Princess Anne began working on behalf of the Queen when she was just 18-years-old. Sophie, Countess of Wessex and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall took on royal responsibilities when they married.

Sophie is the wife of the Queen’s youngest son, Prince Edward, and she is the sister-in-law of Princess Anne.

Camilla also became part of the family when she married Prince Charles in 2005.

Over the years, and before the coronavirus pandemic, Princess Anne has been seen with her royal relatives at various events.

Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, body language expert Darren Stanton suggested the royal women show signs of closeness.

However, they could all have very different personality traits, the expert claimed.

Commenting on a picture of the three women, he explained Sophie and Princess Anne both have “strong” body language.

He said: “Sophie is a very strong woman as is Princess Anne.

“If we look at Princess Anne’s hands against Sophie, Princess Anne is the most dominant character of the three.”

Darren claimed Princess Anne appears more “dominant” than Sophie, while Camilla shows signs of “insecurity”.

He continued: “[Princess Anne’s] hand gesture is called a steeple gesture which we have recently seen with major politicians.

“It signifies ‘I am the most important person here’.

“Camillas hands are not visible and almost look as if they are in her pockets.

“This is a sign of slight anxiety and insecurity even though she appears to be laughing.

“A smile or laugh is the most faked emotion. It is sometimes used to disguise anxiety or nervousness.”

While they could have different personality traits, Darren added they seem to get on well.

The expert said: “In one picture, Camilla is donning a genuine smile denoted by the fact a whole face is engaged.

“We see the crows feet at the side engaged which means she is genuinely happy.

“Likewise with Princess Anne she has a less engaged facial expression however seems to be enjoying the adulation.”

He commented on another picture where Princess Anne and Camilla greeted each other at an event. 

Again, the expert commented their hand signals could give away their relationship.  

“How Princess Anne is holding Camilla’s hands is a power gesture,” he stated.

“Some body language experts would say placing the hand on top denotes power.

“However, if we examine the way in which Princess Anne is holding Camilla’s hand, it is reminiscent of a parent holding a child.

“Although the pair may get on very well, psychologically she is still saying ‘I am the stronger royal’.”
