Prince Harry 's body language has been deemed "hard to watch" by a body language expert, after he became "visibly emotional" during a call with some WellChild Award winners.
The 38 year old prince appeared on video link yesterday, which was streamed from the office of the Montecito mansion he shares with wife Meghan Markle, 41, and their two children.
He seemed relaxed and at ease during the call as he spoke to a young child as well as the adults there. However, professional body language expert Judi James claimed it was difficult to watch.
Speaking to Express.co.uk, Judi said: "It’s hard to watch Harry here and not regret the fact that he is no longer a member of the royal Firm. He engages so well and shows empathy with the people he is talking to, as well as exposing his own emotions in a very natural way.
"He is especially good with the children, who he mirrors and mimics to create some very natural bonds with, and who he talks to directly and easily, rather than talking over them at their parents."
Judi went on to suggest that the people on the call did not seem "uncomfortable" or "overawed" when speaking to Harry, which she said is "a testament to his ability to avoid any of the distancing or sense of status that can come with being royal."
Referring to Harry speaking directly to the children who have won the awards, Judi said: "Harry becomes visibly emotional during these conversations, which is natural given the bravery of the children.
"He is clearly thinking of his own children as he speaks to them, which must make him even more moved."
She continued: "He tells one ‘You sound just like my son Archie’, suggesting his own role as a parent has been triggered, magnifying the empathy."
Judi also pointed out the subtle changes in Harry's accent, which is starting to sound more American – hardly surprising as he has been in a relationship with California-born Meghan for five years.
She said: "Vocally he still sounds like the usual Harry although there are some words that he pronounces with a US accent."
Words she picked out were "excited", which sounded like "excided", "harder", which became "hurder", and "better", which was pronounced "bedder".
Harry gave a sweet insight into how his and Meghan's two children, Archie, three, and 16 month old Lilibet are doing.
He said: “Archie is very, very busy and Lili is learning to use her voice which is great."
Harry and Meghan quietly returned to the US recently, after spending an extended break in the UK following the death of Harry's grandmother, the Queen, on September 8th.
