‘Very different’: Princess Anne ‘stoic’ in public & Prince Charles ‘loves solitude’

‘Very different’: Princess Anne ‘stoic’ in public & Prince Charles ‘loves solitude’

Princess Anne and Prince Charles regularly undertake royal duties separately and tend to only be seen together for special occasions. One body language expert has shared how the siblings are “very different”.

Princess Anne and Prince Charles are just two years apart in age, with Charles born in 1948 and Anne in 1950.

It is thought that at a young age, the siblings had a tight bond due to their parents often being away on royal tours.

However, despite the close age gap, one expert has shared how their body language shows they are different from one another.

Speaking to Express.co.uk, body language expert Judi James explained that although rare to see mirroring signals, there are signs that suggest “two very different personalities”.

She said: “It would be unusual to see siblings (apart from twins) to use mirrored body language rituals and signals but when Charles and Anne were children some very strong contrasts were already visible, suggesting two very different personalities. 

“Anne looked confident, adventurous and optimistic and used positioning and engaged, involved rituals to suggest she was at the heart of the family. 

“When she did begin to appear in public by herself her strongest non-verbal bonds were with her father who appeared present in many of her shots.

“Charles, though, had a tendency to sit on the peripherals of the family with poses displaying body language that picked him out as a bit of an outsider.

“His eye expression was often dreamy and reflective and he was rarely seen with a congruent, convincing smile. 

“His body language suggested he found life as complex and difficult as Anne found it easy.”

Princess Anne will often appear solo while Prince Charles tends to appear with wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. 

According to Judi, there are still enough signs to suggest that little has changed from when they were children.

She explained: “Since he married Camilla and she was integrated into the royal Firm, Charles does look more relaxed about life in general and has even begun to showboat again on his royal visits, but he still wears the steepled, puckered brows that give his eye expression such a look of self-pity and bewilderment, as though he still finds the world a puzzling and worrying place. 

“He looks friendly but he also looks like a man who loves solitude and who is never at his happiest than when he is wandering around his gardens in his slightly mystical-looking threadbare long coat.”

However, Princess Royal’s body language signals suggest a more “stoic” and less “analytical view of life”.

Judi added: “Unlike Charles’s puckered brows, hers are often pulled into a frown but with one brow slightly raised to suggest good spirits or good humour. 

“Charles exhibits underlying anxieties by his almost constant self-touch and checking rituals, like his cuff-fiddle and pocket-pat. 

“Anne, on the other hand, appears to have no anxiety or self-comfort rituals, suggesting high levels of inner confidence and fearlessness.”

Although Charles and Anne also have two other siblings, they are the ones often seen more out and about.

Anne will even perform duties on behalf of her mother, Queen Elizabeth.

The expert concluded: “These differences could have been alienating and probably were. There were few if any poses of the brother and sister looking close or sharing any fun over the years and these contrasting traits could have created a lack of empathy between them. 

“Recently though, age and circumstances do appear to have led to more signals of closeness or even rapport between them. 

“With the death of their father and the changes in the top tier of royals both Charles and Anne have stepped up to support their mother and fill the gaps in the Firm. 

“Shared goals and responsibilities might have turned them into a bit of a team at last.”

Roger Federer retirement this year would 'surprise' Andy Murray – 'He still loves it'

Roger Federer retirement this year would 'surprise' Andy Murray - 'He still loves it'

Andy Murray has told tennis fans to stop asking when Roger Federer is going to retire – and instead encourage the Swiss superstar to play as long as possible.

Murray has tipped the 20-time Grand Slam champion to continue into next year and says he’d be “surprised” if he called time on his career in 2021.

Federer, who turns 40 in August, pulled out of the French Open to protect his body after two knee surgeries last year. He will play the grass-court event in Halle this week.

Murray, who is making his comeback at the Cinch Championships at Queen’s Club this week, said: “I have heard quite a few times over the years that he was going to stop and people have been speculating on that different times over.

