Did Prince Harry make the sign of the devil at Melania?

Everyone loves a good conspiracy theory, and within hours of Melania Trump meeting Prince Harry the internet has provided the goods once again.

The First Lady met Prince Harry ahead of the Invictus Games, the pair posing for the cameras and having a quick catch up before the opening ceremony.

But just hours later, Twitter was quick to notice Harry’s odd hand gesture in all the photos.

He’s basically making the sign of the horns – the hand signal of the devil – according to eagled eyed viewers.

And before you say, he was just adjusting his suit for the photos – have a look at the footage. He actually holds the pose for a full 16 seconds.

A body language expert says Prince Harry, who is generally laid back and welcoming, was actually subdued and restrained and didn't want to appear to be too excited about his sit-down with the First Lady.

Patti Wood, who has studied body language for decades, told the Daily Mail online that it looked like the Prince was 'protecting himself during the interaction'.

She went on to explain that his reluctant smile also revealed his nervousness at being seen to enjoy the meeting.

It's a stark contrast to when he was comfortable, masculine and his normal self when meeting Michelle Obama.
