Meghan Markle on ‘defensive’ and showing ‘signs of anger’ in latest interview


Meghan Markle showed signs of ‘bewilderment’ with clear hints of anger as she remained on the defensive during a women’s summit interview, claims a body language expert.The Duchess of Sussex opted for a ‘sit down’ conversation with Fortune editor-in-chief Ellen McGirt at Tuesday’s Most Powerful Women summit rather than giving a talk.

She insisted it was “not controversial” – although she was criticized last week for a video urging Americans to vote – and said that “what ends up being inflammatory is is people’s interpretation ”.

During the video interview, body language expert Judi James said Meghan featured a ‘slightly defensive’ display with a ‘misunderstood tone’ – making comparisons to her interview with Tom Bradby last year.

“Meghan is having a blast on her sofa with her shirt sleeves rolled up to suggest that she wants to get down to business and, as she puts it, to be ‘authentic’ here,” Ms. James continued.

The flaring and pit-baring looks confident and softly powerful, as does the slicked back gesture with her hair, while the very subtle lower jaw and a few crisp, accelerated blinks suggest some anger, although her overall tone signals bewilderment. of a woman who tells us that she has not been controversial in what she has said in the past.

“Meghan again emphasizes her emotional side with the mention of tears and as she looks away considerably to consider her thoughts as she speaks, it is the shaking of her head that suggests a feeling of bewilderment or incredulity. “

The Duchess spoke about tackling toxic behavior

The Duchess, speaking at the summit virtually from the £ 11million mansion she and Prince Harry bought in May, said the couple were throwing themselves into the fight against hate speech and toxic behavior online .

She said allowing bullying and disinformation on social media is “not sustainable” and must be addressed.

The Duke and Duchess have called on advertisers to boycott networks, including Facebook, which allow hate speech.

“If the changes that are underway are actually being made, it is for the good of everyone, Facebook included,” Meghan said.