“I remember when he lost to Tommy Robredo at the US Open (2013), people were talking about that then. I don’t know if that was like eight, nine years ago or something.

“I don’t know whether he’s going to stop playing this year or not. I’d be surprised if he did the way that he is still able to play and compete.

“He seems like he still loves it. He’s been brilliant, and I hope he keeps playing for as long as he can.

“I just don’t quite understand, because I have experienced it myself, this sort of why people want to always ask those questions about when someone is going to finish. Like, he’ll do it when he’s ready.

“I wish everyone would sort of like encourage him to keep going and keep playing as long as he can, as long as his body can do it, because we’ll miss him when it’s over.”

Federer’s male record of 20 Grand Slam singles titles has been equalled by Rafael Nadal – and Novak Djokovic could reach the same mark at Wimbledon after winning the French Open.

Murray, who lost the 2012 Wimbledon final to the Swiss, said: “He’s certainly transcended the sport.

“Yeah, he’s been a great ambassador for tennis and a great role model I think for lots of young players to look up to.

“I had always seen him as like a competitor and someone I was competing against and like a rival. I certainly haven’t achieved anything near like what he has done, but a lot of my career was competing against him in big tournaments and important matches and stuff.

“So I didn’t always look at him as like a role model. But, like, watching him at the French Open and stuff the other day, I was obviously seeing things on social media about it.

“But it’s amazing what he’s still doing and trying to do for, yeah, a sport he clearly loves.”

“It’s hard to do but for me, it comes down to awareness.

“I never saw it, I never knew about it, and then suddenly I started to piece it together and go, ‘Okay, so this is where he went to school, this is what happened, I know this about his life, I also know that is connected to his parents so that means he’s treated me the way he was treated, so how can I change that for my own kids?’

 “And here I am, I moved my whole family to the US, that wasn’t the plan but sometimes you’ve got make decisions and put your family first and put your mental health first,” he finished.

Prince Harry quit working as a senior member of the Royal Family at the beginning of last year.

He has since moved to Los Angeles with his wife Meghan Markle and their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten.

The 42-year-old shared a glamorous close-up portrait of her mum taken three years ago on Instagram.

She wrote: “Mummy you look beautiful in this picture three years ago ❤️❤️ I love you to the moon and back as we say ❤️❤️.”

Amy has a life-limiting lung condition called idopathic pulmonary fibrosis and would be at high risk of serious illness if she was to contract coronavirus.

Katie’s fans noted the similarities between the two and showered Amy with compliments.

One wrote: “Beautiful ❤️ you are your mums double.”

Another posted: “Princess looks like your mum so much! 😍.”

A third said: “You got your looks from her!”

Back in February Katie revealed Amy only had 32 per cent lung capacity and doesn’t have long left to live.

The businesswoman appeared on Northen Ireland’s Nolan Live and revealed her mum’s condition had deteriorated.

Amy, 64, is holding out hope for a lung transplant to prolong her life.

Katie said: “Now she’s on oxygen, it’s hit home again. She’s only got like 32 per cent left of her lung capacity. So if you imagine now being that out of breath, it must be awful, and it’s an awful way to go.

“It’s horrible to see my mum go through it because she’s so active, it’s cruel.”

The mum-of-five said Amy turned to the British Lung Foundation for support and advice and was told to make the most of the time she has left.

Katie continued: “Just build memories, take lots of pictures, that’s all you can do really. You know it’s coming and have to learn to deal with it.”

Amy also opened up about the grim reality of her health condition as she was unable to see her family due to Covid.

She appeared on Good Morning Britain via Zoom alongside Katie from their respective homes, telling hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid that she has “no hope” of surviving if she catches Covid or even a cold.

“I’m very up and down really, to be honest with you,” said Amy. “Obviously it’s terminal and I should imagine I’m in the last couple of years now.

“What with Covid and everything, if I catch a cold or Covid there’s just no hope, so that would be the end of it for me.

“But positively, I’m hoping, I’m pushing to see if I can get on the transplant list.

