Members of the Royal Family attended the G7 reception tonight in a group outing which has become rare since the coronavirus pandemic. Queen Elizabeth II hosted a banquet for leaders during the G7 summit.
“Her leadership still looks impeccable and her congruent smile of delight doesn’t falter.”
The Queen’s positive demeanor was not necessarily replicated by her family, the expert suggested.
She claimed Prince Charles and Prince William showed more signs of tension as they walked to the event.
Kate and Prince William were also seen to mirror each other.
Judi continued: “Behind her, Charles and William display several signals of tension, Charles with his signature checking rituals and William with a similar amount of checking and adjusting touches to his jacket and his tie.
“Kate mirrors William’s clothing touches in their usual style of empathetic symmetry of movement.”
At the reception, Queen Elizabeth II met with leaders from G7 nations including Prime Minister Boris Johnson and US President Joe Biden.
When the Queen spoke with Mr Johnson, the rest of the royals seemed to linger behind.
She claimed the monarch looked happy in their conversations which could suggest previous fondness.
The Queen also managed to stay as the “centre of attention” despite being surrounded by other royals and world leaders.
Judi said: “The Queen beams fondly at Boris, watching him intently with a look of expectation as though she might just have enjoyed his sense of humour in the past.
“The full power of the Queen’s formidable charisma still ensures she is the center of attention here though as she leads the group in to meet the G7 leaders.”
The royal line of succession – who outranks who?
The line of succession to the British throne dictates the order in which each member of the Royal Family would ascend to the throne.
It is also seen as a ranking of importance with the head of the line, the Queen, taking the place of ruler.
Older children come before younger children. Traditionally boys came before girls, but this law was changed on 26 March 2015 before the birth of Prince William’s first child.
Incredibly, Catholics are still excluded from the line of succession, as are children born outside of wedlock.
The royals, who usually stick to a strict protocol when appearing in public, often arrive at events in ascending order of importance, with the most important royal arriving last.
Prince Charles, 72, is currently first-in-line to the British throne, followed by Prince William, 38, his oldest son.
Then comes Prince William’s children, George, seven, Charlotte, five, and Louis, two, and they are followed by Prince Harry, 36. Prince Harry is succeeded by his son Archie Harrison, born in May 2019.
