MEGHAN Markle showed "clear signs of anger" during a recent women's summit interview with Fortune editor Ellen McGirt, claims a body language expert.
The Duchess of Sussex , 39, spoke at Fortune's Most Powerful Women Summit by video link, opting for a "sit-down" chat at the £10k-a-head event on Tuesday.

In the chat, Meghan – who has come under fire over her use of private jets while promoting environmental causes in the past – insisted she is "not controversial" and said "what ends up being inflammatory is people's interpretation".
Body language expert Judi James told Mirror Online that Meghan put on a "slightly defensive" display during Tuesday's summit, adding that she spoke with a "misunderstood tone".
Judi explained that "splaying out" on the sofa with her shirt sleeves pulled up is an indication that she "wants to get down to business" while trying to be "authentic".
She said: "The splaying and pit-baring looks confident and gently powerful, as does the preen gesture with her hair, while the very subtle lower jaw-jut and a few sharp, accelerated blinks hint at some anger, although her tone overall signals bewilderment from a woman who tells us she has not been controversial in what she says in the past"
Judi also added that Meghan "emphasizes her emotional side again" with the mention of tears.
What's more, the act of Meghan looking away dramatically to consider her thoughts and the shaking of her head suggests "a sense of bewilderment or disbelief."
The Duchess spoke at the virtual summit from the Santa Monica mansion she and Prince Harry bought last month.
Meghan also spoke about the Sussexes' non-profit organisation Archewell, which she said aims to "ensure that we are helping foster healthy positive communities – online and off".
She said: "To see how you are propagating hate, whether passively or actively; to see how you are clicking on things that are contributing to an industry that is really toxic for so many of us, especially as parents.
"And when you know something is wrong, reporting it, it, talking about it, ensuring that the facts are getting out there. I think that is one clear tangible thing that everyone could be doing."
