body language expert added he was openly emotional in 'a way that the crown has never seen before'<br>'Gone was the traditional stiff upper lip, stoicism and suppressed emotions, and in their place were words and non-verbal signals of personal love and extreme sadness,' she added. <br>Judi James added that this show of emotions echoed Charles' tearful demeanour during the funeral of his father the Duke of Edinburgh, in April 2021.  <br>'Charles had never been an expressive man until we saw his tears at his father's funeral,' she explained.  'That day it was Kate comforting him.<br>'Here, he shared his grief with the nation but with loving references to his "darling wife Camilla",'.<br>She noted that he displayed one of the only warm smiles during the otherwise deeply sad address when he spoke of Camilla being the one he has relied on 'so much'.<br>  RELATED ARTICLES                      Share this article Share    Judi also highlighted the parts of Charles' speech in which he mentioned his sons as being very expressive. <br>'There was an expression of pride and confidence as he referenced William and Catherine,' she noted.<br>'Then he spoke of his "love for" Harry and Meghan. This comment brought a long pause, and his eyes dropped in a sad, regretful-looking cut-off ritual, as he seemed to allow a small sigh before continuing to speak.'<br>The body language expert said Charles grew most emotional towards the end of his speech, when he appeared to 'be on the brink of tears. <br>'As he spoke of his "darling Mama" and addressed her directly, his eyes appeared to dampen, his voice began to falter and he needed a glance to the side before speaking of a "flight of angels to sing thee",' she added. <br>She noted that the new King was 'hunched and partly hidden behind the table', noting a postural change when he changed direction in the speech.<br>              (image:  )    Charles' traditional 'stiff upper lip, stoicism and suppressed emotions' were all

expert Judi James, during his speech (pictured) King Charles 'spoke as a son but he also addressed the nation as the new king' <br>'He spoke as a son but he also addressed the nation as the new king,' Judi explained.<br>'And it was here he seemed to flex his shoulders as his chin jutted slightly, to suggest some determination to move forward in the post.'<br>But this was 'only after he had shown a very intimate and revealing display of love to the woman [the Queen] who had held it before', she revealed.<br>Addressing his mother at the end of the speech, King Charles said: 'To my darling Mama, as you begin your last great journey to join my dear late Papa, I want simply to say this: thank you. <br>'Thank you for your love and devotion to our family and to the family of nations you have served so diligently all these years. <br>'May 'flights of angels sing thee to thy rest'.'<br>This evening's service at St Paul's was attended by 2,000 members of the public who were handed tickets on
