How Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle 'used non-verbal denial' tactic during rift claims

However, the body language expert warned against this kind of behaviour to dispel rumours.

She said: “As an announcement ritual to signal ‘move along, nothing to see here’ to the public these types of set-pieces rarely work as well as they are intended to, mainly because they have been hijacked as a ritual by politicians and actors posing smiling with their wives in a cynical bid to scotch rumours of an affair.

“The public tends to be distrusting, making them a risky tool unless done partly away from the cameras to give a more natural feel, like William and Harry’s recent chat.”

Recently, Kate Middleton and Prince William’s YouTube channel launched, an exciting new move for the Duke and Duchess.

Tottenham backed to keep Harry Kane if Daniel Levy employs strong transfer tactic

This post originally appeared on Daily Express :: Sport Feed

Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp believes the club will keep Harry Kane if he is promised that they will spend big this summer.

Kane’s quest for the first trophy of his senior career was extended after Spurs were beaten 1-0 by Manchester City in yesterday’s Carabao Cup final.

Aymeric Laporte scored the only goal eight minutes from time. It means that Tottenham’s wait for silverware will enter a 14th year.

And various reports have linked Kane with a move at the end of the season, with the striker keen to win trophies.

However, Redknapp feels the 27-year-old may be convinced to remain if the club secure some major signings in the transfer window, even though signing for a top team would ‘guarantee’ him a Premier League title.

“I think he’ll stay. I think the new manager will come in and convince him that they’ll be having a go and signing a few more players,” Redknapp told goal.com.

“There’s nobody better than him. I wouldn’t swap him for any centre-forward in the world, personally.

“He would guarantee Man City, Man Utd or Liverpool winning the league next season, for sure. He’s a fantastic player. Tottenham have to keep him.

“Everything is in place at Tottenham. They’ve got the best stadium in England, bar none. They’ve got an incredible training ground, which is out of this world, and they have good players.

“Okay, maybe they need to shift one or two out who have come to the end of their time, and get one or two in.

“But if they do, anything can happen. They could be right there challenging next season.”

Former Spurs midfielder Ryan Mason took charge of the Carabao Cup final defeat following last Monday’s sacking of Jose Mourinho.

Redknapp was surprised by the timing of Mourinho’s departure, which came just six days before the Wembley showdown.

The 74-year-old has said that the inexperienced Mason, 29, will not be given the job on a permanent basis. Instead, he believes owner Daniel Levy will already have Mourinho’s replacement lined up.

“(Sacking Mourinho) was a really strange one. The timing, for sure. There was talk of Jose going, but I couldn’t see it happening when it did.

“I don’t know what’s gone on, but there’s got to be a reason behind it.

“One thing is for sure, Tottenham will have someone in place already. I know how Daniel Levy works.

“He’ll have spoken to someone, got somebody in place, someone he can’t get at the moment because he’s in a job, so he’s given it to Ryan Mason until the end of the season.

“Then, in the summer, somebody will come in who is already in a job at the moment.

“It won’t be Ryan. He won’t be getting the job, as nice as we can try to be about him.

“He was a young boy when I had him (as a player). He was a very quiet boy. It’s a great opportunity for him, but I wouldn’t say I saw it coming.”

“He’s not a big, outgoing personality, that’s for sure. But I knew him when he was very young.

“It’s a big change to go from working with the kids to suddenly managing a big football club, under all this pressure. It’s a different world, a different game.”

Mikel Arteta discovers tactic for Arsenal to compete with Man Utd, Chelsea and Liverpool

Arsenal have far too often set up to play teams with players significantly weaker than their own, but without a clear game plan on how to get out and win games.

Think back to the 3-0 home defeat against Aston Villa, for example, when they only managed two shots on target despite somewhat dominating possession.

While this isn’t a comparison between Arsenal’s two opponents, it does speak volumes of how they approached both games.

Against Villa, as they have been against far too many teams this season, they seemed to be playing without any purpose.

Against Prague, however, they looked unstoppable even without the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Eddie Nketiah, Gabriel Martinelli and Martin Odegaard in the starting line-up.
