A body language expert claims Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are morphing into another famous power couple: John and Yoko.
Since breaking away from the Royal Family and moving to California, the Sussexes have embraced a more Bohemian sense of style as well as becoming more outspoken about social justice issues.
Judi James, a body language-reading guru, recently observed Meghan during her discussion with feminist icon Gloria Steinem.
The Duchess, 39, looked relaxed while lounging outdoors for the garden conversation, sporting a large floppy hat and stylish striped wide-legged trousers.
James believes Meghan purposefully wanted to communicate that she feels much more free in her new life as a non-royal celebrity.

"With Meghan and Harry going further down what looks like the John and Yoko "power-couple-for-global-harmony" route, Meghan's emphatically casual, bohemian styling here and her free-wheeling body language place her as firmly away from royal traditions and restrictions as possible," she told Fabulous Digital.
"The woman who we once watched struggling with rules like crossing her legs at her ankles and which side to place her clutch purse is now sitting with one leg bent casually up on her chair when she's not mirroring the body language of her hero Gloria."
She added that Meghan's outfit signalled a return to laidback Californian fashion which "makes a statement" when compared with the tailored, restrictive clothing she had to wear as a royal.
Japanese artist Yoko Ono was known for wearing unusual clothing during her relationship with musician John Lennon in the 1970s. The two were often seen sporting all-white suits and matching long hair.
Harry didn't appear in the filmed discussion with Steinem so there's no way of knowing whether he too is gravitating toward a more free-spirited hippie style like his wife.
Ono was widely criticised for "breaking up the Beatles" when she got together with Lennon, and there was widespread public feeling that she had a huge amount of influence over her husband who insisted she be present in the studio at all times.
Meghan and Harry 'Find Freedom'
It was even suggested Lennon's personality and priorities changed significantly after the two married and he became much more like Ono as the two participated in protests for world peace.
The same criticism has been levelled at Harry, with some insisting he's in thrall to his American wife and left the Royal Family only because she wanted to.
Meghan told Steinem her husband is setting a "beautiful example" for son Archie by openly identifying as a feminist while still being "masculine".
She also said it was "good to be home for so many reasons", which James says was a pointed comment about her newfound happiness.
"Sitting with the famous feminist she looks keen to show that she now has all the freedom that she craved while she was in the UK," the body language expert said.
"She also leaves the 'happy to have left' comment hanging in the air with a 'for so many reasons' and a knowing smile to suggest she’s being tactful but a nod to suggest Gloria gets it."
