A splash of color from Kate Middleton has shown how “confident” and “relaxed” she is during solo appearances, according to a body language expert. The Princess of Wales’ ‘different’ wardrobe choice at a May 16 event in the form of a yellow blazer and how it shows she has ‘really moved on’.
Kate Middleton went casual in a yellow blazer and sneakers at the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust
It’s back to business for Kate and the rest of the royal family after the coronation weekend. Since then, she and Prince William have resumed their regular hours.
For Kate, that included a visit to the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust in Bath, England, as part of Mental Health Awareness Week. On May 16, the 41-year-old stopped by the charity, where athletes mentor and train children.
For the occasion, Kate swapped her trouser suits for a more relaxed, almost entirely monochromatic look. She donned white Alexander McQueen pants and a matching H&M tank top (via WWD).
A bright yellow blazer from LK Bennett, one of Kate’s favorite British brands, served as the centerpiece. Kate finished her outfit with Emily Mortimer earrings and a pair of her Veja sneakers.
Kate’s yellow blazer reflected how ‘confident’ and ‘natural’ she had become during solo appearances
Wearing a yellow blazer highlighted Kate during her visit to the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust. And whether or not she intentionally followed the late Queen Elizabeth II’s strategy of avoiding muted tones, the mother-of-three seemed comfortable with the attention.
“Kate looks happy and confident while being relaxed,” body language expert Darren Stanton said on behalf of Slingo (via Mirror). “She chose to wear yellow, which is a happy color, and it’s a bit different from her usual choices as she tends to go for red, blue, white and purple.”
“Such a color allows her to reveal her personality a bit more, with Kate clearly comfortable in her choice of outfit, as she looks relaxed,” Stanton said, noting that the appearance “shows that she really evolved to attend engagements on her own.”
“Kate clearly has a lot of confidence and has become natural to go to these events and meet dignitaries on her own,” he added.
Kate Middleton seems ‘confident’ with and without Prince William
No Prince of Wales to join Kate? No problem. Stanton explained that Kate appears “confident” at royal events even though her husband isn’t by her side.
“Kate is just as confident in herself as she is when she’s with William,” the expert said. “She is the stronger personality of the two.”
“You know someone is confident by their posture and the way they walk,” he continued. “Kate always exits the vehicle after arriving at an engagement. Her arms are often outstretched and she has good eye contact when shaking hands with others.
Meanwhile, during introductions, Kate has been known to seem unfazed when someone curtsies or bows to her, another indication of her confidence.
“Kate has never shown any signs of anxiety as a result of this,” Stanton said before adding that the British royal “recognizes that this is one of the protocols that people are instructed to follow.”
