Harry ‘consoled’ by Meghan after ‘regretful glance’ to William during funeral

Meghan Markle has been praised after she was spotted "consoling" Prince Harry after he showed signs of "regret" during the Queen's funeral.

Body language expert Judi James said the mum-of-two supported her husband as he displayed moments of "grief and distress."

It comes as the Duke of Sussex glanced over at his brother Prince William multiple times during the Queen's state funeral.

According to James, the interaction between Harry and William showed that he was "regretful."

The two brothers, who are known to have a rocky relationship, came together today (September 19) for the state funeral service of their grandmother the Queen.

In moving scenes, both brothers walked behind the coffin as it was brought on the state gun carriage to Westminster Abbey.

The body language expert claimed Harry hinted at wanting a bigger role in proceedings.

She told the Sun : “Some words did pass between Prince Harry and Meghan during the service and it looked as though she was consoling him in his grief and distress.

“She was clearly tuned into him in terms of being supportive, turning her head in his direction several times when he moved.”

The expert added: "During the service he was dabbing tears as well as tending to look around a lot and there were at least two occasions when his gaze that was more of a stare appeared directed at William.

"His expression suggested sadness and possible regret."

After the service came to an end, and the brothers prepared to march behind the coffin once again, Harry put on his most "emotional display".

There has been much made of the rift between the two brothers with their frosty relationship reportedly sparked by William's concerns over Harry's fast-developing relationship with Meghan Markle ahead of their royal wedding in 2018.

The tense row quickly boiled over – with Harry claiming his brother was "trapped" within the royal system during a bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey after quitting as a senior royal.

In future, though, with William heir to the British throne and Harry building a life with Meghan in the US, their paths will continue to diverge after this long goodbye to their grandmother.

Hundreds of thousands of well-wishers flocked to London and are lining the route through the capital to say their last goodbyes, while millions around the globe are watching proceedings on TV.

A televised committal ceremony will take place in the chapel at 4pm followed by a private interment service attended by senior royals.
