Prince Harry appeared in the video posted to the Royal Family Youtube account. In it he discussed the Diana Awards, paying tribute to young people fighting racism. What can the video tell us about Harry and his new life in LA?
Body language expert Judi James analysed the clip exclusively for Express.co.uk.
She claimed the video shows how Harry is distancing himself from the Royal Family.
Judi said: “There are no symbols of power or wealth here, emphasizing the distancing from all things royal.”
Harry posed simply, wearing a grey jacket and white shirt, in front of a white wall.
Judi said: “There are two prime influences on Harry here during his video against racism and both get a name-check in case we missed their presence.

Judi James told Express.co.uk: “When he speaks about ‘the legacy of my mother’ we see a glimpse of some still-raw emotions in Harry’s micro-contortion of the mouth and then a sucking in of his lips that suggests pain.”
In fact, the Prince borrows a lot from his mother in the video, the expert said.
“Harry’s intro lends a lot to his mother Diana,” Judi claimed.
“One of her core body language skills was a way of connecting and ‘touching’ people through distance, crowds and lenses.
“She was able to create the kind of rapport that made people feel she was their friend.”
Prince William and Harry recently split their funds from the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund.
The fundraiser is set up for charities in their mother’s name, but now they brothers will divide the proceeds between them.
Royal expert Camilla Tominey said on This Morning today: “In a way as far as the charitable collaborations are concerned, the final death knell sounded on the relationship in the winding up of both of their contributions to the Diana Foundation.”
She went on: “Now they’ve said that they’re going to siphon the funds off separately.
“This is actually quite symbolic.”
Judi James also analysed Kate Middleton’s body language this week.
She claims the Duchess uses a very subtle sign of anxiety as a trick to look less royal.
She revealed that when meeting with the public Kate uses a “self-diminishing” gesture.
By crossing her feet at the ankle Kate looks “less royal”, Judi said.
