Prince Harry tensed up when discussing the Queen and his brother William in his eye-opening interview with James Corden, an expert claims.

The Duke of Sussex's surprise chat to the British talk show host saw the pair touring Los Angeles on an open top bus while enjoying afternoon tea.

Subjects ranged from Harry and Meghan Markle's love and their son Archie to his claim the media forced the family out of the UK.

Body language professional Judi James has spoken to The Mirror after taking a close look at his on-screen behaviour during the interview.

The Late Late Show appearance unveiled a rarely seen side of the former royal as he rapped, danced and spoke candidly on a variety uncomfortable topics.

Judi says there was clear joy when speaking about his boy and wife Meghan.

But it came in stark contrast to his tense responses when quizzed about brother Prince William and The Queen, she observes.

According to Judi, as he discusses his grandmother with Corden, the Prince becomes instantly protective and guarded.

She says that as the host jokes about playing Prince William on The Crown, Harry becomes suddenly serious and as his smile vanishes into a blank poker face.

But she says his clearest reaction came during his explanation about why he "stepped back, not down" from his duties in the UK.

Judi noted Harry appears dismissive and even "sad" while opening up about his role.

She told the publication: "If this skit is representative of the kind of rules Harry prefers when handling the press and dealing with his own privacy, it would be very easy to see some confusing and possibly conflicting-looking messages.

"This is very much ‘celebrity’ Harry – or ‘Haz’ as we discover he likes to be called by ‘Meg’ – and the congruence or lack of it at certain points of his interview provide interesting clues about his levels of comfort and desire to be open, or the possible discomfort and desire for privacy.

"Waiting in the street to be ‘surprised’ by the arrival of the bus, Harry places his hands on his hips to create an air of confidence, and he even rolls his shoulders as though prepping for a physical fight.

"His first pose when sitting opposite Corden suggests some pre-interview anxiety as he performs a finger-pick ritual and seems to be leaning away from his host."

She added: "But then comes the first moment of ‘confiding’ in Corden, telling him that he was ‘not allowed to’ go on open-top buses in the UK, and the way he pushes his chin out and drops his voice suggests the sense of restrictions in his life as a royal.

"Harry dresses like Corden and happily plays along with his host, showing what looks like a desire to perform as a celebrity in front of the camera.

"He even raps a bit before joining in the double-act comedy on a trip to the loo and even walks away from the two-man ‘sketch’ leaping and prancing like an excited kid."
