Princess Eugenie posted a photo of herself with her husband and baby on Instagram today. In the caption, she announced the name of her son, who was born on February 9.
“These are wonderfully non-royal-looking poses from Jack and Eugenie,” said Judi.
She added the couple have adopted a “kind of casual, bare-faced and very natural look that we have only ever seen once before from the royals, when Kate did her recent bare-faced selfie-style message for social media”.
Judi referred to Kate Middleton’s recent selfie video, posted on social media ahead of Children’s Mental Health Week earlier this month.
Like Kate, Eugenie is not wearing much make-up in this photo.
Judi compared Jack’s body language to Prince Harry’s in previous images of him with baby Archie, noting: “Like Harry, Jack has adopted the role of ‘baby-carrier’ for the pose to suggest a more involved role than we are used to see in the previous generation of men in the royal family.
“Holding your first-born can be tricky enough but tilting it towards the camera could be nerve-wracking,” Judi added.
“But the lack of any apparent tension in Jack’s fingers here suggests a confident approach to fatherhood.”
The body language expert also commented on Eugenie’s outfit, in particular her headband: “The one slightly out-of-place looking thing in this very down-to-earth and casual moment is the wide gold headband atop Eugenie’s head, looking almost like a small crown.
“The way this is worn despite the dress-down vibe suggests this could be a silent nod of affection to her mother Sarah, for who this ‘Sloane Ranger’ accessory is a signature look.”
