The last two years have been a real whirlwind for Meghan Markle, who went from American royalty (aka a famous celebrity) to literal British royalty. While I've spent a lot of the last two years thinking about how her life has changed, I haven't really considered how it has changed her — because how could it not? Over a fairly quick period of time, she fell in love, moved to another country, and became one of the most famous faces on the entire planet. You can see those effects in how Meghan Markle’s body language has changed in photos of her from before she met Harry in July 2016, to their engagement in November 2017, to their fairy tale wedding in May 2018, and through their current regular appearances as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
If you go back to when Markle was being photographed on the red carpet, it's clear she has always appeared both poised and confident in front of the camera. These are traits she hasn't lost in recent images, and yet there is definitely still a visible evolution in her body language from her starlet days to the present. To help pinpoint how she has changed and what these differences in body language mean, I reached out to the experts. Here is what they see in Markle's body language over the years.
