  • Shock: One of the only moments Kate Middleton lost her composure

Body language expert Judi James told Express.co.uk how Sophie was a “template” to Kate.

Sophie Countess of Wessex is notably the only first spouse of the Queen’s children to remain married.

So, Sophie appears to be in a good position to give advice to the Duchess of Cambridge.

Judi said: “Windsor men make notoriously difficult husbands but Sophie must have been like a walking template for Kate on how to make a marriage work and how to be nearly pitch perfect at a royal role while also gaining the trust and approval of The Queen.”

Judi revealed the “signs of mutual respect” the pair share.

She said: “There are signs of mutual respect between the two women: Kate for Sophie’s unique role in the previous generation of the royal firm and Sophie for Kate’s rank as future queen.

“Although we normally only seem to see these two royal wives together at more formal events, the body language signals between them show high levels of mirroring and focus on one another that hint that Sophie might have dropped gently and discreetly into place as the royal mother-in-law that Kate never had.”

The expert says the signs of friendship between the pair appear to be genuine, as subtle sign show.

She said: “The crinkling around the sides of Kate’s mouth, chin and cheeks here suggest she’s suppressing a laugh on this rather solemn occasion.

“Sophie’s smile also sooks suppressed here, with similar crinkling – plus the way that she’s pulling the corners of her lips down as her mouth opens.

“These signals of mirrored suppressed smiling rather than wide social grins that might be just for show suggest ties of friendship between Sophie and Kate.”

Judi also claimed that Sophie and Kate are “delighted to be in one another’s company” amid claims they will be working together more in the future.

After Meghan Markle and Prince Harry left the Royal Family, a hole was left in the royal rota.

Many experts have now claimed Sophie and Prince Edward will be filling in the gap left by the pair, who have moved to LA.

For International Nurses Day Kate joined forces with Sophie, Countess of Wessex to speak to nurses.

A source told the Mirror: “There is going to be a lot more interaction between the family members while the crisis is ongoing.

“Her Majesty has given instructions that, after a turbulent period for the family last year, now is the time to heal and have a united front and get back to the basics of what the monarchy is for – her sole belief is that it goes back to the basics of duty.”

Now it has been revealed that any future for this new “Fab Four” could be bright, as it is claimed Kate and Sophie get along well together.

Judi said: “They do look delighted to be in one another’s company when their paths do cross in the line of duty.

How did Kate Middleton become a royal?
