Princess Anne 'hands-off' body language shows 'contrasting' traits with Zara Tindall


“With her often dour facial expression and her deeply unromantic, hands-off displays with both her husbands, she can appear cold and aloof compared to her daughter’s warmth and her love of dishing out hugs.”

The expert suggested Zara shows more of her emotions when in public than her mother.

Princess Anne is often considered the hardest working royal and represents the Queen during various engagements.

Zara was not given an official title and is not a working royal, however the choice to give her a more private life may have brought the women closer together.

Judi added: “The advantages of coaching look mutually-beneficial to both women though.

“Zara’s sense of humour and constantly happy approach to life allows Anne to show her fun side, too.

“One interaction between mother and daughter shows enough of Zara’s face in silhouette to catch the laughter there but Anne’s expression as she gazes at her daughter is a revelation for the Princess.

“Her softened eye expression as she face-gazes Zara shows the deep affection she has for her, while the deep cheek grooves that the open-mouth smile has created shows a solid bond of shared humour and fun.”

The royal line of succession – who outranks who?

The line of succession to the British throne dictates the order in which each member of the Royal Family would ascend to the throne.

It is also seen as a ranking of importance with the head of the line, the Queen, taking the place of ruler.

Older children come before younger children. Traditionally boys came before girls, but this law was changed on 26 March 2015 before the birth of Prince William’s first child.

Incredibly, Catholics are still excluded from the line of succession, as are children born outside of wedlock.

The royals, who usually stick to a strict protocol when appearing in public, often arrive at events in ascending order of importance, with the most important royal arriving last.

Prince Charles, 72, is currently first-in-line to the British throne, followed by Prince William, 38, his oldest son.

Then comes Prince William’s children, George, seven, Charlotte, five, and Louis, two, and they are followed by Prince Harry, 36. Prince Harry is succeeded by his son Archie Harrison, born in May 2019.
