According to body language expert, Judi James, Prince William still has hopes to make amends with Prince Harry following his and his wife Meghan Markle's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Despite their conversation following the interview being "unproductive", according to Gayle King, body language specialist Judi James says William, 38, has shown signs of affection for his younger brother.

Speaking of the way William presented himself while he was with his wife Kate Middleton, 39, during a visit to School21 in Stratford, London on 11 March, Judi said William's expression was soft.

“Although he seemed very firm, he looked as though there was still affection there for Harry,” she said referring to the moment William responded to a member of the press who’d asked whether he’d been in contact with his 36-year-old brother.

In response to the question, William simply said: "No I haven’t spoken to him yet, but I will do", under his face mask.

Judi explained how his calm reaction to this question said a lot about his true feelings towards his brother, being those of care rather than anger.

“When Harry was mentioned, he raises one eye brown and his eye expression is soft,” she said.

“There wasn’t a hard eye, expression or frown to make him sound angry,” the body language specialist went on.

Judi believes that William showed he was conflicted with his feelings, which particularly was shown when the press also questioned whether the royal family are racist, following the claims made by Harry and Meghan in their interview.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex said there were "concerns" over the colour of their son's skin within the monarchy, but refused to name the person who said it.

"We're very much not a racist family,” William said in response to the question.

“It’s pretty unprecedented particularly for William, who tends to be more cautious, to engage with his eyes and be very firm about two lots of comments,” Judi explained. “The one about Harry and the other about racism.

“It was fascinating because it did show inner conflict,” she continued. “Part of him obviously wanted to just walk away as the royals tend to do and as his father had done the day before.

“He begins to turn away at least twice and once he even moves away from the press and puts an arm out to Kate as though he’s trying to usher her away quickly,” Judi said. “But you can also see that emotionally he wants to have his say because he just turns his head back.

“I saw that as an inner conflict between the usually very private side of him, you could see that emotionally it almost burst out of him,” the expert concluded.

Prince William is said to have spoken with Harry and their father Prince Charles, however their talk was "unproductive’"

A friend of both Meghan and Oprah, Gayle King said on US TV: “Harry has talked to his brother and he has talked to his father too. The word I was given was that those conversations were not productive. But they are glad that they have at least started a conversation.”
