Andrew deflecting as he scanned order of service, says body language expert

"Uncomfortable" Prince Andrew was "deflecting" as the only royal spotted flicking through the order of service at the service of prayer and reflection for the late Queen today (Wednesday, September 14), an expert has claimed.

Andrew was joined on foot by King Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Edward, Prince William and Prince Harry among others as royals followed the Queen's coffin from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall for the service.

Queen Consort Camilla, Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle and Sophie Wessex all travelled behind in a convoy of vehicles that met the procession at Westminster Hall.

Andrew and Harry looked slightly out of place throughout the procession as, given that they are now non-working royals, they were not permitted to wear military uniforms like the other members of the family beside them.

However, according to body language expert Adrianne Carter – who goes by The Face Whisperer – Andrew looked particularly out of place during the service too.

As one of the Queen's children, Andrew was stood in the body of the hall. Ahead of him was Anne and her husband Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, and ahead of them stood the King and Queen Consort.

Behind stood the Wessexes, then the Cambridges, then the Sussexes – meaning that Andrew stood along among the couples.

However, Adrianne picked up on something else as well. She told the Daily Star: "Prince Andrew was the only one flicking through the order of service.

"It looked like deflecting behaviour as he might be feeling uncomfortable.

"When we feel uncomfortable, we often fiddle with something to distract ourselves."

Andrew may feel more comfortable in his next visit to Westminster Hall as it was revealed earlier this week that he will be allowed to wear military uniform to the final vigil there, as a special mark of respect to his mother.

Harry will not be given special dispensation to wear his uniform for that event.
