Meghan Markle is worried about her safety and that of her unborn child following the security alert in Fiji.
Hundreds of people packed into the market for a glimpse of the 37-year-old who is married to Prince Harry. Last week, the couple announced they are having their first baby in April, 2019.
The couple are now in Tonga and while they may look more relaxed, Australian body language expert Louise Mahler analysed footage of Meghan from the scene of the scare in Fiji and says it was a “very tense moment” for the pregnant Duchess.
“Meghan’s mouth is smiling but it is only half of what a genuine smile would normally be.
“A genuine smile is known as a Duchene smile and it needs both the mouth and the muscles under the eyes to be working.
"Here Meghan is only using her mouth to smile.
“She is also reaching on her left side to her hair, which is her ‘tell’ for uncertainty.
“So, yes, she is feeling uneasy,” Louise concludes – and the expert goes even further to suggest that he eyes may be “fixed”.
“I question whether Meghan’s eyes were actually ‘fixed' on a point,” Louise says.
“If so, I would go so far as to say she was terrified.”
Sources close to the royals say Meghan has asked her security team to keep close by since the incident in Suva, and that she is worried she might get knocked to the ground if there's too many royal fans following her.
While there are currently no plans for her to return to the UK, it's thought extra security will be flown in for Prince Harry and Meghan's return to Sydney later this week. They will be attending the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games.
In Sydney Meghan scaled back her royal engagements after she becoming 'tired' following the long 24-hour journey from the UK and a packed few days of engagements.
