A body language expert has revealed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s “tells” from part two of the Netflix documentaries released on Thursday morning.
While the first volume of ‘Harry & Meghan’ showed Harry signs of ‘nervousness’ and ’embarrassment’, in the second half the Duke is showing more ‘frustration and anger’, according to body language expert Darren Stanton – known as ‘the’ Human Lie Detector ‘ by British media, according to his bio.
“At one point in the documentary, Harry talks about a tense meeting with William, Charles and the Queen. Harry flashed an obvious look of anger. It’s clear that he still feels very frustrated and upset when he thinks back to the situation,” Stanton told The Post on behalf of online gambling platform Betfair Bingo.
Before talking further about Queen Elizabeth, Harry rubbed his right hand on his knee in a gesture of reassurance. His eyes were lowered and his demeanor changed from “a feeling of anger to sadness.”
Stanton said the duke was clearly conflicted about stepping behind royal duties.
“Overall, Harry showed a combination of stress and anger in the clip. It’s clear that he wanted to give up his royal duties, but also wanted to remain loyal to the Queen and his father. He was being pulled in directions and trying to do his best for his family,” Stanton explained.
“From his face, Harry is not a man who is very good at hiding stress or worry. I think he was deeply affected by the whole situation,” he continued.
As Harry spoke about the negative press surrounding Markle, Harry leaned back in the chair with his shoulders back as far as possible and his arms outstretched – in what Stanton describes as a “defiance gesture”.
“Someone often accepts this gesture when they are firmly attached to their beliefs or determined to make their point. His tone also showed that he was confident in what he was saying,” he said.
Harry later showed signs of anger when speaking about how his late mother, Princess Diana, was treated.
“He’s extremely passionate about and caring for his family, which shows in his body language. He sees massive parallels between Meghan and his mother and clearly wants to protect the person he loves the most,” Stanton said.
As for Markle, she seemed to show a “soft side” — an aspect she doesn’t want to reveal to the public.
“It’s clear that she fully supports Harry since she allowed him to have the conversation. She continued to show sympathy and empathy, which further underscored that she is totally okay with her husband,” Stanton said.
Though Markle showed her full support for her husband, Stanton said she also seemed mildly upset and frustrated by the issue.
The former British police officer also described a “real sense of urgency” on the Duke and Duchess’ faces as they left Canada, particularly when they spoke in a low voice – as if they didn’t want to be heard.
“The couple were obviously panicking about leaving Canada, where they felt exposed,” Stanton said.
“The fact that Harry called it a ‘free flight’ really explains his mindset at the time. He viewed it very much as a game of cat and mouse, which was a time-sensitive operation,” Stanton continued. “In the rest of the documentary, he seems much calmer and more relaxed than he did in the plane scene. It’s been a very turbulent time for Harry and Meghan.”
The body language expert said the royal couple were clearly tired and stressed – and even Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland, had shown empathy.
Harry and Markle appeared “very much in love” as they discussed starting a family, becoming parents and Markle’s pregnancy. In particular, when Harry mentioned wanting to be a father, Markle’s voice lowered, indicating a shift in feelings from happiness to empathy.

“It’s obvious that Harry always wanted the family he never really had after losing his mother and parents’ divorce. The couple clearly wants it,” Stanton said.
