Prince Edward in conflict with his brother King Charles III before the coronation?
All eyes are on King Charles III and his upcoming coronation amid explosive claims by Prince Harry in the Netflix series and memoir Spare.
However, as noted by a body language expert, Charles’ reign could face another threat as his brother, Prince Edward, appears to be feuding with the monarch.
Prince Edward and the Countess of Wessex attended the Royal Variety Performance late last year where everyone sang the national anthem ‘God Save the King’ but Edward didn’t.
Speaking to Express, body language expert Judi James analysed: ‘Prince Edward’s choice not to sing the national anthem on the Royal Variety show felt like a very powerful and deliberate statement.
“But what was he trying to signal?” Speculation ranged from a possible rift between him and King Charles to the suggestion that he might have taken on the role of king himself, as the monarch is usually the only person who does not take part in singing in public,” a added Judi.
She further explained, “[Edward’s] the eyes look up and his blink rate is normal, which would make it unlikely that this was a gesture based on angry rebellion or a refusal to honor his brother. Her lips are closed but not tight and there is even the hint of a faint wistful smile.
