The Duchess of Cambridge and her sister-in-law, the Duchess of Sussex, clearly enjoyed being next to each other in the Royal Box.
According to body language expert Judi James, the royal duo’s united display indicates a growing friendship.
Kate and Meghan mirrored each other’s gestures as they watched Meghan’s close friend Serena Williams’ game in the Ladies Singles Final.
A GROWING FRIENDSHIP
At one point, the royal ladies’ arms touched and eagle-eyed observers took notice. Speaking of the moment, James said:
"The proximity of their inner arms here, with what looks like some touching, could be a very powerful signal of a growing friendship."
James further added that the Duchess of Cambridge may have taken cues from the Queen to act in a “stoic” way to put the negative rumors about the family’s relationship to rest.
“Both Kate and Meghan looked at one another, performing a mutually modest self-diminishing ritual as they grinned together, with the synchronized movement suggesting like-minded thinking.”
SO IS THE “FEUD” OVER FOR GOOD?
Judging by their chemistry in Wimbledon, Kate and Meghan seem to be in good terms with one another.
However, a body language recently revealed that the family portrait from Meghan’s first-born Archie Mountbatten-Windsor’s christening indicated a feud between the two.

This morning, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was christened in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle at an intimate service officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are so happy to share the joy of this day with members of the public who have been incredibly supportive since the birth of their son. They thank you for your kindness in welcoming their first born and celebrating this special moment. Their Royal Highnesses feel fortunate to have enjoyed this day with family and the godparents of Archie. Their son, Archie, was baptised wearing the handmade replica of the royal christening gown which has been worn by royal infants for the last 11 years. The original Royal Christening Robe, made of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin, was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841 and first worn by her eldest daughter. It was subsequently worn for generations of Royal christenings, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren until 2004, when The Queen commissioned this handmade replica, in order for the fragile historic outfit to be preserved, and for the tradition to continue.

The portrait was a treat to hungry speculators’ eyes as they noticed that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were posing “awkwardly” as other family members beamed with happiness.
