Earlier this month on June 2nd, the United Kingdom and the world at large celebrated Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee. The event was attended by thousands of guests and millions watching all over the world.

Among the many in attendance was body language expert, Judi James. After analyzing Duchess Kate Middleton's body language during the Jubilee, James is convinced that Kate has what it takes to be the exact kind of leader her country needs.

June 2nd, 2022 marked the 70th year of Queen Elizabeth II's reign, which is a pretty big deal, by the way.

Believe it or not, this actually makes her the longest-reigning monarch Great Britain has ever seen.

People came out in droves to celebrate and millions all over the world tuned in to watch the Party at the Palace concert.

The event was obviously one of the most talked-about events of the entire year, and keep in mind we are only the month of June.

The night featured performances from the likes of Rod Stewart, Queen featuring Adam Lambert, Diana Ross, and Alicia Keys.

But of all the many high-profile guests in attendance, none was watched more closely than the Duchess of Cambridge — Kate Middleton.

Queen Elizabeth II, unfortunately, couldn't attend due to feelings of discomfort brought on by the events of the day prior.

With the Queen's absence being felt by the country at large, the future Queen consort stepped up to fill the void.

According to body language expert Judi James, Kate Middleton looks the part and does an impeccable job carrying herself in a regal manner.

As a matter of fact, James revealed to 'The Sun' that both the Duke and Duchess "Look like the future king and queen."

While discussing the Duchess, James noted that Kate looked firm and strong; ready to take the lead.

"She walked in first, waved to the crowds first," James pointed out.

The body language expert also made note of a shared exchange between Prince William and the Duchess, while they were waiting for events to begin inside St. Paul's Cathedral.

James expressed how Kate nodded to William, almost as if she was silently stealing her husband to do the walkout past his brother.

"She seems to come into her own at events like this," James said. "She takes over the regal presence without the Queen there."

With Kate putting up a regal appearance, William was free to look "joyful and upbeat," according to James.

That is until it came time for William to make his way past his brother, Harry.

You can imagine how weird that might have been for them.

At that moment, William turned his head away.

He raised his program, in what many have deemed to be a "barrier gesture."

Speaking of Harry, James remarked how the prince appeared to be rife with anxiety. Which makes sense, considering what they've been going through over the past few years.

Harry hardly made eye contact, would repeatedly touch his clothes, and kept his head down in a submissive manner.

"It was like he had agreed to be the invisible man there to some extent," James said.

That must have been...awkward.

Once all the royal pleasantries had been dispensed with and the Service of Thanksgiving was over, Kate once again proved her regal mettle.

According to The Mirror, Kate decided to make a secret visit to Evelina Children's Hospital in South London.

The hospital made a statement via Twitter.

Kate wanted to make a point of visiting those patients and their families who couldn't be at the Jubilee in person.

If that doesn't tug on your heartstrings, I don't know what does.

Suffice it to say that when the day comes when Queen Elizabeth II is no longer able to sit on the throne, she can rest easy knowing that her beloved country is in good hands.
