Body language expert reveals Prince Harry’s “secret signal” during his meeting with Melania Trump

It’s reasonable to suppose that Prince Harry has had numerous celebrity encounters in his lifetime. Yes, he is a member of the Royal Family, thus in a technical sense he is one himself, but as a working member he “stood above” all but a very small number of prominent people in the world, with celebrities customarily addressing Harry as “Your Royal Highness.” Naturally, since the Duke is no longer a working royal, things have changed.

Harry has participated in numerous projects that have introduced him to a wide range of well-known individuals. He even had an encounter with a First Lady a few years prior, meeting Melania Trump during the 2017 Invictus Games opening ceremony in Toronto.

The lives of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in the US and the UK are very different from one another. The Sussexes are free to go on any and all adventures they like because they have no royal responsibilities. The pair signed multiple multi-million dollar contracts with Netflix and Spotify shortly after their royal exodus.

Harry also published Spare, his candid memoir. Although they have had a lot of fresh opportunities since moving to the US, Donald Trump is one person in particular who has made it known that he does not want Harry to stay. In the event that the prince wins the election, the former president has even threatened to have him deported from the US. According to accounts, their history dates back a number of years.

Let’s go back to Harry’s initial encounter with Melania, which seemed to go well from all reports. Harry, a working royal at the time, met Melania in 2017 prior to going to the Invictus Games opening ceremony in Toronto. In the process, he became the first member of the Royal Family to meet a Trump since the 2016 Presidential Election.

Before the Duke had to go to attend another appointment, Melania and Harry had around thirty minutes together in a room at the Sheraton Hotel. In addition to their quick chat, the two had their photos shot. Naturally, there was one aspect of the picture that startled some royal admirers. Was Harry flashing the demonic sign?

The Duke has his hand partially tucked into his jacket in the photo of Melania and Harry. Theories about Harry developing “devil horns” circulated online as a result of his pinky and index finger protruding. According to reports, the emblem was used to fend off evil spirits as early as the Middle Ages.

conspiracy theorists regarding that period Twitter went crazy, believing that Harry was standing next to Melania and flashing the devil’s sign. However, a number of body language specialists disagree.

Patti Wood, for instance, claimed in a body language interview with the Huffington Post that people were misinterpreting Harry’s gesture.

The gesture could have different implications, even though she insisted it wasn’t the devil horns. Patti Wood stated, “This is known as the horn or the devil’s horn, and what people are saying about it in the media is not accurate.” It is a warning against bad spirits rather than an indication that he is the devil. It is an act of defence against sickness, evil, and darkness.

According to the body language expert, placing one hand on the tummy could be seen as a sign of comfort for oneself. Wood continued by explaining that other international leaders who have been seen with Donald Trump have made the same motion.

“I’ve observed international leaders with Trump during photo ops, and I notice a lot of what are known as self-comfort indicators. I would classify this as one of those. Although it resembles the devil’s horn, Wood also said, “It is hand to belly.” It would, at the absolute least, be a comfort cue that would convey a great deal of anxiety and a need to shield his central core.

Joe Navarro, a different specialist in body language, clarified that Harry’s relatively peculiar hand placement could indicate a variety of things. But none of them are associated with the devil. Had they lingered too long, the photographers? Is there another issue at hand? Navarro stated

Was he about to unbutton his jacket before deciding against it, I have to wonder? Was he getting about to sit when they asked him to get back up to take more pictures? I don’t think the picture allows for too many conclusions to be drawn. Personally, I wouldn’t take that to mean too much.
