‘Awkward’ Harry ‘quietly suffering’ alongside Meghan Markle after being ‘outranked’ by A-lister at Katy Perry gig | The Sun

THE Duke and Duchess of Sussex had a glam date night at Katy Perry’s Las Vegas concert, but “awkward” Harry looked like a “fish out of water”, claims a body language expert.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle watched the show from VIP seats with singer Celine Dion at the Resorts World Theatre on Saturday.

The couple were seen chatting to A-list guests at the event, but Prince Harry appeared rather “uncomfortable”, according to Judi James.

The body language pro told Fabulous: “Harry might like to relish his role as the ‘cool one’ of the royal family but that is an extremely low bar and seeing him mingling in the world of Hollywood celebrity again here his body language does define him as the proverbial fish out of water.

“It was Celine Dion getting all the fuss and star treatment here, while Harry appeared to be queuing to walk past her. 

“In the UK he would have never been upstaged or outranked by a celebrity.

“He almost looks uncomfortable or even shy in this type of environment: keen to look fun for Meghan, but quietly possibly suffering inside too.”

Judi observed that Meghan appeared much more at ease at the gig, as she had done when they attended Beyonce’s Renaissance world tour show in California in September.

Despite Beyonce’s spectacular set, an unsmiling Prince Harry was observed with his arms stuffed in his pockets.

Judi added of the Duchess of Sussex at Katy’s show: “While Meghan clearly enjoys the concert, smiling and getting up out of her seat to clap and dance, Harry’s body language responses seem to fluctuate between extremes, as they did at the Beyonce concert.

“One minute he is laughing with his wife and leaning to chat with her friends but the next there is this facial expression of detachment and a look of awkwardness.

“As a royal he would have inhabited royal boxes and private enclosures but here he is looking for his seat like any other punter, wandering into the wrong place and having to be tapped on the back by an usher and shown which row he is actually sitting in.”

Meghan, 42, opted for a sparkling, gem-encrusted black outfit and blazer while Harry kept it cool with a dark suit and matching shirt.

Katy thrilled Britain with her electrifying performance at King Charles and Queen Camilla's Coronation concert this summer.

After her Windsor Castle set she thanked His Majesty gushing: "I got to bring my mum and stay in a castle!"

But the American, 39, sent shock waves around the world when she blasted Meghan's 2018 Givenchy wedding dress.

She said: "I would've done one more fitting."

Despite Katy's dismissal, the Sussexes still turned out to support Perry sing hits such as Roar and California Gurls on Saturday night.

Meghan was spotted singing along and even standing up and clapping her hands as Perry blasted out her hits.

The singer donned numerous outfits for the gig, one of the last on her 'Play' residency in Vegas.

Costumes included a dazzling yellow and orange dress, featuring cut-out details and she later threw on a white frock with black and white thigh-high boots.

The Sussexes are neighbours with Katy Perry and her fiancé Orlando Bloom in Montecito, California.

Perry and Bloom purchased the $14.2 million compound in 2020 from former Duracell and Chrysler boss Robert Kidder.

It boasts stunning ocean views over the Pacific Ocean.

It comes as Meghan and Harry could be plotting a comeback tell-all book, royal author Tom Bower has alleged.

He told The Times: “It will be Meghan’s truth.
