MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry are morphing into the new “John and Yoko” in their post-royal life, a body language expert has claimed.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped down as senior royals in March and have now adopted a “global harmony” lifestyle, says Judi James.
Meghan, 39, spoke to activist and feminist Gloria Steinem, 86, in a chat that was aired in full last night on Makers.
Judi said the mum-of-one, who is now living in a £11m Santa Barbara mansion, gave off “bohemian” body language in her poses and outfit during the conversation.
Speaking to Fabulous, Judi said: “With Meghan and Harry going further down what looks like the John and Yoko’ power-couple-for-global-harmony’ route, Meghan’s emphatically casual, bohemian styling here and her free-wheeling body language place her as firmly away from royal traditions and restrictions as possible.
“The woman who we once watched struggling with rules like crossing her legs at her ankles and which side to place her clutch purse is now sitting with one leg bent casually up on her chair when she’s not mirroring the body language of her hero Gloria.”
For the chat, Meghan ditched the tailored skirts and formal blazers that she wore during royal engagements, and looked relaxed in a £298 Janessa Leona straw hat and Stella McCartney open-toe sandals.
Judi said: “The sharp pillbox hats or fascinators have been swapped for a wide-brimmed sun hat of the type that Gloria Steinem might well have sported back in the days of flower power and free love.
“The wide, unstructured pants and sandals make a statement against all the restrictive pencil skirts and tailoring Meghan wore on royal duties.”
During the chat, Meghan told Gloria that it is “good to be home for so many reasons”, after leaving the UK for Hollywood.
Judi observed: “Meghan appears to have taken that statement to heart here, as well as channeling the ‘Finding Freedom’ title of the recent book about her experiences.
“Sitting with the famous feminist she looks keen to show that she now has all the freedom that she craved while she was in the UK.
"She also leaves the ‘happy to have left’ comment hanging in the air with a ‘for so many reasons’ and a knowing smile to suggest she’s being tactful but a nod to suggest Gloria gets it."
The pair chatted about feminism in the candid interview, published in Yahoo, as the former actress praised Gloria for “everything you’ve accomplished”.
Meghan said: “It’s just such a fantastic way to see the breadth of your life thus far and everything you’ve accomplished, but also understanding where you come from and how you became a feminist.
“As I’ve gotten older I’ve been able to understand that it’s not mutually exclusive to be a feminist and be feminine.
“And to own that and harness your femininity and your identification as a woman in all of the different layers.”
Gloria pointed out you can be “feminist and be masculine and a guy”, prompting Meghan to use Prince Harry, 35, as an example.
She gushed: “Like my husband! I love that when he just came in he said, ‘You know that I’m a feminist too, right Gloria?! It’s really important to me that you know that.’”
The pair also chatted about voting, with Gloria saying: “If you don’t vote you don’t exist. It’s the only place where we are all equal: in the voting booth.”
The two women said socially distanced in wooden chairs in a garden, believed to be Meghan’s, as her two dogs, Guy, a beagle, and Pula, black lab, wandered into the frame.
A one minute 41 second video black-and-white clip was teased on social media, ahead of the release of the full interview yesterday.
