meghan Markle is the first mixed-race member of the Royal Family.
Historians are still arguing about Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III.
But Meghan will be the first royal to openly embrace a mixed-race heritage.
She has written about the difficulties of being a biracial actress in Hollywood as she claims she is not black enough for some roles and not white enough for others.
