The queen shares a “very special” relationship with Princess Anne, according to a body language expert.
The comments come after it was revealed that the Queen only answers her phone to two people, her race director and Princess Anne.
Behavioral expert Darren Stanton spoke on behalf of the online casino Slingo and has told why Princess Royal may have this intimate access to the Queen in a way that her brothers and other family members do not have.
Stanton said: “I definitely think the Queen has a very special relationship with Princess Anne, which is different from what she has with the three boys as she is her only daughter.
“Princess Anne is known for being a pretty tough person and very good in a crisis and out of all the royal children, even though she has had problems in the past, she is still one of the most resolute and strongest members of the senior royal family. “That’s why Princess Anne would be one of the few people in the world to have instant access to the Queen.”
“The Queen has always been a very strong emotionally, and she rarely shows emotion in public, although when we see Princess Anne and the Queen at races and various other country activities, their smiles and genuine happiness are undeniable when they spend a lot of time together outdoors. .
“When we talk about matching and mirroring in psychology and body language, it means that each person mirrors the other’s posture and gesture, while in the case of Princess Anne and the Queen, if we look at photographs of the couple together while dressed. in national costume with the scarf they look more like two sisters than mother and daughter as they are in complete synchronicity and have a deep relationship.
“Princess Anne also shares the Queen’s love for all things equestrian, a passion that is clearly very important to Her Majesty, especially when we consider her race director is said to be the other person she will often talk to on the phone. Their love for horses will no doubt bring them together. “
“Princess Anne had a very special relationship with her father Prince Philip. I think even though Princess Anne clearly understood the sacrifices he made for the monarchy, she became much more aware of what he had given up and the things he did to support the queen and the monarchy after he died.
“Like when an important family member dies, the dynamics and relationships of the family change and develop as well, so perhaps Prince Philips’ passing has brought the Queen and Princess Anne even closer together, and therefore she has this intimate contact with the Queen.”
