A body language expert has suggested the Duke wants a low-key birthday as his focus remains on the Invictus Games.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have spent a memorable day celebrating his 39th birthday at the Invictus Games, but according to a body language analyst he may prefer for the spotlight not to be on him.

While watching one event at the Games the announcer proclaimed over the speaker that it was the Duke’s birthday, with the whole crowd singing along in a heartening rendition of Happy Birthday.

On Thursday night, Harry and Meghan joined friends at the German restaurant Schumach Beer Factory in Düsseldorf, however Judi James told The Mirror that the Prince appeared “bashful” in a photo from the meal out.

She said: “After a day spent canoodling his wife, Harry’s birthday boy pose here makes him look a little more bashful as he lines up for a group shot in the restaurant.

“There are two clear sides to Harry here: there’s the rather macho, raised hand, clamping shake that he’s performing with a man who presumably owns the restaurant, and then the loving arm that he has placed around his wife’s back.”

She added: “His smile is more low-key than his smiles in the stadium, with no display of teeth, suggesting he was a ‘no fuss please’ birthday boy.

“Meghan looks more confident though, standing slightly in front with a dazzling social smile while Harry tucks in more behind her.”

The couple have been packing on the PDAs (public displays of affection) throughout the week, with Ms James suggesting they will not be stopping anytime soon.

The expert explained: “After a day of hugging and some very emphatic PDAs, the couple’s leg positioning suggests they’re keeping the touch ratio up. Both have bent their inner legs so that they seem to be pressed together here.”

The Sussexes and their entourage reportedly tucked into a classic German meal of schnitzel, sausages, red cabbage and mashed potato, washed down with a few beers.

The staff also presented Harry with a white chocolate birthday cake, which he and Meghan took back to their hotel to share with the group at the end of the night.

Thea Ungermann and head waiter Frank Wackers from the restaurant shared their experience of meeting the couple with MailOnline, saying: “He was a lovely man and was having a very jolly time. Meghan was lovely. They were very happy. He is a lovely man, and they were so nice.”

A source close to the Prince told the publication: “They drank local beer and ate family style dishes to experience a true German meal. Everyone was incredibly friendly, especially the waiters pictured in the photograph online.

“They did not dine in a private space and were in joyful spirits, toasting and laughing with the team.

“After dinner the group headed back to the hotel to sing happy birthday and eat cake just shy of midnight!”
