The Queen has VERY different views on Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, according to this expert.
It seems that the Queen sees the two Duchesses, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle in completely different ways and this is reflected in her body language, according to one expert.
When Queen Elizabeth II is with Kate Middleton, she has a sense of duty and remains poised at all times but when the 92-year-old monarch is around Meghan, her sense of fun is more obvious.
Both Kate and Meghan have attended separate royal visits involving official engagements with the Queen and this is where the differences were noticed.
Kate attended a joint royal engagement with her grandmother-in-law earlier this week, opening a new education facility at Kings College London and last year, the Queen and Meghan visited Chester together on official royal business.

Today The Queen, accompanied by The Duchess of Cambridge, visited King's College London to officially open Bush House, the latest education and learning facilities on the Strand Campus. The Queen and The Duchess viewed a robotics demonstration — including robotic surgery — and a demo showing how sensors made from textiles can measure useful information about the body. They also visited King’s virtual trading floor at the Entrepreneurship Institute, which supports entrepreneurial thinking, skills and experiences among Kings’ students, staff and alumni. ?PA/Royal Communications
Body language expert Judi James spoke to The Mirror and explained how there are significant differences in her interactions with the two women.
"Kate and the Queen sat in the same formal pose and they stood in the same formal pose, with hands clasped in front, and for both women it looked perfectly natural despite the differences in age and height".
Judi went on to say that the two women sharing a blanket in the car is a gesture of friendship as is the shared eye contact they display with each other.

How Meghan and the Queen interact with each other is significantly different but they get on very well all the same.
"With Meghan there are clearly strong signals of affection from the Queen but they have the more look of an indulgent granny with her grand-daughter".
Judi went on to say that while the Queen will enjoy spending time with Meghan, Harry and their baby, it's about duty with Kate and this is no major surprise considering that Kate may become Queen Consort at some point down the line.
After looking at the photos of the women chatting together, you can definitely see what Judi means when she speaks about the different reactions and gestures shared between them.
