She added: “Charlotte‘s body language appeared to be protective, which demonstrated that she is stepping up to support her mother, Kate – she was acting almost like her right-hand woman.”

According to another body language expert, Judi James, Charlotte ‘stepped in’ for the Princess of Wales during the celebration.

She explained to Express: “[Kate’s] hat brim was tilted so that her face was partly hidden in the carriage, when she would normally wear a hat in a way that her full face would be on show at all times.

“She smiled and waved from the carriage but it was Charlotte who seemed to be standing in a little for her mother, copying Kate’s normally dazzling pitch perfect smile and flashing it at the crowds while waving furiously as the carriage went on its route.”

Last Friday (June 14), Kate released a statement to confirm her attendance at Trooping the Colour. She also provided fans with an update on her cancer treatment.

She said: “I am making good progress, but as anyone going through chemotherapy will know, there are good days and bad days. On those bad days you feel weak, tired and you have to give in to your body resting. But on the good days, when you feel stronger, you want to make the most of feeling well.

“My treatment is ongoing and will be for a few more months. On the days I feel well enough, it is a joy to engage with school life, spend personal time on the things that give me energy and positivity, as well as starting to do a little work from home.”
