Prince Harry’s gesture shows he feels 'superior' to William, body language expert claims

Prince Harry allegedly made several key gestures during his recent TV appearances which indicate he feels "superior" to his brother William.

The Duke of Sussex spoke about the effects of his words as he revealed intimate details about his feelings on royal life in his memoir, Spare.

Body language expert Adrianne Carter said there is one tell-tale gesture Harry does which serves as a nod to his feelings of superiority.

In one interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Harry goes on to explain how his "words are not dangerous, but the spin of my words are very dangerous".

On the moment he speaks about this words being 'spun', Adrianne says: “We see a really strong facial expression of contempt - pursing the lips.

"Contempt means 'I feel superior and I really don’t like what I’m seeing or hearing'."

In another interview with Anderson Cooper for CBS 60 Minutes, Cooper brings up his relationship with Prince William, reading an extract from his memoir, 'Spare', reports The Express.

Cooper says: "You write about a contentious meeting you had with him in 2021.

“You said ‘I looked at Willy, really looked at him, maybe since the first time since we were boys, I took it all in, his familiar scowl which had always been his default in dealings with me, his alarming baldness more advanced than my own’.”

Adrianne goes on to say the Harry's half smile while talking about William''s baldness is another indication of "superiority", saying: "We see a really telling clue from Harry’s facial expression when he talks about William’s baldness - we see the one-sided half smile.

"That means ‘I feel superior, I’m better than’. He’s quite proud of the fact he isn’t as advanced bald as his brother."