“Because there is no cure there’s nothing else they can do for me really, it’s just palliative care, they’re just trying to keep me comfortable.”

Amy then admitted that even if she did get a transplant there was not much chance of it being successful because of her age.

“My age is against me and the results are not that good as you get older and you could die in the operating theatre, you could reject (the donated organ)… and if you can get through all of that, you would have a better quality of life and maybe live another two or three years,” she explained.

The grandmother also revealed “it was somewhat of a relief” that she has not seen Katie or much of her family in real life for months.

“I haven’t seen Kate since October, since my birthday, but we’re a lot more closer because we make an effort to keep in contact with Zoom,” Amy said.

What is Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF)?

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a condition in which the lungs become scarred and breathing becomes increasingly difficult.

It’s not clear what causes it, but it usually affects people who are around 70 to 75 years old, and is rare in people under 50.

Several treatments can help reduce the rate at which IPF gets worse, but there’s currently no treatment that can stop or reverse the scarring of the lungs.

The symptoms of IPF tend to develop gradually and get slowly worse over time.

Symptoms include shortness of breath, a persistent dry cough, tiredness, loss of appetite and weight loss, rounded and swollen fingertips.

‘Does her mother know she’s wearing that?’ Olympic champ Duhamel says she LOVES Tuktamysheva, but calls Shcherbakova ‘sickly’

‘Does her mother know she’s wearing that?’ Olympic champ Duhamel says she LOVES Tuktamysheva, but calls Shcherbakova ‘sickly’

With the world figure skating championships just around the corner, former Canadian skater Meagan Duhamel weighed up the Russian trio’s chances to win gold in the ladies’ event in Stockholm.

The 2018 Olympic champion in the team event noted Russia’s dominance in women’s skating, sharing the widespread opinion that it will be the Russians that more than likely vie for gold.

Duhamel expressed her admiration for Elizaveta Tuktamysheva and Alexandra Trusova, whose skating she says is powerful and dynamic – something she couldn’t say about the tournament’s favorite, Anna Shcherbakova, who, she says, looks sickly.

She looks so frail, I can’t enjoy watching her, she looks sickly,” Duhamel said about Shcherbakova, who won the national championship in December.

The two-time world champion added that she prefers more healthy-looking skaters, like Tuktamysheva, who has remained competitive over the years, proving that a figure-skating career can be quite long and successful.

I like Tuktamysheva. She is back at the world championships and she still does a triple axel. All these generations of Russian skaters are dying off and she’s like, ‘no, I’m still here, I’m still here.’

“I don’t care about her lack of choreography, that doesn’t even matter, I appreciate her resiliency, her determination, and her ability to just show up while all these girls drop like flies,” Duhamel said.

She also touched upon the topic of Tuktamysheva’s extravagant, sometimes shocking, style.

I’ve competed with her for many years… she was 14, I was 14, whenever she was at the grand prix circuit for the first time, she was at Skate Canada and she was wearing this miniskirt at the banquet.

“And I walked by and I was like, does her mother know she’s wearing that? That was my introduction to Tuktamysheva.

I love her… She’s real, she loves to skate, she loves it, she’s like a real person, whereas sometimes I don’t think the others are in that sense.

“She’s healthy, she looks healthy, she enjoys skating, she likes to push herself, she likes to train, she likes to compete. She thrives on this, whereas we see some of these other girls just looking so miserable, looking very unhealthy,” the former skater added.

Talking about Russia’s quad-jumping prodigy Duhamel admitted her progress since switching to Evgeni Plushenko noting that her basic skating skills, including footwork and edge quality have improved.

I love her [Trusova] as well… I love her fighting spirit and she’s fearless. I really like her energy… Trusova is strong, like, she has muscles, she’s strong, maybe this is just her natural power on the jumps or maybe it’s something that was enforced through her new coaching change… When she doesn’t skate great, she still seems happy,” she said.

The women will perform short programs on Wednesday, and the medalists will be awarded two days later after the free routines.
