Commenting on their outings as a family, body language expert Darren Stanton stated Sophie appears “strong” when in public.
He said: “I think it’s clear from many of the pictures that Sophie is the strongest member of her family.
“Prince Edward has his hands in his pockets which of course could just be that his hands are cold, however this could also signify a lack of confidence in his surroundings.”
As well as seeming confident with her family, the expert claimed this personality trait seeps into her parenting style.
Darren stated this is obvious in a picture featuring Sophie and Lady Louise.
He continued: “This is a really nice genuine shot of Sophie displaying a genuine smile to a daughter.
“Even though she is aware of the fact that the moment has been caught by camera, she is not phased.
“Clearly she is a very strong personality and does not care about the cameras snapping pictures.”
“Sophie’s approach in public appears to be very hands-off.
“She often walks slightly ahead with an air of upbeat determination that should make her a role model for both her husband and her children.
“There are no signs of any fussing or anxiety.
“Although she would be more tactile when they were younger, as the children have grown bigger she seems keen to allow them to be treated more as adults, joining in any fun like one of them.”
The royal line of succession – who outranks who?
The line of succession to the British throne dictates the order in which each member of the Royal Family would ascend to the throne.
It is also seen as a ranking of importance with the head of the line, the Queen, taking the place of ruler.
Older children come before younger children. Traditionally boys came before girls, but this law was changed on March 26, 2015 before the birth of Prince William’s first child.
Incredibly, Catholics are still excluded from the line of succession, as are children born outside of wedlock.
The royals, who usually stick to a strict protocol when appearing in public, often arrive at events in ascending order of importance, with the most important royal arriving last.
Prince Charles, 72, is currently first-in-line to the British throne, followed by Prince William, 39, his oldest son.
Then comes Prince William’s children, George, seven, Charlotte, six, and Louis, three, and they are followed by Prince Harry, 36. Prince Harry is succeeded by his son Archie Harrison, born in May 2019.
