November 16, 2010 and February 24, 1981 have two very important things in common: both were days that heirs to the British Monarchy announced their engagements — Prince Charles to Diana Spencer and Prince William to Kate Middleton. Sadly, that’s pretty much all those two days had in common. Why? Because of one glaring difference between the couples: Prince William and Kate Middleton are clearly in love, while Prince Charles and Diana clearly were not.
Body Language Reveals All
Words can be deceiving — we can lie about our feelings about something or someone, but our body language will always show the truth.
“Watching a couple’s body language can tell you if they have a toxic or terrific relationship,” said world-renowned body language expert Dr. Lillian Glass, author of ” Toxic Men.”
And she should know: Dr. Glass has testified for both state and federal cases on the subject of body language and is now the resident body language expert for “The Nancy Grace Show,” “Dancing with the Stars” and “Entertainment Tonight,” among others.
Engagement Announcements Show Clear Connections and Clear Misconnections
If only we would have known then what we know now. Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s televised engagement interview was an awkward array of relationship insecurity, according to Dr. Glass
“Their body language indicated that their relationship was toxic,” Dr. Glass said. ” Both Charles and Diana look down, signifying disconnection.”
What’s worse is that notoriously-shy Diana looked terrified.
“As she walked down the steps, Diana appeared awkward and clumsy. She also rocked back and forth throughout the interview, appearing uncomfortable,” Dr. Glass continued. “Diana only looks up to speak and there is nervousness in her voice.”
Prince Charles didn’t seem to notice — or care — about his bride-to-be’s feelings.
“Charles didn’t even look at Diana! He only glances at her occasionally and it’s not with love and affection,” she said. “[He] stammered and doesn’t seem to know what to say.”
The video clip is sad to watch, especially knowing what occurred during — and after — their ill-fated marriage.
“This couple looked like two complete strangers thrown together,” Dr. Glass said. “You don’t feel a connection at all. These toxic body language signals are red flags for any relationship.”
Prince William and Kate Middleton: Clearly Love
Luckily, the exact opposite can be said of Prince William and Kate Middleton televised engagement interview.
“William and Kate are best friends,” Dr. Glass said “Their body language shows respect, love, and a solid foundation. They exhibit perfect, non-toxic body language.”
She seems to be right on the money. Prince William and Kate Middleton have been together — on and off — for eight years. Middleton is seemingly a smart, confident and professional woman — it’s not likely she would be pushed into anything. Prince William, for his part, seems to be a compassionate gentleman — not a dominant, arrogant playboy.
“William is charming and seems to enjoy telling the story of the proposal,” Dr. Glass said. “He looked at Kate with love and acknowledgement and they looked at each other.”
She goes on to say that Kate is confident enough to become a proper princess.
“Kate is poised, elegant, and articulate. She looks ready to be royalty,” Dr. Glass said.
The biggest indicator of their solid future? Their appetites for fun.
“They have a life together,” she said. “William mentioned that he and Kate were on vacation with friends when he proposed.”
Time will tell if Dr. Glass’ observations are true. Until then, let’s enjoy their royal engagement — it’s looking like it’ll turn out to be a real-life fairy tale!
