Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, 38, has had a very busy week after the results of her “5 Big Questions for Under Fives” survey were made public. The Duchess has concentrated her royal work on early years learning for the best part of a decade and the five questions study is something of a milestone.
On Friday, Kate presented the findings in a keynote speech in which she urged people to recognise the impact early childhood years have on adult development.

Judi added: “Her right arm leans out as though it is perhaps leaning on the arm of the chair, and her left brow is slightly raised and her left eye slightly widened to help avoid looking wooden or tense.”
Despite Kate’s natural authority, there were signs of tension too, Judi claimed.
The analyst said: “Kate’s authority signals are mainly from her mouth expression, though.
“There is that slight pursing of the lips that suggests firmness and the way her teeth meet edge-to-edge suggests a determined, gritting of the teeth ritual.”
