She told Entertainment Daily!: “She holds herself very still and composed throughout – almost too perfectly posed… It makes me remember she is an actress.

“What’s most interesting is her tone of voice in this clip.

“It’s strong, determined and lower than her normal tone of voice (compared to the Oprah interview particularly).

“When someone lowers the tone of their voice it’s a sign that they want you to take them seriously and is supposed to generate higher levels of trust.

“A firm and confident tone of voice is often used to give the impression that the person talking is distinguished and important…”

Meanwhile, Scarlett Red, presenter and body language expert, and owner of Mama’s Closet, also shared her thoughts.

She told us: “Meghan is sitting upright with her shoulders back. This is to portray an image of confidence and authority to the audience.

What else did the experts say?

“She is maintaining constant eye contact, as if to overemphasise her sincerity. When people lie, they compensate by over-holding a gaze.

“She also blinks rapidly in parts of her speech. This can indicate increased stress levels or having to remember what they previously said. It can be a sign of deception.”

In addition, she continued: “When we are genuinely smiling, the side of our eyes naturally crease. Meghan’s don’t do this at any point, so the smiling does not appear genuine.

“Meghan raises and twitches her eyebrows a lot during her speech.

“This is a submissive move which indicates openness. It is also done subconsciously when we are making demand or arguing/making important points.

“By her body language analysis, she appears to be trying to overemphasise her importance, confidence and authority.

“She appears to genuinely care about the subject she is talking about, however, there seems to be an underlying vulnerability and a facade being put up.”

Meanwhile, during her appearance, Meghan made a touching tribute to the late Princess Diana.

Meghan wore a stunning Cartier Tank Française watch.
