IN the latest trailer for Prince Harry and Meghan’s bombshell Netflix series, we see the prince take a fresh swipe at the Royal Family.
In the clip, the prince accused the Palace of “not telling the truth to protect” him and Meghan, whilst claiming that they were happy to lie to protect his brother William.

The trailer for the Sussexes’ bombshell new Netflix series was released today and posted to Twitter, which also included Harry talking about “institutional gaslighting“.
In the trailer, Harry fired shots at the Royal Family as he accused the Palace of refusing to “protect” him and Meghan, as he said: “They were happy to lie to protect my brother. They were never willing to tell the truth to protect us.”
However, he did not provide any examples of the alleged lies.
He even accused the Firm of “institutional gaslighting“.
We spoke to body language expert Judi James, to get her thoughts on what Prince Harry’s body language in this new trailer really means.
Judi noted: “We see Harry’s body language present in five different and apparently contrasting states in this short trailer.
“First we have the Power Pose. Harry adopts a classic business person’s power pose as he says ‘I wonder what would have happened had we not got out when we did.’
“His elbows are on the arms of his chair and his hands are lightly joined in front of his chin to create a bridging ritual, where his lower arms and hands form a bridge shape.
“His fingers in this bridge perform a confident metronomic gesture by tapping lightly. This all gives the impression of a high-status individual making an evaluation of a situation.
“His thumbs are steepled in this light clasp, which is another power/status gesture. His chin is slightly raised and he seems to do a long blink. This makes him look authoritative.”
Not only this, but Judi explained that Harry expresses his status in the trailer, as she added: “Then we see a less assured gesture as Harry says ‘I said we need to get out of here.’ He is shot from the side now and his body language looks incongruent.
“On the one hand we have his index finger placed up against his cheek, which is another gesture of status and evaluation.
“But his other fingers are placed over or in his mouth as he speaks. Covering your mouth to hide it as you speak will often suggest you’re not sure about your own words and putting them in your mouth hints you’re saying something you’re uncomfortable or unsure about sharing.”
We also see Harry grinning on a “Freedom flight” to the US after he and Meghan quit the UK to move to California.
On this, Judi noted: “We then see a giggling Harry in his ‘freedom flight’ selfie as well as the shots of Meghan and Harry jumping about to expose their inner, happy and presumably ‘free’ child state.”
Judi then continued: “Harry’s fourth state is one of persuasion. His eyes are rounded and wide to camera as he says ‘…happy to lie to protect my brother’.
“He is shown with a head tilt, which suggest a desire to be liked, and he uses a stacking gesture with both hands thrown to his left to mime or signal some moving of things into his past as he reveals his key reason for not just getting on with his idyllic new life: ‘In order for us to move to our second chapter we have to finish our first’.
“He has used a similar thrusting of his hands to his left when speaking about William in the past.”
Finally, the body language expert noticed that Harry appeared as though he was ready for a fight, as she stated: “Harry’s final ritual looks all about gearing for a fight. When he says it is ‘worth fighting for’ he rolls or judders his shoulders as though bracing or preparing for an actual fight.”
Harry and Meghan stepped down as working royals in early 2020 as they moved to America, eventually settling in their sprawling Montecito, California mansion.
They have lived there ever since with their two children, Archie and Lilibet.
The second half of the new show is due to be released on Thursday, after the first three episodes dropped last week.
