If you were too busy watching the Chiefs beat the 49ers on Feb. 2 to tune into the 73rd British Academy Film Awards, you're welcome in advance — because I come bearing a full analysis of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s BAFTAs 2020 body language. The royal couple was in attendance at the star-studded event, and luckily for all of their adoring fans who may have missed it, photographers managed to snag plenty of pictures of them making their way down the red carpet. In addition to providing fans with even more pictures of them looking glamorous as ever, the photographers were also able to provide the public with a lot of insight into what the royal couple's dynamic was like that night.
"Overall they don't seem really lovey-dovey here," Traci Brown, body language expert and author of Persuasion Point: Body Language and Speech for Influence, says of their body language at the event after examining the photos. That being said, she also notes "they don't seem overly strained, either." Brown believes their confusing body language can be chalked up to two possible explanations: "My thought is that they are [either] under some sort of protocol about how they can act or it's not their best time together as a couple." (Of course, the royal family tends to avoid PDA in public — there literally is protocol about how they can act with their partners.) Itching for more intel? Check out Brown's thoughts on five separate pictures of them from the BAFTAs red carpet below.
