Earlier today, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shared their first glimpse of six-month-old Lilibet in a heartwarming family photo which was taken by their wedding photographer Alexi Lubomirski.
Speaking to Fabulous, body language expert Judi James said everything from the styling of the shoot to the couple’s poses reflect how content they are in their new lives in California.
The expert said: “This is such an idyllic and even ‘back to basics’ depiction of happiness and contentment from Meghan and Harry.”
Judi claims Harry and Meghan have purposefully referenced their first public appearance together back in 2017 – where the then-Suits star wore a pair of ripped jeans.
She continued: “[It shows] them styled in the same, emphatically casual way that they were when they first presented to the world as a couple at the Invictus games – when Meghan famously wore the ripped denim jeans that the couple and their son are wearing here.
“It makes the pose look like a celebration of freedom as much as the couple’s joy as a family of four.”
Analysing the pair’s poses, Judi says they reflect just how much Harry and Meghan have “healed” since stepping down as senior members of the Royal Family in January 2020.
The expert continued: “It makes the pose look like a celebration of freedom as much as the couple’s joy as a family of four.
“While Meghan holds Lilibet aloft to share spontaneous-looking laughter with her daughter, Harry holds a smiling Archie on his knee as he joins in the laughter with his wife.
“The whole pose balances and intertwines well, with Meghan’s head falling back onto Harry’s chest while he gazes up at his daughter with a crinkle-eyed smile of total joy.
“It is as though the couple have deleted the years of what they viewed as the pain of their life as royals and healed and restored themselves while expanding to a family unit of four.”

But the ripped jeans aren’t the only reference to other moments in the couple’s history.
Pointing out how the Duke doesn’t have any shoes on, Judi added: “Harry’s bare feet echo his photo in the garden during Meghan’s pregnancy.”
The card was released with the sweet message: “This year, 2021, we welcomed our daughter, Lilibet, to the world.
“Archie made us a ‘Mama’ and a ‘Papa’, and Lili made us a family.”
