Queen Elizabeth II was buried on Monday by the royal family during a funeral at Westminster Abbey, which was followed by a burial at St George’s Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle outside central London.
Her state funeral was the culmination of ten days of mourning for Her Majesty the Queen following her death on 8 September at the age of 96.
The Queen’s party was attended by dignitaries from around the world, including President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden, but members of the royal family (current and former) were closely monitored as body language experts revealed Meghan Markle was showing signs of ‘breaking up’ and her family had to grieve alone.
Psychiatrist and human behavior expert Dr. Robbie Ludwig explained to Fox News Digital that Meghan looked like “a fish out of water” and may have used costumes as her personal shield by wearing an oversized black hat to help her completely pull out of the blues. Event.
Queen Elizabeth II buried with Prince Philip: King Charles III will hold a private funeral
Prince Harry and Meghan left their royal duties in 2020 and moved to the United States due to what they described as British media interference and racist behavior towards their family.
They have rarely returned to the UK but most recently attended the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June, when they were present for one royal engagement during the five-day event before celebrating the birthday of Lilibit I’s daughter at Frogmore Cottage.

While the Duchess of Sussex was waiting to be seated, she kept her hands intertwined, noting that “she is closed to her environment and trying to comfort herself at the same time”.
Ludwig added: “I don’t think that’s what she expected. Meghan Markle didn’t think about the cause and effect of her actions and how this might hurt her.”
In one photo from the King’s party at Westminster Abbey, Ludwig described Prince Harry’s protective nature over his wife as he seemed to comfort her.
“Harry has to focus on his wife, as his body language indicates holding her hand and bending over to her,” Ludwig said.
“Meghan uses the hat to hide, a completely different style of show than she’s shown in the past. She’s looking down because she feels rejected and she’s out of her element.”
Although Markle may have felt “disapproved”, a royal expert previously told Fox News Digital that he thought Markle had been “really good” over the past week.
“She didn’t appear to be trying to come in and meddle in anything. She basically went and did whatever was needed,” said royal expert Duncan Larcombe, adding that she had won some in the UK.

Meanwhile, Prince Harry has sat behind his father, King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla. Prince William and Kate Middleton were placed across from the row with their two oldest children, Prince George, 9, and Princess Charlotte, 7.
“Harry looks sad about today and one can imagine he feels like a man between two worlds,” Ludwig said. “He’s given up so much and his contemplative face shows pain for everything that’s happened over the years. I don’t think Harry ever expected that his actions would cause this kind of perpetual conflict. If the Queen was his anchor then this family would be lost too.”
As she left the funeral, Meghan walked behind Queen Consort Camilla, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Kate Middleton and Sophie, Countess of Wessex.
Ludwig said Markle’s position was notable as there was “harmony” with the royal family while it was still “dignified but forward-looking, suggesting she is there for now”.
She added: “Meghan with her head tilted downward and covering her face, indicating a sense of shame and sacrifice. There is a feeling that she is upset and uncomfortable. Her body language is indicative of her detachment from other family members and her unease with her. The current situation among working royals. She definitely feels cold and is not Very comfortable about it. It’s like a fish out of water, and it shows.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex remained close to each other throughout the 10-day mourning period and were regularly seen holding hands while greeting mourners or attending engagement parties in the Queen’s honor, an unlikely move for working members of the royal family.
“As we saw throughout this funeral, Harry and Meghan are constantly close and touching whenever possible – they seem like magnets drawn to each other,” said body language expert Tonya Riemann.
I noticed the differences between the two brothers as Harry seemed to be shocked by the shell while William seemed to be agitated throughout the proceedings.
“Throughout the ceremony, you could clearly see that although William was a portrait of what the royal family should convey, he was clearly emotional,” Rayman said.
“This is a moment when you see real sadness on William’s face. Notice his eyebrows rising and tugging together, the lines going down between his eyes and the worry the sadness shows in his forehead.”

Rayman agreed that the newly appointed Princess of Wales relayed the ‘royal face’, saying: “We don’t really know what she feels like with a veil of the face, proper posture and arms on either side. It’s the image of a woman who needs to be strong and hold together.”
She added, “Kate looks so royal. She got into the role of Princess of Wales so smoothly. It’s so easy to see why William fell in love with her. She couldn’t have been more suited to the role or warmer as a mother.”
Royal expert Shannon Spence thought the distance from the Duchess of Sussex was “expected” after years of turmoil from within the family.
“I think the distance we’re seeing between the Duchess of Sussex is to be expected,” Spence told Fox News Digital.
“Over the past two years, she has not held back in the public forum how she feels about the institution and how she feels that she has been treated by her in-laws. The feeling of isolation is palpable and would be natural given everything that has happened.”
