AS we are sure most moms will agree, it’s always a little nerve-wracking to take your kids to a formal event – because honestly, we can never say when they’re going to have a total tantrum out of nowhere.
So before Prince George’s Wimbledon debut today, you would think that Kate Middleton and Prince William would be anxious about how their eldest son would behave.
But according to body language expert Judi James, the opposite is true.
Analyzing the Cambridge family’s arrival at Center Court this afternoon, Judi says Kate seemed completely “confident” that her son would get through all the “royal rituals”.
She explained: “George is already such a big fan of one of his father’s favorite sports, football, and William has already immersed his son in all the joys of the game, so it must have been a special treat for Kate to introduce him to him. tennis here, and the way she uses body language to steer and encourage her son through what was a royal look as well as an exciting watch, shows skill and subtlety. “
The Duchess – who is Wimbledon’s royal patron – gently placed her arm on George’s shoulder as he shook hands with a security guard.
The mother-of-three then walked to President Ian Hewitt – who bowed to the future King.
Judi said: “Kate uses a series of continuous tie signs, ie small touches, to help show him through his greetings and handshakes.
“She beats him gently to let him know when to move forward and mimic her own greetings and it seems like she’s helping to encourage a little talk between George and their hosts.
“Her ray of extreme pride as she looked down on George let everyone, including him, know of her confidence in her son to get all the rituals right.
“This is probably also one of the most important aspects of her parenting. Although she is happy to encourage and reward her son with the loving touch, there are no glances of anxiety or any excessive incentive to compromise his confidence.
“William and Kate seem to understand the need to be tangible and supportive, but without any kind of signs of overcautiousness that can make a child feel nervous or cautious.
“Kate even leaned over to her son with an arm around his back to make him feel like an equal.”
After greeting other staff members at Center Court, Prince William – who had arrived earlier – came to welcome his son and wife to the championships.
The expert added: “It’s so rewarding to see George move straight to his father for a hug too, and the way William moves straight to Kate for the second hug to make them feel like a close family unit and lyk. “
Wondering why Prince George is wearing a suit to the Wimbledon final? Well, it’s apparently all part of Kate Middleton’s “plan” to help him understand his future as king.
