Harry nervous waiting for William and King as he looks to Anne for comfort

A "nervous" Prince Harry showed signs of "tension or anxiety" as he waited for Prince William and King Charles to arrive at the Coronation, a body language expert has claimed.

As the crowd filed into Westminster Abbey, Harry took his place on the third row and "fixed his gaze" on his aunt the Princess Royal Anne in the row ahead of him.

He is without his wife Meghan Markle who remains at their home in California with their four-year-old son Archie, whose birthday is today.
