Prince Harry is feeling "genuine sadness" at not being in "the thick of it," a body language expert tells GB News.

The Duke of Sussex has been in the Netherlands for the Invictus Games, but he found time to speak face-to-face with his grandmother, the Queen, before making the trip.

Despite this, he is feeling "quite torn" about the whole affair according to Darren Stanton, a body language expert, who spoke about Harry's emotions to Neil Oliver.

Addressing the Duke of Sussex's relationship with his grandmother, Darren Stanton said: "I see a sadness micro-expression.

"I think he's feeling quite torn between being over there and the UK, he's feeling genuine sadness at not being in the thick of it almost".

In reference to a CNBC interview with the Duke of Sussex, Darren Stanton exclusively told GB News that Harry showed a "micro-expression" which was suggestive of his mood.

"When people are under pressure, there will be an emotional shift, so that is what I'm looking for, what we saw within that is Harry's lips go quite pale, that's to do with an emotional shift".

In his interview with NBC’s Today show he appeared to issue a veiled warning to those closest to the Queen, saying he wanted to make sure his grandmother was “protected” and had “the right people around her”.

Harry did not elaborate on whether he was referring to royal aides or members of his own family, but his comments are likely to have deepened his rift with his father the Prince of Wales and his brother the Duke of Cambridge as well as perplexing palace officials.

A camera crew filming for a Netflix documentary called Heart Of Invictus – a series from Harry and Meghan’s Archewell Productions following people competing at the event – was seen close to the couple during their time at the games.

The crew continued to film Harry and competitors after Meghan left earlier this week, and often a drone could be seen hovering above events.

Harry and Meghan signed a multimillion-pound deal with streaming giant Netflix in 2020.
