Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, 38, has had a very busy week after the results of her “5 Big Questions for Under Fives” survey were made public. The Duchess has concentrated her royal work on early years learning for the best part of a decade and the five questions study is something of a milestone.

On Friday, Kate presented the findings in a keynote speech in which she urged people to recognise the impact early childhood years have on adult development.

In the address, Kate said: “Over the last decade I have met people from all walks of life.

“I have seen that experiences such as homelessness, addiction and poor mental health are often grounded in a difficult childhood.

“But I have also seen how positive protective factors in the early years can play a crucial role in shaping our futures…”

The Duchess added: “The early years are not simply about how we raise our children.

“They are in fact about how we raise the next generation of adults.

“They are about the society we will become.”

Since then Kensington Palace has shared a series of bitesize clips of the Duchess explaining each of the survey’s findings.

Kensington Palace tweeted a clip of Kate explaining the fifth and final insight of her study on Saturday.

The tweet read: “And lastly, the fifth and final insight from our #5BigInsights: During the covid pandemic, support from local communities has substantially increased for many – but not for all.”

The Duchess looks chic in a simple white outfit as she addresses the camera while seated.

Body language expert Judi James analysed the new video for Express.co.uk and claimed that while Kate’s delivery was “professional” her determination manifested itself in her facial expressions and revealed a surprising habit.

Judi told Express.co.uk: “Sharing the last of her insights from her 5 Big Insights as part of her ground-breaking campaign, Kate’s body language shows an air of authority as well as caring here.”

She added: “It’s a short clip, delivered confidently and with a professional-looking amount of body movement and facial expression to add some natural-looking emphasis.”

Judi explained how sitting at an angle helped add “impact” to the address.

The expert said: “Kate sits at an angle and her asymmetric pose and facial expression give her insight impact.”

Judi added: “Her right arm leans out as though it is perhaps leaning on the arm of the chair, and her left brow is slightly raised and her left eye slightly widened to help avoid looking wooden or tense.”

Despite Kate’s natural authority, there were signs of tension too, Judi claimed.

The analyst said: “Kate’s authority signals are mainly from her mouth expression, though.

“There is that slight pursing of the lips that suggests firmness and the way her teeth meet edge-to-edge suggests a determined, gritting of the teeth ritual.”
