Prince Harrys surprise admission about William and Kate revealed – Express

Last month, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex not only became parents of a beautiful baby boy, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, but also celebrated their first wedding anniversary. For the occasion, the couple shared some never-before-seen photos from their royal wedding on their official Instagram account, Sussex Royal. The couple wed in a lavish ceremony at Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018.

When asked the day before the nuptials if he was nervous, the Prince reportedly told members of the crowds he was feeling “great”.

However, according to body language experts, when Harry first emerged from their car his short walk was peppered with over a dozen self-touches, which normally suggests anxiety or nerves.

Body language expert Judi James told Harper’s Bazaar last year that Harry was “understandably nervous and emotional”.

According to a 2012 interview with US journalist and TV personality Katie Couric, the Prince was also incredibly nervous at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding, to the point the entire thing was a “blur” to him.

Ms Couric asked the now Duke of Sussex: “I heard there was this small intimate wedding at Westminster Abbey…

“You said you were as nervous as your brother at the time?”

Prince Harry replied: “I was massively nervous.

“Everyone was nervous.

“The whole thing was a bit of blur to be honest.

“There was god know how many billions of eyes on us, luckily many on those two.”

Around 23 million viewers watched Prince William and Kate’s wedding in 2011, but this was later beaten by Prince Harry’s own ceremony, which was watched by 29.2 million people.

Meghan Markle was reportedly the only Royal Family member who showed “no nerves” the day of her nuptials.

According to Ms James, the Duchess of Sussex “was the strength” of her wedding ceremony to Prince Harry, as her body language showed she was constantly reassuring Prince Harry.

Despite the experience being completely new for Meghan, she did not display a single sign of anxiety or nervousness – while her new husband “was so patently nervous”.

Despite the nerves Harry had on the day of his brother’s wedding, he showed no sign of them when delivering a rousing speech on the memorable day. 

Royal author Katie Nicholl, in her 2017 biography “Harry: Life, Loss, and Love” takes a look at his good-natured speech.

Ms Nicholl writes: “Famous for his mimicry, Harry impersonated his brother calling Kate ‘Babykins’, to much laughter from the guests.”

The prince also reportedly said: “William didn’t have a romantic bone in his body before he met Kate, so I knew it was serious when William suddenly started cooing down the phone at Kate.”

However, Ms Nicholl reveals that Chelsy Davy, Harry’s girlfriend at the time, made him cut out another more risqué line.

Ms Nicholl writes: “She had helped Harry edit the best man’s speech, sensitively advising him to take out a line about Kate’s ‘killer legs’ that might have embarrassed the bride.”

However, Harry’s speech was also sensitive and even made the bride cry.

Ms Nicholl continues: “It was affectionate, warm and funny and touched William deeply.”

She continues: “When he said the couple’s decade-long romance was his inspiration, there was a shy smile from Chelsy, while Kate shed a tear.”

Royal author Marcia Moody, in her 2013 book “Kate: A Biography”, gives more detail on the Duke of Sussex’s kind words. 

Ms Moody reports how Harry said: “I’ve got to know Kate pretty well but, now that she’s becoming part of the family, I’m really looking forward to getting her under my wing – or she’ll be taking me under her wing probably. 

“She’s a fantastic girl. She really is.

“My brother’s very lucky, and she’s very lucky to have my brother.

“I think the two of them are a perfect match.”

In addition to the speech, Prince Harry also took responsibility alongside Kate’s sister Pippa Middleton for “transforming the Throne Room at Buckingham Palace into a nightclub”, where he organised disco balls and “giant glass bowls of Kate and William’s favourite Haribo sweets”.

Ms Nicholl writes: “Harry happily took on the role of master of ceremonies and made sure everyone was having a great time.”
