Royal Family News – Prince Louis given SHOCK comparison to the Queen after Jubilee appearance by body language expert | The Sun

PRINCE Louis has been compared to the Queen as the royal duo do not always "take themselves too seriously" according to a body language expert.

During The Queen's Platinum Jubilee, Prince Louis managed to find a way to steal the show as he "adores being the centre of everyone’s attention".

Body language expert, Judi James, has said that Louis is quite the ‘entertainer’. 

Judi continued: “Louis is clearly the one who adores being the centre of everyone’s attention and the one who loves to entertain and make his family laugh.

"His spontaneity is obvious but so is his popularity and his sociability as he was the one engaging with everyone and even lap-surfing to get cuddles from everyone.

“His signals suggest he will be the royal optimist and the one most likely to encourage change in the Firm as well as ensuring his siblings enjoy their roles by, like the Queen, not always taking themselves too seriously."

    Lilibet’s birthday portrait reveals crucial difference between Kate and Meghan

    Lilibet's brand new birthday photo reveals a crucial difference between Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's approach and that of Kate and Prince William, a royal expert has said.

    There is one important difference between the portraits chosen by the Sussexes and the one the Cambridges recently chose for Prince Louis, Professor Pauline MacLaran has told Express.co.uk.

    Professor MacLaran, co-author of “Royal Fever”, said the disparity depends on who is behind the camera.

    She says that the choice of who snaps the photograph defines the formality that comes across in the photo.

    She added: “A key difference here between the Sussexes and the Cambridges in this instance is the fact that Kate takes the photos to mark her children’s birthdays and they therefore come across as less formal in tone.

    “Lilibet’s photos were taken by a professional photographer, albeit a close friend of the Sussexes."

    It has been claimed by a royal commentator that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are now on the 'b-list', as the Royal Family is "thriving" without them.

    Columnist Nicole Lampert said the royal couple – who quit their royal duties in 2020 – were now "the royal equivalent of the B-list".

    Writing for Newsweek, Ms Lampert said: "But the further away from the crown you are, the colder it is, and Prince Harry and Meghan are practically in Siberia.

    "Even among the ardent royalists outside the Cathedral on Friday cheering the arrivals, there were some who booed this former favoured pair.

    • Prince George: The reflector – Judi explained: “George is clearly in his element watching football with his dad beside him in the role of best buddy and mentor, and watching the pair belting out Sweet Caroline together showed how close they are and how much George idolises and mimics his role model.”
    • Princess Charlotte: The head prefect – Judi said: “Charlotte was quietly and calmly on patrol for the celebrations, showing not just her ability to get all the regal stuff right, but also a trait of checking and correcting her brother’s performances, too.”
    • Prince Louis: The entertainer – Judi describes Louis as an ‘entertainer’. She said: “Louis is clearly the one who adores being the centre of everyone’s attention and the one who loves to entertain and make his family laugh. His spontaneity is obvious but so is his popularity and his sociability as he was the one engaging with everyone and even lap-surfing to get cuddles from everyone.

    Big Issue customer's interaction with Prince William

    Donning a red seller's vest and hat, the Duke of Cambridge was seen dishing out copies of the magazine in Rochester Row, Westminster this week.

    Retired Met Police chief superintendent Matthew Gardner shared photos of William on his Linkedin account.

    He revealed the sweet moment

    He said: "Prince William asked my brother-in-law If he wanted to buy the Big Issue, to which he replied 'I have no change'.

    "At this point William produced a mobile card machine… you cannot teach that!

    "Priceless, or should I say ‘princely’."

    Mr Gardner said: "My brother-in-law was in London today and saw a celebrity, so he took a photo at a distance.

    "The celebrity saw the ‘covert surveillance’ effort and crossed the road to investigate further.

    "What an honour to have a private moment with our future king who was humble and working quietly in the background, helping the most needy.

    "These ‘silent gestures’ often go unrecognised."

    Questions arise whether Meghan and Harry will return to UK

    A royal commentator has once again brought up the question as to whether Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will return to the UK full time, following their visit for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

    Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams said: “It was only over a year ago that they carried out their last royal duties and their strained relations with the Cambridges were on show for the Commonwealth Day Service at Westminster Abbey.

    “Then came their interview on Oprah, which was so destructive and their behaviour, whilst having found freedom as they see it in California, has been unpredictable to put it mildly.

    "Their relations with the Cambridges remain distant. Their popularity ratings in Britain are dire. Harry’s memoir is supposedly due out later this year and there is a reported fly on the wall documentary series for Netflix, though details are unclear.

    "Their future obviously lies in the United States, but with periodic trips to Britain if relations with the royal family improve and if Harry is satisfied with security."

      George Ezra reveals REAL reason song lyrics were changed for Jubilee performance

      Ezra says that appearing at the Queen’s celebration was a bigger deal than he was expecting.

      “The Jubilee is a really good example of something going over my head — the magnitude of it.

      "It was only when we got on stage and I saw all the flags that I realised, ‘Oh, this really is huge’.”

      Ezra played megahit Shotgun and recent single Green Green Grass to the 22,000-strong crowd gathered outside and to the millions viewing at home to celebrate the 96-year-old Queen’s 70 years on the throne.

      But many of Ezra’s fans were outraged that Ezra left out the end of one of his lines that referred to “dying”.

      The lyric: “Green green grass, blue blue sky, you better throw a party on the day that I die” was changed to not cause offence.

      And fans took to social media to complain.

      Ezra says: “I think the reaction to it has kind of worked in our favour to say it was unnecessary.

      "My gut instinct was that you don’t need to change it.

      “I don’t know if it came from the royals or the producers of the show, but it’s pretty obvious that if you’re playing for the Royal Family and the powers that be say, ‘We don’t want you to sing that lyric,’ then you’re not going to argue.”
