Royal fan claims Kate Middleton ignored Camilla Parker Bowles in awkward clip
Kate Middleton was filmed welcoming the European royals at the Order of the Garter earlier this month.
Kate was spotted stopping for a chat with Queen Letizia, of Spain, outside of the service.
Camilla Parker Bowles, who at the time had her back towards the pair, was on hand to escort the royals to the church service at the event that recognises people for their public service.
But when the Duchess of Cornwall turned around, appearing to join in on the conversation, she was faced with silence.
She was spotted smiling and nodding her head after appearing to receive the cold shoulder.
At one point, both Kate and Camilla were talking at the same time which appeared to end with the younger royal speaking over her step-mother-in-law.
Camilla turned her back and began walking away, seeing the Queen of Spain and Kate follow behind moments later.
But the clip has since been circulated on Twitter with one user claiming the Duchess of Cambridge was ignoring her relative.
However, following on from the internet backlash a body language expert claimed Kate and Letizia did acknowledge Camilla.
Speaking to the Express Judi James said: “I’m sure we’ve all experienced that moment when you try to break into a new group at a social function only to find yourself slightly frozen out because they’re having such a very good time chatting together.
“Kate especially appears to be enjoying explaining something to Letizia, who in return looks totally engrossed.
“Kate’s active gesticulation defines her enthusiasm for the topic and the way Letizia mimics one of her hand gestures hints at a moment of genuine rapport.”
It comes after Prince Charles is continuing preparations for becoming King as he marks 50 years as the Prince of Wales.
