Body language expert Bruce Durham, known as Believing Bruce said “biology does not lie” as he examined the Royal coupe’s bombshell with Oprah Winfrey where former Suits actress Meghan said she and Harry secretly wed three days before with just the Archbishop of Canterbury present.
Meghan had said during the interview: “No-one knows that, but we called the Archbishop and we just said, ‘Look, this thing, this spectacle, is for the world, but we want our union between us.”
Since then the Most Reverend Justin Welby has confirmed he didn’t sign any official document before the couples Windsor wedding on the Saturday – claiming it would have been a “serious criminal offence” to do so.
He said: “The legal wedding was on the Saturday. I signed the wedding certificate, which is a legal document, and I would have committed a serious criminal offence if I signed it knowing it was false.”
Bruce believes he has found three clear signals from Meghan and one from Harry that expose the truth of the matter.
Bruce, who focused on the footage with Oprah and the couple in the chicken pen, looked firstly at Meghan.
He says the two seconds before people answer a question are important to dissect as that is when they reach a T-junction.
He explained: “You’ll see she touches her nose, there’s almost an inhalation of breath so that’s the discomfort I’m getting already for something.
By touching her nose, he explains that Meghan is having a “Pinocchio moment”.
Meghan then speaks about the supposed private marriage ceremony.
Bruce says she is “very theatrical” at this point with her hand gestures after claiming they secretly wed with just the Archbishop present.
He said: “Biology doesn’t lie. Oh Meghan this is quite an interesting, evocative, maybe slightly inauthentic truth.”
Meghan, he says, then makes a number of ‘eye blocks’.
He adds: “Meghan is trying to disassociate herself from maybe – we have to be fair and balanced – the lie she is saying.”
As the camera pans out to a wider shot of the couple sat across from each other, Bruce notes that Meghan starts waving her hand, like some sort of conductor.
He said: “In this particular phase as soon as she mentions the wedding she does this thing with her hand. It’s like she’s trying to be the orchestrator.”
The body language expert suggests it’s as if Meghan is trying to remind Harry about the time they got married.
“Doing this with her hand is really a peculiar thing. I remember when I got married, I don’t need a nudge to remember.”
‘There’s this energetic gesture as if it’s a trigger or cue to say, ‘go along with it’.”
Harry’s body language becomes interesting at this stage as Bruce says Harry “disengages” and is “gone to play with the chicken” as soon as Oprah turns around to look at him after Meghan speaks about the wedding.
Bruce compares it to two people meeting in a park to walk their dogs, but feeling so awkward they talk to the pets instead.
He explained: “The moment Harry feels Oprah starting to look at him he disengages, he breaks eye contact. That is the cue here.
“He doesn’t want to be part of the conversation, he feels that uncomfortable. Something went on in Harry’s head there that makes him feel uncomfortable enough to look away.”
Although he can’t conclusively say anything, Bruce says there is some truth in what the Archbishop of Canterbury is saying.
He ends: “There’s some type of either miscommunication, untruth or theres a blatant lie. But what is obvious by all of these signs is was Meghan telling the full, actual truth, possibly not.”
