Kate Middleton and Prince William will often attend royal engagements together. Just this week, they were spotted making a number of visits in East London.

The Duchess of Cambridge mostly stayed out of the public eye before she married.

But after the couple wed – on April 29, 2011 – she took on a working role in the Royal Family.

Since then, Kate has carried out engagements both by herself, with other royals and with Prince William.

The pair have made many royal outings together, but their body language could show a shift in their relationship.

Speaking to Express.co.uk, body language expert Judi James explained they have become a power couple.

The royals’ apparent new approach to their royal position may have come as Kate’s confidence has improved.

“The couple’s body language does seem to define them as a true royal power couple,” she said.

“As we saw Kate grow from an ordinary, non-royal girl to future queen the sense of approachability has always been implied.

“Kate seems to have moved out of the ‘royal wife’ role and looked happier appearing as an individual appearing as herself.

“Kate’s confidence signals have grown since the birth of Louis and now she appears to be slightly in the lead, taking cheers from crowds in her own right.”

While in the Royal Family, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have often veered away from showing too much public affection.

More recent outings, however, may have given them the chance to show a romantic side.

The expert added: “It’s their facial expressions as well as their mirroring and their intense and mutual attention rituals with one another that suggest they are also presenting as romantic royals as well.

“Kate’s excited eye expression and her wide, dimpled smile suggests genuine, congruent pleasure at being in her husband’s company.

“His beaming and at times slightly shy smile plus his softened features do suggest he’s very happily in love.”

When the Cambridges stepped out this week, Judi explained there were also visible signs of public affection.

She said: “William and Kate have always defined the depth of their rapport and like-minded intimacy as a couple via their body language echoing.

“Here, whether they are both gazing wistfully at a display of pastries or both walking with their hands in a partial clasp in front of their torsos, that non-verbal bonding looks very strongly in place.

“There’s a ‘Harry and Meghan’ residue here too, in the way that the Cambridge’s appear more relaxed about their PDAs, with Kate touching William on the back and some rather flirtatious eye contact between them.”
