Meghan Markle is a natural at the whole royals thing.
The soon-to-be duchess attended her first official engagement alongside Queen Elizabeth on Monday for a Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey. She was joined by Princes Harry and William, the Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.
According to royals and body language experts, with just two months to go before her wedding to Harry, the American-born actress fit in seamlessly with the royal family ― and even knew all the words to “God Save the Queen.”
“Her posture showed confidence, her eye contact with the other royals means she’s on their level, and her newly polished look suggests she’s embracing both the British culture and the position,” Meier added.
Though there was little direct interaction with Her Majesty, Markle hit all the right marks during her entrance into the church, said Traci Brown, a body language expert and author of Persuasion Point: Body Language and Speech for Influence.
In one photo, Markle is the only one without her hands guarding her torso area ― a common self-soothing behavior many people default to in high-pressure situations, according to Brown. (Prince Harry went viral the last time he pulled the move at an event with first lady Melania Trump.)
