The Sovereign's Parade in England, December 2017
Prince Harry has been in the spotlight even more than usual this year, and we certainly aren't complaining. Once we get past those dreamy eyes and that beautiful smile, one thing keeps catching our eyes: Harry's interesting hand gesture. The young royal has been photographed multiple times this year with one of his hands tucked into the front of his suit jacket — but what does it mean?
Body language expert Blanca Cobb recently told Good Housekeeping that the gesture might be Harry's way of putting his guard up when he's in public. "Prince Harry's arm placed across his abdomen serves as a barrier to separate or distance himself from something that he makes him uncomfortable. In this case, it could be having photos taken," she said. "Given that Prince Harry is commonly seen making this gesture, I believe that he doesn't even realize that he's doing it." One thing's for sure: regardless of whether Harry's hand is tucked into his jacket or not, there's no denying that he looks damn good either way.
