At the annual Remembrance Sunday service, Princess Kate's subtle reminder of royal hierarchy to Queen Camilla was evident, according to a body language expert. Both women, standing on the balcony of the Foreign Office, appeared as a "strong team" during the ceremony led by King Charles.

The expert, Judi James, noted their similar poses and matching wide-brimmed hats, presenting an image of two equals. Despite Kate's solemn expression and Camilla's 'beatific' smile, a moment at the end suggested Kate reminded Camilla of hierarchy.

After the service, Camilla turned towards the interior, prompting Kate to gesture 'after you.' This exchange hinted at the impact of the late Queen's death, emphasizing the need for subtle hierarchical reminders.

Meanwhile, Kate, unlike other royals, adorned multiple poppies on her outfit as a tribute to those lost in wars. While the reason for wearing several poppies remains unconfirmed, it is speculated to honor family members who served and died. Kate's choice may be linked to her great-grandmother's three brothers killed in World War One. The late Queen also wore multiple poppies, symbolizing the five branches of service.

The Remembrance Sunday service marked the second time King Charles led the nation in this role. His wreath-laying at the Cenotaph, followed by Prince William and other royals, emphasized the somber occasion. The presence of Kate and Camilla on the balcony reflected a unified front, reinforcing their roles as integral figures during such ceremonies.
