Meghan Markle ‘besotted’ during Archie story time, body language expert says

Meghan Markle looked "besotted" during the footage of her reading a children's book to son Archie, a body language expert has said.

Body language guru Judi James said the Duchess of Sussex appeared more relieved after she stepped down from royal duties at the end of March.

Meghan and Prince Harry, who are now living in Los Angeles, shared a glimpse of their family life with son Archie and posted a clip of the tot reading with his proud mum to raise awareness of Save the Children's coronavirus fundraising appeal.

It showed Meghan sitting comfortably in a chair with Archie on her lap as she reads the "Duck! Rabbit!" book to her son.

Speaking in a podcast "Pod Save the Queen", Judi said the way Meghan set up the video shows her acting background.

She said: "She [Meghan Markle] was doing this wonderful idealistic 'reading to my child' in front of the camera, so it's quite actressy, like 'oh we can look at the book, as well as my child'.

"And I think Archie has sensed that 'hang on, somebody is stealing my mum's attention'."

Judi added that Archie's reaction to this is to become more animated.

"When you get such a prosperous actresses and they are given a baby, it starts to speak or play up and they try to smile, I thought she was doing professionally really well but struggling and besotted at the same time," she added.

"It was a good blend."

Although Prince Harry was not seen in the clip, Judi said she could sense the dad was bursting with pride behind the camera and could not contain himself at the end of the reading session.

She said Archie was focusing on Harry and even appeared to say "Da-da" to him.

"I thought he's gonna say 'Da-da' but Meghan stayed well on script and say 'Oh duck and rabbit'," Judi added.

"She turned one around really well but I thought that was cute."
