Despite the fact the royals put on a united front on Christmas Day, new footage shared across social media has some fans asking whether it was actually Prince William giving Meghan the cold shoulder.

It was the first time the public had seen the Fab Four together since the Remembrance Day services in November and local well-wishers gathered to greet the royal couples.

But while body language experts claimed it was Meghan and sister-in-law Kate that appeared to be ‘trying too hard’, a brief exchange – if you can call it that – between Meghan and William has now caused a stir online.

Footage of the couples leaving St Mary Magdalene Church at Sandringham was shared to both Instagram and Twitter, and looks to show Meghan turning to have a quick chat to Will.

But the future King doesn’t even make catch contact and instead is very focused on fixing his scarf.

“Does he like Meghan,” one fan asked on Twitter.

“What on earth is he doing,” another pointed out.

On Wednesday, body language expert Judi James believed the lack of ease between Prince Harry and Prince William actually revealed the truth about the alleged family tensions that had been making headlines.

“They’ve both got their hands stuck in their pockets and I didn’t see any connection signals between them at all,” she told the Daily Mail.

Reports previously suggested Prince Harry accused his brother of trying to “wreck his relationship” with Meghan, after Wills voiced concerns about the former Suits star when the couple first started dating.
